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:

Lucy Neatby
Sept 26, 2020

Over the last 40-ish years Lucy has explored many areas of knitting; intarsia, lace, modules, stranded (to name but some) and had been heard to say that she has no favourites. However for the last ten years or more she’s been down the rabbit hole that is double knitting. Her addiction to double knitting was not an overnight transformation and today we’ll take a look at her journey, what double layer knitting can achieve, why it has such a mystique, and for those interested, how to set out on the adventure into this parallel knitting universe. 

This is a one time Live Zoom Event Saturday, September 26th: 2:00pm ADT(Novia Scotia is in Atlantic Time Zone), 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am MT, 10:00am Pacific

Toni Lipsey
Sept 30, 2020

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all about Tunisian crochet with crochet educator and designer Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts! Tunisian crochet is a cross between traditional crochet and knitting that creates a uniquely fabulous fabric. Toni will demo the basic techniques as well as a few fun stitches during this Fiberside Chat, share a few of her favorite Tunisian crochet designs for your inspiration and answer questions live!

You’re encouraged to learn alongside Toni during the Chat. All you need is a 6.5mm straight crochet hook (no special handle or ergonomic design) and a small amount of worsted weight yarn.

This is a one time Live Zoom Event Wednesday, September 30th: 6:00pm Eastern, 5:00pm Central, 4:00pm MT, 3:00pm Pacific

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!
