Like Surprises? There's a Club For That!
At Created by Elsie B, one of our favorite things ever is spreading beauty and color in our customer's lives. While creating unique colorways regularly rocks our world, seeing what appeals to you and what you make with our hand-dyed combed top fiber is probably the most fulfilling part of what we do. And, we are certainly surprised in the best way as we browse the things that our customers share on Instagram and Facebook.
Still, why should we have all the fun? We like to give surprises as well! If you consistently love the style and showmanship of Elsie B fibers and enjoy surprises, you should definitely check out our fiber club! (P.S. Carnival, the beauty right up there, was received by all our June 2019 fiber club members!)
What Is Fiber Club?
The Created by Elsie B fiber club provides our customers with the opportunity to receive an exclusive, one-of-a-kind surprise colorway every month. We offer two fiber club options - you can either select the 100% wool fiber club for $24 or the luxury fiber club for $28. (Though there's nothing stopping you from ordering both!) Regardless of which fiber club you join, the same colorway will be applied to both bases for any given month. If you're a spinner or artist that generally prefers to work with more than one braid, you can purchase 2 or more subscriptions for even more fiber-loving fun. While our small-bath manufacturing process requires us limit the amount of fiber club subscriptions, there is no particular cap on the number of exclusive braids we produce.
How It Works
The Elsie B fiber club can be purchased through the 25th of every month for delivery in the subsequent month. (For example, orders placed now through September 25 will be receiving October fiber club.) If you purchase a recurring subscription, you will be charged on the 20th of the month. Fiber club can be manually added to your cart each month or whenever it strikes your fancy, or you can select a recurring term of either 3, 6 or 12 months to be billed as a one-time charge or on a monthly basis, so there are plenty of options. (If you're giving our fiber club as a gift, prepaying for a specific term makes gifting fiber easy as pie!)
Purchasing after the 25th means that your fiber club order gets bumped to the next month. (An order on September 26th or later, for example, will be delivered as part of the November fiber club.)
Though the specific fiber bases vary from month to month, the options that we pull from remain consistent depending of whether you select the 100% wool or luxury subscription. For those who choose 100% wool, you can expect to receive Rambouillet, Targhee, Merino, Polwarth, BFL, Falkland or Alpaca. The luxury fiber club may include blends such as Alpaca/silk, Merino/Tencel, Merino/Bamboo, Polwarth/Tencel, Polwarth/Silk, Merino/Stellina or any other luxury fiber blend. One fiber club subscription buys one 4-ounce braid.
Things to Note
While fiber club is always a surprise, we want it to be the best experience possible so that you want to play along again! There are a few things to keep in mind when you join the Created by Elsie B fiber club.
- Because our fiber club subscriptions are already discounted, coupon codes cannot be applied to a fiber club order. Orders that attempt to combine club subscriptions with a coupon will be refunded and cancelled.
- If you purchase other braids along with your fiber club, we will hold those items until the monthly club order is ready to ship. To avoid this, place regular orders separately from fiber club subscriptions.
- All fiber club braids are OOAK! They will be colorways that you have never seen before in the Elsie B shop and will never see again. We cannot guarantee that they can be recreated exactly even if you place a custom order.
- Created by Elsie B fiber club colorways don't really follow any seasonal pattern or color scheme. They are the purest expression of whatever is inspiring LeAndra at any given moment. You are just as likely to receive a beach vibe braid in February as you are in July which (we think) is half the fun!
- If you have any allergies and cannot receive a specific fiber blend, please let us know in the "Note to Seller" section of your order.
- The actual shipment date of the fiber club varies depending on our production schedule, but you can expect your braids to ship by the end of the month following the date you were charged.
While we don't always remember to photograph and post each month's offering (oops!), past fiber club colorways can be seen on both Facebook and Instagram under #elsiebfiberclub so check that out if you want a sneak peek of what you can expect. We'd love to see your name on our October shipment and have you join the fiber club fun!
Have you ever ordered the Created by Elsie B fiber club? What has been your favorite exclusive colorway, or what would you like to see in the future?
I love being a member of the fiber club! I have a subscription for two braids and love being surprised each month.
