Sponsor Spotlight: Michelle’s Assortment

I’ve actually met today’s sponsor in real life, so I’m excited to tell you more about Michelle’s Assortment.

Michelle from Michelle's Assortment at Vogue Knitting Live NYC 2014Michelle is a talented wire worker who designs shawl pins, stitch markers, row counter bracelets, and other crochet and knitting accessories. (Recently, she added knitting patterns to her repetoire.)

In addition to her Etsy shop, Michelle attends fiber festivals and yarn events around the U.S. as a vendor. Back in 2014, she invited me to help out at her booth at Vogue Knitting Live in New York City, and I had the chance to spend a few hours with Michelle and her amazing wire work.


Since then, I’ve used many shawl pins by Michelle, and I’ve been delighted with each one! Here are just a few, making cameo appearances in some of my designs…

I’ve also given quite a few as gifts along with handmade shawls.

So, as you may have guessed, Michelle’s Assortment is offering the winner’s choice of any one shawl pin in her Etsy shop to one lucky end-of-CAL giveaway winner!

Thank you, Michelle’s Assortment, for sponsoring the crochet-a-long.

Which Michelle’s Assortment shawl pin do you like the best?

  1. These are really cool. I dreamed I won one, but someone picked it up and gave it away to someone else. Oh well, it was lovely all the same!
