Rose City Yarn Crawl Starts Tomorrow!

Prepare to crawl, fiber enthusiasts! The RCYC has been a Portland institution for years now, and for good reason. Discover new yarns, meet dyers and designers, experience trunk shows from your favorite lines, and enter to win some epic prizes. Take a look at the prizes here. There is so much good stuff in these baskets!

Our little shop will be chock full of awesome yarn and people, even more so than usual. The full schedule is here, but I'll give you a little run down.

We will be showcasing trunk shows from Blue Sky Fibers and Shibui Knits during the entire event, beginning Thursday morning. If you have been excited to see these yarns knit up or try on a few of the garments from their recent pattern releases, then pop in for a chance to get your hands on these. Thursday and Friday are generally the quieter days when you'll have a better opportunity to see these in person.

On Thursday, we are thrilled to host Candice of Farmer's Daughter Fibers from Montana. Her yarns are so beautiful, my friends. They remind me a bit of Tosh in their subtlety and color range. You will love it, I promise. We are carrying her yarns full-time now, but she is going to bring all kinds of goodies from her dye studio that we might not see again. Thursday only!
On Friday, we will see Sarah of Bumblebirch Yarn. Her yarns have become a staple in the shop, and we love hosting her during the crawl. Her Dandelion colorway remains one of my most favorite. The colors are rich and the yarns are so soft!

We will also host designer Lisa Carney-Fenton on Friday. We will have a chance to meet her and check some of her recently-published designs.

Saturday brings Ami of Lakes Yarn and Fiber. I have a slight obsession with this gorgeous stuff, as I have recently admitted. I can't wait to see even more of her beautiful yarns!

We will wrap up on Sunday with Krista of Pigeon Roof Studios. She has recently relocated to Portland, and we feel so fortunate to have her this weekend. She will be showing off her beautiful yarns, including her gradient and ombre sets.
The whole things starts Thursday morning at 10. Join us this weekend for all the fun!
