January 2021 Reveals

Happy New Year!!

As we cozy into the New Year, we’re excited to partner with another amazing influencer. This month, we worked with Margaret Olander of Sheepishly Sharing to create the colorways found in our Membership Crates. Margaret is a maker’s maker stitching up crochet, knit, and sewing projects on her Sheepishly Sharing YouTube channel. She also shares other DIY crafts, recipes, and helpful tips through her blog keeping us informed about her adventures along the way. This month, you’ll find a crochet pattern from Margaret in our Membership Crate!

With our January theme, we are exploring hazy hues of winter months. Shadows serve to highlight reflections, and this month’s crates explore a palette of deep, slightly decayed tones, paired with warm blushes, reds, and the palest pinks and greens.
