Mean Girls Yarn Club!! Come on and Join!

Hey Everyone!

I would like post some info on a great yarn club with a great name that is currently open for enrollment! Mean Girls Yarn Club!! How awesome is that name!??!?! It is affordable(in my opinion) and looks like you get a great amount of yarn for the money! Here is some of the roolz from the website but see the link below for all the details and more info on the club itself! When you sign up, list list the name of me and/or my videocast, Knittin on the Fly, in the "special instructions to the seller". To be honest, she is doing a promotional drawing for podcasters, bloggers, etc, that we get an entry into a drawing for a skein of yarn or for a membership. Here is the link if you are a blogger, podcaster, videocaster, etc. So go check it out and see if you wanna join... I might join anyway... and give away the stuff, if I'd be lucky enough to win! :) Enjoy!!!!

Here is the direct link:

MGYC details!!

The Roolz.(copied from the website of Mean Girls Yarn Club as a interest peaker!)

* The cost: $150 for the entire year, payable either in 1 lump sum, or in three $50 installments. This includes priority shipping for domestic members, ground shipping for accented domestic and international members.
* Canadian and Mexican members shall be considered “Accented Domestic Members”.
* First shipment goes out in August, 2011. Shipments will go out every other month for 1 year.
* Membership will be limited to 50 people.
* The colorways are to be club exclusives. It’s all super secret until you get your installment. It will remain super secret for no less than 2 weeks after the shipments are sent. NO SPOILERS ALLOWED!
* There will be a waiting list for those of you too slow on the uptake/with the clicky finger.
* For those members who choose the payment plan, members will make their initial payment when they sign up, and then be billed the final payments in October and again in February for the remaining balance. Please note, these payments are 4 months apart.
* If members choosing the payment plan become delinquent in payment, their membership shall be forfeit if their account becomes 30-days past due, and the remainder of their membership will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
* If you opt for the payment plan, and find you need to cancel your membership…too bad. Just kidding. Please feel free to notify me privately. I will not bite your head off…well, maybe just a nibble.
* It is the member’s responsibility to notify me if their desired mailing address differs from the one listed in Paypal. It is also the member’s responsibility to notify me in a timely manner if their address changes. If I wanted to I could read your minds, but I prefer to use my evil powers for, well…evil.
* IF for whatever lame reason, you are displeased with your yarn, (and we don’t see why you would be. This is the MGYC, it’s implied that you get what you get and you like it) anyhow… if for some reason you and your colorway aren’t getting along, just follow these simple rules…

1. First and foremost…NO WANKING ALLOWED!
2. Email La or Tareshen aka The Evil Adminion, and in 50 words or less inform us of your decision.
3. We’ll put the word out to your fellow members that there’s an unloved, neglected, ABUSED skein of MGYC yarn out there in need of a good home.
4. We’ll put the abandoner/adopter in touch with each other, and you all can iron out all the payment/shipping details to your little black hearts’ content.
5. If, in the unlikely event that no one wants your castoff, you can do with it what you will, but only after 6 months.
6. If all else fails, see rule #1.

Episode 19: Progress


Flying the new job this week, 1 shuttle day, trip to PA, and workshop day to Boston area. Loving it! The plane is awesome and the I like the people! What a great combination! Took a few people flying this week: My honey's nephew and his little friend and Honey and I went one night and took Heather, (Boutrosbabe) flying on Friday! All parties loved it! Wednesday I met up with Heather and Knitterphreek on Wednesday to have lunch and hang out on Heather's birthday! She got some great presents, I'm sure she'll share in her podcast on Sunday!

New Viewers this week, lots of new friends on Rav and Plurk. Views have dropped, hoping its just summertime and not that I'm turning people off or driving them away. VKN troubles still, dumb computer. My opinion of Jared Flood and Stephen West. Hope no one hates me because of it!!
