GoT unclub

Winter is here!

We have waited for years for this, and have dreaded it at the same time. Why must great things come to an end? To celebrate the last season of Game of Thrones, and commemorate the stunning series finale, we have put together a two-part kit.

The first installment will be a skein of Game of Thrones-inspired yarn and a marvelous dumpling bag using licensed GoT fabric. The second installment will be a second gorgeous GoT-inspired skein of yarn, as well as stitch markers with images of key characters.

Order your limited-edition kits before they sell out!

First ship date is April 1.
Second ship date is May 1.

Start thinking Spring with these cheerful fabrics

The holidays were crazy, and if you live in the northern U.S., you’re probably getting hit with some back to back snow and chilly temperatures as these polar vortexes move through. Never fear! We have some awesome new bags that will bring a pop of spring into your life, and remind you that the cold and snow can’t last forever! We’re gearing up to really expand this year, and as part of that it’s our goal to bring as many unique and fun project bags into your life as possible. This first round was a limited production of each item, but have no fear! I plan to continue rolling these bags through the spring months. Grab one today and start day dreaming about warm days full of camping, wildlife, and bright colors all around.

Plus, don’t miss out on some awesome prices on clearance products. We’ve got a few select prints that we are retiring, available at a deep discount.

Exciting (life) news means a shop hiatus is coming up soon!!

Thank you to everyone who came by to say hello at Vogue Knitting Live in New York City! It was incredible to see so many people, and I had a blast.

KnitSpinQuilt is excited to have some box bags back in stock. These bags are fully lined in white or low-volume print fabrics, have a handle long enough to loop over your wrist or (my favorite) to attach to a clip and hang from another bag, and use long-pull zippers with broad blunt teeth, the better to not snag your yarn. Taxis have been out of stock for ages, but they’re baaaaaack!

There are also a variety of sock and shawl-sized drawstring bags: the manatees are a particular favorite, and are in stock as of this blog post with all three colors of tops!

There are also new rainbow llama stitch markers, as well as dainty enameled flowers and hearts. Do you love coffee? Tea? Wine? There are stitch markers so your knitting can drink with you (bonus: no stains!)

But!

There’s another announcement too: I am going to be out of the country for graduate school (doing archival research in England) starting on February 26th, and the shop will be closing while I am gone — which is until June 1, 2019. There’s just no way for my one-person operation to keep going while I’m spending all my time reading medieval manuscripts in England. 

This means that the last day to get your orders in is February 22! If there’s something you’ve been on the fence about, buy it before I leave!

Yarn and Project Bags from BaaBerry Farms

You might not know it where you are, but things are hopping in the middle of Nebraska at BaaBerry Farms. Debi, the owner and shepherdess is also the brains behind the shop, which primarily specializes in project bags and hand-dyed yarn.

Debi designs her project bags from a process of creating the ultimate bag. They are unique and highly functional. For example, her Uptown Bags are a medium-large wedge shaped bag that is fully lined and has interior pockets and wrist straps. They are sized generously for medium to larger projects, too! I have one and it quickly became one of my favorite bags. Debi also has an eye for fun and unusual fabrics!

Most of Debi’s yarns are mill spun from her flock and then hand dyed by her. She has also just launched a new line of worsted weight sock kits! Each kit includes a skein of yarn and a coordinating mini. These will make fun house socks! I have been working with her angora merino blend yarn and it is so soft and warm.

FiberCrafty is a marketplace with many more independent shops all specializing in supplying the fiber community. Do you follow us on Instagram? It’s a great way to see what’s new in our shops!

Shop owners – if you are looking for an easy to use, cost-effective place to host a shop front, take a look at FiberCrafty! We provide a lot of information in our FAQ and it just takes a few minutes to open a shop. Questions? Just hit the Contact Vendor button!

Meet the Witherbottoms

Lord Theodore Witherbottom of Rossmore was born to privilege. The standing of his family goes back many generations — more than the average person would even care to know. But, as nobility tends to do, they have every Lord, Lady and little one mapped out from the very beginning. The Witherbottoms’ money comes from transportation, from the earliest wagons to the more technologically forward air machines.

However, young Teddy didn’t find himself enamored with the mode of travel, but rather the history of the places to which he had traveled. As such, he studied archaeology at University instead of engineering. It was while traveling the world, uncovering priceless artifacts from ancient civilizations such as the Onyx Tablet and Sacred Shepherd’s Hook, that he met his true love, Lady Violet. They now live a life of intrigue at Rossmore Estates… but that is a story for another time.

Lord Theodore Witherbottom and his Aeronautical Machinations was the first installment of this fun new collection by Forbidden Fiber Co.! I honestly can’t tell you how I came up with the idea. It started with a collaboration for Stitches West 2018, where I was looking for fun fabric and somehow got it in my head that I wanted steampunk sheep. But I couldn’t find anything fun! So I asked my graphic designer, a dear friend of mine, to help me out! She really knocked it out of the park, and the first sheeppunk bags were made!

And then… somehow, I decided to name them. Because why not? And then… Lord Witherbottom needed a story. So I told it, at Stitches SoCal 2018. And then… his wife needed a story (which will be told at Stitches West 2019.) And each of the 12 (or so) characters will be getting a story, one by one. And, let me tell you, they have woven a web of intrigue so fun, even I can’t wait to find out what they’re getting up to next!

Are you going to Stitches West? If you are, come meet Lady Violet at Booth 636, and learn all about her Teatime Intrigues!

So many indie dyers. One email.
