Amazing Threads A Wonderful Retreat and New Yarn


 
We had a wonderful weekend at retreat with friends, new and old!  It was a lovely venue, great food, and so much fun!  Thank you to all that attended!

We had a few special guests join us including Michelle from Squareknot Handmade bags and Kelsey from Primrose Fibers.  Our attendees were able to shop the bags available and order custom bags with their own fabric combinations!  We also had our Amazing Threads debut of the Roan line from Primrose.  Our attendees had expert help in picking out the perfect color combinations for their next projects!

Megan from BriocheandBrews not only brought a new supply of unique, handspun yarn, but she also gave a spinning demonstration and gave a presentation on different fibers.  These beauties are now available in the shop!  Be sure to take a peek next time you stop in!

Our retreat sweater selected last year was the Calliope sweater! It was so fun to see those that finished their project and were able to wear them at retreat!  They look amazing!
