Updates from FiberCrafty Shops!

Do you go in search of that PERFECT hand dyed yarn or are you looking for luscious new fiber? Whatever your mission, the FiberCrafty shops have been busy with new listings that include plenty of both, not to mention other goodies you will love!

Here are the latest updates, pictured above:

The Spun Bunny has just added some beautiful new sock blanks, rolags and yarn.

GreenHeronHandmade, one of our newer shops, specializes in gorgeous handspun yarn. Also listed are handmade yarn bowls that can be custom glazed.

The Girl Who Crafted has gorgeous fandom yarns.

Duchess Fiber Arts has a shop with many yarns that coordinate beautifully together (and fiber, too!).

If you are all about spinning, ShariArts specializes in stunning fiber.

Split Rock Ranch has a huge variety of custom blend combed top, not to mention unique types of fiber like Pearl Infused Rose fiber! There is also a new fiber prep tutorial on the FiberCrafty YouTube channel. It features a trick new to me and from what I have heard, new to many others also!

In addition to what’s pictured above, PussNBoots Hand Dyed Yarn has been quite busy with updates and has lots of choices with beautiful variegated and tonal yarns, and Wild Hair Studio has just listed a selection of Tour de Fleece boxes available for pre-order.

These updates aren’t all that’s new on FiberCrafty, so have fun exploring. If you want to hear about sales and coupon codes, let us know here.

Sea Creature Update on KnitSpinQuilt

This month’s update is all about sea creatures: Sea turtle stitch markers and manatee bags.

These bags usually sell out fast, so click through if you like mustard, teal, or coral, and get one for your very own project-safekeeping! 30% of the purchase price will be donated to the Hispanic Federation’s ongoing Puerto Rico disaster relief efforts, which are still sorely needed.

Keep an eye out for more news soon: KnitSpinQuilt will be in New York City at the Moms and Makers Market organized by Knitty City on May 12, and box bags are in development.

FiberCrafty is like a 24-hour fiber festival!

You can think of FiberCrafty as an online mall filled with indie owned shops ready to supply the fiber community. You will find yarn, fiber, project bags, stitch markers and more. FiberCrafty has all the features you expect like filters with terms specific to yarn and fiber, the ability to save favorite items and shops, a secure checkout process and even a cart jacking prevention system. Shop owners will find an easy to use interface that makes selling online easy.

FiberCrafty is proud to connect indie businesses and fiber enthusiasts and is owned by one woman that has a crazy love of yarn and knitting. It was made for fiber people by fiber people. Find your next project at fibercrafty.com.

Pictured are examples of items available from the following FiberCrafty shops: The Spun Bunny, The Girl Who Crafted, Psykhe Charms, Cords & Cobwebs, ShariArts and Redhead Fibers.

They’re Baaaack! Pattern & Chart Keepers!

We are so excited to announce that we will have our coveted pattern and chart wallets available starting this week! Check back often as we will be adding more soon!

What is a pattern and chart wallet, you ask?

Are you tired of getting your pattern crumpled up in the bottom of your bag? How about having to write all over it AND risk lose your place every time you take a break? Even trying to knit or crochet and read the pattern as it lays flat on the table is a pain. The Slipped Stitch Studios miPattern Wallet is the perfect solution to your pattern problems. The intuitive features of this wallet make it a must have for any serious pattern user.

The miPattern Wallet has a sturdy, fold-over design with an anti-glare vinyl page protector on one side and a unique and fun pattern on the other. A pattern printed on a standard 8.5″x11″ sheet of paper easily slides into the page pocket so you can see the pattern through the vinyl. Fold the wallet closed and snap it shut to take it on the go or fold it the other way and snap it open so it stands up allowing you to read the pattern while you knit.

The single fold design means you only need to turn the wallet once as you knit and the easel extender design means that no matter which side of the pattern you’re working from the miPattern Wallet is always in the right position. The way we designed this wallet allows you to keep more than one pattern stashed inside and at the ready.

KnitSpinQuilt: Crafting for Charity in Brooklyn, NY

I’m a graduate student on a limited budget, but I want to donate to charitable causes I support. So I started KnitSpinQuilt in 2015! I make project bags and stitch markers, and I donate 30% of the purchase prices to charitable causes I support. Proceeds from the shop are donated every three months (end of March, June, September, December).

In 2015, the first year I did this, I donated to the Johns Hopkins CTY Scholars fund. In 2016, I chose the Flint Child Health Development Fund (which worked to help families in Flint, MI, handle lead poisoning due to their water situation). In 2017, I split the fundraiser between Doctors without Borders, the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, and the Hispanic Federation’s Puerto Rico disaster relief efforts.

In 2018 I am continuing to donate to the Hispanic Federation‘s Puerto Rico disaster relief efforts, because 40% of the population there still lacks electricity.

I make drawstring project bags and notions bags using a variety of geeky and non-geeky fabrics, and also make dainty stitch markers that won’t catch on your knitting. I’m always open to custom requests — see a fabric in one size of bag that you think would work well for another size of bag? Just ask!

One of my goals with KnitSpinQuilt is to provide quality notions to the crafting community while also giving back to the wider world community at large. If I can sell you a project bag, or stitch markers, then I can afford to donate to a charitable cause, and help someone else, and that’s my purpose. I may not have a large income — being a graduate student in New York City pretty much guarantees I’m strapped for cash — but I can donate my time and skills, and use that to make a difference somewhere in the world if you help me out by choosing to shop with me.

Won’t you be my neighbor?

We are so excited to announce the next three Bag of the Months are inspired by the Inspired! Did you ever think how lucky most of us were to grow up with such creative, inspirational leaders as Fred Rogers, LeVar Burton, and Bob Ross… just to name a few?!

I am so very excited to announce that the next three Bag of the Months will be inspired by these greats. I have partnered up with some of my favorite indie yarn dyers to complement each bag, and we have even brought back the “Make it a Club” listing for a very special surprise to be included for those that wish to participate.

Mr. Rogers bags and supplies will be paired up with Anzula luxury fibers!

I hope these bags and supplies will add some much needed positivity to your life, and that the quotes we pick will delight you and remind you of our ultimate purposes in this life: to learn how to love ourselves, love others, and create a beautiful legacy that will survive long past our mortal lives. Each one of us holds such a unique piece of this life puzzle, never forget that!


So many indie dyers. One email.
