Creatures Great and Small sign ups are open!


Sign ups for Tripping Yarn Balls Creatures Great and Small club are open! Land and sea, furry and scaly, four-legged or winged, this year’s club will feature yarns inspired by animals. Each quarter will highlight a single type of animal. Which animals? Swing by our Ravelry group for sneak peeks and previews.

Once again, Jodi of Shameless Twist, Chrystee of Play at Life Fiber Arts, and Lillian of Please Stand By will bring their own dye techniques and love of color to each month’s yarn. We’ve been sharing inspiration pictures for several months now and we’re very excited about this theme!

Every month, you will receive a gorgeous skein of hand dyed yarn as well as other surprise goodies. At least once a quarter, you will also receive an exclusive pattern designed by Celia Jones. There will also be randomly released designs as inspiration hits, so you never know when you’ll get an extra boost of fun. Come join us for this year’s trip, it’s going to be a blast!

Just as with previous years, the subscription payments begin immediately, and the first shipment will go out by June 15, 2015 and every month thereafter for the duration of your subscription. Your payments will end prior to you receiving your final shipment so that you get the complete subscription. Worldwide shipping is, as usual, included in the price.

☆☆☆Spots are all filled up! Check back in 6 months for possible 6 month spots opening!☆☆☆


New Club – Retro Toons!


Remember when cartoons only aired on Saturday mornings? We do!

The next round for the Tripping Yarn Balls club will be inspired by the cartoons of the 70s and 80s:  Jem, She-Ra, Scooby Do, the Smurfs…etc. You woke up early on Saturday mornings to watch them but now they’ll be delivered straight to your mailbox in the form of yarn.

Taking the journey with us this year will be Lillian of Please Stand By Yarns. Her self-striping and variegated yarns are the perfect medium for the cartoon theme! We are also absolutely ecstatic to have Maureen Foulds, designer of many beautiful patterns, working with us this year! Club subscriptions will include one of Maureen’s patterns per 6 month period!

As always, Jodi of Shameless Twist and Chrystee of Play at Life Fiber Arts will bring their own dye techniques and love of color to the cartoon-y table. This year, Jodi will be working with a new luscious sw merino/cashmere/nylon base. And Chrystee will be dyeing up some semisolids to coordinate with the Maki for you stripe and colorwork lovers.

6 month and yearly paid-in-full and monthly subscriptions will be available by September 15th. Spots will close the first week of October or when the club is full. Need a reminder? Please join our mail list and we’ll let you know when spots are available! Want to see what the club is about and check out our previous themes? Head on over to our Ravelry group!
