Soap Crafting Club is here!

I think that one of best parts of soapmaking is the amazing community we’re surrounded with — it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to meet other soapers, learn new techniques, exchange ideas, and receive encouragement and feedback to help our community learn and grow.

After meeting so many amazing soapers at the Soap Crafting release event last Thursday, I began thinking of ways to bring people together around the Soap Crafting book, and I hope you’ll all be delighted with what the team and I came up with: I am pleased to announce the Soap Crafting Club, a collaborative subscription-based group featuring techniques and recipes from the Soap Crafting book. Read on to find out more and get in on the fun!

The Neon Swirl is part of the fall Soap Crafting Club session

Think of the club as a private, online classroom. When you sign up, you’ll get access to instructional videos for each recipe, be able to ask questions on a private forum and have a space to share your own soapy creations. When you purchase a subscription, you’ll receive pre-measured oils, lye colorant, fragrance and the soap mold. All you need to provide is the distilled water and the tools! The club is a great way for soapers to focus on technique because all ingredients are pre-measured, allowing lots of time for focus on technique and execution.

In the private Soap Crafting Club forum, I will be answering questions and giving feedback on the soaps. I want to give each soaper individualized attention. As a result, the number of members will be limited!  If a session fills up, have no fear — we’re offering four, unique 3-month-long sessions throughout this year, as well as a subscription for the entire year. Every session features three different recipes from the book, and you can see the complete schedule below:

    Just signed up for the fall, and plan to sign up for others as well! (Don’t know if I will be able to sign up for the whole year yet) What a fantastic idea! I love the thought of being able to ask what happened or how to do something right away, rather than checking through blogs and youtube videos to see if it’s been covered in the past. Also happy that this is starting in the fall – maybe my current weather conditions of 97 degrees and 93 percent humidity will have changed by then and soap will like me again!

    Can anyone join the club? I have all the materials and molds already – can I join without repurchasing it all?
    Thank you!!

    Also, I noticed that after the first three September blogs, none of the SQ blogs are being archived. I love being able to go back and read blogs such as this… Have you stopped doing this, or is it just a temporary glitch?

      Good morning, Sly!

      As long as you are located within the lower 48 US states, the Soap Crafting Club subscription is open to you. Unfortunately, we cannot open it to other countries at this time (due to the lye and low flashpoint fragrances included in the subscription), but we hope to have something in the near future for our international customers.

      Currently, we are not having any changes in the Soap Crafting Club Subscription and the classes as well as all of the ingredients are included in the price. If you already have the ingredients, you can either keep the extra or share or sell with soapers in your area! We hope you get a chance to join the club and can’t wait to see your soaps. =)

      We aren’t noticing anything glitchy on the blog, but I will contact our IT team to see if they notice anything. In the meantime, I would suggest clearing the cache on your browser and restarting it to see if that helps! =)

      Happy Soaping!

      Hi Cheryl!

      If you have signed up for the Soap Crafting Club you should have received an e-mail with instructions on how to get into the classroom. I would check your junk and spam mail folders to make sure it did not get sent there! Let us know if you have any other questions. =)

    I signed up last week and am very excited about the club. I made the Pumpkin recipe but did not use the colors in the recipe. It turned out a dark orange and smells WONDERFUL. That was 3 weeks ago and my whole house still smells like Pumpkin Bread.

    Okay Anne Marie, you are starting to upset me. I cannot afford a another addiction and her you are dangling this club in front of my face. I am going to need to join a support group but I will start until after I finish the club. ;) Seriously, I LOVE your website!!!

    Very cool! For the Summer 2014 session I see “9 bar Birchwood Mold with silicone liner” listed. I wasn’t aware the 9 bar had a silicone liner and I can’t find it on the website. Is this liner only available in this kit for the class? If not I’d love to buy it on the Bramble Berry website!

    Thanks!
    -M
