Launch of the FOCUS ON LOCAL Trunk Shows
Save the date! We are launching our monthly FOCUS ON LOCAL Trunk Show with a bang in one week’s time with a visit from Veronika Jobe of YOTH Yarn on the House yarns. On January 23rd from 6-8pm, we will be hosting our inaugural open house showcasing YOTH’s yarns and patterns with multiple garments and other finished objects on display as a yarn porn show and tell.
Our aim is to promote and provide a venue to showcase local talent, which we have oodles of in our local Vancouver, BC, and Pacific Northwest community. Some of the artists we have lined up for these monthly offering will be well-known names, others will be unearthed golden nuggets, and these evenings will give all the knitters in our community as chance to see and feel the beauty that comes from the perfect match of yarn + pattern. And to continue our year-long support of our community, partial proceeds of the $5 door fee will go to support local women’s’ shelter.
We are also thrilled to present VERONIKA’S KNITTING SECRETS prior to the trunk show happening from 4-5:30pm on the afternoon of the 23rd. Ve will be sharing her favorite techniques for beautiful knits, tools and online resources to reference the most commonly used knitting expertise, and her go-to knitting tricks, and there will be a Q&A at the end.
At each trunk show we will announce each following month’s trunk show focus, but keep an eye on teasers throughout our media for hints on what’s coming up. We are pretty excited to be able to share that February’s FOCUS ON LOCAL Trunk Show will feature Andrea Rangel from Victoria on Friday February 19th, and she will also be sharing her often sold out presentation THE FINE ART OF YARN SUBSTITUTION on February 20th. Be sure to sign up early as this one has been a hit whenever Andrea presents.
