Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination Club 9

After 8 years of running the Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination Club the same way every year, we. are. bored. This year, we want to shake things up. Way up. We want to be inspired, and we want you to be as well.

One photograph. Four dyers. Four colourways. One unique club.

How it works:

Before each shipment, we will call for photo submissions that will inspire the dyeing for that round of club. We will narrow down the photos submitted to 3 images and ask you, our club members, to vote for the one you would like us to interpret in the dye pots.

Each shipment will have four different unique colourways, each inspired by the winning photograph. All dyeing techniques, known and unknown, are up for grabs. Semi-solids and tonals. Variegated yarns and speckles. Who knows what our little brains will come up with (insert maniacal laughter HERE)!!

So something like this:

Might turn into something like this:

The details:

4 shipments per club year (2 shipments CaribouBaa and 2 shipments of Chameleon Sock). Each shipment, you will receive one of the four colourways that has been dyed. You will also receive notes from each dyer as to what inspired them to create the colourway as well as pattern suggestions for each colourway. At some point during the club year, you will also receive an exclusive project bag designed and created for the club.

Price:

Basic 1 skein membership: 1 skein per shipment (4 skeins per year + project bag)=$144 plus taxes and shipping

Basic 2 skein membership: 2 skeins per shipment (8 skeins per year + project bag)=$258 plus taxes and shipping

Add more skeins to your membership for $114 for each additional skein (4 skeins per year).

FAQs:

Will I be able to pick which dyer I receive yarn from or which colourway I receive? No.

Can I have all of my skeins be the same colourway or will they all be different? You can choose whether you are receiving skeins that are the same or different.

What if I don’t like my skein? You will be able to exchange your skein for another random skein of our choosing from the same shipment.

Will you still be offering mystery skeins? No.

Will the colourways be repeatable? Will I be able to order them? Yes. As a club member, you will be able to order any of the current or past SAK colours just like you normally would.

Will you be offering artisan swag? No. Instead, we are going to carry more accessories as regular stock on our website and in our shop, allowing you to pick and choose what you want for your collection. This will also allow us to highlight more artisans.

When are sign ups? Club sign ups will start Feb. 14th and run until Feb. 28, 2018.

If you have other questions or concerns about the club, please email us at help@indigodragonfly.ca with the subject line: Photo/Synthesis BEFORE signing up for the club.

We hope that you will join us for this new adventure….

Please note: There are no refunds on Clubs for any reason.
Feel free to ask us as many questions as you wish before signing up, but once you’ve signed up, you’ve committed to membership.

TERMS

Subscribing to the Club means that you agree to monthly payments withdrawn from your Paypal account for the duration of the Club, unless you have paid in full or have made other arrangements for payment.

You must ensure that your mailing address in Paypal is correct.  If you move at any point between during the club year, please inform us of your address change as soon as possible by emailing us with your new address.  We must have your new address at least 15 days prior to a Club shipment to ensure it is sent to the correct address.

There are no returns on Club memberships. If you choose the monthly payment option and cancel your Club membership through Paypal, we will continue shipping packages until the value of your payments to date is used up. No refund will be issued for partial payments. If a monthly payment fails, we will make a reasonable attempt to contact you by email (at least two times). If payment can not be resolved at that point, we will cancel your participation in the club and no refund will be made for partial club shipments. (for example, if you are paid up for the June shipment, but not for August, we will ship the June package but hold the August package until full payment is received). If you discover an issue with your Paypal account, please contact us and we will work with you to resolve your account with us. You assume responsibility for packages delivered to the wrong address, if your address is incorrect in Paypal, if you have sent us the wrong address by email or if you have not given us sufficient notice (minimum 15 days prior to a Club shipment date) to change your address in our system.

Yarn bases are subject to change at the dyer’s discretion in cases where bases are discontinued without warning or become unavailable. Bases will be replaced with something of similar value and fibre content. 

 

Comments

  1. Just received my very first ever smart-ass knitter’s skein….it is beautiful. When I showed the pattern to my husband, he was skeptical, saying it looked like something for younger girls, not someone old like me. The line is drawn, I will knit and wear it at every opportunity, just to show him that though my hair is grey, and medicare is not far away, in my mind I can still kick-ass.!

  2. Shucks! I just learned about this club, and it is too late. Could you please put me on a list to be notified for next year’s club, or to take someone’s spot if they are needing to drop out of this year’s club?
    Thanks,
    Shelba Durston

    I was just at the Kitchener Fibre Fair yesterday and heard Sean mention about the Club membership. Since you have half year memberships, is there any consideration to start an half year membership in October 2015 or do you only ship half year memberships between April and October of a participating year?

    Just wondering if I would need to wait until next year to join…
