What if you had a network of positive, supportive knitter and crocheter friends to help and encourage you along your crafty journey?

We all know there are multitudes of other crafters out there on the internet to connect with, but who wants to wade through all of the drama and negativity of social media just to find a few helpful tips or have a conversation with a yarn-loving friend?

But guess what?  There’s no need to mess with all of that anymore. 

You CAN connect and interact with other yarn crafters online, WITHOUT the negativity of social media, and enjoy the company of others who love yarn just as much as you do.

Introducing The Yay For Yarn Community

A safe, clean, drama-free space where we can all come together to share our love of yarn.

Here's what you'll get as a Yay For Yarn Community Member:

Join other like-minded knitters and crocheters to share tips, ideas, and project photos with each other, so you can help and share with one another along your crafty journeys

Get help from other crafters when you get stuck or need help troubleshooting your project, which means you’ll always have someone to turn to and ask questions of when you run into a problem with your yarn crafts

Access to exclusive, members-only knit-alongs and crochet-alongs, so you can enjoy creating projects together with other crafters, helping each other out, and sharing in everyone’s successes and finished projects

Early access to new Yay For Yarn pattern releases, which means you’ll have the opportunity to snap up new PDF patterns BEFORE they are released to the public

Plus, your exclusive members-only discount codes will allow you to get a discount on all Yay For Yarn Patterns, Courses, and Merchandise

And with Behind-the-scenes access to what’s going on at Yay For Yarn, you’ll get a glimpse of my creative process, see new patterns and projects before they’re released, and share your input if you like.  😉

IMAGINE how much more enjoyable knitting and crochet would be to you if you had a positive, supportive network of crafty friends to share struggles and successes with. 

What if being a part of this online yarn craft community could help take the stress out of your craft, bring you more positivity, and help you enjoy yarn even more? 

How much more fun would yarn crafting be?

Hi, I’m Brianna, the blogger, designer, and yarn craft teacher behind Yay For Yarn.

I love teaching knitting & crochet, and connecting with others who love yarn crafts, but I don’t love all of the drama and negativity of social media.

My goal is to help you become a better crafter.  That’s why I created The Yay For Yarn Community, to help you make more crafty friends, gain more confidence in your craft, and have more fun with knitting & crochet!


What happens after I join the community?

All you have to do is create an email / password login to start your FREE 7-day trial, and get immediate access to the community and all included benefits.  No card or payment info is required to get started with your free trial.  After your 7-day free trial, you’ll need to enter payment info in your account to continue being a community member.

Can I cancel my membership if I don’t feel the community is a good fit for me?

Yes, you can cancel your membership anytime inside your user account.

How is this different from a Facebook group or online forum?

The Yay For Yarn Community is kinda similar to other social platforms, in the sense that you can create posts, share photos, videos, links, tag other members, like and comment on other people’s posts, send private messages to other members, etc.  However, there are NO ads, and the Community Rules do not allow drama, politics, profanity, criticism, hate speech, adult content, spam, soliciting, or negativity, so you don’t have to worry about any of the negative aspects of social media. 

Is there a mobile app?

Yes!  The Yay For Yarn Community is hosted on Circle, a platform designed for private membership communities. The IOS mobile app is optional, but if you’d like to easily access the Yay For Yarn Community on your iPhone or iPad, you can download the free Circle IOS app on your device and just login with your community account.

Will I get a million notifications?

Not unless you want to. 🙂  In your member account, you can customize exactly what types of notifications you want, and how often you would like to receive them.  You can select to get notifications in your browser, in the mobile app, and / or via email.  You can also choose which topics you want to receive notifications for, or if you want minimal notifications, you can opt for a weekly email digest that will keep you up-to-date on what’s happening in the community once a week.  (You can even opt out of all notifications if you prefer.)

This community is for you if...

  • You love to knit and / or crochet and want to connect with other crafters, but you’re sick of all the ads, distractions, and negativity on social media
  • You’d love to be able to ask other experienced crafters for personalized help when you get stuck with your project
  • You like special member perks, like behind-the-scenes peeks at what’s going on at Yay For Yarn, early access to new pattern releases, and exclusive discounts on patterns, courses, and merch

This community is NOT for you if...

  • You’re fully satisfied to knit / crochet alone, and don’t want to talk with others about your crafts or share tips and inspiration
  • You are already basically an expert in your craft, and never have a need to ask questions of others
  • You’re not interested in early access to new patterns, exclusive discounts, or getting to see what’s coming from Yay For Yarn
