Fall brings some new beginnings, but it’s also notable for its endings. Recently, Asti of Juno Fibre Arts made the tough decision to bring her dyeing operation to an end and focus her creative efforts elsewhere.
Before shutting down, she will have two last updates on Etsy. The first will take place on Monday, Oct. 13, and will be mostly laceweight and the more limited-edition and luxury bases. On Oct. 16, Asti will list her remaining fingering-weight skeins for sale. There are also a few last braids of fiber and DK-weight skeins up in the shop.
Asti will give a preview before each update on her blog and on Facebook so you can plan your purchases. Take the opportunity to celebrate a very talented indie dyer and help her wipe the slate clean before embarking on her next adventure.
Erica of Squoosh Fiberarts has decided to try out a Color of the Month, a limited-edition colorway that is only available to pre-order before it’s retired. In October, the Color of the Month is actually three different colors: Cauldron, Toothbreaker and Frosted Leaves are available on a choice of bases and fibers until Oct. 15.
Get your maple fix without the calories (of course, calories don’t count if you’re at a fiber festival). For all of October, Fastenation Studio is offering maple leaf button sets on sale for only $5. Each set includes five 3/4″ buttons, and Hannah can make them up in any color or color combination.
If you plan to be in New York City on Saturday, definitely make a beeline to the third annual Kings County Fiber Festival, a unique event held on the picturesque streets of Park Slope, Brooklyn. Lexi of Queen Bee Fibers will be there with plenty of hand-dyed fiber and her Bee & Ewe Healing Honey Lotion, which uses beeswax and honey from her hives.
