A big thank you xxx

Crafternoon Treats sock club 2019

I launched my sock club for March yesterday and sold out within just a few hours so I just wanted to add a short post to say thank you so much!

Starting a new project within dyeing is always a balance between dyeing too much and then having little interest, so a lot of yarn left over, or making only a small amount available only to disappoint some people when it sells out quickly.

Its the sort of thing you need a crystal ball for!

If you managed to snaffle a March sock club thank you – the skeins and minis are all ready and I’ll be posting everything off on Monday. I’ve sold five of the three month slots too, which means that there are still some slots available. I might offer 30 for the next three months rather than the 20 I had planned but I’m not entirely sure.

I have a bit of a question for you that will help me plan. I know everyone is different and some people like a sock club that is a complete surprise when it arrives. But others like to know which colourway they are going to get before they buy… and the two are difficult to achieve for the same sock club update.

So this is what I was thinking

  • Ten slots will be available for an individual month subscription in any month.
  • Ten slots will be available within a three month subscription.
  • Ten will be held back until all the yarn has been received by subscribers and then listed on Etsy with photos showing exactly what the colourway is like.

People who opt for the subscription beforehand will not know what the colourway is going to be and their parcel will be the surprise they want.

At the end of the month, I’ll show and tell about the colourway and if you then see it and like it and want to buy, you can.

Does this sound like a good plan?

If things really go well, I can increase the number of slots available but there will be a realistic limit as I am only a one-woman show and I want to dye lots of other scrummy yarns for my Etsy shop each month too. Oh, and podcast, vlog, blog, play in IG and stuff like that 🙂

Let me know what you think

Here are some photos of my recent sock yarns to pretty up the post but really its all about the words this time. If you have any thoughts please leave a comment xxx Kathryn xxx

    Hi Kathryn,
    I think that your solution sounds very sensible. It covers all options for us and also for you as a seller! Can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to receiving mine! I am sure that this sock club will be a great success. Will you be able to give us a reminder when our subscriptions are due for the next three months as I would hate to miss out .
    Best wishes,
    Sylvia
