Club 2011-12

 

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to say that even though it took me a while to recover from last year’s club, I am ready to get started again. 

The plan I have in mind is centered on an era in time that I find extremely interesting and just plain fun.

When you think of Burlesque what comes to mind? Sequins, Feathers, Glitter, Glamour, Tassels, Boas a little Comedy maybe even Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on First”? OK I admit that may be the romanticized version but that is what we will play with for the next year. The Glitz, the Glamour and the Goddesses that made up the legend of Burlesque.

The plan is for a 1 year club with 6 packages, each including a skein of yarn and some Burlesque inspired goodies. Shipments will be arriving every other month for the next year starting in August and continuing thru June of 2012. The yarns will include many of the current Tempted lines including the most recent addition, Prissy Grrl. And hey, you just never know, you may end up with the first introduction to the newest offerings, if there are any. It will also include Goodies and a couple of patterns from some of my most loved Designers. The total price is $230 for the year which includes US Shipping. All internationals will be $200 with shipping billed separately for each installment. Anyone that chooses to pay $210 up front gets a $20 Discount. If you chose the payment plan I will bill $38.33 to your pay pal account the month before the shipment is due.

So rev up your knitting needles and let’s get started! I can’t wait for you to join me in a year filled with fans, fur and flirty goodness.

If you are interested please copy and paste this form with all the info filled in and email to stacy@temptedyarns.com .

Thank you all so much for all the amazing support you continue to show.

All my Love Stacy aka Tempted

Love being a Space Grrl!

I don’t guess I blogged much about it but last fall my Little Sis and I took a little trip out to Virginia to visit Wendy Johnson and LB.  Before we headed to the Mountains to meet up with LB, Wendy took us out to explore Old town Alexandria.  It was a cool, rainy, wonderful Fall day and of course the favorite stop was the Yarn shop, Fibre Space I truely fell in love with the shop, extremely well stocked and has one of the most helpful and friendly staff I have ever seen.  Well today I am very pleased to say that Tempted is now (or will be later today) available at this wonderful store.   I am currently stalking the UPS tracking and it is out for delivery. Haha    This is just a little tease of what should be landing at Fibre Space soon, I really hope that you all like it.

This picture kinda captures what it was like to hang out at Fibre Space, can’t you see the joy on her face.  Relaxed, happy, and reeking of yarn fumes. lol  We did have a wonderful time there and if you are in the DC area it is totally worth a stop.

 

In other news the KnitGirllls SAL/KAL is in full swing and wow, there are some amazing spinners out there.  I have been having a blast following along with everyone’s progress on the Ravelry thread.  I have managed to spin a little over on ounce of my 4oz and am kinda experimenting with the colors and am really looking forward to seeing how it turns out.  I will post pictures soon.  Those of you that are spinning and knitting along please know that I am extremely proud to be a part of such an excited project and am totally blown away by all the beautiful work.
