Woolith Fair Yarn Crawl Soon!
The West Coast Knitters Guild’s annual Lower Mainland yarn crawl, Woolith Fair is now one short week away! With 22 fibre arts destinations opening their doors for yarn crawlers with new spring lines, special events and discounts, this is a great way to expand your yarny ‘hood by exploring parts unknown (or not recently visited)!
Woolith Fair is an event for yarn lovers and fibre artists from the Lower Mainland and beyond. Organized by the West Coast Knitters’ Guild, this three-day yarn crawl is designed to get you out and about, and visiting as many Local Yarn Stores (LYSs) and fibre-related businesses as possible! The event is open to everyone as you do not need to be a Guild Member to participate.
This year Baaad Anna’s will:
- Have extended store hours to open from 10am to 6pm all three days
- Offer 10% off ALL YARNS and FIBRE storewide!
- Host a trunk show by an amazing fibre artist that we first met on our first Baaadass BC Roadtrip: Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Arts all weekend long
- Offer a Circular Weaving class (no weaving experience necessary!)
- Sarah Elizabeth will offer a free of charge lecture on breed and fibre choices at 1pm on Sunday
- Sign up for our new Knit Fast, Die Warm newsletter and you will be entered to win a skein of an exclusive Wollmeise colourway!
Here’s a sneak peek of some of Sarah Elizabeth‘s amazing Ecowash colourways…
We first met Sarah on day one of our premier beautiful British Columbia baaadass roadtrip in Castlegar when she was the chair of the Selkirk Weavers and Spinners Guild. At that time we came home with a trunkful of her gorgeous hand-carded spinning batts. We have crossed paths with her a number of times since and she has always amazed us with her fibery talents.
She has also produced a line of this eco wash hand painted solely in natural Indigo dyes; what she calls the dye that changed the world…
And as a special presentation for the Woolith Fair weekend, Sarah Elizabeth will also be hosting a pretty awesome Circular Weaving workshop. With no previous weaving experience necessary, this is a great way to get hands on a fibre art you may have not yet played with!
