Ultimate Knitting Organizer - organized and easy-to-use!

$2,834

Welcome to the Kickstarter Campaign for the Ultimate Knitting Organizer!

Thanks to your input, and after consultation with manufacturing representatives, it appears that producing a physical planner is beyond the scope of a $2500 campaign. Therefore we are going to pivot! The Ultimate Knitting Organizer will be a SYSTEM rather than a physical binder. Customers will receive a downloadable PDF (or printed & 3-hole punched hard copy if they prefer) as well as video support and a dedicated FB group.

The Ultimate Knitting Organizer provides an offline system to track all the notes and thoughts that come to mind when you're away from the screen.

And stickers. Fun stickers.

The UKO is like a visual cue for living your best knitting life. You see it and think - AH! 

  • I am the memory keeper of my creativity
  • I am the heirloom maker in my family
  • I am the boss of my knitting and crochet life

We include pre-printed pages (plus the PDF so you can print extras for yourself.) They mirror the info you'd store on Ravelry... but be honest... how often do you forget to put everything in Ravelry? With the UKO, you have all your notes in one place, and you can update Ravelry at your convenience - without worrying that you'll forget. 

The UKO is both elegant and durable. You won't wear it out by filling it up! It features a removable notebook that you can take with you to the yarn shop; a beautiful pen and sticky notes for reminders and pattern alterations; and essential references like a needle size chart and yarn weight chart.

Our Kickstarter campaign will fund the initial production run of the Ultimate Knitting Organizer. We are committed to supporting women-owned and US-based suppliers and vendors whenever possible.

Risks and challenges

I prefer to work with US-based companies. However, even US-based companies use offshore vendors and suppliers. Sometimes supplies can be held up in customs or delayed at overseas factories. I will monitor any changes or delays in production and keep backers notified.
