NanoStitch Lab, Word.Picture.Ink Designs, Pinecone and Walrus, and Sharon Larson Handknits will ALL be here - read on for more info...

NanoStitch Lab Trunk Show

Saturday, November 30th, 10-6

 

When Angela and Heather began dyeing their own yarn, they joked that they looked like mad scientists decked out in plastic aprons, heat-proof gloves and respirators. And once they started mixing dye and creating our own colors, they  say they FELT like mad scientists. And thus, NanoStitch Lab was born.
 

NanoStitch Lab finds inspiration for their colorways in all aspects of science: astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology and more. They are inspired by and celebrate women in STEM and have a whole line of tonal colorways named after female scientists.

Word.Picture.Ink Trunk Show

Saturday, November 30th 10-6

 

Word.Picture.Ink is a local graphic designer and artist who, in their own words, believes in art as "an amplifier and a change agent." They create pins, stickers, stitch markers, totes, and t-shirts as a platform for both speaking out and for building community. We have just started carrying a selection of their pins and stickers, and are really thrilled to have them join us for a pop-up shop, because we can't wait to see all the other goodies and designs they have to offer!

Pinecone and Walrus Trunk Show

Saturday, November 30th  10-6

 

Pinecone and Walrus is a creator of handcrafted bags and purses based in Tacoma, Washington. We have carried their small and large project bags for over a year, so you may well have seen them in the shop already. We love the quality of the work, and are a sucker for the fun fabrics they use - from florals, to narwhals, to Star Wars, we are sure you will find the perfect bag.

Sharon Larson Handknits for Water

Saturday, November 30th  10-6

 

Sharon Larson will be selling her beautiful hand-knit items in the shop again this year. The purchase of these articles supports a project in Northern Uganda which builds structures and spigots at naturally flowing springs in order to provide clean, safe water for villagers. Currently there are at least 75 springs in Northern Uganda identified for this building project and each spring provides clean water to hundreds of villagers who, in turn, take care of all of the labor and maintenance. Additionally, runoff water can now be used in caring for animals, and the decreased time spent dipping and hauling water allows girls to attend school, increases time spent with families and community, and frees up labor efforts for farming and other subsistence practices.

 

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these lovingly handmade items is contributed towards the purchase and delivery of sand, gravel, bricks, and cement. Each spring costs around $1200 USD to improve and, to date, 7 springs have been fully supported through this particular effort. We are hoping to complete funding for a 8th spring by the end of this year. Sharon will be on hand all day to answer any of your questions about this passion of hers (and ours).

Knitting Through History: A Collaboration Between Seattle Yarn and the Log House Museum

We have an exciting new collaboration starting this month: we are working with the Southwest Historical Society to do a knit-a-long at the Log House Museum - Knit Through History!  Destiny has designed a new pattern that is inspired by their current exhibit, Between the Lines: Power and Parallels of the West Seattle Annexation. Starting September 19th, we will co-host a knit-a-long of this pattern. We will be there to help with the knitting, and museum staff will be there to talk about local history. 

 
The pattern, Power and Parallels, is available now at the shop and on Ravelry - click here!
If you purchase your KAL yarn from us, we will include the pattern free!
