Upcoming Deadlines

Art submissions for the November shipment are due by October 7th, giving you about two more weeks to send in your submission. Submissions can be emailed to and can be any medium (photography, painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, etc) as long as it was done by you, or someone close to you who gave you permission to use their art. On October 8th we will post all the submissions here on the blog for members to vote on. The piece of art selected will become the inspiration for the November shipment. We've only recieved a few submissions so far, so if you have an idea please don't hesitate to submit it. Also, be thinking about submissions for future months as well. We will need a different piece of art to inspire each and every shipment, giving you LOTS of chances to win!

The other deadline is the deadline to sign up. Signups for the November shipment end October 15th. If you sign up after that you will have to wait until January for your first shipment. Also, if you would like to change your membership to Roving rather than Yarn we'll need to know before the 15th. To make things easy to remember, October 15th will also be the day that voting on the art submissions ends, but we'll post a reminder about that on the blog.

Now with Roving!

For all you spinners our there, we've decided to expand the Color Co-op to include a roving option! The price and everything else remains the same, but instead of recieving a skein of hand dyed sock yarn you recieve an equivalent amount of hand dyed roving. And to make things even easier, you don't have to commit to yarn or fiber for more than a month at a time. Each shipment you'll have the option of yarn or fiber. Heck, if you just can't decide, order two subscriptions and get one of each! If you've already signed up and would like to switch to fiber, just send us an email at and let us know. If you haven't signed up yet, I'll be adding an option box to the sign up form.
