fun day with visitors from black mountain yarn shop

Posted on: April 23rd, 2016 by nina chicago


Last weekend a group of 16 knitters from Black Mountain Yarn Shop visited us during their Chicago Knitaway.  What a fabulous group!  We enjoyed having them spend the afternoon with us shopping and knitting.

We assembled a display of local “Made in the Midwest” products   – including vibrant yarn from Leading Men Fiber Arts, and adorable stitch markers from the talented glass artist, Ann Tudor.

Local pattern designer, Heidi (of the blog handsoccupied), offered a little Trunk Show. She discussed her design process and showed her latest samples (like this pretty Howdy Ombre pictured).

We celebrated staff birthdays while they were here, so we all sang and enjoyed some yummy cake together.

As they left they posed for a fun group shot outside our shop.  We hope they’ll come back to see us again!  It was great to meet them!
