Video Advent and Surprise Thread or Skein with Purchase!


December 2022


New Books!


If you've been on the email list for a while, you may know how much Tina and Kelli LOVE books.  There is just something so satisfying about flipping through a book and petting the pages. What? Don't you pet the pages? Either way, add some books to your library like the third volume of Estonian Knitting (English version).  The third volume is all about mittens and looks like an amazing book.  Kelli will put up a quick book talk as soon as it arrives. Tatters might enjoy Butterflies from Iris Neibach, the perfect book to keep the winter "blahs" away with bright and colorful tatting threads. 

Check out the books here!



Surprise Skein or Thread!

Just to say thank you, we are giving away a surprise ball of thread with all tatting supplies purchases of $40 or more OR a surprise skein of indie-dyed yarn with all purchases of $100 or more.  It's our way to say thank you for being our wonderful customers.

Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!


Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. We are making blankets, but with a twist.

This is a VERY relaxed Crochet/Knit/Stitch/Tat-a-long that you can join at any time.  We have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration.  Tina's Grandma's Flower Afghan pattern is free to participants and Kelli's BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern is too.  We also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes.

Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too.  Tina is stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. Kelli is also tatting a temperature table runner and has a free pattern on our Knit/Crochet-a-long page. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here
