On Saturday, October 12 from 10am until 4pm, Sharon Lewis will be setting up shop in our knitting parlor! Sharon is one of my favorite yarn reps, and I’d love for you to meet her. Forbidden Fibers and Zen Yarn Garden will be featured (cash & carry!) as well as a variety of notions from Bryson Distributing.
Forbidden Fiber Co. is a small but growing every day indie dyer originally based in California and now based in Brighton, TN. LeeAnn’s mantra is to provide “an exquisite color experience.” Her mission statement is: “to create beautiful colors in scrumptious yarns and fibers for the world to enjoy.” I would say, “well done, girlfriend, mission accomplished!” These yarns are delicious! [and home of the (most local) Harry Potter Yarn Club!] You’ll also have the opportunity to reserve your “12 Days of Harry Potter,Year One” box, as well as Forbidden Fiber’s “2019 Advent Calendar: Christmas Movies”. (These are limited, so it is first come-first served!)
Zen Yarn Garden is the art of a husband and wife team, Roxanne and Neville, based in Ontario, Canada. To paraphrase their comments … they take pride in providing the most luxurious fibers available for their yarns and dyeing them in a range of beautiful semi-solid, one-of-a-kind and splatter colourways. We have had a smattering of Zen in the shop off and on for years, this is your chance to dig deeper! “Create something unique. Everyday.” Who can’t love that?
Sharon will also be bringing a curated selection of fun notions and gadgets that Bryson Distributing has to offer (and which we all love). This won’t be cash & carry, but if you see something you like we can normally have it in the shop within the week, because Bryson is just that good!
Shop early for the best selection, as this will be a “cash & carry” event … meaning come prepared to purchase! You’ll be voting with your dollars to help us decide what we are bringing into the shop … and as always, we thank you for your support.
P.S. and yes, we’ll have cookies.
