Loved Everything about Craftvent 2017! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
What's not to love about Craftvent - easy but interesting pattern, beautiful colors, luscious yarn, goodies every day felt like a kid again!, and a great community to share the experience. In fact, when I saw how one member added color to her border, I just had to try it. Sure, I can learn to do intarsia in the middle of lace with only 6 months of knitting experience! ha ha! The shawl turned out beautifully! And the best part is that every time I look at it, I'm reminded of all the wonderful holiday activities I did with family and friends. It's like my memories are knit right into the shawl. It sounds like JBW is thinking about changing it up a bit next year. I have complete faith that whatever they come up with will be fabulous. I am absolutely doing it again next year!

Disappointed!!!! 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
I purchased two Craftvent Calendars, one for me and one for my daughter who lives on the east coast. We were excited to work this project together. I ran out of yarn on two of the sections. I emailed and called after running out the first time. My call was returned on December 13 was told a booster pack of yarn would be sent, which I would receive by the end of the week. Because I expressed displeasure at the cost of the calendar with the issue of yarn shortage, I was told a 15% coupon would be included with the booster pack. I spent $15 to purchase additional yarn when the weekend AND no booster pack arrived. I finally received the booster pack after Christmas, on December 26, no 15% off coupon included. Jimmy Beans Wool was unapologetic about the situation. With the numerous snafus with this product, I expected a partial refund of the cost or a gift card, but nothing. In addition, for people who work full time, this project is ambitious to complete by Christmas to wear for the holiday season. Larger needles and a heavier weight yarn would be more doable. I finished the project January 19.

Lovely Idea and... 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
So excited when my box arrived. Love the packaging, not sure what I'm going to do with the box when I am done. Would love to be able to ship it back for a refill next year at a lower price. Yarn is lovely, and the directions have been clear enough that I can knit and watch TV at the same time. I have just finished all but three rows of section two, and have run out of the yarn with which I was provided. Fortunately, I have similar colors in my stash with which to supplement as I go along since I know I will be in a position of needing to add and adapt as I go along. The goodies are duplicates of what I already have, however, they are perfect to put in a notions bag and keep in my glove compartment for knitting emergencies when I'm out and about. Not sure if I will do this again next year, but I am having fun now.

Craftvent Calendar 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I loved my calendar. I didn't get it until Christmas but didn't care that I ordered it late. I haven't finished yet but have enjoyed so far. Only issue is that my Jimmy Beans Tape Measure was broken when I was bummed about.

Wonderful Holiday Treat! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love my calendar. I looked forward every day to opening the little boxes and to see my surprise for that day. Felt like a little kid again. Loved the pattern and the MKAL that came with it, too.

Craftcent Calendar- Cozy Fire 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Received my craftvent calendar box today. So excited to get started, but was only given 1 of my needles in the day 3 box. It just burst my bubble. Everything else in the calendar is great, colors of yarns are beautiful. For what you get it seems a little pricey though. Hoping I can get my needle situation fixed quickly because I can't wait to get started on the project.

Love the box 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I received my sugarplum advent calendar and I am really excited to start the shawl. The box it comes in is beautiful and the yarn it includes is high Is high quality. My only issue was that the pattern was hard to find, however customer service was excellent about emailing it to me right away! All in all it’s a great product, however it is a tad bit pricey for the contents it includes.

Loved the Craftvent. I had a good time making this small shawl/scarf. I have not blocked it yet because I am out of town.
