I've been checking out fiber of the month clubs online today, especially on etsy, and I just just curious if you were a member of a fiber of the month club and if so which one?

i am am member of 2 FOTM...

One from spunky electric and one from zen string.  neither of them are on etsy..

zen string is a seasonal club..  that is your subscription is good for 3 months.  She has limited club slots avaliable each season, and is sold out for the winter.

spunky electric is a monthly club, and she just bills you each month on the day you initally signed up for the club.  Doesn't look like she has a limit on enrollment.

I LOVE getting new fiber every month... especially since the type of fiber and colorway is always a suprise!!

I second Spunky Eclectic. I love her stuff. I'm also looking into maybe a batt of the month club for some variety.

I'm a member of the Spunky Eclectic fiber club too (I get the double dose!).  I love Amy and her fibers and colors are wonderful.  I would heartily recommend her.

I am part of Traveling Rhino's Deluxe Fiber of the Month Club--http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=1641  It includes: 3+ ozs handcarded batts, 2+ ozs coordinated handpainted roving, and extra add-ins! each month. the super sundae size is the art yarn spinner's ideal pick-- more than enough fiber for one HUGE skein of funky yarn each month.  Totally awesome, but I don't think she is accepting anymore for the Deluxe, but her others ones are open.

Also HollyEQQ's Batt of the Month Club  http://hollyeqq.com/page8.html---sadly that one is closed for now too, but it ROCKS and I love it.

And I am in Funky Carolina's FOTM club---http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=76181

And a new one I just joined, still waiting for my first month is Artclub's Cucukoo for Cuckobatts Club---http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8540258

I would also LOVE to join Hobbledehoy's Batt Club, but I cannot justify anymore right now.  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8694986

OO good call for sure on this thread> I also have heard so much of the FOTM from Spunky I signed up on the 6th this month too. I can't wait. My friend also is a member of the Zen String and have seen a few of her selections and thought they were really nice too. I can't wait for the first instalment of Spunky though! Woot Cheesy

Steph (of Loop.etsy) just started her batt of the month club!!  Whoo hoo!!!   It's really cool cuz everyone gets an individual batt and you can give "insperations" about colors and fibers..

Steph's spontaneous batts are really fun to spin..   My "vegas baby" from last fiber friday (2/8) is from a spontaneous batt.  Always a party that's for  sure!!

Hurrah.. it's like a present every month!!

I saw that Loop had added a BotMC, that's cool except I'm leary of it because I can't get her to respond to my convos on etsy...I was making a special request for some batts and she hasn't responded :*( Yay she answered me, just miscommunication!

The club is tempting...Club or Drum Carder.....Grr I can't decide I want BOTH!

Steph is great.. don't worry about anything with her!!  Sometimes it takes a day or so for her to get back to me..  but never any problems.  We just started a Loop group on flickr to show off the yarns we've created with her batts.. so be sure to join once you've spun up her stuff!!  It's SOOO fantastic!!

Well.. the drum carder you can make your own batts..  but I know folks who have one, but still belong to fotm clubs...  it's fun to spin other people's stuff too...   as for which one..  that's a hard choice..   I'm pretty excited about these spontaneous batts.. they are SOO much fun!!
