SIG'NITS - a brand-new way to put your signature on hand-knits!

Knitters love to put a personal touch on their projects - especially when it's a gift for someone special. Until now, embroidered labels were the only choice . . .

Now! There are sig'nits



What are sig'nits?
sig’nits are beads that you can knit into your project to identify creations as your own

“That baby afghan was definitely knit by Aunt Mary – she loves ladybugs and ALWAYS knits a little ladybug into her work for good luck!”

“Kathleen, you must have knit that sweater. I see the little "K" stitched into your sleeve!"

- Select a symbol to use as your personal “brand”
- Meaningful to each person: an initial, favorite animal or character
- Every time you knit or crochet something, you trademark it with your personal sig’nit.

How do sig’nits work?
- sig’nits are high quality die-cast beads made from durable pewter
- Will not rust or tarnish, long-lasting for the life of your project. Made in USA, they are safe and lead-compliant
- sig’nits are pre-drilled with a hole large enough to pull a strand of yarn, up to heavy worsted weight, through the bead using the “bead-it!” method
- For heavier weight yarn, sig’nits can be inserted by dividing fibers, instructions are included
- Each kit has enough beads for six projects, along with a fine gauge crochet hook and instructions

Visit the YBD boutique today to select from the many Sig'nits we have to choose from.

Stocking Stuffers...

JUL Designs: Pedestal Buttons are improvisational.

These closures require no commitment, no sewing and no pre-planned button holes. Instead, pedestal buttons are flexible components that can transform garments!

We carry a wide selection of colors to enhance any garment. The images below show you a sampling of the designs and patterns (by Andrea Marquis) available at the YBD boutique.


JUL Designs work directly with clothing and bag designers to develop integral bag jewelry and accessory designs in unconventional materials. Many JUL metal designs are created by Laura Bellows(designer, founder and principal owner of JUL) in wax, cast by hand in silver, and later reproduced in US casting studios in non-precious metals.
Other designs are generated in conjunction with Balinese co-designer Agus Astradhi (designer and co-owner of JUL) and made by hand in Bali.

Pattern: Infinity Scarf designed by Andrea Marquis

Pattern: Passionvine Shrug designed by Andrea Marquis

Pattern: Cobblestone Neckwarmer designed by Andrea Marquis

Pattern: Rivulet designed by Andrea Marquis

To use Pedestal Button, unscrew the backing and remove the back disk (on the screw mechanism shank), work the shank gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the back disk of leather, smooth side out, over the screw shank on the inside of knitwear. Screw in the backing with your fingers to secure.
