❦ Limited Edition POPpy Wedge Bag: Pre-Orders open October 6 ❦

The Back Story:

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection was designed to tie in with Indie Untangled’s Knitting Our National Parks Project. I will offer an exclusive yarny accessory to coincide with the release of each 2017 yarn installment.

The item will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 pieces is sold out, whichever comes first. (Please note that all previous releases have sold out in twelve hours.)

All items in the collection feature delightful fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s “Soda Nation” Collection; the October bags have cheerful yellow swirl lining.

Here’s What’s New!

I’m pleased to introduce the third item in this collection, That Clever Clementine’s POPpy bag, released to coincide with Jill Draper’s eye-popping “Walk in the Park” and “Desert Dusk” colorways. My zip pouches are always popular, but this one is extra special — I’m making sweet little Pop Bottle zipper pulls for you!

In addition to holding small-to-medium size knitting/crochet projects, folks say they use these bags to tote all kinds of things — cosmetics, jewelry, phones, and other small items. This one is a terrific size, spacious and yet not too large, and sturdily interfaced. I think you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag, so if you’re going to pop for one new yarny accessory this month, I hope you’ll consider this one.

This Limited Edition item is $36, plus $4 s/h (sorry, US only).

Ordering Info:
• Pre-orders open at 9:00 a.m. EDT, October 6, at ThatCleverClementine.com.
• Order period closes when 24 bags sell out, no later than midnight EDT October 20, 2017.
• Orders will ship on or before November 22, 2017.

The Fine Print:
• This bag is slightly wedge-shaped, so a bit wider at the top than the bottom. At the top, it measures about 11″ wide; it is about 9.5″ tall (28 cm x 24 cm) when measured flat. The bag’s base is about 3.5″ (8.25 cm) deep.
• As with all handsewn items, please expect some minor variations. In particular, print placement will vary, so you will not get the exact assortment of pop caps you see here.
• All items are made by me, in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

Limited Edition Project Bags by the Oak Grove Quilter

It’s the six month anniversary of Asylum Fibers! To celebrate this little milestone, the Oak Grove Quilter (who happens to be my brilliant mother) made some fabulous limited edition project bags. These high-quality bags are the perfect size for a wide variety of projects. I even fit a short-sleeved sweater in mine!

Description:

– The outer fabric is a blood splatter print by Robert Kaufman and the interior and zipper are red.
– The stand-out feature of this bag is the metal bar encased along the edge of the zipper, which holds the bag open when unzipped so it acts as a yarn bowl.
– There is one inner pocket measuring 6″ x 3″, bearing the Asylum Fibers Logo.
– Overall dimensions are 9″ long x 4″ wide x 6″ tall.
– The interfacing used between the outer fabric and the lining give this bag a real sturdiness that’s hard to find in similar products.

More than just a shop update

Dia duit, friend!

I’ve got a shop update happening this week — but not just this week! I’ve changed my update schedule to every week instead of every other week. This will give everyone an opportunity to snag what they love! For the next few weeks I’ve got some gorgeous colorways that are perfect for Autumn.

Additionally, in case you haven’t heard — I’m teaming up with 9 other AMAZING dyers to bring you the Indie Artist Yarn Collective mini kits! These gorgeous kits will have a mini skein from each dyer plus a beautiful matching project bag. There are two kits — Flick Faves, which has colorways inspired by each dyer’s favorite movie and Something Wicked, featuring spooky colorways from the wicked imagination of each dyer. One of my favorite movie is Steel Magnolias and I’ve always wanted to make a colorway like that armadillo cake! My wicked colorway is inspired by black cats and their haunting eyes. The dyers are Black Cat Fibers, Darn Yarn MN, Hulahut Yarns, Leon Alexander, Old Crow Art Yarns, SewhappyJane, Siren String Arts, Tinsel Factory, Wee Chickadee Woolery, and yours truly. You can buy your kit here and then join us in the Facebook group here.

And finally, have you heard of The Yarnpreneur Society? Not sure what a Yarnpreneur is? Well, if you have a business in the fiber industry then you’re a Yarnpreneur and need to join us! We’ll help you grow your passion from a hobby business to a thriving, sustainable business you can be proud of. Join us here!

Summer is finally coming to an end (thank goodness, I hate it! lol) and Autumn will be here soon! There will be Pumpkin Spice everything, gorgeous landscapes from Mother Nature, cool crisp evenings, and we won’t have to sweat under our latest WIP. I can’t wait!

Slán leat,
Melanie

❦ Limited Edition SNAPdragon Pouch: Pre-Orders open August 4 ❦

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection was designed to tie-in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project. Debut of a new exclusive yarny accessory will coincide with the release of each yarn installment (June, August, October, December). These items will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 items is sold out, whichever comes first.

All items in the collection will feature the same wonderful exterior fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s Soda Nation Collection. The August pouches have cheerful green “Spring Spin” lining. Subsequent installments of the project will each feature a different complementary lining, so items will be coordinated but not matchy-matchy.

I’m pleased to introduce the second item in this collection, my SNAPdragon pouch, released to coincide with Pigeonroof Studios’ eye-popping “Mountains and Valleys” colorway. This bag is available for pre-order starting August 4; you will receive your bag in late September. If you’re going to pop for one new yarny accessory this month, here’s one to make your eyes pop!

SNAPdragon has always been one of my most popular items; people tell me they use it for knitting notions, cosmetics, jewelry, phones, and other small items. I’ve even known people who use it as a mini-project bag — I haven’t tried it myself, but I’m told it will hold half a skein, caked up, and a sock work-in-progress.

This eye-catching little bag will fit easily into your purse, totebag, or larger project bag, and I’m sure you’ll find many uses for it. You’ll be surprised at its capacity, and at just $15 a pop, you’ll get a lot of use from this handy bag!

It’s also lovely for anyone with limited mobility, as there are no zippers or buttons to fumble with. Simply tug gently on the ribbon pulls, and the pouch snaps right open.

• This is a Limited Edition of 24 items, available for pre-order August 4, 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
• Order period closes when bags sell out, no later than midnight Eastern Time, August 18, 2017. (Please note, previous round of items sold out in twelve hours.)
• Orders will ship on or before September 30, 2017.
• Sorry, for this round, USA shipping only.
