SIGN UPS HAVE CLOSED!

 

As much as I love a riot, rules are needed to keep us in check and that's the same with Tits Out Collective, Countess Ablaze's response to a plagiarism of a popular charity colourway.

swiped from the home page!

I have invited fellow indie dyers to get on board to dye their own versions of 'If I Want Exposure, I'll Get My Tits Out'. Knitting and crochet designers, plus notions designers, have also asked to get involved.

 

DYERS:

  1.  Fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
  2. Your colourway is called "If I Want Exposure, I'll Get My Tits Out (Name Of Your Version)"
  3. £3 per skein minimum (or your currency equiv) is to be donated to a charity of your choice. Tell me who they are. If you won't do this, you are not to get involved. This payment must be made to your charities by August 1st 2018.
  4. All versions launch together on your own selling platforms on July 1st. We market this together. I've already had people excitedly tell me they're treating this like Pokemon Go and want to grab as many skeins from different dyers as they can. Imagine the Titty Fades... ;) 
  5. Feel free to post previews on social media using #titsoutcollective in the run up to July 1st.

 

DYERS TO NOTE:

  • I'm looking for your colourways to be reminiscent of the original but dyed in YOUR style. So if you're a fan of semi-solids, speckles, pastels, self-striping, whatever - YOU DO YOU! Wanna chuck in more or less colours? Go for it.
  • Wanna know what I used on the original? Berry Crush, Purple Pop, Electric Violet, Neon Yellow, Neon Fushia (all from Dharma Trading) and a whole lot of mixing so the colours aren't as pure as they come from the straight-up dyes. You use whatever dye you're familiar with.
  • We have so far got 150 dyers on board from all over the world (yuh huh - I'm gonna need a bigger spreadsheet!) and we have got dyers with big shops and wholesale accounts right the way through to brand new, ready to launch indie dyers. NO DYER is prohibited from joining in. You dye as much as you can handle. Even one skein is bloody brilliant and this isn't a competition.
  • You choose your yarn bases. You could even do fibre.
  • It's up to you if you want to have ready to ship skeins or open up to pre-orders. You work how you like to work, just don't overstretch yourself!

 

 

PATTERN DESIGNERS:

  1. Fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
  2. Your pattern is closely related to the issue and involves the name If I Want Exposure, I'll Get My Tits Out somehow. This does NOT need to be a brand new pattern that you have just released, you are open to relaunch a pattern that you feel would benefit from being made up in Tits from different dyers.
  3. 20% minimum per pattern sold is to be donated to a charity of your choice. Tell me who they are. If you won't do this, you are not to get involved. This payment must be made to your charities by August 1st 2018.
  4. All patterns launch together on your own selling platforms on July 1st. We market this together. I've already had people excitedly tell me they're treating this like Pokemon Go and want to grab as many skeins from different dyers as they can. Imagine the Titty Fades... ;) Think of what you can do with this!
  5. Feel free to post previews on social media using #titsoutcollective in the run up to July 1st.

 

NOTIONS (i.e. bags, stitch markers...):

  1. Fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
  2. Your item is closely related to the issue so I'm wanting to see the slogan or something more clever like Blue Tit fabric. Be creative! Also Tits Out Collective. 
  3. 20% minimum per item sold is to be donated to a charity of your choice. Tell me who they are. If you won't do this, you are not to get involved. This payment must be made to your charities by August 1st 2018.
  4. All items launch together on your own selling platforms on July 1st. We market this together. I've already had people excitedly tell me they're treating this like Pokemon Go and want to grab as many skeins from different dyers as they can and they need swag to put those skeins in.
  5. Feel free to post previews on social media using #titsoutcollective in the run up to July 1st.

 

ON AUGUST 1ST 2018:

I want like to know how much you've raised for charity so that we can announce one big collective number. If you're not selling in £ sterling, if you could cut down time for me and run your currency through xe.com for me, that would be appreciated!

OTHER BORING STUFF:

I'm not mercenary given that this is for charity but it would be a nice courtesy if you could acknowledge Countess Ablaze when referring to your colourway.

I hereby relinquish the phrase "If I Want Exposure, I'll Get My Tits Out" into the world for you to use ON THE CONDITION that it is used for good and I, Countess Ablaze, am acknowledged as the original angry owner of it. You should know by now that my wrath involves out of the box, stomping in big boots, thinking.

 

~ Countess
