2021 Advent Calendar


Regular price £400.00

Meticulous Ink & A Yarn Story present our first ever joint Advent Calendar!

Carmen and I have become good friends over the years we’ve been shop neighbours and it felt like high time we created something spectacular together. We are both deeply passionate about the power of making with our hands and love bringing that joy to others through our businesses.

What better way to celebrate all the things we love about both our shops than to put the ultimate stationery and yarn lovers Advent Calendar together? So that is just what we’ve done!

This isn’t just any old advent calendar simply filled with products from our shelves, this project was all about creating beautiful bespoke items to delight. More than half of the 25 items in the advent calendar are brand new items designed and created just for the advent calendar! Whether you’re a calligraphy expert or novice, a knitting master or never tried it - we think you’ll love what you find wrapped in these little packages. 

Each calendar will be lovingly wrapped up and shipped out to you late November to arrive with you by 1st December 2021. Quantities are limited and many of the items we’ve created won’t be available anywhere else, they are Advent Calendar exclusives! 

How about a Supersized Advent Calendar - you can upgrade your Advent Calendar to include an annual membership to the Meticulous Ink Hand Lettering Club which is filled with fun challenges, prompts, calligraphy tips and typography info from Athena and her team, PLUS a "Learn to Knit in the Round" virtual knitting class hosted by A Yarn Story owner Carmen Schmidt. A £125 value that will bring you further joy all year!

What to expect in the Advent calendar?

You will receive 25 individually wrapped items with about a third dedicated to stationery, a third dedicated to yarn and another third are true collaborations. 

There is a bonus item created especially that we think will make you smile.

No ‘sample’ sizes to be found here, just full size - beautifully bespoke items. 

Free Shipping within the UK. International orders will be sent fully Tracked & Signed.
