Where Creativity Is American Made...
6.12.19 -- I am still spinning from the trade show!
|Awesome experience as always, took some great classes - connected with some awesome yarnies & other shop owners!
Biggest take-aways were Emma's new mohair dyed to compliment her yarns - we have some great pattern ideas for these yarns!
We brought back some Toft alpaca pompoms - read their story no alpacas are killed for these pelts; also in our bags were some of Bonnie Bishoff stick pins.
Alexandra's sock blanks - also made an impression on us - the yarn is knit on a machine (doubled) and then dyed. You start unraveling the yarn and knit 2 socks at a time which will come out perfectly identical! They are getting scarfed up - No worries about the crimp from the knitting machine these hardly show and will come out once the socks are blocked..... blocked you say - I never block my socks! (or anything for that matter) here is a great article as to WHY you should block your finished items.
Stop in on Sunday during our party to check out all the new goodies! Craft Fair, mini Fiber Fest, Meet & Greet Fishnet Crochet Guild and try a hand at weaving with our Make-it Take-it woven tile project.
