What is the N Club?
In the fall of every year I open enrollment for my flagship club, The N Club.
N Club is my most special and exclusive year-long kit club and knit-a-long. It's perfect for knitters who like to challenge themselves and learn new techniques, in a fun and extremely supportive environment.
Members of the N Club receive three extraordinary kits featuring a brand new design you can't purchase anywhere else, paired with bespoke yarn that’s dyed just for us.
Each pattern is written with an optional beaded component (for those who love beads as much as I do), and includes a full-length video tutorial. Tucked inside each and every box is also a surprise gift! It's a secret, but I know you're going to love it.
Your membership grants you access to our private Facebook community just for the N Club. This is where you can chat with old friends, and make some new ones! It's also where you can find support for any challenge you face with the design. My policy is always No Knitter Left Behind, which means either I or another expert knitter will help you work through the tricky bits.
Included with your membership is also an invitation to our fun virtual unboxing events! For each design I host a party on Zoom where we unbox the kit and talk about each component inside. I do a deep dive into the design to show you everything you need to know to knit the pattern successfully. After that we split up into breakout rooms and knit together. It's like a mini retreat from the comfort of your own home!
Now that you've got a handle on what the N Club is, I want to let you in on what goes on behind the scenes.
Creating each design starts with selecting a yarn that will be beautiful to wear and handle. I love working with small producers that create a truly exceptional product.

Next I select an independent dyer to create custom colorways that bring out the best in my designs. This inspires me to push my creativity, and allows me to support other small businesses in the process.

Oh, and the design! This is where I get to test my limits, play with an idea I’ve been bouncing around, or try an unusual construction method. I sketch and design year-round to put the best of my best work into the hands of N Club members.
Finally, I make video tutorials to make sure you have success with your knitting. These videos are pre-recorded and will be hyperlinked in the pattern for you to refer to whenever you need them!
And then I do it two more times to create a total of THREE extra special kits that ship out to you over the course of 2022. That’s a whole year of inspired knitting, coming right to your doorstep!

So much of my design inspiration and magic goes into making this club the experience that it is. It motivates me to create exceptional designs that I know you'll love, from casting on to casting off. When I look back at the end of the year, the pieces I design for my clubs are always my favorites.
Simply put, clubs are a fantastic experience for everyone. If you’re the type that likes a list (I am!) here are the top reasons that I love The N Club:
1) It keeps interesting projects on your needles;
2) It keeps you learning and using your brain;
3) It connects you with an extensive community of creative knitters; and
4) It supports the work I do and enables me to be here week after week playing with yarn with y’all.
In a world where we can get so much so fast, for N Club members I am creating something slow, something special, and something you can’t get just anywhere.
