IMG_20150714_183541_medium.jpg

4. A club subscription

For the club subscription prize, the value will be for one basic club including three large bags + extras. The way my club works is that people can choose the number of bags they want, the size of bags they want, the size of stitch markers they want and then they tell me what themes and colours they love. I then put together a surprise package for them.
Should the person who wins the club want sizes that are different than the large, we can discuss that privately and work out something to the same approximate value. I will also have them fill out the questionnaire for me.

If you’re going to be talking about the club on the podcast at all and would like to get all the details, you can find them in the listing here. If you have any questions please ask!
