This and That
We've got a little bit of everything in this email, classes, events, news, yarn goodness, festival planning and more! I know it's still summer, but fall is slowly approaching and with that comes festivals, more classes and new yarns! We have received our shipment of fall yarns from Plymouth Yarn, and you will notice that texture is the unifying theme this year! There is the Arequipa line of yarns, Worsted, Fur and Aventura, as well as the Plymouth Select Textura. More fall yarns will be rolling in soon, so keep an eye on the website or any of our various social media channels.
We just put a poll up on Ravelry to gather some information about a possible day trip to Rhinebeck this October, to attend the NY State Sheep and Wool Festival. We would be interested in feedback from you about whether or not you might be interested in going and if so, what mode of transportation (somewhat dependent on attendance) would you be interested in. You can follow the above link, or email us about your interest.
I also started another topic on Ravelry about Madelinetosh yarn. As many of you may already know, we recently received our first shipment of Madelinetosh yarn and it is selling fast! I am going to be putting in another order in the next week or two and I wanted to find out if anyone has any requests or special orders that they would like me to add to the order. Re-orders take somewhere between 10-14 weeks to arrive, so that means that the yarn won't be arriving until October/November. The good news is that each order is dyed to order, so if there is a particular colorway that you have been looking for, we will be able to get it for you, you’ll just have to be patient for it’s arrival! Here is a link to their Colorways for your perusal. You can reply to the Ravelry thread with requests/special orders (let me know if it is a request or special order - special orders we will specifically set aside for you when they arrive), or PM me on Ravelry, or send me an email.
I have listed a new class, which you will see below, it is an Intro to Dyeing Class with Master Dyer Amy Rooney of Vivid Fiber Arts. This is the only new class listed at this time, but we have some knitting and crochet classes in the works for late summer/early fall, stay tuned! Also if you have suggestions for classes that you would like to see us offer, or teachers you would like us to bring in, please let us know!
I think that covers most of the questions that I have for you, so let's get on with some of the other fun news and events!
