Indie shopping & fun with fiber friends — from WHEREVER YOU ARE!
Thursday, Friday & Saturday
October 15-17, 2020
There’s no doubt 2020 has been rough on all of us. Stuck at home through the pandemic? Finding yourself working triple time? Overwhelmed with juggling kids and finding time for yourself?
However you’ve been spending these last few months, we can all agree we need connection and comfort now more than ever. So let’s dive into something familiar and fun – the Indie Untangled Trunk Show from the safety of our own homes!
This year, the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show is going virtual. In the past, we were limited by space, time and cost. But now, no matter where you are or what your schedule is like, you can gather with us and our vendors this October in an interactive, online space.
So how will it work?
Once you’re registered, you can log in to a special section of the Indie Untangled website during the show. From there, you can browse virtual vendor booths with video introductions and tours, photo galleries, and access to special event products and discounts. Join interactive shopping sessions through Zoom and pop into a virtual lounge where you can connect with your fiber friends – both old and new.
You’ll also be able to preorder sample boxes that will let you feel and squish our vendors’ Superwash and rustic yarns before you buy it online, purchase Indie Untangled tote bags and swag, and register to attend fun events, including interactive chats with guest designers.
Additionally, because we know this year in particular has been economically challenging for many people, we’re partnering with one of our generous sponsors, Scratch Supply Co., to provide financial assistance to six members of our fiber community. Scholarship applications are available here.
Zoom Crafternoons and Craft Nights With Guest Designers
We’ve put together a fantastic lineup of knitting and crochet designers, including two design teams, who will join us for interactive sessions on Zoom! Lisa Chamoff, the creator of Indie Untangled and a longtime journalist, will interview each guest and then take questions from the audience. Some designers will also share some of their favorite techniques and tips.
Sessions with a single designer are priced at $20 and design team sessions are $30. All registered participants will receive a PDF pattern, or coupon code to redeem for a pattern, from the designer for the session purchased. Your admission to these events supports the work of these talented designers.
Scratch Supply Co. is an inclusive and welcoming local yarn shop in Lebanon, New Hampshire. Owners Jessica, Karen and Travis are fiber enthusiasts who seek out and showcase indie, women, POC/BIPOC, queer and otherwise underrepresented dyers and makers.
