Longmont Yarn Shoppe Presents: Fiberside Chats



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

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!

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:


Vincent Williams
May 8, 2021

Universal Colorwork Across Crafts Colorwork is one of the exciting ways that makers can explore their self expression and creativity! Have you ever encountered a beautiful colorwork design, but the pattern is written for a craft different from your own? Join Vincent for an evening of fun introductions on how to access and expand your realm of colorwork by working with designs that’ve been created as either knitted OR crochet pattern. Knitters, grab your needles, and crocheters, bust out your hooks, because we hope all of your minds are ready to craft even more colorwork than before!

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Saturday, May 8th at 6:00pm Eastern, 5:00pm Central, 4:00pm Mountain, 3:00pm 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.

Celebrate the Summer Solstice!
For our Fiberside Chat, Hannah will dive into the Summer Solstice section of her new book, Seasonal Slow Knitting, and chat about what it means to knit seasonally in the hottest moments of the year--even when wool doesn't seem like much of an option. By reframing our year-long relationship according to what the world around us demands, you'll discover more freedom, renewed inspiration and excitement when it's time to pick up those stitches! For the full effect of this Summer Solstice chat, we encourage attendees to wear their very best handmade crowns (flowers, yarn, whatever you like). This event will be LOADED with gifts and discounts for attendees and a very special giveaway.

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Sunday, June 20th 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!
