ROMANCE! ADVENTURE! CROCHET?

Bringing you a unique CROCHET KIT CLUB bound together by yarns, both wooly and wordy…

Every craft lovingly handmade tells a story. Ficstitches Yarns takes creating to another level by offering crochet patterns along with hand-dyed yarn, handmade accessories, and fictional stories, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, the coming-together of friends, and a touch of the supernatural.

Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters that combines your two favorite hobbies, Crochet and Reading! So much more than a yarn club, each element of these kits is an adventure, with a little bit of mystery and a whole lot of fun…

The fourth story in the Unraveling series by author C. Jane Reid follows the great-great grandson of Ailee Donaghue. In the backwoods of Kentucky, dangers lurk. Hollis Donaghue has traveled the width and breadth of the young state, but the stories he’s encountering lately don’t feel like the usual tragedies of Indian raids and neighbor squabbles. He’s been on the long hunt nearly his entire life, and he’s ready to settle down if Bea Confer, the widow woman who spins yarn for him, will take him, but not until he’s gotten to the bottom of the latest attacks. He knows Bea frets for his safety, but he’s more concerned for hers, no matter how readily she can bring that pistol of hers to bear. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to protect the people he loves.

The stories from our first 3 kits are now a novel, The Secret Stitchavailable on e-book and print. The second book will be available later this month as The Sojourn Stitch.

Travel through the backwoods of Kentucky can be dangerous, but Hollis is careful, using the skills his mother taught him. He gets more than a few odd looks from passersby who see him with his crochet hooks, but he never much cared what others thought. So both he and his traveling companions are adorned by his creations. Designer Laurinda Reddig offers us a Design for one of his more useful accessories that helps make journeys not only easier but stylish as well.

  3. I just want to say how fabulous Laurinda was in contacting me with the problem I encountered and helping to resolve it! The problem was evidently with my bank card and not the website, so I know how to fix for future shipments. Super excited to receive my first kit next month!! Thank you so very much!

    • We are planning for the week of June 15th. Printing books and other details are taking a little bit longer than we hoped. But everything is coming together beautifully! We will email all those who purchased a Kit as soon as they have shipped. — Laurinda

  5. If I missed out on the first kit, will I be able to purchase the fictional story separately so I will have the complete set after the other two kits?

    This looks like a great blending of all of the things I LOVE and can’t wait to try out the next kit!!!!!!

    • Absolutely! C.Jane will be providing links for purchasing the Part 1, when the next kits go on sale. So you’ll be able to order and read it while you wait for the next kit. 🙂 Have you signed up for our mailing list, to be the first to know when they become available?
