Hi guys! We're doing one more Houston Fiber Folk meetup for 2017! We'll be meeting December 7 at 7 pm @mktbar in Phoenicia Specialty Foods in downtown. They have a (free!) parking garage and amazing food. Please feel free to bring a project to work on! We're going to eat, drink and be crafty 😜 This is open to all fiber folk in the Houston area, weavers, spinners, knitters, crocheters and any other type of fiber art maker. We'd love to see you there 😊🐑 #houstonfiberfolkmeetup#fiberfriends#eatdrinkandbecrafty
If you’re signed up for the newsletter you’ll be getting a 30% off coupon in the next few days to celebrate my upcoming birthday! 🎉
This will be a one-time use discount code that you can apply any time in case you miss this next shop update.
Unfortunately this will be another smaller re-stock since both my baby @littlelucillelou and my James have had trips to the doctor the last few days due to mystery illnesses we’re trying to figure out 😔
But! I’ll have bigger updates in December for sure, so sign-up for the newsletter (link in profile) and hang on to that coupon for a rainy day 💖
We are thrilled to now carry @knitwitknitwit magazine - a local L.A. publication for fiber enthusiasts!

Come check out this gorgeous magazine for yourself! #knitwitmagazine#local#knittingmagazine#fiberfriends

New Weaving Kits are finally posted in the shop! Each kit contains a carefully curated selection of naturally dyed fabric + fiber with a unique story of where it was sourced and what dyes were utilized. Kits can be purchased with or without a metal frame loom, whichever you prefer.
If last weekend's sales at @craftybastards are any indication, these may go quick.
Follow the profile link for more details!
Our Fiber friend @mistymountainmakers is giving away one of our Beautiful Syster bags and a beautiful skein of yarn she dyed. Go check out her Podcast and Raverly group Down the Hobbit Hole for all the details.
Huge shoutout to my test knitters who provide me with much needed response and feedback during the pattern development stage. One of my favourite parts of the test knitting process is seeing the different yarns that others choose! Here are a few shots from @hallonris @knitsbylindalou and @b.tauson of their completed #fallsfirstfrost shawls. Thank you ladies!!
Kits are still available for preorder from @sixandsevenfiber if you’re as inspired by Rachel’s colourways as I am, but if you want to do your own thing I’d love to see what colour combinations you come up with! Pattern is 20% off on Ravelry until the end of tonight (11:59 PST) with the code FOLLOWER so smash that link in the bio y’all ⬆️
