Travel the Whedonverse with Mad Geek Tour

You’re gonna come with us. – Kaylee, Firefly, Episode 1, Serenity

Time to book your passage once again on the Mad Geek Tour as we travel to the far reaches of the Whedonverse in our “Joss is Boss” round. We will visit three as yet undisclosed “destinations” with colors inspired by the many worlds created by Joss Whedon*, rounded out, of course, with a fabulous themed bag from Stitched by JessaLu in which to keep your souvenirs.  Be sure to grab your spot before bay doors close on April 18th!

Veteran Tour-ists will note a change in the way club rounds are listed. Each round now has it’s own separate listing, and will remain open until the posted date or until the round has sold out, whichever occurs first. It is my hope this will simplify the process for everyone.

Since we know travel is always more fun when we’ve got good friends along, Mad Color would like to extend the chance to earn 10% off a future Geek Tour round of your choice when you refer a friend to the club. Just have your friend mention in the notes at check-out that it was YOU who set them on their journey, and we’ll send you a personalized coupon code to use on your next membership round.

* Please note – due to Mad Color’s ongoing partnership resulting in the Dizzy Color Sunnydale Yarn club, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel will not be represented in this round.

Mad Color Posse declares the Year of the B.A.M.F. (Badass Magnificent Females)!

Mad Color Fiber Arts is declaring 2016 as the Year of the B.A.M.F! (Be sure to read through to the end to see how YOU can win 3 months of Mad Color Posse!)

posse muppeets2

This year, rather than, visiting multiple themes, Mad Color Posse* will honor one super strong and amazingly badass woman from pop-culture each month. With outstanding characters like Carol, Michonne, and Maggie from the Walking Dead, the fabulous women of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Rey from Star Wars: the Force Awakens, Jessica Jones (all just a few of my recent favorites), and so many many more, the hardest part will be narrowing the field down to only twelve!

To celebrate this noble mission, Mad Color is giving you the chance to win 3 months of the Posse FREE. To be eligible for the drawing, share this post via Facebook or Twitter and then head to the Mad Color Facebook page and post a copy of the link in the comments (here) by January 31st. Drawing will be held on February 1st. Be sure to also leave me the name of your favorite B.A.M.F.! (If the winner is already a Posse member, their account will be “suspended” for their next 3 scheduled payments; refunds will not be issued for months already paid.)

*Mad Color Posse is a monthly subscription yarn and fiber club. To join in on the fun, subscribe in the shop under the Club category by the 20th of the month in which you wish to begin your subscription (a Paypal account is required for the subscription). Payments made after the 20th of the month will apply to the following month’s shipment. You can cancel at anytime through your Paypal account – the control is yours.
