Knit City and Yarn Tasting
Through the quiet and sometimes lonely winter its so great to have some additional yarny events start up locally, and the next one on the books is an online relaunch of Knit City! Slated for Feb 5th -7th it will include online classes and a great lineup of virtual trunk shows. We will be featuring another free online Yarn Tasting on Saturday Feb 6th at 9:30 and you can join us through a day-of link on this Marketplace Schedule.
We launched an online version of our fun Yarn Tasting event for the mid- January Fibre Love Affair event, and though it had some technical challenges, we got some great feedback that the yarn tasting is a fun, creative and educational way to showcase our favorite yarns and continue to build our yarny community.
Join us on Feb 6th to chat all things yarn! The Tasting is free of charge and whether or not you got your hands on a Yarn Tasting kit, we are sure to have fun. We are now sold out of our first batch of yarn tasting kits for the Feb 6th show, but if you missed getting yours we are currently taking a waitlist. You can add yourself to it via our online store and by Wed we will decide if we will indeed have more to offer.
Our Yarn Tasting consisted of four featured yarns and this round includes Uschitita, Wild West Dyeworks, Malabrigo and Estelle. I invite people to cast on and knit along while discussing the merits and specs of each of our featured yarn, as well as offering pattern choice options and showcasing garment samples for each. The yarns selected included a variety of weight and fibre contents to showcase the array of diversity to choose from when planning your next project. Although these events are always better in person, together we made an attempt to create a new opportunity for yarn lovers to connect from the comfort and safety of home. They are free of charge to join, can be viewed at your own convenience (are recorded and can be linked to afterwards).
Hope you can join us this coming Saturday!
