Uplift Make Along May Prize Sponsors

It’s month two of the Uplift Make Along, a three month event created to support and bring visibility to designers who aren’t “famous” (yet!) in the fiber arts design community.

Some wonderful makers have generously donated prizes for the event participants (which could include you) – so here they are!

Winners for these prizes will be selected from posts made during the month of May using the “Finished Object” topic tag in the Mighty Network for the Uplift Makealong as well as from FOs posted with the #UpliftMakeAlong hashtag on Instagram. A random number generator is used to select winners, and they are then matched with prizes that fit the craft they use and the location they are in.

Please check out the prize sponsors below – check out their shops too if you just can’t wait to see if you won the prize!

Lazy Sunday Yarns
wants to “add a little magic to your knitting!” with some fantastic yarn and stitch marker prizes!

Three skeins of hot pink speckled yarn lay on a white background Three stitch markers lay on a white background with small resin shapes in the background

First is a skein of “Persephone” on a 75/25 Merino/Nylon base with an adorable “self love spell jar” stitch marker. Kay let me pair these up as I chose and I couldn’t resist the thought of pairing Persephone with “self-love!”


Three red, brown, cream variegated skeins of yarn lie on a white background with a matching crystal in the upper right hand corner

Two crescent moon stitch markers with heart-accented lobster clasps lie on a white background with small resin pieces

This second set is “Ludo,” on a 75/25 Merino/Nylon base and a “resin cast moon” stitch marker. The moon seemed like a perfect match for a Labyrinth-inspired skein of yarn!

If you love these yarns and markers, be sure to check out Kay’s shop here: Lazy Sunday Yarns Etsy Shop and Instagram here: Lazy Sunday Yarns Instagram

Both these sets ship worldwide! Thank you so much, Kay!
