If we’re being honest here, originally I wasn’t going to do a Christmas Advent Calendar 😂 I have never been particularly interested in advent calendars by any 1 Dyer and I am not interested in having 24 mini skeins for a Calendar. So I shy’d away from it. Although about a week before the Calgary Fibre Shindig I started thinking about what I wanted and didn’t want in an Advent Calendar. This was still in its infancy stages and I knew I didn’t want 24 mini skeins, I knew I didn’t want it all being yarn (bc my stash is CRAZY!!), I didn’t want it all Notions, and it would be nice to have a couple full skeins for projects. Then synchronicity happened. I had a few customers ask if I was doing an Advent Calendar! Then the planning commenced! I contacted 6 Indie Dyers to see if they would be interested in dyeing up some minis for the Calendar and every single one said yes! Then I figured out a palette that wasn’t traditional Christmas and everything came together!
So behold! Below is the Product Description of the Christmas Advent Calendars!
🎄Christmas Advent Calendars will be listed Nov 1 at Noon MST🎄 There will be 6 Calendars available and they will be priced at $329 each.

This years theme for the Prairie Dye Studio Christmas Advent Calendar is an Unconventional Christmas! No traditional Christmas colors here! Below is general info about what is included in the calendar! I understand not everyone wants a calendar full of yarn or a calendar full of notions so I wanted to give full disclosure of what’s included. So you can decide if it’s right for you!
