Hi Everyone, if you are reading this, thanks so much for being a subscriber and thank you for your continued patience with the delays we have been experiencing.
We have some news about your May box. We’ve had to make some changes to the planned delivery dates, which means there will be something new and exciting on its way to you this month!
Your New May Box!
You might notice that this month’s box is a bit different! The Floral May box was running late because of COVID-19, we had expected it to be less impacted but unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case despite all of our efforts to get it here sooner. So, this new bumper box has become your May delivery instead. It’s all about staying home and staying crafty!
8 BALLS OF YARN!
You will love this new bumper box! Usually, your box includes 2 balls of yarn, this month you’re getting 8 BALLS OF YARN – enough to make a really beautiful blanket, a stunning set of cushions or a gorgeous garment.
I know this might not be the box you were expecting, but lots of you have been asking for bigger projects so I seized this one-off opportunity to give you just that.
What about the Floral Box?
The lovely Floral box will now become your June Box (so don’t worry it is on the way still, we just didn’t want you to have to wait a whole month with no new box!). The June Box will become the July Box and so on! Rest assured you will be receiving the number of boxes you have paid for.
What’s in the Box?
Putting this parcel together has been a fantastic example of kindness in our community. A popular yarn company have supplied us with some super-soft, squishable yarn (8 balls of it each) and some more of our craft industry friends have made the box and the goodies inside in record time for us.
When will I get my box?
It is expected to be in our warehouse in approximately 10 days time and on the way to you shortly after that once we have packed all those balls of yarn and goodies in the boxes!
Make sure you’ve joined our Crochet Society Facebook group and stay in touch. We’re all here for each other and we hope this exciting new May box gives you masses of yarn and inspiration to keep you busy!
