Crochet Club 2014

Its that time of year yet again when we reveal the design theme for the Crochet Club.

After 3 amazing years we have decided that the crochet club deserves a bit of a make over, and so, like proud expectant parents, we are delighted to announce the imminent arrival of a new and improved crochet experience for you all in 2014

The crochet club has been a phenomenal success since it’s launch in 2011 and we hope to build on this achievement in 2014 and going forward by making changes that will offer you the choice of a few different options so that you can choose how you want the crochet along experience to work for you.

The design for the 2014 crochet club project is based on 60s/70s retro floral and geometric patterns and the yarns used are from the Rowan Cotton Glace range alongside 5 bead shades from the Debbie Abrahams range. The project will measure approximately 90cm x 150cm and can be used as a wall hanging, bed panel or lap blanket.

The project includes lots of techniques, including beading and colour work and it could be used as a great learning tool because it is supported by an exclusive blog, which includes step by step tips and also by a range of technique download pdfs which aim to give as much help as possible.

Between now and the end of February 2014 you can choose either of the following two membership options:

option one:
 this option is in line with the way the crochet club has always worked

this option includes all the yarn and beads needed to complete the project, postage, 6 x monthly email patterns, all technique downloads, access to the exclusive blog and a 10% discount on sales through the JANIE CROW web site between 1.1.14 & 31.12 14

price: see membership rates on the web site here

option two:
 this option is aimed at those of you who want to use your own materials to complete the project and choose your own colour palette - we will not be giving yarn alternatives or colour palette options, so this is your chance to be creative!

this option includes 6 x email monthly patterns, all technique downloads, access to the exclusive blog and a 10% discount on sales through the JANIE CROW web site between 1.1.14 & 31.12 14

price: £49.50

please note – option one and option two will no longer be available after the end of february 2014

A materials kit, which includes the yarn and beads needed to complete the project may be available to purchase from our web site at RRP should you decide later on to purchase the yarn and beads - choosing option one prior to the beginning of the club will work out significantly cheaper than choosing option two at this stage and subsequently purchasing the materials kit

Want to see the project before you start?

We are aware that whilst the idea of a mystery project appeals to many people, there are also a large number of people who are concerned about committing to an expensive project without knowing quite what to expect 
we are also aware that lots of crocheters quite simply ‘miss the boat’ and don’t get their application for membership in fast enough, or fail to see our advertisements for the club in the right time scale

If you like the idea of following a ‘crochet along’ project, but want to see the design of the project first then you can choose to purchase the project kit and complete the project within your own time scale
the 2014 project kit will be available from the JANIE CROW web site from September 2014 at a price of £195 + P&P

This option is for patterns and yarns only – there is no ‘membership’ or access to any of the benefits listed under option one or option two
