One of the best things about our annual trip to market is meeting with the talented, fascinating folks behind the yarns we love. This year, we’re delighted to bring that experience to our very own shop with an exciting event: an evening with Rachel Coopey and Jeni Hewlett from Fyberspates, on Tuesday, June 7th, from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Jeni Hewlett is the creative genius behind Fyberspates, a European-based company bringing small production hand-dye and design to the US. We’ve carried their Scrumptious Lace and Vivacious 4ply for the past year or so, and just added Gleem Lace and Scrumptious 4ply/Sport–more on that in future blog posts.
Rachel Coopey is a knitwear designer who specializes in socks, and recently came out with a yarn of her own, CoopKnits Socks Yeah!
Jeni and Rachel will tell us about their background in yarn and design, present the yarns in their collections for you to try, share some of the designs that go with those yarns, and sign copies of their books. You may even get a sneak peek at what’s to come from Fyberspates! Jeni and Rachel come to the US rarely more than once a year, and we’re honored to have them visit our shop. We’re limiting attendance for this event because of our small space, so sign up soon if you’d like to meet Jeni and Rachel!
