Alpacas!!
OK, alpaca yarn... and fluff!
Alpacas Raised & Yarn Milled in California!
Trunk Show Oct 24th - 27th
We will have multiple weights of locally raised and locally milled alpaca yarns. These amazingly yummy, undyed yarns are so soft and lovely!! We will also have fiber for spinning.
We are so excited to have Julie Roy here on Wed, October 24th, at 6:00 pm for a lecture. Julie will tell stories about raising alpaca, share knitting and weaving techniques to ensure success with alpaca fiber, and share tons of photos of the adorable critters! The lecture is free but we would appreciate your signing up in advance as space is limited.
Stitches SoCal!
A very heartfelt "Thank you!" to Briana for creating this ad and so much more! If you need graphic design work we would be more than happy to get you in touch with Briana.
We are super excited, and only slightly terrified, to have our very first booth at Stitches!
Stitches is an amazing event with a huge market place, tons of classes, free demos, fashion shows, PJ parties, and knitters/crocheters everywhere!! If you have never attended one of these events this is the time! This is Stitches very first SoCal event.
We will have tons of new yarn! You can find Manos' Serpentina, Franca, Milo, and Serena for the first time! We will have the anniversary color, Cincuenta, in every base. We have loads of Wooladdicts and some Theodora's Pearls coming in. There will be tons of kits to choose from!
Stop in and pick up a $3.00 off coupon for market place tickets.
