As the holidays approach, holiday sales are something everyone looks forward to. I will not be holding a Black Friday sale – the ethos of Black Friday doesn’t fit with my values as a business around sustainability. I don’t want you to buy my patterns just because they’re on sale. However, I will be participating in the Fasten Off Yarnalong again this year.
The yarnalong runs from November 30th through December 31st. It will take place entirely off Ravelry, as Ravelry has still not fully fixed their accessibility issues and doesn’t seem to have any intention of doing so. There are several ways to participate – you can join the Discord server for the event, or participate on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #FastenOffYAL. You can find all the details on the Fasten Off website.
As part of the event all individual patterns in my shop are 25% off with code FO2021 from November 30th – December 6th. The code is good for my patterns on Payhip, Etsy, and yes, Ravelry – I don’t want to penalize anyone for using Ravelry, but I also want to support an event in which everyone can participate.
A word on accessibilty of my patterns:
While I don’t yet offer screen reader or low vision accessible versions of my patterns, I have been working to make my patterns more accessible. My new patterns going forward use symbols or grayscale in charts for color blind accessibility, include both charts and written instructions in most cases, and limit the use of abbreviations. If you have any questions about my patterns, please reach out using the contact form or email me at email@example.com.
