Sweater Club Details
Each Sweater Club offering is unique, but there are a few things that remain the same. Please read carefully below.
A little introduction.
My design inspiration comes directly from the fabric created when using a specific yarn and stitch pattern; and I have to admit it’s my favorite thing when I see knitters using the suggested yarn. I know they're experiencing a project exactly how I intended it, and I can share in their joy of knitting, wearing, and cherishing it. This is what motivated me to begin a Sweater Club—to facilitate that perfect marriage of timeless pattern and meticulously selected yarn.
While there are many yarn clubs and sweater clubs out there, mine is a little different. First, it is an exclusive offer, only sweater club members will have access to the patterns for a twelve month timeframe. And second, you’ll know what you’re getting before the kit arrives.
I hope you join in and enjoy each one with me!
What you get.
Each kit contains two limited edition printed sweater patterns (one cardigan + one pullover) designed by Julie Hoover and features a specific yarn in the quantity needed for your size in the design of your choice. You get both patterns and yarn for one of the designs, but you can also order yarn for the second design, if you wish.
How to register.
Each Sweater Club registration will appear in the SHOP at the exact time announced.
The fee is $30 to register and lock in your spot.
Space is limited to the first 150 people to register (this number is subject to change each time a Sweater Club is released).
How to order your kit.
Upon completing registration, you will receive an email with a password protected link to the Sweater Club shopping page containing full details about each pattern. Select the size and yarn color of the design of your choice and complete your yarn purchase. You will only be charged for the yarn required for your selected size. The patterns will ship together with the yarn within 3-4 weeks after registration closes.
Still have questions?
If I register for Sweater Club once, am I automatically registered for the next one?
No, each Sweater Club will have its own separate registration. You are not required to participate each time.
If Sweater Club sells out before registration closes, can I get on waiting list?
Yes, and many spots do open up, so it's worth getting on the list.
Is the registration fee deducted from the cost of the yarn?
The registration fee is not deducted from the yarn purchase; it is simply the cost of the entire kit, minus the yarn. The two are separated in order to allow for each member to customize their yarn order in the size (determines quantity) and color of their chosen design to complete their kit.
How long do I have after registering to order my yarn?
You may order your yarn any time up to 1 week after registration closes. If special circumstances arise that make it necessary for you to delay your order, you may contact me to make other arrangements (I will do my best to accommodate you).
What if I want to purchase yarn for both patterns?
Great, you can do that! Simply order the size and color for both designs, there is no need to register twice.
Are the patterns printed or digital?
The patterns are printed (only) on high quality matte paper (110lb. stock) and packaged together in a branded keepsake folder to keep them protected.
Will the patterns be available elsewhere?
The patterns are an exclusive offer to Sweater Club members. In addition to ordering from Julie, there may be a trunk show that will travel to a handful of her stockists. Each shop that hosts the trunk show will have a limited number of Sweater Club kits available for their customers. (Locations and schedule will be announced under EVENTS.)
Can you ship internationally?
Yes. A $32 shipping charge will be added to your order. This is a nominal rate, as packages going from the US to many countries worldwide runs closer to $50-$60. International knitters can also consider participating in this service (or one like it). Be aware that there may be additional duties/taxes owed once the package arrives, so consider those costs carefully before joining.
How long before I get my kit?
Kits will ship approximately 3-4 weeks after registration closing dates.
What is your return policy?
A full refund can be issued if requested before registration closes. No refunds or modifications to your order after registration closes, but items damaged in shipment will be replaced at no additional cost. Damage must be reported within 48 hours of your order being delivered.
How can we share our projects with everyone?
The patterns will be added to the Ravelry database so you can share your WIP and finished projects with your friends. If you're an Instagram or Twitter user, don't forget to post with the hashtag #juliehooversweaterclub so we can follow your posts.
