Celebrating the First Anniversary of my New Re-branded Website!

I’m celebrating the one-year anniversary of my rebrand and new website with a discount for everyone who’s helped make this year a success… and a free gift! Use code CELEBRATE for 10% off and a little extra treat through October 6th.

While Crafty Flutterby Creations has only been around for a year, I’ve been handcrafting a stunning and varied selection of shawl pins for over five years this April. The growth metamorphosis from Michelle’s Assortment to Crafty Flutterby Creations has been fabulous! I could not have done it without the continued support and friendship of this community! Join me for a trip down memory lane in the most recent blog post on my website.

To further celebrate I’ve added a new collection of Fantasy Creature Shawl Pins! Dragon scales in a variety of colors and a mermaid are the newest additions! Classic phoenix, dragon, and owl round out the collection.

Autumn Equinox Collection

I’ve updated my shop with a collection of pins perfect for keeping your shawls in place while on a fall evening! These handcrafted shawl pins are ready to shine like the moon on your autumn outfits. Tree of life and leaf charmed pins show your love of the season loud and proud. The newest golden pins sparkle like morning dew on a crisp fall morning, wrapped in wire the color of golden autumn leaves.

Looking for something subdued? Check out the newest bronze pin which shines with subtle hints of lavender and gray.

See them in person this weekend, September 29-30, at Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville Virginia. Find Crafty Flutterby Creations in the Ruritan building nearest the entrance.

Located on picturesque country fairgrounds, this event features a crank-in (sock knitting machines), sheep herding demos, sheep to shawl contest, classes, fleece sale and, as always, a wonderful selection of fiber arts vendors!

Follow CraftyFlutterby on social media for the secret code phrase to get a shawl pin storage tin with any purchase. We are doing this for each event that we attend. Check out the event list on our website for the full lineup.

Shawl Pins Perfect for Any Season

Bronze is the name of the game this week-and I think you’ll find a few new favorites in this collection! From Dragonflies to Frosted Oceans, you’ll find rich, warm colors to showcase your luxurious knits. Which one are you over the moon for?

If you would like to see these pins in person, you’re in luck! I travel to events from coast to coast. Check out the Events page on my website for the full lineup. The most recent event was Michigan Fiber Festival. This is the most fun I’ve had at a fiber festival. They had kids and sheep in costume parading around the festival, among many other adorable and fascinating entertainments. Check out the event recap on my blog for pics and videos!

Out of This World Twirls in a rainbow of colors and Lilac and Golden Glow Round Pins enhance the already stunning selection of shawl pins. Whatever color you are knitting or crocheting there’s a shawl pin waiting to become the perfect finishing touch.

Affirmations Progress Keepers are both handy and inspirational. Use them to help show how much progress you’ve made in an hour, day, week, etc.

A very rare limited edition update: three shimmering shades Stitch Marker Sets are up for grabs while they last. Occasionally I take a break from all the shawl pin making to make stitch markers. Your needles and WIPs will thank you for using these lovely lightweight stitch markers. Each stitch marker has a large and a small end to fit multiple needle sizes well.

New Shimmery Summery Shawl Pins

Perfect for holding shawls in place on breezy summer afternoons, these new shawl pins are both stunning and practical. All pins feel as light as a butterfly alighting onto your shawl. They are sturdy enough to stay in place and light enough not to weigh lace shawls down. The Shimmering Violet Noteworthy Pin will keep you on trend with the Pantone color of the year. The shimmering shades in this pin look gorgeous on many shades of blue, indigo, violet, lavender and lilac.

See these pins in person Memorial Day Weekend at the Great Lakes Fiber Show in Wooster, Ohio. Or June 1st & 2nd at the Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival in Franklin, Indiana. See the events tab on my website for full list of events.

Warwick Reflections Shawl Knitalong

Introducing my newest shawl pattern, Warwick Reflections! A KAL starts May 28th!

Take a tour through Shakespeare country with us as we meander along the river Avon. Warwick Castle’s crenellations, towers, and medieval arched windows have inspired the cabling in this pattern. The lacework resembles the reflection of the castle in the river. Kits are available for pre-order featuring four stunning colorways from Fairy Tale Knits! Kits include the pattern, two skeins of yarn and a shawl pin. The pattern on its own is 50% off through the start of the KAL with no code needed.

So many indie dyers. One email.
