The Lace Lovers Club 2013

The Lace Lovers Club was launched in 2012 and has been a big success.

Members have been enjoying monthly parcels containing a skein of luxury, hand-dyed yarn and a lace pattern. For the first month you'll also receive a Lace Basics booklet (teaching you how to knit lace) and a tin of gorgeous Fripperies & Bibelots handmade, beaded stitch markers which are perfect for lace knitting.

The first month you'll receive a skein of sock yarn, the second month you'll receive a skein of heavy lace (800m/100gr) and the third month a skein of fine lace (1200m/100gr) plus a suitable pattern each month. There will be some exclusive new patterns next year.

The yarn bases used in the past includes baby camel/silk, merino/silk, bluefaced leicester/silk, merino/bamboo and sparkly merino/silk/stellina. All very luxurious!

Don't miss out on this monthly treat. You deserve it!

Want to treat a favourite knitter? It'll make the perfect Christmas present. 
Let me know when you order and I'll send them a Christmas card with details of when they can expect their first parcel.

You can sign up now for January to March 2013.

Former and current members are loving this club and this is what some of them have said:

" this is the first lace club I have ever signed up for, you get beautiful yarn every month, it's exciting getting the post and ripping it open to see what colour it is, and has introduced me to different yarn bases and colours that I would not normally have bought and be really surprised how much I have loved them. Then there are the fabulous patterns, you get a choice to pick from each month. I am currently on my 2nd lot of the club and have decided that it's going to be my little bit of luxury and a treat to myself. "
Karen B, Scotland
"The lace club has given me a wonderful opportunity to sample a variety of lovely yarns and colours, and it's great fun choosing the patterns from Anni's recommendations.  It's really boosted my interest in lace knitting.  Thank you."
Anne A, England

"I am LOVING the monthly mystery parcel that arrives in my mail box! It's so beautiful! Thank you!"
Robbin R, USA
'Your yarn club is amazing, challenging me to try new things every month:-) The yarns are beautiful and varied and so good I signed up twice'.
Gwen F, Scotland
The retail price of this club is over £70.
Prices have increased a bit for next year. I did some numbers and realised that with the 2012 prices I was hardly making any profit on this club and its a lot of work. Prepping the yarn for dyeing and dyeing the yarn takes a day and labelling the yarn, printing the newsletter and packing the parcels takes at least half a day.So with the extra admin that's at least 2 full days each month. But I love it and as long as members enjoy taking part I will continue with the club and I'm really excited about 2013.

So what are you waiting for? Join now!
