And now what you really want to hear... the details of the new Mezzaluna Club.

The Mezzaluna Club will explore all aspects of the crescent shawlette, including shawls worked from the top down, the bottom up, and just about everything in between.  

In this club, you will receive six exclusive crescent-shaped shawl 
designs, along with premium yarns from top yarn dyers in exclusive colorways and beautiful Japanese beads to compliment the designs.

Each shipment of the club is meant to make your heart flutter, or cause you to break out in a chorus of "That's Amoré!" I love beautiful things and I know you do too. 

The first shipment will go out August 25, 2012, and will proceed to you on an every-other-month basis. Your last shipment will be in June, 2013. Imagine a year full of lace and beads. It's enough to put you over the moon! 

The fee for membership in the Mezzaluna Club is due within 5 days of signup. Payment can be made through our shopping cart or by check. Please contact us at siviaclub AT gmail DOT com if you need to pay by check so we can hold your spot in the club while your check is in the mail. The check payment option is for US knitters only, sorry. Membership is limited and registration will close once the maximum level is achieved so please register early and get your payment in quickly. If your payment is complete before July 1, 2012, you will receive a bonus pattern in the final shipment, bringing the number to a total of seven patterns for the club. All patterns are digital PDF downloads and are delivered straight to your Ravelry library.

For the Mezzaluna Club kit option, you will receive six exclusive Sivia Harding designs with exclusive colorway yarns and beads, along with access to the Ravelry group and pattern support from Sivia. You receive the same pattern support and access to the group if you choose the pattern-only option. There will also be a group KAL for each pattern.  

Pricing will be as follows: For US and Canadian full club shipments, $294. For international full club shipments, $325. For pattern-only option, $45.

If you have any questions, please address them to: siviaclub AT gmail DOT com. I can’t wait to begin sharing my designs with you!!

On the Eve of Mezzaluna...

It is a momentous day here! The start of my first subscription club ever!

Watch for full details in the next day or so.

I am so excited. Plans are still being formed and dyers are being spoken to. Things are all abuzz here at Sivia Harding Knit Design.

Keep yourself abreast of the new developments by doing one of the following:

1. Add yourself to my mailing list. To do this, go to my website contact page and select "request to be added to mailing list" from the pulldown menu of subjects. If you want to use a different email address than the one you are mailing from, then put that in the body of the letter. Send!

2. Join my Ravelry group (Sivia Harding, under my name). My wonderful moderators and I will happily keep you up-to-speed.

3. Friend me on FaceBook. While this won't be as thorough information as the other two, it will give you the basics.

If you are wondering about the name of the club, Mezzaluna means "crescent moon" in Italian according to Babelfish. At least that is one translation. My dear husband who has spoken Italian from birth says it means more like "half moon". I think either interpretation will work actually.

My idea was to have a club that explores all aspects of the crescent shawlette. And from all directions. That means sideways, top and bottom, and hmm, well maybe some others too. Hehe.

The lineup of glorious yarn dyers who are going to be working with us is simply stunning. When it is time to reveal the full lineup, wow, just be sure you are sitting down.

Enough tantalizing details... now I must get back to planning! Wha-hooo!! We are going to have a really fun club!!
