Thread Tasting

In the past month we've bought so many new fibers, and since it's been a while since we've had one, we thought it's the perfect time for another thread tasting! If you've never been to one (or even heard of it!) it's similar to a wine tasting, except you don't taste the actually taste the fibers! We'll be giving you a goody bag with samples of each of the fibers, as well as a canvas, upon which we will show you how to use these threads and teach you how they would be best used! As with all of our classes, there will also be beverages and snacks served.

Some of the new fibers we have already received are: River Silks 7mm, Burmilana, Waterlilies, Weeks Dye Works Sample Threads (these are beautiful cotton overdyed pearl threads), Pebbly Perle, Neon Rays Plus, Rainbow Tweed, Trebizond, Accentuate, Petite and Regular sized Peluche!

AND, we have more fibers still to come! These include: Silk Serica, Silk Mori, Gloriana (both overdye ribbon and lorikeet wool)!

The class will feature a good selection of these new fibers, and will be an excellent way to see the shop, all the new fibers, and learn how to use them! The class will be held twice, so if you can't make one date, you'll have another chance! The class will be held Thursday May 19th 5:30 - 7:00 and June 4th 3:00 - 4:30. Reservation and prepayment is required. The class will be $20. If you are interested, don't hesitate to come into the store or call us at 215-563-4566. We'll be happy to help!
