    Dear Stacy,
    I love your Kits but due to surgeries & now a job I here very little time.I’m backed up even with your sweet kits. Reluctantly I am having to discontinue the club and monthly kits. Please remove me from the club list until further notice.


    • Stacey says:

      No problem Marilyn! Instructions for how to cancel your Kit Club subscription are in the FAQ of the Kit Club webpage! (
      Hope you heal well!

    Dear Stacey,
    I love your patterns and blogs and classes. I have been following you for awhile and am not receiving the newsletter blogs any more. Would love to continue to get them please. I’ve tried to re subscribe and it won’t let me. I’ve checked my junk mail not showing up there either. Is there something I new to sign up for to be able to get them again?
    Thank you,
    Bethany Cameron

    • Stacey says:

      Oh, no! I don’t know what the problem is!
      Do you have an old one? In your trash, maybe? My best recommendation is for you to unsubscribe (using an old one for the link) and then sign up again.
      Or maybe with a 2nd email address? I’m so sorry!

    Do you just sell these patterns or will you actually make the owls too? I would like to purchase an owl if they can come ready made. Thank you!

    I never received the kit that apparently went out in July. I verified that payment went through successfully but I never received anything, no emails saying there was an issue, or anything. I’m kind of bothered by the oversight. You basically forgot me entirely, I wasn’t included in the kit email or anything. I’d like to be contacted ASAP about this. Thank you.

    Just reading up on 10 crochet tips for beginners, of which #6 is your tip to look for the “teardrop”. I’ve been crocheting for over 45 years and I have no idea what you mean by “teardrop”!! I’m guessing from the rest of your tip that it refers to either gauge or tension. Could you explain so I can tell my beginners when I’m showing someone how to crochet?
    Thanks! Love the internet for all the wonderful info/patterns/groups/CALS, etc. Like the world’s largest group of crochet friends at our fingertips!!

    Hi Stacey,
    I just wanted to let you know that I received my Tiny Hands yarn skein necklace and it is even more adorable in person! I have ordered from Tiny Hands before and was very pleased with the detail and workmanship. Thank you so much for giving your readers a chance to purchase one of these necklaces at a very reasonable price. Maybe you two can partner again in the future?
    Again, a very sincere thank you from a very pleased subscriber.

    Hi Stacey,
    I ordered a few items, but I haven’t received a confirmation email. I hope my order went through.
    Im excited for the things I purchased :)

    Hey Stacy,

    I have a couple of questions….do you still sell your books? I have a Daughter in Italy(Hubby is stationed there), there are several things I wanted to get for her and was wondering if you’ll hold the items I purchase so I can have you pack them all together and send them(of course I’ll pay for whatever shipping is. They are just about to have their first baby and she has started to Crochet. I thought that your book that is filled with Baby items would be perfect. Have you published a crochet book for beginners? I only crochet the things I get from one of your clubs I’m enrolled in, but I try to keep up with all the things you are up to and am going to be taking one of your Craftsy classes. Forgive me for not remembering the Name of the Baby Crochet Book! Dana (my daughter) said that the base they are stationed on has very few craft things and craft items are expensive in Italy. I thought a Care Package would be the perfect thing. She knows who your are as I talk about you and the new packages I receive. The are expecting a Little Girl (Harper) in the next week. I know your busy, especially with a little one as well. Just drop a note when you can at the address I posted. Thanks a ton…Kirsten

    Hi Stacey ~ I follow you on Facebook and Pinterest and I love your amigurmi patterns. I’d like to ask you a question. What brand / blend of yarn do you prefer to use to keep your creations looking beautiful even if they’re “well loved”? I’m about to embark on a large project making dolls & clothes and I’d like them to look beautiful for a long time. I crocheted a dragon for my son a little over a year ago and it looks as well loved as it is (I’ve had to replace one eye twice, and now he’s going to become a dragon pirate with an eye patch). Thanks for your help! ~Cheryl

      My preference is for 100% wool. I find it lasts much longer than acrylic (which tends to stretch).
      I choose a medium wool… something super soft (like merino) will pill easily. Basically, if it’s a good yarn for a sweater, then it’s a good yarn for a doll!
      Some patterns also do better than others. The dragon (because it has a long body) tends to loose stuffing at the neck and then his head gets droopy. Ones with separate heads and necks that you stitch together hold up better!

  11. Luci says:

    Thank you so much for your written tutorial and video tutorial for the crochet loop stitch. I had watched another video which was with the pattern I was following but it did not explain it as clearly as you did. I was getting discouraged as my loops would be unraveling. Your instructions and your video clearly addressed this issue. Now I will give it another try.

    • Stacey says:

      I’m glad you found me, Luci! Yes, I know the problem you mean exactly! It’s catching that second side of the loop that does the trick :)

    HI Stacey, I was trying to purchase the tiny scissors on your website. It said that it was on stock and in my cart, but I could not purchase it. When I got to checkout it said not enough on stock.

    • Stacey says:

      Hi Lara!
      A number of colors are sold out… it’s possible that someone made a purchase before you checked out?
      There’s currently only one purple left!

  13. Dee says:

    I am sitting here sobbing with happiness as I finally found someone to tell me where to put my markers for the gusset decreases. I can’t tell you how many sites I went to to find my answer to no avail. I am so so happy to finally be able to finish my socks. I’m sorry I couldn’t find the space on the easy peasy sock page to leave this note. Thank you again and I found the pattern simple to follow even though I am using a small circular needle. Thank you , thank you.
