Exceptional Shawl Pin Styles From Eras Past!

  • A spiral-edged pin with a mother of pearl button in the center sits atop a cake of green yarn.

With just one event left for the year, I knew that I wanted to create something special to celebrate. There were plenty of perfectly pretty options on my wishlists with some of my favorite bead vendors, but somehow they just didn’t seem to fit the bill. While I was at Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival, I went wandering (as I often do) and came across a wonderful little button booth sharing vintage designs from decades past. I may have gone a little overboard with my selections, but I just couldn’t resist!

Since we still have a couple of weeks before SAFF arrives, I thought I’d put together a little sneak preview collection for the Indie Untangled community. All of the buttons chosen for this collection come from anywhere between the 1930s and 1980s. From Lovely Lotus to Pinwheel Pearl, each etched mother of pearl button has its own singular shimmering pattern.

Explore these styles and my one-of-a-kind Victorian Button Shawl Pin collection in the Crafty Flutterby booth at SAFF from October 22nd-24th. Which elegant era will you embrace?

Bespoke Tools & Notions

  • Sock-shaped wood with decorative holes.

Since the beginning of the adventure of La Cave à Laine I have always dreamed to carry a selected and curated collections of different tools and notions for knitters and crafters in general. I am finally beginning to have quite a collection of different scissors, notion kits, and other tools handy and beautiful at the same time.

Take, for example, my sock blockers: handmade in Austria in Austrian beech plywood, locally sourced and designed with love and care.

Or my handy travel kit: a small tin filled with all you need to craft on the go!

Or my extensive collection of stitch markers: from smooth metal, to ceramics, to semi precious stone’s chippings.

Or my handmade soap bar: made in Italy with only natural ingredients and an incredible scent of lavander!

There is a bit for everyone!

And of course all this will be available in my virtual booth during Indie Untangled!

Life is a Mix Tape

  • An illustration of a tape casette and the words Holiday Mix Tape inspired Advent box.

We can't wait to share our take on a Mystery Yarn Advent kit with you! This year's theme is Holiday Mix Tape, and it's all inspired by our family's favorite holiday music. Turning on the holiday music while we decorate, wrap gifts, bake cookies, and spend time together is a huge part of the season for us and I want to share some of that with you. Each colorway is inspired by a different holiday tune, and the entire box vibe is inspired by those mix tapes I used to make in years past.

Preorders close soon for the Jilly & Kiddles 2021 Advent Box. This box will ship to be received in November 2021, so you will have it to start opening on Dec 1st. Your Advent Box will have everything you need for a holiday season full of Fibery Fun!

Advent Box includes:

– 24 Mini skeins the the base of your choosing, one to open each day, starting Dec 1st through Dec 24th.
– Exclusive xix tape-inspired project bag
– Extra surprises from me to open on days of your choosing or all at once – all themed, of course!
– U.S. shipping is Free!
– Each item will arrive individually wrapped for you, and the minis will be marked with the date to be opened. It's like getting a special surprise gift every day during Advent–isn't that fun?
– You'll receive access to my Holiday Mix Tape playlist so you can listen along too!

Want to join me on this festive trip down memory lane? Order yours today so you don't miss out. Photos of yarn and goodies are examples of last year's box to give you an idea of what could be included — please keep in mind that this year's box will be completely different and is a mystery. That's part of the fun!

Trick Or Treat Yo’Self!

  • An illustration of a ghost holding a pumpkin basket in front of an orange ball of yarn and the words Trick Or Treat Yo'self 2021.

Why should the kids have all the fun? Let’s Trick-or-Treat for Yarn!

Last year, I wanted to do something fun for grownups too, and it was such a hit that I’m bringing it back! I’m offering a special Trick-or-Treat Mystery Bag so you can trick or treat yo’self.

Here’s what you can look forward to:
You’ll get one full skein of mystery yarn. You can choose the weight you prefer or embrace the fun and let me surprise you. Each skein comes with a fun “Trick-or-Treat” Surprise just from me. Shhh… it’s a secret! I’ll also throw a special prize into every seventh one ordered, so maybe you’ll be one of the lucky recipients! Each Trick-or-Treat Bag is packaged separately, so feel free to add as many as you’d like to your cart. You can get one or two for yourself, one for a friend… whatever you’d like! You could even hedge your bets and order seven, so you’ll be guaranteed an extra prize. Plus, these are a great deal on a full skein of yarn, even without the extra goodie, so grab one while you can!

Feel free to leave me a note when you check out with a little direction to help me choose your colorway. That adds to the fun on my end, and helps you get something you’re going to LOVE! (Here of some examples of great hints: I love green, prefer brights, not a fan of pink, etc) I cannot fulfill requests for specific colorways or guarantee an exact match to your hints, but I’ll definitely do the best I can. You know I want to make you guys happy! I’m so excited to send out some special mystery packages so my customers can feel like kiddos on… well, on Halloween! 🎃

These will be offered while supplies last, and fulfilled in the order they are received. The earlier your order, the better I’ll be able to find the perfect match for you. Trick-or-Treat Bags begin shipping Oct. 5th, so be sure to treat yo’self! Find Trick-or-Treat Mystery Bags in the Clubs and Kits section of the website.

Well, the culprit has been captured: It’s the Stashmonster! Stashmonster flies between yarn lovers’ homes trading skeins and multiplying your stash when you’re not looking. (PHEW! …and this whole time we thought we made all those purchases? Wow.)

Pop this enamel pin onto your favorite yarn project bag, jacket, or bulletin board to share the story that Stashmonster is out there. At just $10 each, he also makes a great gift for all your fiber friends.
