Bedhead Fiber Trunk Show - November 17th, 1pm
We are excited to host Kelli of Bedhead Fiber for a trunk show on Saturday, Novemeber 17th, at 1pm!
Bedhead fiber uses largely locally sourced fiber and all natural dye materials such as flowers, bark, mushrooms, and bugs - much of it grown and foraged in the Pacific Northwest. Come hear all about it from Kelli, and of course, see and touch her beautiful and unique yarn!
Cedar House Yarns Trunk Show - December 1st
Cedar House Yarns, a local indie dyer out of Bellingham, Washington, creates gorgeous colors inspired by and evoking the natural world of the Pacifc Northwest. If you've seen and used Cedar House Yarns, you know what a feast for the eyes and touch it is. If you haven't seen the lucious colors of these yarns yet, you're not going to want to miss this chance!
Kate Atherley In-Store Book-Signing and Classes - DECEMBER 7, 8, and 9, 2018
Please join Seattle Yarn in welcoming Kate Atherley to the shop for a signing of her upcoming book, ‘The Knitter’s Dictionary’, and 2 full days of in-store classes. Kate is Knitty.com’s Managing Technical Editor, and a seasoned designer and teacher of all things knitterly. Her last book, ‘Knit Mitts: Your Hand-y Guide to Knitting Mittens and Gloves’ was released in fall 2017, and the first printing sold out in record time.
‘Custom Socks: Knit to Fit Your Feet’ was released summer 2015 by Interweave Press, to great acclaim. It takes a different approach than many sock books, teaching you how to measure your feet and providing numbers for working both toe-up and top down socks for 12 sizes and 9 gauges.
Her ‘Pattern Writing for Knit Designers’ book is the industry’s first guide specifically written to help knit designers (and teachers) of all levels create easy-to-follow, high quality knitting patterns. It’s been called a “game-changer” and a “must-have” by designers and magazine editors. She’s known for her attention to detail in her patterns and her classes, and she regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Interweave YarnFest and Vogue Knitting Live. Her work has appeared in many books and magazines.
Kate lives in Toronto with her husband and their adorable but sometimes challenging rescue dog Dexter.
The Knitter’s Dictionary is available for pre-order at Seattle Yarn through September. Book release and delivery will be in October.
