What has two thumbs, a stellar fashion sense, and loves autumn? Me! I do! Probably threw you off with that line about fashion sense. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean I don’t have it!

To wit, the light-mid weight denim I ordered is here and it’s lovely! We also got some beautiful new cotton florals, and just to send summer off with a bang, some new big gingham check cotton, too! Come in for a peek and a pet of this fun fabric from @artgalleryfabrics

See you soon!

Indeed, friends! These last two weeks have been soooo busy, but in the best possible way! I know I owe you video updates on the August KAL and SAL and they’re coming! We also have a Zoom Book Club that I know you’re looking forward to tomorrow, so if you signed up, stay tuned for that invite shortly. And, it’s time for our monthly newsletter, too! So many moving pieces, but they’re all fun!

And speaking of fun things that are moving … we cannot wait for another store refresh because WE GOT NEW FABRIC in today. I haven’t even opened the boxes yet because I am too excited. I know there’s some denim on there! We also got confirmation that our yarn from @oldrustedchair is winging it’s way south from Tennessee and will be here tomorrow. And, if that weren’t enough … okay, maybe that IS enough for now. I need to lay down for a second! The excitement is killing me!!

Get your ombré on! We are working up a beautiful pattern for a wrap or hat using these soft and fuzzy mohair and silk/mohair blends! I know it’s 9000 degrees outside right now, but you’ll thank us in December! 😊
Putting the finishing touches on the patterns tomorrow and they’ll be up on Monday. Have a great weekend!

I mean … if I do say so myself — and I’m gonna— that is a cute tote right there! We saw this kit from @wyldwoodcreative two weeks ago, ordered it, got it in a few days, and boom, pow, yes and um-hmm, got it knocked out in less than an hour. Even with a bobbin change (and cursing because of the bobbin change). The kit has everything you need and a super user-friendly pattern all bundled up in the cutest package you’ll ever see. Once you make one, you won’t be able to stop!

These 90+ degree hot, humid days have us counting down the days until sweater weather. 🥵 In the meantime, we’ll just keep ogling at all the beautiful wool yarn until we can start on our first sweater of Fall 2021! What first project do you have planned for the cooler weather?

End of August Updates!

It's been a busy month already, and we're wrapping it up with more classes, some new make-a-long projects, and some online events you won't want to miss!

We still have spots available for Beginning Knitting on Saturday 8/21 and Saturday 8/28! This two-hour class will get you started with the basics and you'll leave with a completed coffee sleeve. Plus, as always, there will be snacks!

You've still got time to join in the fun for the August Sew-a-Long. Make a small or large tote bag you can use for your WIPs, or just keep them around to look at because they're that cute! All materials included in the SAL kit -- fabric, interfacing, thread and instructions!

Join us on IGLive this coming Friday for a fun conversation about crafting, making, self-care and probably some other fun stuff, too! We're excited to be in conversation with @lanerdyhooker about her process, what she's working on and what making means to her!

Our first book club event kicks off on 8/26! We're so excited to be reading When No One Is Watching, by Alyssa Cole. It's a fun and steamy and super-summer appropriate read that's perfect for reading while making! We're limiting capacity due to COVID, but there are still a few spots left. Check out the link here (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/164761575307) to register! I probably don't have to say this at this point, but yes, there will be snacks! Bring your projects, be prepared for a fun discussion and let's read and make do!

More to come ...

September will see us welcoming new Indie Dyers to the inventory and a trunk show from one of our favorites, too. Stay tuned for more info soon!

Check out our event on Friday, Aug 20, 2021.

The gift of being a #lys is in the community we get to create and be engaged with. (Grammar police, no! Prepositions at the end of a sentence are okay on social.)

What better example of that gift than when a customer — one of our favorites, Trey Wermes], stops in to share a finished garment with us. (And, @silkroadtextiles, we stay fighting for custody of this one!) The fabric? Not ours. Do we care? Nope. Is it dope? Absolutely. Wherever and whenever you make something you’re proud of, or even if you make something that makes you say, “Where did I go wrong?”, we are honored and humbled to be your resource, your comfort, or your cheerleader!!! Rah-rah, Trey Wermes]! That jacket (from recycled jeans, I might add) is 🔥!! So glad you shared it with us and keep on making!

Do you wanna win a t-shirt tomorrow? We got two to give away. If they don’t fit, we can help you repurpose them into masks because that’s how we do.

We’re open from 11am to 4pm Saturday! All you have to do is come in — no purchase necessary, but please mask up — answer a fabric or yarn trivia question on our wheel-of-fabric-and-yarn-trivia (copyright pending) and every right answer gets you entered into the bucket-of-winner-names (copyright also pending) for a drawing at the end of the day. We’ll ship or deliver to the winners!
It’s not confirmed yet, but the shop dog might be around the joint tomorrow, too for a bit!
