New Beginnings Yarn Club

New Beginnings Yarn Club

2019 ANNUAL CLUBS ARE NOW CLOSED. IF YOU’D LIKE ADVANCED NOTICE OF OTHER CLUBS AND SPECIALS, PLEASE SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER ABOVE. THANK YOU!

This year's clubs are a bit different than past years due to my relocation to New Mexico. I've simplified the club offerings and changed the Yarn Club to include four shipments rather than 6, so club members will be receiving a shipment at the end of each quarter. I've also decided not to have a Sweater Club this year due to how much work it is and the fact that I'll most likely be working without help for the first time in about 10 years!

But, because I know many people prefer larger quantities of yarn for bigger projects, I'm offering Yarn Club in FOUR sizes, rather than just two. You can now choose single, double, triple, or quadruple skein clubs. If you would like even more than that, shoot me an email and I'm happy to work with you.

Yarn Club Details:

  • Monthly Payment Club Details: All Monthly Club options include a five percent (5%) discount off retail prices. Single Yarn Club includes one skein of yarn in each shipment, Double Yarn Club includes two skeins, Triple Yarn Club includes three skeins, and Quadruple Yarn Club includes four skeins.
  • Up-front Lump Sum Club Details: Same as above, except with a discount of ten percent (10%) off retail prices on the initial club subscription (extras are available for purchase at the regular club discount of five percent (5%)). The availability of up-front Lump Sum Club payments is much more limited than Monthly Payment options, so they may sell out quickly.
  • Each shipment also includes fun swag and surprise goodies, at a discount of approximately 20% off retail, because I love finding fun and useful things for you guys.
  • There will be a minimum of two (2) patterns included over the time period of the Yarn Club. Patterns are not exclusive to the Club, but club members will receive them at no additional cost as part of the Club subscription. A Ravelry code will be included in shipments with club patterns.
  • Colors are exclusive to the club for a period of 6 months. There will be tonal solids as well as variegated and speckled colorways included in the Club. Each month I will also create one to two complimentary and / or contrasting colors (and possibly even a kit of mini skeins) which may be purchased by current club members at a 5% discount off retail prices. 

  • Club shipments will be sent via USPS First Class or priority mail (depending upon the package weight). BE SURE TO SELECT FREE SHIPPING AT CHECK OUT AS SHIPPING COSTS ARE ALREADY INCLUDED.

Monthly club payments are billed monthly from January through August (8 total payments), for shipments going out at the end of every quarter (March, June, September, December; 4 total shipments). 

Club shipments will occur around the 25th of each shipment month (March, June, September, December). 

It's always really hard to choose which yarns to include in the Clubs. For 2019, I've selected four yarns that have been customer favorites (even Zaftig, which is a new base from 2018, but has already become a favorite for many).  All will create wonderful, soft projects and are an absolute pleasure to work with. For me, a big part of what I enjoy about knitting is the tactile pleasure of feeling the yarn in my fingers. I've also selected bases that I adore for how beautifully they take color, and how wonderful they are to wear. 

Since most are superwash they're also eminently suitable for gift and baby / child knitting, if you're so inclined. I hope you love the selections!

The following yarns are included in the 2019 Clubs. Please note that they will not ship in this exact order; which yarn ships when will be dependent upon the delivery schedule from my mill, and is an added surprise in addition to color! :-):

Sunna (fingering weight superwash Merino, Cashmere, & Silk), 356 yards per 115g skein.
Aurora (fingering weight 100% superwash Merino single ply), 400 yards per 100g skein.
Verdande (worsted weight superwash Merino, Cashmere, & Silk), 220 yards per 115g skein.
Zaftig (super bulky 100% 20.5 Fine Merino, singles), 90 yards per 150g skein.


Please be sure to subscribe to the correct club for your location! (no worries; if you subscribe to the wrong destination, I'll cancel your subscription and email you so you can resubscribe to the correct club). Be sure to choose "Free Shipping" at check-out, as shipping is already included in the cost of the club! Thank you!

Also, if you would prefer to pay the up-front lump sum payment by check, please email me at info@spirit-trail.net to coordinate this. Thank you!

Lastly, please be sure to read the Club Terms page for important information about the Clubs!
