Ep. 79 - Acquiring More Stash

Hannah Civico

Thank you so much for watching and enjoying The Corner of Craft podcast! None of the links in this post link to Ravelry. I have linked to designer's Instagram accounts where possible, so you can see where they are choosing to sell their patterns. With yarn and project bags, I have linked people's shops directly.

2021 Charity Collab Advent

Helen of Giddy Yarns is hosting the Advent Charity Collab again for 2021! I've loved taking part in it for the past 2 years and was beyond thrilled when she asked again. This year, instead of just 12 days, you're going to receive 24 x 10g skeins, from 24 different UK-based dyers. 

They go on sale at www.giddyyarns.com at 8pm BST on July 1st and there's only going to be 50 available. In previous years, these have sold out in less than 5 minutes, so please set your alarms to avoid disappointment.

12 Days of Stitchmas Advent

I have been asked to have a stitch marker advent calendar for the past two years, but have decided to work a compromise. 12 days of gifts. 6 of them will be stitch markers, that I will have made with my own fair hand. Totally unique, festive and have never before seen in the shop. The other 6 gifts will be Chromatic Yarns mini skeins, in my Merino Sock base. Once again, these are new colourways that won't have been in my shop before or in other advent calendars.

I can only make 30 of these due to their time consuming nature. They will be in the shop at 2pm BST on 24th July 2021.
