Raise your hand if you have a yarn stash...

Some of us are REALLY good at gathering yarn - it's practically a hobby in and of itself. But gathering yarn and using the yarn are two very different things. The 6-week Stash Sprint is a chance to unpack your yarn secrets, turn your stash into your very own personal yarn shop and learn new, innovative ways to make use of what's on your shelves. Let go of stash shame and embrace your stash like a pro. Know exactly what you have on hand, how to use it, and how to shop for what you need next. If you've ever worried that your yarn stash might outlive you - this 6-week stash sprint will change the way you see your fiber collection. And how you use it. The next Stash Sprint session starts March 2022.
