Purl City Yarns is very excited to announce two upcoming events: The Natural Dye Studio Trunk Show and the Fyberspates Trunk Show.
Amanda Perkins from the Natural Dye Studio will be joining us on Wednesday, 8th December, 5pm-8pm to celebrate the launch of our extended range of Natural Dye Studio yarns.
The Natural Dye Studio exclusively uses historical plant dyes which produce an astounding spectrum of beautiful subtle colour. Their aim is to produce desirable luxury yarns in as ethical and enviromentally friendly way as possible. They dye using the plants rather than the extracts as they say its ‘much more fun’!
Amanda will be at Purl City Yarns to explain more about the process of dyeing and the yarns they use. The Natural Dye Studio’s Dazzle British Blue Faced Leicester is licensed by the British Wool Marketing Board to carry the prestigious British Wool mark. All their exotic yarns come from a family run mill in Peru.
Amanda is also on a personal mission to make crochet motifs ‘sexy and desirable’. And will be talking about her beautiful crochet designs.
She explains: “Motifs normally have a bad reputation, ever noticed the un-loved granny square blankets lurking in the depths of many charity shops? The motifs deserve a bit more respect and love, hence my crusade!”
“I make pretty things exclusively using the Natural Dye Studio’s luxury yarns. The subtle plant dyed colours lend themselves to being mixed together in one big project. I am fascinated by the gaps between the joined motifs, they often form a secondry un-planned design that you will only discover after joining them. I like suprises!”
The Natural Dye Studio trunk show will take place in the gallery and refreshments will be available free of charge. The event is free to attend but as we can only offer a limited number of places, so in order to attend you need to email us at email@example.com to reserve a place. Places will be reserved on a first come, first served basis.
Jeni Hewlett of Fyberspates will be joining us at Purl City Yarns on Saturday, 11th December, 4pm- 6pm to celebrate the launch of our extended range of Fyberspates yarns.
In addition to the beautiful Scrumptious range, we will now be stocking a wide range of absolutely gorgeous Fyberspates sock and lace yarns including Nef Lace, Scrumptious Sock, Sparkle Sock, Faery Wings and Ethereal. Trunk show attendees will be the first to see and pet the yarns!
Jeni will be talking all about her yarns and the inspiration and process behind them. She will also be discussing the range of beautiful patterns that accompany Fyberspates yarns.
The Fyberspates trunk show will take place in the gallery and refreshments will be available free of charge. The event is free to attend but as we can only offer a limited number of places, so in order to attend, you need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
