We’re getting ready for another brand new year of the SweetGeorgia Yarns Fibre Club. Just last week, I mailed out our 12th installment of Fibre Club offerings… members are still receiving them so I won’t be posting photos of it yet…. but you can follow along on the Ravelry group! Having never offered a fibre club before, I have had so much fun this past year thinking of things to dye and showcase. I’ve had the chance to play with all sorts of fibres that I rarely work with… including Falkland (which seems to be popular with spinners), Shetland, tussah silk and Tencel.

December 2009 Installment: Falkland wool dyed up in “Winter Spice”

December 2009 Installment: Tough Love Sock dyed up in “Winter Spice”

Occasionally this past year, I’ve had a couple fibre club members subscribe but not realize that it was actually spinning fibre. And since they didn’t actually know how to spin, I was perfectly happy to dye up some sock yarn skeins as substitutes for the fibre.

November 2009 Installment: Wensleydale dyed up in “Sea to Sky” (one of three fibres in the installment)
November 2009 Installment: Superwash BFL dyed up in “Sea to Sky” (one of three fibres in the installment)

I’m enjoying the creative freedom in being able to dye new colourways and play with some luxurious new blends. I’m even tempted to offer a “Yarn Club” type subscription if enough people are interested.

Want to join us for our second year of Fibre Club? We’re taking new subscriptions now on the online shop and you can always follow along with our Ravelry group. The Fibre Club members have all been so positive and active about spinning up their fibre and posting photos. Reminds me that I need to finish spinning the Wensleydale in my own set of November fibres.
