Have you guys heard of Yarns on Stage? It’s a super-awesome conglomeration of fantabulous hand-dyers coming together to offer you, the discerning sock knitter, the chance to get one-of-a-kind colorways from some of the best dyers out there!
On October 16, 2010, ten of today’s hottest hand-dyers will debut unique, limited-edition colorways designed for knitters who know their obsession is not just a craft, but an art. Yarns on Stage has partnered with select yarn shops, including TWISTED!! across the U.S., Canada, France and the U.K. for this one-day release. We will have, just for you, a party to celebrate the awesomeness of Yarns on Stage, AND we’ll have the sock samples, AND we’ll be giving away a cute little black sheep named Sidney.
As an added bonus (or two), Debby and Stevanie from Pico Accuardi Dyeworks, which is headquartered right here in lovely Portland, Oregon, will be on-hand for shmoozing and chatting from 10am – 1pm. We’ll have some snackies and juice, too. We carry Pico Accuardi’s gorgeous sock yarn right here in the shop, and love everything about them. They dye using natural dyes AND acid dyes, which lends a lovely depth to their colorways.
AND, we are fortunate enough to have gotten our hands on all of the sock samples for Yarns on Stage, so make sure you spend some time checking them out, too.
So come in to Twisted on Saturday, October 16th, to join the festivities!!!
Check out the YoS contest right here (make sure you enter BEFORE October 1st)!
