Join our 3rd Annual Sock / Accessory Club for 2021 – 2022

We are thrilled to announce the start of our 2021 AK Sock and Accessory Club. This year we are again working with Alaska Dyers Raven Frog Fibers and Robin’s Nest Fiber Arts! Like last year when you joined, you will get our Summer Colorway and pattern. You will receive one skein (100g) of hand-dyed yarn every two months and an exclusively designed knitting pattern to knit either the socks or accessory for the month.  We will send you a specially hand dyed yarn skein and a one of a kind pattern with each shipment. If you join both clubs the colorways will match and we will ship them together to save on shipping costs. We are excited to offer this hand-dyed yarn and pattern club and provide you with exclusive designs from Fabulous Fiber Arts and More! This year the club’s cost is $41.95 for Sock or Accessory Club or if you join our Combo Club it’s $76.95. You can join in-store or on our website http://www.fabulousfiberarts.com or email us if you have any questions.
