Y’ever buy yarn but realize it matches your skin and if you made something with it you’d just look naked? Yeah. We’re gonna do that on purpose.


The first Threadbare Craft-A-Long began during the winter of 2020 when many of us were isolating due to COVID. It was created to get us through that stressful situation with a little more making and lot more lolz.


Make any item using any crafting method. The only requirement is that the main material resemble your bare skin. The goal is for your FO to look a little nakey (or freckley, or hairy!) but we’re not gonna be Pantone matching here.

There will be zoom meetups, creative prompts, and prizes. Need some visual inspiration? Check out these projects from past TBCALs.


Share your projects on Instagram using the hashtag #ThreadBareCAL. You can share to your grid or stories, but I’ll be using grid posts to select winners for prizes and to share updates each week since they don't disappear.


I’ll be posting weekly Instagram check-ins and will also be hosting a few Zoom meetups so we can stay motivated and share our progress.
