FRIDAY & SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17 - 18
Yarn Shop Valentine Progressive Party
We are partnering with New River Art & Fiber and Wool Workshop to host this 4th annual Yarn Shop Valentine event! You will be able to participate in person, online, or a combination of both.
Snow Dates will be the following weekend Feb 24th & 25th.
The Yarn Shop Valentine event will include...
*Event-exclusive yarn by local dyer
Aster Fiber Company
*Event exclusive stitch markers from local maker Twin Mountain Handcrafts
*Event-exclusive patterns designed by local designers Kendra of Aster Fiber Co & Cat of Cesium Yarn
*Heart Scavenger Hunt
Aster Fiber Company has created three stunning colorways especially for this event, one for each shop. The purchase of each skein will come with its corresponding section of the pattern and a stitch marker made for the event by Twin Mountain Handcrafts. Each shop's stitch marker will be different, so collect all the yarns to get the full set!
Kendra of Aster Fiber Co has designed the knit pattern this year.
Cat of Cesium Yarn has designed the crochet pattern this year.
Both patterns are designed in thirds and are to be used with the event's three colorways. Each shop will be distributing one clue of each pattern and you will have your choice between the knitting pattern or the crochet pattern when you purchase a skein of the event yarn (through Saturday February 18).
Each shop will have a knitted or crocheted heart hidden somewhere in the shop and also one hidden on their website! Find the heart and post a photo of it on Instagram with the hashtag #YarnShopValentine2023 and tag the shop you found it at! @wool_workshop_ or @artandfiber or @knittincoop
You know we are chicken crazy here at The Coop...so when you find the "Love Chicken" hidden somewhere on our website let us know where you found it to be in the running for a prize!
