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!

❦ Limited Edition POP Thru the Parks Yarn Bowl Pre-Orders Open 12/8 ❦

That Clever Clementine’s POP Thru The Parks collection has been designed to tie in with IndieUntangled’s National Parks Project, which has offered four special colorways in 2017, each by a different indie dyer.

This item will be available for pre-order for two weeks, or until the limited edition of 24 pieces is sold out, whichever comes first. (Please note: previous releases have sold out in as little as 1.5 hours.) All items in the collection feature delightful fabric from Amy Peppler Adams’s “Soda Nation” Collection; the December bowls have pumpkin-ish lining with wee yellow dots.

This is the final item in this collection. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and will check back in 2018 for more limited edition fun!

ITEM #4:
Here’s one of my POPular yarn bowls, released to coincide with DuckDuckWool’s eye-popping Glaciers & Wildflowers colorway. These foldable, unbreakable yarn bowls offer a safe place for your yarn as well as a cozy repository for your knitting when you set it aside.

Go ahead, curl up on the couch with your knitting — you can put this soft bowl anywhere, without worrying about it breaking. When the dog jumps up and your bowl goes rollin’ … phew … no broken crockery to cry over! (Plus, customers tell me they use these bowls to keep all manner of household items tidy, from rolled up hand towels to remote controls, from last night’s jewelry and pocket change to dinner rolls.)

• This Limited Edition item is $32, plus $4 s/h (Sorry, US only.)
• Pre-orders open at 9:00 a.m. EDT, December 8, at ThatCleverClementine.com.
• Order period closes when 24 bags sell out, no later than midnight EDT December 22, 2017.
• Orders will ship on or before January 26, 2018.

• Bowl is about 7″ tall at full extension; you can roll it up or down as desired. It is also about 7″ in diameter.
• As with all handsewn items, please expect some minor variations. In particular, print placement will vary, so you will not get the exact assortment of pop caps you see here.
• All items are made by me, in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

All The Shiny Things Your Mama Warned You About


My grandmother taught me to embroider and crochet when I was 10. This is not a unique story in the fiber community but one of my favorite parts that so many have this story. Through the years, I’ve flirted with crochet and embroidered myself into many happy places. My grandmother’s lessons were the foundation to me becoming an artist/designer.

Fast forward years 30 years and inspired by my mother’s knitting and fiber obsession, I create jewelry to adorn handmade fiber arts garments. I design shawl pins and buttons using the 5,000-year-old lost wax casting process. Each piece is either hand carved out of wax or 3D printed in wax, cast in sterling silver or bronze and hand finished by the artist in Los Angeles.

I would love share my jewels with you! Visit my online store, Porterness Studio, with this 20% off discount code: Indie20

Carrying on with family tradition I too live with a fiber and knitting addiction and do not want to be cured.

Take care,

Shop Update and Small Business Saturday

I recently attended my first ever fiber festival — The East Texas Fiber Festival. And while it was a small event, I received fantastic feedback on my yarn and art, enough in fact to keep me motivated to keep it up. I’ve returned from the event with a new vigor for dyeing and creating and am ready to share all of my products with the world!

My shop has been updated with all of my remaining yarns — including a new SW Merino Worsted and a new colorway, Howling Black Bark, all dyed to match my original oil paintings of the same names. I have also added with art prints, notebooks, stitch markers, and my exclusive “knitted shoes.” More items will be added this week, just in time for my Small Business Saturday Sale! Starting Saturday, November 25 and running through midnight Central time on Tuesday, November 27, you can receive 20% off with code SBSSALE AND you will receive a FREE watercolor greeting card of my choice in your package. It’s my way of saying thank you to everyone who has made my business a success up to this point.
