Crafticorn Makeover Changes

Crafticorn Makeover Changes


As you may have read over on our News page, that Crafticorn is getting some big changes. Some changes have already started to happen, and the main reason for it is to simplify. Facebook has been deactivated, Crafticorn Ravelry group page is closing down September 30th, and there will be very few giveaways now. Unfortunately I can’t keep up with everything, and Facebook and Ravelry wasn’t really getting used. I deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may caused, but there are still ways to get a hold of me! Send me a message here on the Crafticorn website, Instagram, as well as YouTube, message me on my personal Ravelry account, and you can always message me on Etsy.

 

Let’s talk about the changes that are going to be happening with Crafticorn. Crafticorn is now going to be LGBTQ+ based, meaning most items in the shop are going to be Pride related only. There will be some one of a kind items in the shop, including yarn, fiber, stitch markers, pins, key chains, and dishes. Almost all items in the shop will be Pride only items. Certain bases are going to be no longer available in the shop, limiting the amount of bases I offer. I will also be working on getting cheaper shipping for within Canada. Us and International shipping prices are no where near as expensive. Other changes will include no more goody bags with orders, cutting down the cost to ship as well as the weight. Crafticorn pricing will stay the same for now, until I am off Etsy.

 

As part of the changes, there is going to be a HUGE sale starting October 1st at 12:00 am EST time, up to 30% off in shop! Grab what you want now before it’s too late! This also includes Mystery Grab Bags that have just been recently added. Anything in the shop that isn’t discounted will be staying. Some of the items you will be able to see on sale includes; stitch markers, yarn, fiber, resin items, pins, key chains, basically everything that isn’t Pride related. Sales will not be happening as often, they will happen on important LGBTQ+ dates. Coupon codes will now be given to newsletter subscribers only, instead of sales. I may still offer one day Flash Sales, so keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram, If you don’t have Instagram, there is Instagram here on the site.


I would just like to thank everyone who supports me and continues to support Crafticorn. It means the world to me to have so much love and support. I wish I could thank every single one of you individually and give you all hugs! You have all helped me to grow not only in my business but as a person as well.

Wanted to also mention that there will be a price change on yarn and fiber, due to the cost of Etsy. Price changes will only be on Etsy, hope to be selling on here soon and prices will go back down.

It’s finally here! I am so behind on this update going live, due to many health set backs along the way.

My LGBTQ+ Story

I am a Transgender male myself, I identify as FTM (Female to Male) and use He/Him pronouns. I found myself just over 2 years now, and am waiting to physically transition. If you watch my podcast, or follow me on Instagram then you probably already know.   I am waiting patiently to go on HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) which I will then be taking Testosterone. I deal with a lot of dysphoria on a daily bases. Binders are not something I can wear on a daily bases, I wish I could though. I can only wear it for a short period of time, due to an old injury as a child to my ribs. Going out in public is super uncomfortable at times, and don’t even get me started on public washrooms lol! But as I have DILLIGAF (Does it look like I give a F***) tattooed on my hand I honor that and live by it as much as I can. Like I try to tell myself and others, you should only care what you think about yourself not others. Live to be who you truly are, and no other.

My Family has yet to figure out or know that I am Transgender, and I’m hoping I’ll work up the courage this year. I grew up in a anti-LGBTQ house hold, very strict Christian family. I came out to my dad when i was 14 as Bisexual, and I got told it wasn’t a real thing and that I can’t like the same gender. More then 13 years later I finally found my true self regardless of what they think. This month my partner and I are hoping to come out to our child. It may be a tough change for them, but sometimes you just can’t lie about who you truly are anymore.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who supports me, and continues to support me through everything I do. It honestly means the world to me, I don’t have a very supportive family, so having a fiber community is everything to me. Please be extra kind this month, not just to LGBTQ+ members but anyone who is also an ally or friend. June is Pride month, which means Love is Love. So share the love to others this month, regardless of their gender, sexuality or race. But please remember to use proper pronouns and preferred names to others.

In honor of Pride Month, let’s come out together! If you come out this month, use #crafticorncomingout
