Longmont Yarn Shoppe Presents: Fiberside Chats

Join Live Online Chats with Some of Fiber's Most Exciting Creators

We’ve invited some of your favorite designers and creators to join us for a series of online gatherings with Longmont Yarn Shoppe: Fiberside Chats!

Launched in May of 2020, these gatherings hosted on Zoom, are one-hour sessions with special guests joining us to give a peek into their world. These designers and creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, latest projects—or whatever is inspiring them now. There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!

Fiberside Chats costs $20 to register. You can choose any of our participating yarn shops to assign your registration fee to.

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:

Nancy Marchant
July 31, 2021

In this Fiberside Chat we’ll be in the presence of the “Queen Mother of Brioche”, Nancy Marchant! She will share the history of how she developed the brioche stitch and tuck stitches for hand knitters too. We’ll be heartened to learn that although she’s been ‘brioching’ for years she still finds the stitch difficult to read in some circumstances. Nancy will share tips and tricks to help you in your next brioche project. We’ll see many examples from her books and get an insider view of her latest book idea – Knitting Brioche Shapes. Whether you’re experienced, a novice, or completely intimidated by this stitch – you won’t want to miss this Chat!!

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Saturday, July 31st at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific, 7:00pm CEST.

Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it.

David Johnson
August 7th, 2021


Please join David Johnson for this Fiberside Chat where he will bring us insight into the physics of light and color in tandem with the spiritual and emotional content that artists express through their work in the symbolic use of color. As a tapestry weaver, David dyes his own yarns using a very structured process creating hue and value gradations. Within this systematic process there is an almost magic quality as yarns absorb dyes and subtle tints, tones, and shades develop. In this Chat David will share his unique view of color as energy and the common thread it carries through emotional, physical and spiritual contexts.

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Saturday, August 7th at 4:00pm Eastern, 3:00pm Central, 2:00pm Mountain, 1:00pm Pacific.

Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it.

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!
