Special Guests


Jeane deCoster & Brooke Sinnes
April 18, 2021 - 4pm


Under the Covers at 2 Dye Studios: Sincere Sheep & Elemental Affects

Brooke and Jeane have been working together separately for over 10 years. Brooke's specialty is natural dyes, while Jeane is focused on using the more commercial acid dyes.

It's not easy taking a small yarn and dye company from dream to reality. In the beginning, they operated as sounding boards for each other. Questions that would often be discussed would be things like .... How to produce quality hand-dyed yarn in larger quantities? How to be efficient without losing control of the process? How to stay cost effective? How to source the raw materials we needed from small producers? Where to get the yarn made? And, of course... What the heck are they doing?

In addition to their distinctly different dye backgrounds, Brooke and Jeane have loads of experience working with their fibers as they come straight off the sheep's back to buying in larger quantities from some of our remaining U.S. wool co-ops; not to mention to the knitty gritty of "how much does it cost?" 

Please join us as they share their journey with Fiberside Chats!

European Knitting Traditions

From the Scottish Lowlands where the unique Sanquhar gloves developed, to Sweden, home of Tvåändsstickning (twined knitting), Norway (Selbu mittens and the Setesdal Lusekofter), and England (the gansey), Estonia (gloves the Troi, and mittens), and Latvian mittens, these countries (and more) have wonderful knitting traditions that can inspire us today, and teach us techniques that have faded from main stream knitting knowledge. Beth has examined 19th century garments in European museums for a better understanding of our knitting history. She will show slides of garments and details of construction methods that can be used today in our contemporary knitting and will be happy to answer questions.

 This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Sunday, April 25th at 4:00pm Eastern, 3:00pm Central, 2:00pm Mountain, 1:00pm Pacific.

Universal Colorwork Across Crafts Colorwork is one of the exciting ways that makers can explore their self expression and creativity! Have you ever encountered a beautiful colorwork design, but the pattern is written for a craft different from your own? Join Vincent for an evening of fun introductions on how to access and expand your realm of colorwork by working with designs that’ve been created as either knitted OR crochet pattern. Knitters, grab your needles, and crocheters, bust out your hooks, because we hope all of your minds are ready to craft even more colorwork than before!

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Saturday, May 8th at 6:00pm Eastern, 5:00pm Central, 4:00pm Mountain, 3:00pm Pacific.

Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it.
