Shibui Spring 19 Trunk Show!

Another Trunk Show has arrived to decorate our walls and inspire your summer stitching – come by before July 31 to see Shibui’s Spring 19 collection in person!

Shibui is known for the elegant simplicity of their designs, the modern shapes and subtle textures created by combining yarns two or three strands at a time.

This Spring 19 collection has some of that yarn-mixing, but you’ll also find two yarns used separately within the same garment – a shawl knit with Rain but trimmed in Reed, for example.

It’s always a treat to see knit garments in person; photos just don’t do them justice. It’s an extra treat to get the materials at a discount, and because this show came during our Annual Inventory Sale, everything in stock is 15% off!

Come by before July 31 to see the show and take advantage of this sale as you plan your next projects. See you soon!

A reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, no returns, nor will we special order. Thanks!
