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 new online gatherings with Longmont Yarn Shoppe: Fiberside Chats!

These gatherings, hosted on Zoom, will be 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:

Laura Bellows
May 28 – 5pm MT

Laura’s journey to founding JUL Designs in her basement began in Bali, Indonesia! Laura will share the story of how her PhD field research led to collaboration and close relationships with Bali's skilled artisans and the commitment to people and place that is at the heart of JUL Designs. Join us to hear Laura's tips on the creative process and never leave another finished piece languish in your dresser drawer again!

June 4 – 2pm MT

Casapinka has brightened our pandemic altered reality with wry humor, PINK inspiration and generosity of spirit. Let’s be honest – who hasn’t laughed so hard you cried at all the antics! Her non-LYS Day Breathe and Hope Shawl pattern gave us exactly what it was named to do…… we cast on our projects, took a deep breath and hoped she’d say yes to joining us for Fiberside Chats. And it’s YES! She will share quips, inspiration, tips, show and tell - new, upcoming and old and who knows what else Sharon from Security will allow her to share with us! This will be a jam-packed hour that will be well worth your time. You don’t want to miss 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 when this is all over!
