Black Friday Super Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I’m doing a super sale from now through Cyber Monday. When you buy three skeins of yarn or art batts, or a combination of both, you’ll get one for free. You don’t even need a coupon code. Just add four items to your cart and one will be free!!!

I’m also having a “secret sale” for newsletter subscribers only, with something different each day between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I’ll be sending out the email to all my subscribers on Thursday evening, so if you subscribe before then, you’ll get to learn about the secret sales too.

Thanks for looking!

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!

Explore over 100 indie yarn and fiber shops

With the changes in the marketplace, plenty of new indie shops have been opening on FiberCrafty. This means lots of gorgeous new listings and product options! Scroll through and just browse or use our filters to search for breed specific yarn or fiber, a yarn weight for that project you have been eyeing or if you just want something in purple.

Posted pictures correspond to the shops listed below!

Pen & Hook is one of our newer shops and has a really unique product line of hand dyed sari silk. It’s available in 12 colors and varying lengths. Just imagine all the unique ways this could be used from adding textured stripes, to a gorgeous statement cowl to wrapping gifts or creating jewelry. Lisa also has beautifully hand-dyed silk yarn listings.

The Spun Bunny shop has a variety of yarn in different fibers (yak, silk, Cashmere and more!) and weights (from lace to worsted), as well as different types of spinning fiber that range in preparations like braids, rolags, and silk brick. Marissa’s love of color really shows!

One of my favorite things about the APLCrafts Handmade shop is that many of the yarns can be used beautifully together. Alicia also offers great suggestions for coordinating yarns in each listing. She doesn’t always repeat her colorways so if you see something you like, don’t wait around.

Sharon mostly has yarn but also offers some fiber in her CabinWool shop as well. She uses a range of yarn bases including corriedale and has some really beautiful variegated options. Check out her beautiful “Kissin Cousins” sets – two coordinating skeins that can be purchased individually as well.

LizaDeeOriginals is another newer shop and each time I see one of her listings for yarn or fiber, it takes my breath away! Bobbie’s dye technique is unique and she also has some true, gradual color gradients.

Jacqui of Lowlander Yarn Studio has just started adding listings to her shop and she offers a luxurious yarn base that is perfect for shawls! It is a blend of BFL, silk and cashmere available in multiple tonal colors, inspired by nature.

Fluffy U Fiber Farm’s Summer Sale

Being a sheep farmer has been a little difficult this year as the weather has refused to cooperate. So if all goes well we will be baling hay this weekend. Which means the sheep will be well fed and happy and producing beautiful fleeces to be made into yummy yarns to knit or crochet projects to your heart’s content. So in honor of hay baling and beautiful summer weather we are having a yarn sale on our website until July 15th with free shipping.

We are excited to be working with our local mill to be adding some new natural yarn blends to our line come September. We will be showcasing them at Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival. With the addition of the new yarns we are looking for someone who might be interested in working with us to design a pattern or two to go with our yarns. If anyone has an interest in collaborating please contact us.
