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 & our group of 30 collaborating Yarn Shops across North America. We call these:  Fiberside Chats!

Launched in May 2020, Chats are one-hour Zoom sessions with special guests joining us to give a peek into their world. These designers & creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, favorite techniques, latest projects, or whatever is inspiring them now. There will be opportunity for Q&A & other fun surprises like giveaways & pattern discounts for those who join!

Fees & Registration

Your seat at Fiberside Chats is just $20. This fee supports the guest speaker & the LYS you sign up under. At the registration page you can choose to purchase your ticket from any of the shops listed. If you’re not affiliated with any of the shops you can choose the founder & host shop, Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  

Have a conflict in your schedule? Don't worry we've got you covered. Many of our guests are allowing Zoom recordings of their Chat. Whether the Chat will be recorded or not will be clearly stated for each event. Recordings will be available for 1 week after the chat, only to registered attendees.

What happens when you knit or crochet?

Around here if you sit down to knit for a while, we call it “having a knit” and we all know we like it and that it’s compelling - but do you know what’s really happening while you do it? Join Stephanie Pearl-McPhee for this enlightening hour as she leads us to explore the physical, chemical and emotional effects that knitting has on your brain and your body, and just why you like it so much. (Hint: You’re smart!...also - it might be addictive.) Register now to "have a knit" with Stephanie at Fiberside Chats! 

This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, January 23rd at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific.

THIS CHAT WILL BE RECORDED

How often does the question “Who discovered this?” pop into your head when seeing a spectacular technique in knitting for the first time?

Join Alasdair Post-Quinn, author of Extreme Double-Knitting, to learn some history of double knitting during this Fiberside Chat. Alasdair will also demonstrate some of the basic and not-so-basic techniques he's developed and honed over the past 15 years, and will show off some of his most interesting samples. He'll answer all your questions about double-knitting, his design process, inspirations, etc. during our hour together. It’s time to adventure into this technique with Alasdair!

This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, February 6th at 3:00pm Eastern, 2:00pm Central, 1:00pm Mountain, 12:00pm Pacific.

"Our Common Threads - How Creative Ceci Knits The World"

Fiber enthusiast Cecilia Nelson-Hurt, known to many as Creative Ceci is not only a diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioner for a major global company; she is also a passionate knitter who blends her love of creating spaces to discuss diversity and her love of knitting and travel seamlessly on social media and in real life. Having traveled around the world and visited more than 175 yarn shops, Cecilia has discovered that it's "our common threads" that knit us together. She will share her favorite travel experiences where she’s learned every yarn shop around the globe is a community where we can always belong, even if you don’t know the language.

Join Cecilia for a candid conversation on how she "knits the world" in both her professional and crafting world.

This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, February 20th at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific.

We Appreciate Your Support

Fiberside Chats was borne as a response to the initial COVID -19 pandemic & lockdowns. Our goal was to stay connected with meaningful content for our community of makers and creators. 

As we've moved forward we've made new friends and learned together in this virtual world called Zoom. Suddenly we had a way to share in and be together from the safety and comfort of our couch,  all the while being miles and sometimes continents apart. The world became closer again, at least for that hour.

Please sign up for the Longmont Yarn Shoppe weekly email to stay appraised of upcoming guests.
