                                Each month a "Surprise Limited Color"!
Announcing the Stitch Together Sock Yarn of the Month Club!
Starting this month, Cindy's Northern Crafts will receive a shipment of an exclusive, limited edition color of Stitch Together sock yarn .  These colorways will be dyed in a small batch just one time, and we will only receive 1 bag - that's 10 skeins - of the yarn.  With such a limited quantity available, we wanted to find a way to guarantee that those who will really enjoy these unique yarns will have a chance to purchase them, regardless of where you live or how often you are able to visit the store.  Sooooo... we're starting a Stitch Together Sock Yarn of the Month Club! How will it work?  Simple: you sign up to be part of the club, giving us permission to charge the card of your choice for payment each time, and when the yarn comes in we will send it to you.  It's that easy to receive a limited edition skein of sock yarn in your mail every other month!  Or, if you live locally, we can ring it up for you and have it waiting for you to pick up.  (And who knows - there might even be a little bonus surprise in your envelope or bag....) 
The price for the Stitch Together Sock Yarn of the Month Club is $34.95 plus applicable sales tax per shipment, including priority shipping, or $27.95 plus tax for local pickup.  Right now the club is scheduled to run for 6 months, but depending on response it may be extended.  You may cancel future deliveries at any time by letting us know at least one week before the next shipment is due to arrive.
We will register people in the yarn club on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't let time slip by you on these special limited editions of Stitch Together yarns.  Join the club today! now (231) 439-9221!
