Winter Solstice Yarn Club

Lady Dye Yarns is collaborating with Brooklyn Boy Knits, Brown Gyrl Knits, Coffee by Kee, and Nerd Bird Makery, all amazing men and women of color, for our next yarn club!

We have each spoken candidly about the need to have a more diverse crafting industry and the importance of creating products for a more diverse audience. This has been a part of the mission of all of our businesses since the beginning, and we are continuing this through our Winter Solstice Yarn Club for the month of December.

In this club, you will receive the following:
• One skein of worsted weight yarn by Lady Dye Yarns
• An exclusive knitting pattern by Brooklyn Boy Knits
• A choice between coffee or tea by Coffee by Kee
• Stitch markers by Brown Gyrl Knits
• An enamel pin by Nerd Bird Makery

A surprise item will also be included!

Signups end November 21! All packages will be shipped out by December 1.

The FiberCrafty shops are celebrating Small Business Saturday in a big way!

We aren’t just celebrating Small Business Saturday — we celebrate small businesses every day! Over at the FiberCrafty Marketplace, we are having a full week long frenzy with plenty of our shops offering coupon codes, free shipping and other goodies! If you want to get a complete list of all the deals to be found, just let me know.

In the meantime, let me tempt you with highlights from a few of our shops! Pictured above, in order.

Named after Marissa’s first bunny, The Spun Bunny specializes in beautiful handdyed yarn and fiber that come in a variety of fibers, bases and preparations. A beautiful selection from her studio in PA!

Several of our shops have AMAZING variety. Pixie Knit Designs is one of them. Based in NC, Tammie has handspun yarn, stitch markers and fiber for spinning.

Donna, based in NJ, owns LunaStitch which is another varied shop. She makes high quality project bags, has beautiful magnetic shawl pins (no holes!) and tools (fabulous stocking stuffers!)

The proprietress of My Grandma’s Garden is Lori of IL and she plays with clay. She has unique tools, buttons and stitch markers in her shop. She also has yarn keepers, handspun yarn and more! Well worth a look.

If you are part of any fandom, check out The Artful Princess! Sarah is based in GA and offers a large collection of exquisitely made project bags and stitch markers.

Serenity Artisans is the place to go for a luxury gift. Sue handcrafts stunning yarn bowls in PA from a variety of woods. These are an elegant example of functional art for fiber crafters.

This is just a sampling of the shops and products on FiberCrafty! Do you follow us on Instagram? We help you stay in the loop with our newest listings.

Shop owners: if you are looking for an easy to use, cost-effective place to host a shop front, take a look at FiberCrafty! We provide a lot of information in our FAQ and it just takes a few minutes to open a shop. Questions? Just hit the Contact Vendor button!

Nerd Bird Makery

Nerd Bird Makery is a small online shop — with a home base in Portland, Oregon — specializing in unique goods for crafters.

The motivation for launching this shop was the desire to create diverse and inclusive products representing knitters of all backgrounds. Over the last year, we’ve been pretty fortunate to be able to donate some of the profits to causes we believe in, including women running in the midterm elections (Sharice Davids, Shireen Ghorbani and Lucy McBath), the ACLU and World Relief, an organization that works with refugees.

Our shop is currently stocked with enamel pins, apparel, totes and paper goods, including art prints, greeting cards and gift tags.

Interested in seeing our products in person? We have products in select local yarn shops across the U.S. and we will also be at Indie Untangled in the Canon Hand Dyes booth.
