Weaving Workshop a Big Success! We had an amazing four days learning weaving techniques and "teachable
moments" with Deborah Jarchow. Lots of laughter and great times! All our
seats were filled, so we're scheduling another workshop in the Spring with a
new batch of classes!
(Below: Deborah, seated center, teaches during Day 1 of the workshop.)
Spotlight on Exclusive Yarns from Rhichard Devrieze!
Welcome Luxe, Thede, and Sirocco to our Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze collection!
Luxe a Fingering Weight SW Merino blended with Silk and, be still my heart, Cashmere! Yummy!
Thede is a great sock yarn that's SW Merino and Nylon. Soft and durable.
Sirocco is our newest DK from Rhichard that's 100% SW Merino. Squishy and beautiful.
Round Mountain Fibers in Florida!
We are so excited to be one of 50 shops to carry Round Mountain Fibers. The current collection is based on North American Birds in SW Merino. Worked by themselves; paired with coordinating colors; or 4 skein collections: 3 skeins graduated greys and one skein a pop of colors, these are wonderful to work into fun projects.
The reflection of the birds' plumage, display vibrant colors that work well together in nature and in the yarns! One customer is using two 4 skein collections for an awesome skirt! The possibilities are endless!
Another Florida Exclusive: MJ Yarns!
Jonathan brings us two fingering weight yarns - both with either a variegated or a spiral pattern. With names like Eye of Frog, Tongue of Bat, Scale of Dragon, they're spellbinding!
