How It Works
Welcome to Stashalong!
Our platform make stashing, swapping, and selling yarn easy and fun. Explore stashes from other knitters and crochters in your area or worldwide, search for the perfect sock yarn, or locate a yarn you've been trying to find to complete your project. Here's how it works:
Create Your Profile
The first step in using stashalong is to create your user profile. First, create an account on the website. Your bio tells other stashalong users a little more about you. Here's what someone sees when they navigate to your profile – your for-sale and for-trade stash listings, your bio, plus any reviews you've gotten from previous trades and sales.
Create a Listing
Once your profile is set up, it's easy to create listings for your yarn! Simply click the Post a new listing button on the top right of every page.
Fill out the form with all the info about your yarn, including any notes about pets, allergies, storage methods, or whether the yarn is caked or hanked. Anything you'd want to know should be disclosed here – how many skeins in the lot, what dye lot, or what colorway. Name the yarn whatever you like and upload a photo.
Click Publish Listing and see it appear on your profile page (and in searches)! Now, you're ready to sell your yarns!
Search for Stash
