Bringing you an 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 hooks, and fictional stories, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, the coming-together of friends, and a touch of magic.

Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters from the over-active imaginations of three geeky fiber fiends. 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…

Summer 2016 Kit Club Will Include:

The third story in the Unraveling series by author C. Jane Reid will further the tale of The Secret Stitch and the families of Ailee and Elsie. The war has ended for the newly formed United States of America, but a new war is brewing on the island home of the Donaghue clan. A truce that has existed for almost sixty years is crumbling. Many believe that three newcomers hold the key to ending the war, but Deirdre Donaghue doesn’t trust these strange men from the mainland. One of them has a secret, and she’s determined to uncover it before her life, and the lives of those she loves, is devastated beyond repair.

lushAs we move into summer, the next kit will feature two smaller accessory designs that complement warmer weather. On the island, crochet is as much a necessity as an accessory, but it can be hard to wear dense fabrics in the humid, coastal summers. Like our heroine, Deirdre, Laurinda Reddig has designed an airy new mystery pattern that works the same lace from different angles, allowing ocean breezes to cool the skin while still offering protection from the threat ever-present on their island home.

One extra-large skein of a new sport weight MCN Yarn from Black Trillium Fibres called Sunriver. This one and a half size skein of 495 yds/150g is special for our Kit Club.  A delightful mix of superwash merino, cashmere, and nylon, hand-dyed in your choice of colors between Lush (red) or Midnight Emerald (green).

    I love the concept of reading for pleasure and crocheting for pleasure being combined.
    I’m very interested in the next available Deluxe kit.

    Your new fan!

  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

    • Unfortunately we do not. We only order enough for the kits we sell in preorder. Many of the items from this kit will be available (I’ll be posting links soon).

      But don’t miss out on Kit #2 available later this week!

  4. Just received my kit,and I’m more than thrilled.The yarn and pattern are beautiful and I cant wait to read the book and see how the handmade metal spiral fits in. Thank you so much! I will be ordering again.

    • Thanks Jennifer for letting us know! We are having so much fun linking little details in the story to the other parts of the kit.

  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?

  6. Received my first kit and finished the first excerpt of the book. So excited to start shawl today!

    • Barbara,

      I’m so glad that you enjoyed the story. I have a passion for history and I learned so much researching for this book. I’m so eager to share part two with all the kit club members.

      C. Jane

  7. I just finished reading the first part of the story this morning. I absolutely CANNOT wait for the rest. I am in love with these characters! Thanks so much for doing this and merging my two passions!!

    • I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing. The author has been eager to hear reader’s responses to the story!

    • Emily,

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the book and the characters. I adore Ailee. I cannot wait for you to meet the newest characters in part two!

      C. Jane

  8. I purchased kit#2 this morning and also went to Amazon and purchased the first book. Will there be a time when we will be able to possible purchase the first pattern? I didn’t know about this Club until a few weeks ago. I’m very excited to get my kit! I love books and all things about yarn.

    • Welcome to our Club Diane! I hope you enjoy the book! The first kit pattern, Ailee’s Wedding Shawl, is now available for purchase on Ravelry. We waited to reveal the details of the previous kit until just a couple of days before the new kit went on sale. We wanted most of the kits to have arrived before we revealed them so our kit club members got to see them first. Enjoy! And be sure to join our Ravelry Group to share your progress.
