Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and for many people that means bbqs, picnics, and lots of other fun parties and gatherings. We’ve got our own weekend of activities planned, and we hope you can join us!
On May 25th from 1:00 – 3:00pm we’ll be hosting a Shibui Mix Party. Shibui Knits is based in Portland, Oregon, and they create beautiful yarns full of texture and character. Their current selection of yarns have been spun from the finest fibers available, then dyed in their special color palette.
Shibui has created a pattern line called Mix that combines Shibui’s existing yarns to make new and interesting fabrics for gorgeous designs. At our Mix Party, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about how to combine yarns to achieve different gauges. It’ll be educational and fun, plus you’ll leave with a bag of Shibui yarn samples to play with at home. Shibui has also donated kits for Mix 13 and Mix 15, and we’ll be giving them away as door prizes! Give us a call at (941)487-7914 to reserve your space, or sign up on our website.
Also, whether or not you can join us for the Mix party, be sure to stop by the shop beforehand for our 2nd Annual Wounded Warrior Cookout. Susan’s husband Murray (the photographer who provides the inspiration for our Purldiver yarns) started this cookout last year as an opportunity to support the Wounded Warrior Project. It was such a great event that we’ve decided to continue this year, and hopefully for many years to come! We’ll have plenty of free food to go around, and we’ll be collecting donations for this great non-profit organization.
We hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend – hopefully we’ll see you at the shop for some delicious and yarny fun!
