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.

Spring in your Step!!

Stripe sock yarn… inspiration for my stripes is thinking about spring coming and thinking about it not getting here fast enough. As I am writing this there is a Noreaster storm hitting us and leaving us with a foot of snow! I am dreamimg of spring and the beautiful colors it brings us. As winter is winding down it is great to think about all the things spring brings. The Daffodills, Tulips, and Hyacinth will soon be coming up and everyone will be ready to get back out side in the fresh air.

I have been dyeing all kinds of fabulous fibers this winter and producing some new colors for customized Fades for customers. Also started making stripe Sock with the help from my math guru Husband. So much fun with color. Wish I could knit faster to create more colorful FOs!

Since I only sell at shows and to LYS you will only see all of my colorways and fibers at those locations. Check out my show & LYS locations on my website under the news and events page. If you own a shop and would like access contact me and I will provide you with a access code.

Show to start off the Fiber Season: Chancellor’s Sheep and Wool Showcase in Clermont, N.Y., on April 21st.

Blue skies, warm sunshine and birds singing…. I hope everyone had a wonderful winter and now…. On to spring!!!

Introducing Whole Knit ‘n Caboodle

Hello Indie Untangled Fiber Gurus! I’m Terri from Whole Knit ‘n Caboodle Yarns from Albany, N.Y. (it’s about an hour north of Rhinebeck). I’m from a family of crafters: sewing, painting, woodworking — anything craft related I’ve done it.

After getting back into knitting about 15 years ago and learning so many new techniques from my sister — some may know her as Mary, owner of the LYS Perfect Blend Yarn and Tea in Saugerties, N.Y. — I started dyeing yarn a few years ago and the world hasn’t been the same for me since. My yarn is mostly available through yarn shops and I do a few shows throughout the area. As of right now I have about 10 bases of yarn that I dye, from alpaca to Merino with bamboo.

There is no question that fiber people are the best inspiration to other fiber artists. I have been having the best time collaborating with people from custom colors for Fades to online yarn boxes. The fiber world is filled with fascinating people with so much inspiration. I hope I can inspire some of you to create some wonderful projects too!

Spring is Coming

It doesn’t quite feel like spring yet, but we know it is coming and we’re obsessing over the gorgeous colors that come with it!

The shop is full of springy beauties, and three fun Valentines Day collaborations with charm maker Little Bitty Delights. The sets are inspired by three famous couples because we love love. There’s Lucy and Ethel from “I love Lucy” (BFF love is important too — Happy Galentine’s Day!), Harry Burns and Sally Albright from “When Harry Met Sally,” and Wesley and Buttercup from “The Princess Bride.”

Celebrate the upcoming change in seasons with us! By the time you’ve finished whatever you’re casting on right now, spring should be just around the corner!

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.


So many indie dyers. One email.
