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, 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!

Special Guests Include:

Tin Can Knits
July 31, 2020

It would be difficult to find a knitter who has not cast on a Tin Can Knits Pattern.  Now you can join us at Fiberside for a Chat with Alexa of Tin Can Knits! Along with a bit about her knitting journey, Alexa will be discussing her favourite topic: designing a colourwork yoke using the Strange Brew recipe. She will also be available for Q&A so bring all of your Tin Can Knits questions!

This is a one time live Zoom on July 31st 2020 at 5pm MT

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!
