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!
