There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!

Here's what one of our participants had to say:
"Fiberside has made the pandemic tenable! I am getting to meet people I would never ever have a chance to meet, because I couldn’t afford to travel that much. Accessibility!" - Karla D.

Special Guests Include:


Mary Scott Huff
Nov 29, 2020

Let's have some fun with Mary Scott Huff as she presents a fashion show of her innovative designs. Known for her expertise in stranded color work techniques and designs along with the imagination of her fun and fantastical hats and slippers, this is sure to be an hour of inspiration and whimsy! Mary will also demonstrate a technique she uses extensively in her work, the Knitted Hem. To knit along with Mary you’ll need to have two contrasting colors of smooth yarn (nothing too dark) and needles to match. We can't wait to let you get to know Mary! Mary has so much to offer in both knitting wisdom and just having fun with yarn! Mary Scott Huff has figured it out!

This is a Live ONE TIME Zoom Event on Sunday November 29th at 5:00PM Eastern, 4:00PM Central, 3:00PM Mountain, 2:00PM Pacific.

Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event.

We Appreciate Your Support

Here at Longmont Yarn Shoppe we’ve been brainstorming strategies to weather the storm that the COVID-19 pandemic has struck upon us. The impact to the shop’s operations is extreme, & beyond our doors the ripple effect is extensive.

Temporarily gone are in-real-life trade shows, workshops and so many other ways we gather to support and celebrate our shared passion. From sheep farmers to our local indie dyers and creators of all things from patterns to accessories to yarn bowls, all are feeling the effect on their lives and livelihoods.    

In our search to keep LYS afloat and keep you, our customers engaged, we’ve explored new ways of doing things and learned other ways to reach out and connect. We appreciate your support during this trying time, and we can’t wait to see you in person at the shop some day soon!
