Sock and Yarn Clubs

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile. Let's see, my husband has been traveling globally since the end of March, we've had lots of birthdays, and most recently I live in Palm Bay which is at the heart of all the crazy Central Florida wildfires. The closest fire to me was about a half mile, and my sister's house was one of three-five on her street that were spared. You could see 50 ft flames from her backyard. These fires have even made the 3rd page of USA Today newspaper and a mention on CNN. 
But anyway, I digress, back to the good stuff! :) My first sock and yarn clubs are well underway. I have closed signups as of May 10th and we have 7 crafters on-board. This season's themes are "Socks or the Bard" (Shakespearean inspired sock yarn colorways), and the "Time Machine yarn club" (various weights and textures based on notorious and famous historical figures from around the globe throughout time). I have also just finished dyeing up the first batches, so the colorways for both clubs, for the June installment, are ready for shipment. Just a reminder to participants, I will be sending out PayPal invoices this Saturday, May 16, 2008 and will thus need your email if I do not already have it. Thanks! :) I'm pleased as punch with how the new colorways have turned out. I look forward to hearing everyones' responses and finding out what you all decide to create with your new yarnie goodies! ;)

where do you post your sock club info? I'd be interested in seeing what you have offered before and possibily sign up for a future one.

Thanks!

Hi Deb,

Thanks for the interest!! :D I'll post info on here occasionally, (when I've been disciplined enough ;P ) But I always post on my Ravery group at http://www.ravelry.com/groups/fresh-from-the-cauldron. You can view past colorways on my Flickr page. my username on Flickr is "Squibstitcher" as well.
Now that I see that there is some interest from others than just on Ravelry, I'll be more diligent about keeping up blog posts about shop updates including clubs. The next club is scheduled for May 2009 and it is "Wizard of Oz". I'm currrently midway through two clubs:
"Socks of the Bard" sock club: bi-monthly shipments of Shakespeare inspired colorways
and
"Time Machine" yarn club: bi-monthly shipments of various bases/weights with a historical theme. Colorways are inspired by famous and/or notorious historical figures.(i.e. Genghis Kahn, Marie Antoinette, etc.)
