Club Starts Tonight… Are you Ready?

Club Starts Tonight

Are You Ready!?

Midnight will be here before you know it and this club is HOT!
We will keep the sales open only until our limited spots are filled.
So, don’t delay; we think this one will go fast!


We have totally redesigned this club from the ground up so there have been a number of questions. Here are some of the answers…
1. Sign up begins tonight at Midnight EST!
2. We have three limited time only yarn bases available in this club.
3. You are not guaranteed a sample of the new bases unless you add on the Sample Upgrade.
4. All bases, including the limited time bases, are available for order after the last shipment goes out in Post Club.
5. Petites are available for the first time as an add on option in this Club. They will be dyed at the same time as your main product.
6. In our new Create Your Own Package, you can chose as few or as many products as you like! This may mean, you will receive fewer than three shipments.
7. If you would like more clarification on the operation of this package, take a look at this product.


Summer 2017 Twisted Fiber Art Club:

Bread and Roses

Club Summer 2017

The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.” -Rose Schneiderman

This phrase inspired a movement, a poem, a song, and more. It was used to address the working conditions and wages afforded workers, particularly women, in the textile industry. She believed that they had a right to something more than subsistence living.

We, as a woman owned and operated business, appreciate what Ms. Schneiderman did for so many, the effects of which are still felt today. In homage to this visionary, we bring you our “Bread and Roses” club. Each collection tailored to a palate reminiscent of its name.

“Bread”

Vintage style and war era victory gardens, the simplicity of the minimal has a beauty all its own. This collection has been washed with a sepia overtone and represents the style and practicality of our nation’s past. Necessity and utility drive the soft colors and overall feel of this collection where function creates design.
Club Summer 2017

“Roses”

This Collection represents the generosity of Schneiderman’s vision. A rich palette of vibrant saturated color plucked from the wardrobes and ornaments of the fortunate. Beauty, finery, and individuality weave their magic in this group of colorways.
Club Summer 2017


Here’s How it Works:

Details, Details…

  • There are two Color Inspiration Boards linked through the pictures above. Each board represents three colorways. We design first then find photos with the same colors and general “vibe”.
  • Colorways are designed exclusively for this club, and won’t be available to the general public for at least a year (often never!).
  • The colorways remain a surprise until you receive your package each month.
  • Your package is based on what you select from a variety of our most popular yarns and rovings, as well as which Inspiration Board you choose. There are choices in Striping, Evolution, Roving, and several Variety packs.
  • New options this club! We have NEVER BEFORE SEEN BASES in several of our packages and a CREATE YOUR OWN CLUB where YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN PACKAGE!!!
  • Twisted Samples! This option is your ticket to post club bliss! The Sample Membership is a fantastic way to preview all the colorways and join in the anticipation of a monthly surprise delivered right to your door.
  • The Sample option is also available as an upgrade to your Club. Each monthly shipment will include 4 samples to allow you to preview all club colorways on different bases prior to Post Club.
  • Sign up begins on Friday, June 23rd at 12 am EST. There are a limited number of spots available. Club sales will remain open until the club is full; usually about two weeks.
  • Shipments are scheduled for August, September, and November.

Twisted News:

What’s New?

Brace Yourselves… Club is Coming!
Club sign up will begin June 23, 2017. This club is going to be something really special! We are trying some fun new ideas with our packages based on your recommendations. The colorways are finished and the theme has been chosen; all that is left is to figure out what bases and sizes we can dye to make you most happy. Visit the CLUB IS COMING thread in our Ravelry group to share your ideas or post your wish list! We are listening. This is going to be YOUR club. We will keep most of the old favorites around, but there will be so many new offerings and extreme surprises you are going to think we have lost our minds. Let me tell you, we have! We just hope we can pull it all together…

Seriously people we might be a little coocoo in the coconut!!!

On the Road!
Fiber Festivals and events are a great way for us to connect to with our customers. As we grow our little company, we try to get out of our comfort zone (the midwest is that for us) and venture out into the wide wide world! We have added 2 new West coast shows to our itinerary this year. We were at Stitches West in Santa Clara California this past winter. And, in November of this year, we will be attending the brand New Stitches SoCal event in Passadena California! We are so excited to get in on the ground floor of this exciting event.

Visit our booth for these special show promotions!

  • Wear your FO made entirely with our yarn and receive 15% off one cake of yarn!
  • Buy any cake of yarn at a show and get entered into a drawing for a $50 git certificate!

Grocery Girls Feature:

You Guys!

If you are not an avid follower of the Grocery Girls video podcast, you should be! These Canadian sisters from Edmonton, Alberta are a riot and they have EXCELENT taste in yarn! One of our very talented customers papdevaney started an etsy shop called A Knitters Satchel and partnered with us to do a give away on their show. The feedback we have received has been wonderful! Take a few minutes and take a look at the excerpt we created of the episode where they ooh and awe over our yarn and Pat’s bags. You guys! (Don’t you just love it when Jodi says that!)

Paramour TL

bluesadiction never disappoints with her amazing photography. Take her Groovestar shawl for example. This simple pattern by Annie Baker, knit in Paramour on Tasty, shows how amazing a project can be when done using an evolution.
Let the color be the star!

Blaze MS

Blush of Spring!
I am always amazed at how different colorways look on our different bases. When I think of Blaze I picture fierce orange, yellow, and magenta. But here on Muse it take on a soft almost glowing property. Radicalweft made a fantastic choice for this delicate lace shawl by Evelyn A Clark.

Sangria AL

Club exclusive!
With club looming in the very near future I thought it might be fun to highlight one of my favorite exclusive club colorways. Sangria is so bright and cheerful and the magenta/purple end of it makes it very wearable. 2frecledroit was Having a Sangria in Carson City! This pattern from Romi Hill is such an interesting combination of pattern and texture!
