My Favorite Things!
This year's Advent Calendar will feature some of my personal "favorite things!" I have collaborated with other makers/designers to make this a really awesome Calendar you won't want to miss!
Let's start at the very beginning...
Yes! All items in this Advent Calendar will have reference and inspiration from “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. Every maker is also a huge fan of the movie and song, right along-side all of us! So, this is going to be a blast opening up every single surprise!
What’s in the box?
There will be 25 days of goodies, all yarn and knitting related treats! All individually packaged and numbered!
I have collaborated with 7 other makers to pull this together for you. All of them are also drawing inspiration from “My Favorite Things.” Makers are listed below:
- Becky of PurlSmith - https://www.etsy.com/shop/PurlSmith
- Jen of Webster Street Knittery - https://www.ravelry.com/designers/webster-street-knittery
- Kathryn of lolodidit - my sister’s hands are behind all the beautiful bags in my shop.
- Lindsay of SimplyServingHK - https://www.etsy.com/shop/SimplyServing
- Lo-Lo by BarMaids - https://bar-maids.com
- Marie of Olive Knits - http://www.oliveknits.com/about/
- Martha of Tuft Woolens - http://www.tuftwoolens.com
On the days you’re not opening goodies from these makers, you’ll be receiving an exclusive and cohesive collection of yarn from me! 16 brand new colorways!
I don't want to give too much away about what you'll get in each package, but if you look at each maker, I think you can easily see what each maker does and get a little taste of what might be in this package.
I did not ask these makers to make something to my specifications. These are all artists in their own right. I gave them the theme and concept and they will be creating something from their imaginations and ideas.
Yarn Base is Lo-riginal:
fingering weight, 4ply, 28g, 110 yards
85% Extra Fine Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon
This yarn base is exclusively available only at lolodidit! It is a base that we've been dreaming of and working on putting into production since early 2017. This is an ethically sourced wool. It has an absolutely gorgeous next to skin feel. Perfect content and ply for socks, but soft enough for any shawl, scarf, cowl, sweater...etc!
How do I get my favorite things?!
All the details are here. I am sure more questions will come up, if they do, email me! Any questions that I think other people will be asking, I'll post the answers on my website.
How much will this cost?
$319 + shipping
Will you ship internationally?
Absolutely! We will have shipping cost break downs for Canada and the rest of the world in the listing. I’m still working on making sure the shipping estimates are as accurate as possible. But, I’m estimating it to be $42 USD for Canada and $60 USD for everywhere else in the world. It is Priority International Shipping through the United States Postal Service. Their estimated delivery times on this service are 6-10 business days. This is estimated, not guaranteed.
When will you ship this package?
We plan on shipping the 1st week of November, all in one box.
What if I move before you ship the package?
No problem, just push reply on your order confirmation email, and tell me your updated address. It is very important you use the same email address you checked out with, for privacy reasons, I need to communicate with you through only that email address.
How long will the listing be available for purchase?
All of July!! I am very much a person who loves making it an easy shopping experience and not so much pressure and necessity for an alarm. So, the original plan is to leave it up throughout July, which I hope I will be able to do!
Just in Case: I do have 7 other makers I’m collaborating with. If we sell over the estimates I gave them, I may have to turn the listing off early. So, definitely make sure to check out earlier in the month instead of later if this is something you’re really really wanting.
It will go on sale on Sunday July 1st at 12am PST.
Where do I purchase the Advent Calendar?
It will be in my "Limited Time" section - here's a link. You won't see the listing until it's live on July 1st:
IMPORTANT: Absolutely no returns or exchanges on this purchase, once you check out, the sale is final. These items are being made especially for you.
