Another yarn club?

There are hundreds of yarn & fiber clubs out there these days. I wanted to make something different with with my experience in knitting, art, crafting, and more. The theme of the yarn club is based on past projects developed over the past 18 years with all new patterns, designs, and techniques. I hope you can join me on the journey with learning new skills or just enjoying my new knitting projects.– Designer Donna Druchunas
