Join us for a SweetGeorgia Spring Make-Along!

2020 SweetGeorgia Spring Make-Along

April showers bring May flowers and … spring fibres?! Okay, we’ll keep working on our rhyme, but before spring comes in full force, we think it’s perfect time to prepare for a new SweetGeorgia Spring Make-Along! The last days of winter are just the ticket to play with lightweight yarns and breezy projects as we make our way into warmer and brighter days ahead. Whether you knit, crochet, spin, or weave, we’d love to have you join us!


When does the Spring Make-Along start?
Start Date: March 17, 2020
End Date: April 24, 2020


How can I participate?
Join us over on the School of SweetGeorgia Community Forums (free to join), under the SweetGeorgia Spring Make-Along 2020 Club, for all the fun chats, stories, and tutorials. We’ll also be sharing successes across social media!

Virtual make-togethers: Here are the scheduled crafternoon meet-ups online:

  • Wednesday, March 18, starting at 10am PST
  • Tuesday, March 24, starting at 10am PST
  • Tuesday, March 31, starting at 10am PST
  • Tuesday, April 7, starting at 10am PST
  • Tuesday, April 14, starting at 10am PST

We also hope to continue online meet-ups following the end of our Spring Make-Along on April 24th. To be notified about any future virtual meet-up dates, please subscribe to our email newsletters where we will list the link to join (unlisted currently for added Zoom security).

I need yarn ideas!
Oh, yes! We’ve got lots of options to help you with there…


And maybe some pattern suggestions?
There are a ton of fingering-weight pattern ideas, including our new Spring with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 5 collection, but don’t feel limited there! We have a range of patterns using any yarn weight and style for you: https://sweetgeorgiayarns.com/product-category/patterns/
