sevenskeins

Just to let you know that sign-ups for membership of the Seven Skeins club open at noon (BST, current UK time) tomorrow, Friday September 18th in my shop.

The newsletter has now gone out, and subscribers will be receiving their 10% discount code shortly.

These things take a wee while to filter through the ether – please don’t worry if you don’t receive the newsletter immediately – it is on its way.

Other sales (of books and ribbons) will be temporarily suspended (while we deal with the club memberships), so if you would like to purchase anything else in the shop, please do so today, and we will ship orders out tomorrow.

Thankyou, everyone!

  1. Hi Kate, I had multiple bad gateway messages last Friday when I tried to order, and no success. I’m no longer able to access the order site so I guess you’re oversubscribed. Please let me know if a spot becomes available!

  2. Hi Kate – I finally was lucky to place my order last week, but never got a discount code or a newsletter confirmation When trying again signing in for the newsletter I got the statement that I had subscribed before…Did there any newsletter get out? I got the information by post…But i really enjoy your blog and all the information about your textile work. Cheerioh from Switzerland – Birgit

  3. Hi Kate, I had the bad gateway error when I was purchasing and have ended up ordering and being charged twice. I did email you at info@katedaviesdesigns.com on the same day but haven’t received a reply yet regarding a refund. Could you let me know please, thx so much.

  4. Dear Kate I was all set to join the club last Friday, but I never received a discount code so was being charged full price. I thought I received your newsletter – but maybe I don’t? I received all of the communications from you previously in my Gmail mailbox, so I’m now a bit confused. Please could you clarify for me?

  5. Didn’ even receive the mail to be a club member. So strange. A bit sad…

    Good luck with the new project. Hope to buy some of your Buachaille.

  7. I was actually surprised that I don’t subscribe to your newsletter (but I DO follow you on IG and twitter and WordPress). Discount or not, I got so excited about the club so I eventually subscribed anyway. Because the thought of getting yarn AND pattern AND a beautiful book seven times in the mail just thrilled me ! It’s like Xmas seven times before December! Thank you Katie. I’m looking forward to it!

  9. Hi Kate and friends,

    Wondering if the discount codes are out yet, I will be purchasing membership from the US. Thanks! Claudia ________________________________

  10. YEAH! The system finally cooperated. And the paypal amount is pending in my bank account. I also tried many times, so those of you who didn’t have success earlier, try again. All is well. Maybe too many of us were too eager and overwhelmed the system. Still eager–looking forward to receiving your most recent creative endeavor. Kate and Tom, you are gems. Thanks for all your hard work.

  11. Hello, I just purchased the club. I am so excited and very happy for your new venture! I forgot to put in my Ravelry name when ordering. Is there a way to do it after the fact? Thank you!

  12. Hi, Kate!

    Congrats to you and Tom and the whole team for this great new project. I’m sure it will be a success.

    My order has meanwhile been successful – so I’m fine now. It just occurred to me that I forgot to mention my Ravelry name when placing the order. Is there any chance I can still do it? Thanks.

    Sincerely,
    Michaela

  13. I too had problems paying — I placed the order at 4:03am PDT (3 min after starting time in Scotland), and it took till 4:30am to go through. During that time, I tried multiple times (fearing I’d be charged for multiple orders); but according to the receipt from PayPal I was charged only once. I think the problem/delay was server overload (perhaps too many people were trying to pay KDDesigns at once?). I also received an email confirmation from KDDesigns, so everything is good. Whew!

  14. Yay, just ordered my Seven Skeins! To everybody else: ordering is very easy – no problem at all if you just follow the instructions. To Kate (and Tom): Thank you for all your wonderful work! Really looking forward to the yarn, book and patterns.

    I had the same problem (502 bad gateway) first, but now it worked – and I’m happy! It just occurred to me that I forgot to mention my Ravelry name when ordering. Is there any chance I can still do that?

  17. Order went through fine but had a huge distraction due to stellar northern lights here! What a morning yarn from Kate and wonderful norther lights! Sounds like the making of a perfect day!

  18. I have come back and tried again but this time it left the paypal screen and went back to Kate’s order form. So either I have placed 3 orders or none! Is there any other advice? I will leave it again now and see what happens later.

  19. I, too, had bad gateways with PayPal & also while in the midst of filling out Kate’s order form. After 2 tries I canceled out, walked away & fed the cats. Back just now, and it worked (actually got a better exchange rate this time — what’s with that?!). I’ve only seen one confirmation screen from Kate, so I hope I only placed one order.

    Same experiences as above. Bad Gateway twice then got as far as paypal (although it didn’t accept the discount code and Bad Gatewayed again.

    1. Hi Kate, Tried again, and it went through to paypal but didn’t discount for the discount code. I have just been onto paypal and no record showing, so I don’t know if the payment has gone through.

    1. Hi Annabel, we did try to think this through carefully – we need enough working hours to be here to be awake and able to respond to queries / issues, but didn’t want to open things so early as to disadvantage those on the far side of the US. The middle of our day seemed a good compromise, and we are sure we will have enough stock for you to be able to purchase a membership at a reasonable hour.

  25. Kate, I live in Minnesota, central standard time, and it is 10:10pm.  You are 6 hours ahead of CST so it is 4:10am there.  I hope you are sleeping soundly but maybe not so much with all the excitement of the Seven Skeins club membership sign-ups later in the day for you. I am writing to inform you that I never received my 10% discount code.  You said it could take a while so maybe I will still receive it by tomorrow (CST) before the 6:00 am sign-up for me in Minnesota. Thanks, Michelle

  26. For health reasons, I cannot be awake at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. I am dying to buy this membership as a gift for a friend but am concerned that if I log in two or three hours after the sale begins you’ll be sold out. Do you have any way to anticipate demand and how long the club will be available?
