It’s Going To Be One BIG PARTY!!!

 

We can’t believe the Plucky 10th Anniversary Celebration starts this Friday, October 27th!!!

We are so excited as we count down the days to when we will see so many of you. It is going to be one BIG party that includes knitting with mimosas, fashion shows, karaoke! This has been 10 years in the making!

 

The reserved spots may have sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still come! Even if you weren’t able to get a full entry as an official Shindigger, you can still book a room at the Amway Grand Plaza or drop by for lots of great free events (see full schedule of events for registered and non-registered guests HERE) including a mimosa bar;  coffee, tea & pastry buffet; and the Plucky Marketplace. Toss in all the favorite parts of the past few Shindigs and this year, we have no words other than One Big Party to describe what we have in store for you!

We hope you will allow us to share our love of what we do with the folks we do it for! And that’s YOU! Please join us as we celebrate 10 years of laughter, love, adventures in color, unruly hair, crazy dogs, and wonderful friendships!!

Without you, our dear Plucky friends, we would not have this beautiful community to celebrate, so whether you join us in person or in spirit, our 10th Anniversary Party promises to have fun for everyone!

Introducing Plucky Knitter’s 2017 Fall Collection: Coming Home

 

You’re Invited to a Very Special Update!

It seems like just yesterday. It was a hot day in June, I was standing in my kitchen over boiling pots filled with yarn, then, I blinked, and a decade went by! How did that happen?!  We’re not only celebrating Plucky’s 10th Anniversary, but, also…drum roll, please…our 2017 Fall Collection: Coming Home!

Fall has finally arrived in Michigan, and, with it, I’m so excited to share our latest collection! Coming Home will give you a glimpse into our part of the world, Western Michigan. All of the photography for the collection took place here, in and around our hometown. Our side of the state is known for its woodlands, lakes and rivers, and, at this time of year it absolutely shines! Inspiration is truly in abundance, from weathered buildings filled to the brim with character to the natural beauty of the landscapes that surround us.  We hope you are as excited for this peek into our part of the world as we are in providing you with a little tour!

 

 

Traditionally, our collections have been collaborative ones and this one is no different. Hayley provided invaluable support throughout this project, and, of course, our fellow Michigander and pal, Jill Zielinski has once again joined us in contributing designs.  In addition, this year, I am so proud to include Michele Wang as a part of the creative team!  My deepest thanks to all of you lovely ladies!

 

 

From the perfect Fall accessories, to fabulous sweaters that will become staples in your wardrobe, this collection has something for everyone!  Without further ado, we are absolutely delighted to present you with 13 new designs! So, grab your coffee, tea, or mulled cider (I’ll be having a mimosa!) and join in Coming Home with Plucky.

 

 

And, how’s this for exciting?!  There will be a blog update centered around the collection on Friday at Noon EDT, with a second part on Sunday at 8 PM EDT!

 

 

These types of updates can be especially fast moving, but, of course, we want to help as many as we can! Therefore, we will be starting a Collection NO CHAT Thread where you can post your questions, and, Hayley and I will answer. There will absolutely still be the regular Update Chatter Thread where we can talk about all things updates, this thread will just be for the Collection Update this weekend.

 

 

We have put together a smashing list of colors and bases for this special update, but, we wanted you to have time to view the collection and let us know what your wishes are! The WISHLIST Thread will be reviewed before EACH update time!

It’s Fall QPP Part 2!!!

 

It’s Fall QPP Time, Part 2!!!

It’s time for the re-release of the Fall QPP and this time, for a little extra fun, the color(s) of the month for October will be added to the mix. To us, this QPP embodies all things Fall, and of course, as with other QPP’s, each color is designed to mix and match with other colors in the collection – like Garanimals (ha!!) for knitting and crocheting!  And since you gave them so much love last time, we are pleased to include Time Change, Crisps & Crumbles, Needle in a Haystack, and Bonfire Season again!!

Please note: If you have your heart set on Fall QPP colors in the quantities you want, this is the time. While there may be a few QPP colors in the marketplace at the Shindig, we have not dyed across the colors and bases for the QPP like we did last year for the Glamping with Plucky event.
