Big Top Big Shop Initiative
Fundraising Timeline: May 10-June 17th 2019.
Help Knitcircus Grow!
Our fiber community gave us a big boost in 2015 to get Knitcircus into the current Studio space, and now we’re asking for your support for the next big step. We have a chance to double our current store space, so we can bring in more indie dyer trunk shows, teach more classes, bring in guest speakers, hold charity fundraisers, bring in local artisans, and of course, give you more yarn!
We’ll need new carpet, shelves, tables, lighting and all that jazz, plus we’ve got two new yarn bases in the works. The first: a gorgeous 100% BFL fingering-weight yarn, the second: a collaboration with Ewetopia Woolen Mill using all Wisconsin fibers for a glorious DK-weight yarn. So this is like a Kickstarter, only we’re doing it ourselves, in true indie dyer spirit. Just like a Kickstarter, we’ll have basic goals and stretch goals, and we hope you’ll help us reach them!
You can pre-order stunning Mystery Yarns in colors inspired by ocean waters and starry skies, or you can purchase Limited Edition Yarns right now. Both purchase methods get us further toward our goal, and all Big Top Big Shop yarns come with special Knitcircus treats.
If you don't want any yarn but want to show your support, you can make a gift to our fundraiser here.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our new, improved, Knitcircus Yarns shop!
