What to stash this week: tea with yarn

A gray mug with Brooklyn in script sits on an orange swatch of knitting next to a black pouch of Brooklyn Tea.Recently, for the August installment of the Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, which brought together Naomi of Humble Knit and designer Camille Descoteaux for a shawl pattern, I included a gift that’s my new obsession: Cucumber Melon Green Tea from Brooklyn Tea. They generously sent some extra pouches, and I realized: I have some fabulous custom mugs from Portland, Oregon-based JaMpdx, they need some tea to go with them!

While supplies last, you can order any custom JaMpdx mug — the Indie AF mugs, Brooklyn mugs and Brooklyn Brewed Pints — and add on a 1 oz tea pouch from Brooklyn Tea or a Coveted Collection Tea Box from eteaket in Scotland for 25% off!

We’re busy making plans for our October show in Saugerties and online. We are happy to announce that we have an outdoor picnic area, sponsored by Scratch Supply Co. and the Make Good Podcast, where you hang out with your fiber friends, craft and grab a bite to eat from food vendors.

To get ready, make sure you have all your indie supplies at hand. Aside from snagging your tickets, you can preorder your event tote bags (placing a bag order today guarantees you a bag, as there’s going to be a limited supply at the event). We also have hand sanitizer from our partners at Soak available to pick up at the show or to have shipped after the show. And I’m taking preorders for one last round of yarn ball masks, so you can show off your indie pride while staying safe.

If you haven’t gotten your tickets, purchase your tickets soon. Some of the sessions are close to selling out.
