ANNOUNCEMENT: Crochet Society Advent Calendar

We’re super excited to let you in on a little secret we’ve been keeping under our woolly hats. This has been in the works since last Christmas and it’s been SO HARD not to say anything but now the first samples have arrived, we can finally tell you all about it. Introducing the first ever Crochet Society advent calendar!

Loading component ...

Not sure what you’ll do with all that yarn? Leave that up to us – a crochet-along will launch on 1st December.

This is the biggest thing we’ve ever done – when the advent calendar is opened up, it’s four feet across! Because of this, combined with the ongoing issues with international postage, this year’s advent calendar can only be offered to yarn lovers in the UK. We hope that in the future we’ll be able to offer it to our international friends but unfortunately it’s just not possible this year.

Another very important note – this is a pre-order, which means that you will pay now to secure your advent calendar and we will post it out to you in November, in time for you to start crocheting on 1st December.

T&C’s – The Crochet Society 2020 Advent Calendar is only available to UK customers. We reserve the right to cancel any orders placed with an overseas address. All orders will be shipped in November 2020. If any other items are purchased in the same transaction as the Advent Calendar, the whole order will be shipped together in November.

    Will the CAL be exclusive to those of us that have ordered the box?

      Hi Sara!

      We’ve decided to make the Advent CAL a free online pattern, so that even if you can’t get the box itself you’ll still be able to join in all the fun in December. Make sure you’re signed up to the newsletter for updates.:)

    Will the patterns and yarn/hook stats be shared to nonUK members after release so we can buy ourselves and follow along?

    That is very sad we cannot receive this here in Australia. As Nancy Williams mentioned in her comment could you at least offer the patterns for us international subscribers. Its going to be a real bummer seeing on the Crochet Society Facebook Group all the projects made. Its kinda not really fair considering we have supported the Crochet Society as a subscribers. 😪😪😪

      from Denyse. I agree as live in Melbourne and thought you were an Australian Society. I am really disappointed as cannot receive your items by mail. I doubt if I shall renew my subscription next year.

      • Lorna Malkin Reply

        September 25, 2020 at 10:32

        Hi Denyse,

        We’re really sorry for any disappointment caused and totally appreciate it’s frustrating. We really want next year’s Advent calendar to be available worldwide. Hopefully, all of the problems with timing and shipping will be a thing of the past by then!

    Why only UK when your sending boxes internationally, not Happy! All subscribers should be able to get this offer! So disappointing.

  24. cardmakingpom Reply

    September 5, 2020 at 2:35

    Omgosh, this is so disappointing. It seems a bit strange that Im receiving the crochet boxes here in Australia but cant receive the advent calendar. I do understand the world has gone crazy, but could you not, maybe, just offer the daily videos to us, at a cost, and we could get out own supplies here? Could be a good option and that way your not upsetting everyone that supports you from other countries. Just a thought guys.
    Kindest Regards
    Lorraine

    What? This is quite disappointing! I have been a subscriber since box 1. If you can not make this available to all your subscribers then it shouldn’t be available. This is very unfair to those of us who live across the world who have supported Crochet Society! What about us? This is bad business and poor customer appreciation! Wow, I am truly shocked and completely disappointed!

    So excited and ordered. I’ve only recently started crochet and was so excited to find a monthly subscription only to then find it was full :(. At least I can have the excitement of the advent calendar :). Now to decide where it’ll go being 4ft when open lol.

    Super disappointed that you’re not shipping to the US. I understand there’s been some difficulty, but we’re still getting our boxes (eventually), and I’ve ordered from Wool Warehouse with no problem.

    Signing up now, hope I can still get it

    If its 🇬🇧 only why is the price in dollars? Do we convert it for GBP?

    Very disappointed. This should also be available to all countries. I enjoy your boxes, perhaps for the pre Christmas season you could enclose for the Non UK customers some of the goodies you pack into your advent box into our regular as a compensation.

    September 6, 2020 at 9:25

    Like everyone else, I’m also disappointed. First we couldn’t get the second Stay at Home bundle, now this. Considering that a good number of your subscribers are out of the UK, I figured or at least hope that you guys can somehow compensate with something for us. And I get it: with the pandemic going on and making it difficult for overseas mailing, it’s still a little sad that we can’t get anything out of it.

  38. Charlena Parker Reply

    I am so sad to hear this is only available to UK subscribers. I was so excited when I heard about the box and was looking forward to ordering it. I have been subscribed since box 1 and absolutely love receiving my crochet society box every month. Hopefully if there are boxes left over I can get my hands on one. Even though I’m disappointed I still feel like it’s a great idea. Nice way to appeal the kid in all of us.

    I really wish we had some Thing like this in the USA. So upset that we can’t get this.

      Hi Geri,

      Really sorry we’re not able to ship the calendar to the USA. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do this next year 🙂

    I also agree with Denise on Sept 6th. Maybe you can offer something for those if us outside the UK that are regular subscribe

    I’ve ordered as a present to myself as he just rolled his eyes when I showed him

    Please can you advise what the fibre content of the yarn is in the advent calendar?

    I agree that it’s not right to offer this to UK only. I’m sure you receive business from all over the world and it should be offered to everyone. I feel this is poor judgement and just may hurt future sales.

    Oh my goodness! This is so exciting! I hope next year it can be offered outside the UK! I understand that the first year of an offering is often used to work out the kinks so I look forward to next year!
