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!
In this Fiberside Chat Sarah will give us a sneak peek of her debut collection for Harrisville Designs, slated to release at the end of October. It takes a village to make a design collection, combining the skills of knitters, designers, technical specialists, photographers, models and many more; and in the case of Harrisville Designs it takes a literal village to make the yarn as well.
Sarah will share a little of the history of the mill and its modern operations and tell us about the yarn they make, ranging from the heirloom-quality Highland and Shetland lines they started 50 years ago to their newest and most contemporary-looking yarns, Daylights and Nightshades, made with American-raised Cormo wool. We’ll learn about the running of a mill and the building of the extraordinary 64-color palette and then take a look behind the scenes at the making of this latest pattern collection.
Looking to add a little color to your knitting?! Little colors (aka mini-skeins) are an obsession for designer Lisa K. Ross of Paper Daisy Creations. Learn how to choose colors for your next project and arrange the yarns you already have. Experience simple techniques that can cut minutes (or hours) off your project time by carrying yarn up the sides and weaving in ends as you go. See the big reveal for the Just Beachy MKAL wrap and learn more about upcoming designs.
