Join Live Online Chats with Some of Fiber's Most Exciting Creators
In this time of staying home and crafting, let’s take a minute to meet some of the very people that inspire us.
In collaboration with several other yarn shops, we will be taking part in one hour Zoom meetings with a host of well known designers and makers which gives us a chance to learn more about them.
While this isn’t a traditional class, it will be well worth your while to tune in!
There is a new procedure to purchase tickets for Fiberside Chats. Click on the artist and you will be redirected to Longmont Yarn Shop. Find Bella Filati on the menu and add to cart!
