Whats Happening  in the Studio

Yarn Shop & Studio Hours for November : Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday    9:30am to 6:00pm (all other days by appointment)

There is lots of felting, knitting, rug hooking, punching, weaving and wool applique happening in the Studio, everyone is welcome to stop by and see what's new.

Back in the shop is the Rigid 16" Sample It Loom. Whether you are learning to weave for the first time, want to learn new techniques or sample your wonderful yarns, this loom is fun and easy to use. Just add yarn! The 40cm (16") weaving width allows you to sample all your favourite rigid heddle patterns, textures and colours. I have the 15DPI reed in stock and will be warping this loom soon to show how easy it is to create beautiful woven fabric.

New Silk & Merino Fibres from Ashford are in the Studio and waiting to be spun or felted.  They are beautiful. $30.00 for 100g bag or 25g for $6.00.

Avocado, Flamingo, Citrus, Berries and Skyscape and I Just love Sunset for felting and making those wonderfully soft nuno scarfs.

 

Lots of new wool applique patterns are in the shop along with some new Dorr solids and plaid fabric. I have ready to dye natural and sparkle wool fabric for those who like to dye their own along with all the Jaquard Acid Dyes. The studio is  stocked with  backings for hooking and punching.  Traditional linen (60"), warp cloth, monks cloth and weavers cloth ( white and natural).

Saltwater Mittens and the new Saltwater Classic Book are back in stock along with lots of Briggs & Litttle yarns.
