Oops.  We said we'd tone it down a bit since last time we punched you in the face with colour, but we've done it again!  We hope you Yarn Club subscribers love it.  We promise next month will be tame ;)
Below is the yarn info and a link to a pattern which we think would be fun for this month's yarn.

Last year's Haircut Fundraiser
was such a success
that we've decided to bring it back, and
we've added braiding to the menu

FSA member and experienced hair stylist Stephanie Coleman will be back this year
from 1-5 giving amazing haircuts at amazing prices:

only $3 for bangs
and $5 for an entire cut!

Braiding Wizard Emily McIntyre will be there beween 11-1
braiding is by donation.

That's what I named this colourway...KA-POW!!! based on some of the reactions it received from subscribers.  I think I ought to tame it down a bit for future batches ;)

This year's Fibre's Student Association is continuing the Stitch Your Heart Out series with a focus on unisex triangular shawls.  All you have to do is bring yourself and $10 to each 2 hour session and we supply the rest (unless you have a particular yarn in mind for your scarf, if so - bring it).

This class is suitable for knitters with various degrees of experience, from beginner to beyond-basic knitters, since different ways of structuring the scarf will be chosen to suit individual students' knitting levels.

The first session is Wednesday September 28th at Cafe X (VA location) from 4pm - 6pm

See you there,
Remember last year when each time we revealed our monthly Yarn Club batch, you were sad that you hadn't signed up for it?  Well we're back, so you have another chance to get some gorgeous yarn in your mailbox each month.  This year there are only two opportunities for you to support the Fibres Student Association in this way.  So sign up for a three-month subscription before September 26th to receive yarn in your mailbox in October, November and December, or between September 27th and December 23rd to receive yarn in your mailbox in January, February and March.  Remember this isn't just any yarn; it's luscious hand-painted-by-us yarn.  It doesn't get better than that!

Above is the Yarn Club's March 2011 batch which was a 100% merino wool, lace weight yarn naturally dyed with indigo

Fundraising initiatives by the FSA help us to fund visiting artists, student exhibitions and educational trips :)
