4 Subscriptions for Creative Types

Gift Guide by Underground Crafter

Gift Guide: 4 Subscriptions for Creatives - Subscriptions are fun gifts because they keep on giving throughout the year. Creative types love to make things, so gifts that are filled with creative ideas or supplies will keep them inspired. This roundup includes digital subscriptions and subscription boxes. Includes gift ideas for foodies, crocheters, knitters, sewists and quilters, and crafters of all kinds!I’m sharing my list in alphabetical order because ranking was just too hard! My four subscription recommendations for creative types are:

CreativeBug

CreativeBug is an online platform with thousands of classes in crochet, knitting, sewing, quilting, papercrafts, and more! Classes are available for a variety of skill levels, including beginner, for your creative friends who want to branch out into new crafts. And, CreativeBug donates 5% of every dollar earned to non-profit organizations that support art education.

3-, 6-, and 12-month gift subscriptions are available. If the recipient is already a subscriber, your gift will add more time to their subscription.

Darn Good Yarn Fabric of the Month

Darn Good Yarn is an awesome company that brings ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, and beautiful yarns and other products to crafters all over the world. I first experienced their products when I designed the Silk Elegance Shawl. The Fabric of the Month subscription is just one of Darn Good Yarn’s subscription options and it’s an affordable way to gift gorgeous and unique fabrics from India and Nepal to your favorite sewist or quilter every month.

I’m working on a project with the Fabric of the Month sample I received, but until then, you can see what a typical delivery looks like. It comes wrapped in a beautiful project bag…

…with a note about the subscription, 3 pieces of fabric (each of which is at least the size of a fat quarter), and a sample card of yarn or ribbon.

If you like the story of Darn Good Yarn but your friends and family don’t sew, you can also try their two subscriptions for crocheters and knitters, Yarn of the Month and Premium Yarn of the Month, or their subscription for jewelers and other crafters, Beads of the Month.

Subscriptions are available on a monthly basis and are auto-renewed on the first of each month, so you can create your own gift subscription of your preferred length. To gift a subscription, just enter the recipient’s shipping address at check out.

Nonna Box

Nonna Box is a monthly subscription box perfect for foodies, those with wanderlust, and Italian-Americans hoping to get a taste of the home country every month.

Each box has a regional theme, stories about the region, artisanal treats, and recipes.

I wish I could tell you how good everything tastes, but this box went pretty quickly in my house. I didn’t even eat all of it myself! I loved the corn cookies, which were a treat I had never tried before. The instructions for making the mushroom risotto are very straightforward.

Nonna Box has gift cards that can be used for tasty Italian goods a la carte or so the recipient can order a subscription.

Unwind by Melody’s Makings

Melody is the talented crochet and knitting designer behind Melody’s Makings. She just launched her own subscription box, Unwind. Each box includes yummy treats, inspiration, and yarn, so Unwind is a great gift for crocheters or knitters.

Shipping is free within the U.S. One-time payment gift options are available for 3- and 6-month subscriptions if you’d like to gift a subscription.

Crochet Pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl

Free crochet pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl in Darn Good Yarn Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn by Underground Crafter | Beautiful colors and a smooth, silky drape combine in this rectangular shawl with a curved motif border.

The Silk Elegance Shawl is a stunning rectangular shawl with a curved, motif border. Made with a luxurious and eco-friendly reclaimed silk yarn in beautiful, herbal dyed colors, it’s the perfect accessory for any outfit. This pattern uses simple stitches, making it a great project for beginners, or for more advanced crocheters looking for a relaxing project.

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links. This post is sponsored by Darn Good Yarn, but the opinions and thoughts are my own.

Earlier this year, I became an affiliate of Darn Good Yarn, an indie yarn company that combines a social mission with some awesome yarn. It was founded in 2008 by a U.S. Air Force veteran. Darn Good Yarn focuses on yarns made from upcycled and reclaimed fibers. Darn Good Yarn also works with women in India and Nepal to provide a sustainable income. You can watch the story of Darn Good Yarn below.

 

Since it started, Darn Good Yarn has expanded beyond yarn. They also sell yarn bowls, yarn swifts, beads, skirts made from the same upcycled materials, and more.

I originally heard about Darn Good Yarn from my friend Rhondda at Oombawka Design. (You can get Rhondda’s latest pattern in Darn Good Yarn Roving Silk yarn, the Itsy Bitsy Tiered Air Plant Holder, here.) Though I completely trust Rhondda, I didn’t feel comfortable endorsing Darn Good Yarn (even with their awesome mission!) until I, you know, actually used the yarn.

I was so excited when the Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn in Maine Coastline (at top) and Vintage Rose (at bottom) arrived in the mail. The yarn was beautifully packaged and included a card that tells the story of the Darn Good Yarn.

The silk is upcycled Anamika silk that is fairly traded. It’s dyed with natural herbs, flowers, and plants so its a completely sustainable product. The colors are soft and beautiful and the yarn is so so so soft. It was a lot of fun to work with.

Are you ready to hear about the shawl?

Free crochet pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl in Darn Good Yarn Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn by Underground Crafter | Beautiful colors and a smooth, silky drape combine in this rectangular shawl with a curved motif border.I wanted to design something simple that would let the colors tell the story of this yarn, but I didn’t want the shawl to be too plain. I mean, the yarn is a show-stopper, so the shawl should be, too, right?

I’ll confess that I started and stopped this shawl a few times with a few different stitch patterns. I was a bit worried about unraveling the silk but it didn’t pill and it didn’t rip, so that was a great relief. (In other words, while you do need to hand wash and dry flat, this yarn is not wimpy.)

Free crochet pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl in Darn Good Yarn Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn by Underground Crafter | Beautiful colors and a smooth, silky drape combine in this rectangular shawl with a curved motif border.The Silk Elegance Shawl actually starts with the bottom border, made of simple, one round circle motifs that are joined-as-you-go. Once you have the border set up, you’ll create a joining row that lays the foundation for the rectangular body of the shawl. Then, you’ll use a simple mesh pattern with stripes to finish up. Just to give you an idea of how this shawl looks when stretched out, I took a picture of it over the couch.

Free crochet pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl in Darn Good Yarn Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn by Underground Crafter | Beautiful colors and a smooth, silky drape combine in this rectangular shawl with a curved motif border.I used all 10 colors in both packs, but I rearranged the order. You could follow my colors, work through each skein until it is finished, or choose another color combination.

Free crochet pattern: Silk Elegance Shawl in Darn Good Yarn Herbal Dyed Recycled Silk DK yarn by Underground Crafter | Beautiful colors and a smooth, silky drape combine in this rectangular shawl with a curved motif border.I hope you enjoy the Silk Elegance Shawl! I’m looking forward to wearing mine the next time I’ll be in some overly air conditioned place.
