Happy Thanksgiving Week. If you’re a Marly Bird fan then you already know that this means it’s Turkey Trot time. You still have a lot of opportunity to join in with the knit and crochet clues for this stitch-along, so join inn if you haven’t already. It’s a really fun way to spend the long weekend, crafting alongside the rest of the community. And in between stitches, you might want to take advantage of some of the Black Friday Craft sales and other hot deals happening this week and weekend.

Marly Bird Announcements
Before we dig into the Black Friday craft sales for knitters and crocheters, we have a few announcements. Turkey Trot (above) was the first one.
Marly Bird’s Black Friday Ravelry Store Sale
On Friday, November 26, 2021, all patterns in the Marly Bird Ravelry store will be 20% off. No coupon needed. Go grab the patterns you want while they’re discounted!
BiCrafty Bootcamp Update
Third, we have paused BiCrafty Bootcamp: Beginner Crochet Lessons for Knitters until the new year. If you’re a member, we hope you understand and take advantage of the break in whatever way feels best to you. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can join now and catch up on the lessons. There are seven lessons that will teach you so many basic crochet skills. Get going on them now (they’re free) and you’ll be all set to join us in the new year.
I’d Be Grateful If You Take Advanatage of Creativebug’s November Deal
Finally, and this kicks off our Black Friday craft sales announcements, I’d love for you to sign up for a Creativebug membership entirely for free. If you sign up before the end of the month, you get 60 days of free art and craft classes, including my crochet and knitting classes. Plus you get all kinds of inspirational videos, lessons, and more. If you don’t like it, cancel before the 60 days, and you’ll never pay anything.
And yet, because I’m an affiliate, it helps me out a lot when you sign up. I’m super grateful for many things this Thanksgiving, of course. And this community where we do our best to help each other with win-win situations is one of them. I really think this is a win-win.
Is Black Friday a Thing This Year?
Things have shifted a bit in pandemic times. Most big stores aren’t doing those old “just Friday” sales that draw huge crowds. Instead, big and small shops offer seasonal sales throughout the week and even throughout the season. However, there’s still a huge push with great deals this Thanksgiving weekend.
Black Friday craft sales, which usually last all weekend long, give you huge discounts on yarn, project bags, and so much more. Small Business Saturday is a chance to support all of your local indie dyers, stitchers, and designers while getting a discount on the stuff you love. CyberMonday carries the whole thing through the weekend.
Oh, and don’t forget Giving Tuesday, which is your chance to donate to charity. Many people love to knit and crochet for charity, so that’s always something to consider at this time of year.
Best Black Friday Craft and Yarn Sales
Here are the Black Friday craft sales or Thanksgiving week deals that we know about.
I have a lot of different knitting needles. However, if price is no object, I always recommend Signature’s. They work so smoothly. They offer a stiletto tip that is unique from any other on the market. They’re great knitting needles. (And, of course, they sell other great stuff as well.) They’re having a 12% off holiday sale, so now is the time to get those nice needles for yourself!
Yarnspirations Black Friday Deals
Yarnspirations has an email sign-up list for all of their sales announcements. Their 2022 Black Friday craft and yarn sale is as state above: If you spend $70 or more, you’ll receive 20% off. However, add juts another $30 and spend over $100 and they bump your savings up to 30%.
