What, I hear you say, is Yarn Tasting? I’m so glad you asked!! You know how the bread shop gives you little samples to try so you know what you really like? Well, we are giving you little samples to try so you know what you really like!
Summer presents many opportunities for yarn lovers to expand their horizons and knit/crochet with a whole variety of things that they perhaps haven’t tried before. We know we are all wool, cashmere and alpaca lovers but have you experienced the wonderful crunch of linen, the softness of cotton or the beautiful sheen of bamboo?
We have decided that you all need to try these intriguing and fabulous yarns and experience the different textured fabrics they produce. In a country with the weather vagaries that Australia experiences it just makes sense to have some summer yarns and projects as part of your ‘yarny’ repertoire. So details …….
When: Saturday 5th December 2015 11am – 3pm
Where: Sunspun Shop – 185 Canterbury Rd, Canterbury
What to bring: Knitting needles/crochet hooks in sizes 3.25mm, 3.50mm, 4.00mm (note knitting needles/crochet hooks can’t be supplied)
We will have small amounts of various yarns wound off for you to try. You will be able to take home all the swatches you make for your swatch library (we know you all have one!!!). We will have some samples made up for you to see how these yarns behave in ‘bigger than swatch size’ fabric and some patterns that would be suitable for them as well.
As a bonus and a ‘thank you for coming’, if you purchase any of the featured yarns or patterns on the day, you will receive a 10% discount.
Please let us know if you are coming to participate (you can email firstname.lastname@example.org us or phone us 03 9830 1609) so we can make sure we have enough yarn prepared.
How exciting – yarn never ‘tasted’ so good!!
