Fleece club is a 3 month delivery of fleece from this year’s clip.

The idea is that you will be introduced to varying breeds of sheep throughout the offer. These may be similar to previous years depending on what stock is available to me. These will be in small amounts that are easy to wash and process, giving you something new to play with in your spinning and felt making.

So how does it work and what do you get?

There is one easy payment at the checkout and this pays for the 3 deliveries. Each delivery will contain;

  • 2 x 50g of unwashed fleece, skirted and sorted.
  • Information about the fleece you have received and recommendations for washing, processing and spinning… if they differ from the basic instructions.
  • Plus a little gift.

The first delivery will include basic washing and processing instructions.

Colours will vary too. So for example, if I give you a white Teeswater sample, then you may receive a black Wensleydale sample. This will vary your sampling, so that you can keep track of the fleece as you spin or felt it and also introduce you to the wonderful natural shades available.

Once payment is made customers are obliged to all three shipments. Cancellations prior or during shipments will not result in refunds. This is because I will be purchasing fleeces from Farmers as early as March to cover the fleece club. However please note, this does not restrict a customer’s right to return under my Terms and Conditions of sale. Costs of this will be incurred by the buyer.

Please also note that some countries will not allow unwashed fleece through customs. Please check with your relevant government department before purchase, as I cannot be responcible for custom halts on deliveries and can not refund as a result.

Welcome to Batt Club!

Batt club is a monthly delivery of hand carded batts in exclusive club colourways.

So how does it work and what do you get? Firstly I open a new listing each month with a new monthly choice colourway. I will create this based on a predetermined theme of my choice.

There are two easy options, or dips;

  • Single dip @ £5.30 – choose either the stripe or haze batt
  • Double Dip @ £10.30 – choose both and save 30p.

Each batt weighs approx 50g.

I gather the purchases together and create your order to ship at a later date. These exclusive colourways will remain exclusive for 2 months before they are open on the site for general purchasing.

Each month I will open spots for the next colourway and you can sign up again.

There is also a Batt spin along on Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/saras-texture-crafts/2293795/1-25#7. Join in and try someting new today!

P.S. Batts are great for spinning, felt making, embellishing and other textile arts.

First of all a big, big thank you to all who came out for craft4crafters at WestPoint this last week, I had a wonderful time meeting you all and was so very pleased with the very warm reception my stand took. I have put a deposit down for next year and have asked to put on a few workshops too… so fingers crossed 2014 craft4crafters will be even more felt, fibre and fun!

If you are looking for something like what you bought at the show and can’t find it on the website, then please email me. The chances are I am preparing it for the shop update on the 8thof Feb, or I’m ordering/making more!

When I next podcast I will make sure to feature details from the show so you can see how things went. I have taken lots of video, so I just need a moment or two to sit down and edit it together.

I also plan to blog a few purchases I made in my continued bid to promote other small business independents. I didn’t get chance to buy a lot, but what I bought I love and so want to share.

 

Ok, so it’s that time already and I have opened Fibre Club 2 2013! You can find the remaining spots on the website at www.sarastexturecrafts.com and on Etsy at www.sarastexturecrafts.etsy.com. There are limited spots left after the newsletter group bought theirs and I decided to open a few more spots.

I hope everyone is having a lovely week? I’m off to get a head start on some of this paperwork and ordering… then I need to settle down to spend my evening spinning for Wonderwool in April!
