Starting Wednesday November 22nd, you can stock up on our gorgeous yarns all at 20% off. In addition, our clubs — which already offer better pricing the longer you subscribe — will all be 10% off. We’ll also have a clearance section of discontinued bases and colorways with hefty savings of 40% off the regular price.

We’ll be including sweater quantities of Merino/Cashmere/nylon worsted weight yarn, our pre-orders for Comfort Fade Cardi Sets and our beautiful Through the Looking Glass collaboration as well if any are still in stock when the sale begins. No need to fight any crowds, you can shop this sale in your PJs Wednesday morning, on the couch while everyone naps off their turkey comas, or at work on Tuesday after things calm down.

❦ 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
