Ladybug Fibers Trunk Show starts tomorrow!

We are so happy to be hosting another Trunk Show starting tomorrow night. We will be hosting the popular Etsy group, Ladybug Fibers.

Unlike many hand dyers, Meg and Sheri dye using several different methods. Variegated to be sure, of course kettle dyed but they also create the most gorgeous Self-Striped Yarns.

After discovering Yarntini on Etsy we were the first Knitting Boutique in the country to feature her yarn.

I believe Ladybug Fibers will be the next greatest Indie dyer in the market. This is your chance to touch it, feel it and if you are a yarn sniffer like me, smell it. Their gorgeous color work is created on three different bases. From Superwash Merino blends to deliciously soft cashmere, you'll have the best yarn at your fingertips and on your needles.

No matter what your pleasure, you'll be sure to find a fiber, and color way that suits you. Available starting tomorrow December 2nd, 2011 for a limited engagement at the "Hippest' Yarn boutique around. As always we will ship anywhere in the country. Just give us a call at 916.714.7719, we can even wind it for you.

November's Jewels

We've received lots of inquires about the sweater of the month for November. November's project is made out of slightly thick thin yarn, from the bottom up with great fitting tips, and a neckline that will be flattering on just about anyone.

With a full range of sizes this is sure to fit all size bodies. It doesn't take a ton of yarn, nor is the yarn overly expensive. To me, it's a perfect fit..., for a perfect pattern and a great yarn.
We will be offering this class on Friday nights, or if it works for you, you can learn this in one of our All Skills Classes.

We just received a restock of this yarn today, and we are open until 8pm so come in while we have plenty of selections. Or call us at 916.714.7719 and we can ship to you.
