YARN IS OUR PASSION

Deep Winter 2015 - Taking our Show on the Road!

We are excited to announce that in 2015 we’re taking our show on the road!

We’ll be packing up a U-Haul van and heading to Madison, Wisconsin in February and Pittsburgh, PA in March.  We’re featuring our favorite yarn brands including The Uncommon Thread, Rosy Green Wool, Hedgehog Fibres, Eden Cottage Yarns, Holst Garn, Woolfolk, and more.  

Along with beautiful yarn, we’ll be offering inspirational collections and patterns from some of our favorite designers including Lori Versaci, Melanie Berg and Joji Lacotelli among others.  We’ll have samples of popular Ravelry patterns knit up so you can see the beautiful accessories and garments you can create with our yarn.

Please come find us at one of the events below! We’d love to meet you and show you our yarn!
