Do you love to read? Do you love to read books about witches? Do you like to get together with other fiber artists and talk about books? Do you love yarn? Well, this is the book club for you! Each month we will get together on the Thursday closest to the change of the zodiac to discuss a book that features witches! Plus, we will have a yarn available each month that corresponds to that book. What could be better? As a bonus you can even choose the base you want for your yarn! You can buy it monthly, or save 5% and subscribe with automatic renewals. Check back each month to find out what book we are going to read next as well as what yarn we are going to feature. Each book discussion will be held in a Zoom session (link to be announced later) beginning at 7:30pm and lasting for about an hour each time. Be sure to bring your tea and fiber work as we chat about our favorite characters.
Deadlines for the current month's yarn will be the 15th of each month. All orders placed after the 15th will be held until the following month. The July book's yarn that is going out is The Witches of Willow Cove by Josh Roberts. If you wish to purchase a past month's yarn, please visit their own listings.
The dates for the 2021 club will be: August 19, September 23, October 21, November 18, and December 16.

The September book will be The Midnight Witch by Paula Brackston
Synopsis: Lady Lilith Montgomery is the daughter of the sixth Duke of Radnor. She is one of the most beautiful young women in London and engaged to the city's most eligible bachelor. She is also a witch. When her father dies, her hapless brother Freddie takes on his title. But it is Lilith, instructed in the art of necromancy, who inherits their father's role as Head Witch of the Lazarus Coven. And it is Lilith who must face the threat of the Sentinels, a powerful group of sorcerers, who are intent on reclaiming the Elixir from the coven's guardianship for their own dark purposes. Lilith knows the Lazarus creed: secrecy and silence. To abandon either would put both the coven and all she holds dear in grave danger. She has spent her life honoring it, right down to her engagement to her childhood friend and fellow witch, Viscount Louis Harcourt. That is, until the day she meets Bram, a talented artist who is neither a witch nor a member of her class. With him, she must not be secret and silent. Despite her loyalty to the coven and duty to her family, Lilith cannot keep her life as a witch hidden from the man she loves. To tell him the truth will risk everything.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
