2023 Wild West Summer Yarn Club from Longmont Yarn Shoppe
Another Summer Yarn Club Begins!
Embark on a mesmerizing summer journey with Longmont Yarn Shoppe's extraordinary Yarn Club Adventure! This year, we unite Friendship, Fiber & Fun as we traverse the stunning landscapes of the west, from vibrant Colorado and majestic Montana to mesmerizing Arizona.
Join us on our Wild West Summer Yarn Club expedition as we unravel the exquisite artistry of hand dyers in the region. With each passing month - June through August - indulge in custom color palettes inspired by sweeping western vistas, and transform these enchanting hues into captivating accessories that radiate creative energy.
About the Monthly Kits
Each package includes 2 skeins of hand dyed yarn & a knit or crochet pattern chosen specifically for the club & inspired by the location. There will also be special fiber related gifts and goodies inspired by our Wild West Summer Yarn Club theme, plus tasty treats, because we all love treats when we travel!
One of the best parts about the summer yarn club is the element of surprise, receiving a package in the mail that is based on the theme but allowing some element of adventure. For that reason we do not spell out the contents of each package - it takes away from the adventure!
Summer Yarn Club members will have the opportunity to connect on Ravelry & via a Hybrid Zoom/in person meetups at LYS each month with fellow club members. At these meet ups we'll meet our dyers and when possible, the designers of the patterns we are using!
Our featured dyers this year are Yarn Baby from Colorado, Polka Dot Sheep from Montana and Mary Gavan Yarns from Arizona. Each dyer contributes beautiful hand dyed yarns in a color way that reflects their location, keeping your hands happy and busy over the summer months.

Prepare to be dazzled by an array of shades, from the serene warmth of the desert southwest to the rolling wheat fields of the west, and Rocky Mountain wildflowers in between. This summer, let the allure of the west awaken the master artist in you!
