What’s New for Summer 2016?

What to do with all those new fiber blends? From cottons to linens to wools, blends and synthetics. We’d all like to know the best way to handle them and exactly what to make with them.

One week each month we will concentrate on one fiber, look at its characteristics, show you the new (and some old-but not elderly –-uh-hem) yarns with that fiber. Free patterns, models to tantalize and inspire.  Yarns of that fiber will be 10% off that week. Tentative schedule:

Fiber Weeks:
May      Week of 17th – Cottons
June      Week of 14th - Linens
July        Week of 12th – Baby Yarns
August  Week of 16th - Alpacas
