Winter 2016 Club Details

Twisted Fiber Art – Winter Yarn Club

Retro

Twisted Fiber Art – Winter Yarn Club

We hope you will join in the fun!

This club cycle was inspired by all things old made new again.  “Rustic or Retro” takes on two very different themes. The “Rustic” collection explores the natural beauty, the patinas, and textures old metals take on when left to the elements.  The “Retro” collection’s nostalgic beauty and retro colors examine innovative graphic design of Mid Century Modern and Beyond.

Choose from some of our most popular items or pick a Variety pack of some of our favorite yarns.  Then select from two color inspiration boards or let us surprise you.  At the end of the club you get exclusive access to any and all of the colorways from the club.  Check out Details, details below for more information.

No other club gives you so much choice!

Rustic

“Retro”

The color, design and architecture of the Mid century inspired the graphic artists of the time.  Pop the olive greens, citrusy oranges, and straight up teal into your martini glass and stir (or shake)!  This collection travels back to an era where the casserole was king, your coffee table resembled a bean, and only the cool cats were in orbit.

Retro

Here’s how it works

Details, Details…

  • There are two Color Inspiration Boards linked through the pictures above.  Each board represents three colorways.  We design first then find photos with the same colors and general “vibe”.
  • Colorways are designed exclusively for this club, and won’t be available to the general public for at least a year (often never!).
  • The colorways remain a surprise until you receive your package each month.
  • Your package is based on what you select from a variety of our most popular yarns and rovings, as well as which Inspiration Board you choose.  There are choices in Striping, Evolution, Roving, and several Variety packs.
  • Twisted Samples!  This option is your ticket to post club bliss! The Sample Membership is a fantastic way to preview all the colorways and join in the anticipation of a monthly surprise delivered right to your door.
  • The Sample option is also available as an upgrade to your Club.  Each monthly shipment will include 4 samples to allow you to preview all club colorways on different bases prior to Post Club.
  • Sign up begins on Friday, November 25th at 12am EST. There are a limited number of spots available. Club sales will remain open until the club is full; usually about two weeks.
  • Shipments are scheduled for Late January, Late February, andLate March.
  • Post-club:  for a limited time after the last shipment arrives, club members are able to order any of the 6 club colorways on any yarn or roving!

Published by twistedfiberart

Twisted was started in 2005 as a way to help support my family while I was a stay-at-home mom until I went back to work. Eventually I realized I was at work. I think it's safe to say that Twisted is going to be around for a while! I was lucky to start selling my handspun around the time Etsy was catching on. I learned a lot about yarn and knit fabrics and what I wanted them to look like. This information was crucial to the development of my current process. Soon I was selling lots of striping sock yarn (mostly Arial and Duchess). Demand grew and so did Twisted. Aggie came to work with me. She could skein so precisely and measure dyes so accurately! (I still miss her. But she is now a stay-at-home mom and volunteer for animal rescue and I wish her well!) While she was here we moved to our current studio space and switched to our own website. My mother, Anne, is even more experienced with computers than she is with knitting (very!). She helped a ton with the new site which allows for more options, customization and flexibility. She also does our sample knitting and lots of random yarn and computer tasks. My husband does the books and washes the yarn. Both of our kids help out as their busy schedules permit. I love having a family business! I was lucky to start selling from my own site about the time Ravelry was catching on. I think that might be the magic ingredient to my small business success! Thank you Casey and Jess! As much as I love striping sock yarn, I was longing to move in a new direction: Evolutions. This had been part of my master plan from the beginning, but sock yarn kept me busy until I couldn't hold it in any longer. Then I really needed more help! Anne Bohl joined the team and added her style and skills to the mix. She quickly became indispensable and is now a partner in the business. We are both so grateful for the opportunity to be able to put our families first while helping support our families and interact with the lovely yarn community! Thanks to all of you for making this possible! The Twisted Studio was housed in the servant's quarters of my 150 year old Italianate home for seven years until we were bursting at the seams. We are now located around the corner in a great store called Kean's - a crafter's paradise that has been run by the same family for nearly 100 years. It is the cutest store around and we are lucky to have enough space there to do the dyeing for our webstore as well as a small but beautiful retail spot. So come see us, we'd love to meet you face to face! See store hours, address and contact info here. Cheers! Meg
