Ultra Pima yarn: Recycle these DB Prima inspired patterns, affordably

Thursday, April 9th, 2015 Posted in General News, Knitting, On Sale | No Comments »


The Debbie Bliss Prima book is marked down to $9.00 (reg. $17.95) while supplies last. Debbie Bliss Prima was discontinued a while ago, but don’t despair, Ultra Pima to the rescue! Ultra Pima is a drop-in replacement for DB, and these patterns look wonderful in it. Pair Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton Yarn with any of these designs for a crisp summer knit.  The luster of Ultra Pima adds chic shimmer and excellent stitch definition to your knitting.  At 220 yards per 100 gram hank, solid shades are a steal at $9.75. Add a plethora of color with Cascade Ultra Pima Paints Cotton Yarn for $13.00 each (lower prices when you order 8+ of any color within each yarn line!).


Three highlighted projects:


Sarita Sleeveless Tunic Top has a deep V front and side slits, perfect to layer over a tank or dress.  A classic design requiring just 4-5 skeins depending on the garment size. Read the rest of this entry »

FiberMe tour highlight: Chris Leith

Thursday, April 9th, 2015 Posted in Events, Fiber Arts Education, On Sale | No Comments »


A FiberMe highlight for me is our visit to Chris Leith of Eggemoggin Textile Studio in Sedgwick, Maine.  Chris’ lovely home and studio are perched high on a hill with a distant view of Eggemoggin Bay  and the surrounding blueberry fields.  Chris has a dye / warp painting area set up as well as her two eight shaft looms and a gallery area featuring her woven and shibori dyed scarves and outstanding work of other fiber artists.

This year Chris will demonstrate her method of warp painting so you will be able to see her lovely woven pieces ‘from start to finish’.  When we visit Chris we can get a full appreciation of a well set up and well thought out work area for a fiber artist and how she integrates that work area into her everyday life.

I appreciate Chis’ support and mentoring of other younger fiber artists and her willingness and enthusiasm for fiber arts in Maine.  Her enthusiasm is infectious.

Now is the time to join FiberME 2015 and look forward to visiting Chris and others on Tuesday, August 4th in Sedgwick.  She will be our first stop of the day and she will also join us for lunch so everyone has more opportunity to get to know her.

Don’t forget – the early bird price of $750 for FiberME 2015 is only available until April 30th.  May 1st, the price goes up to $825.00.  Don’t miss your chance to save!

Spring fever reliever – Apologies for re-send

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 Posted in General News, On Sale | 2 Comments »


March, oh March. It’s dragging on a little long here in Maine. Case in point? When we first tried to send this newsletter our server was flagged as compromised, and the send went up on flames.

While most folks will be seeing this newsletter now for the first time, we sincerely apologize to the few who are getting it twice. Thank you for your understanding! Sometimes our “do it yourself” ways come back to bite us :-)

Can we make it up to you? How about FREE US ground shipping on orders over $75 through 3/31?! Get your rigid heddle, floor loom or spinning wheel shipped for free yippee!

Grow your stash, get a swift, needle set… My goodness there are a lot of options. Whichever way your cabin fever leads you, your order of over $75 is eligible for free US Ground shipping (we choose UPS or USPS).

NOTE: despite the photo, “shipping” is not by ship. You could possibly hire Halcyon and husband Will to deliver by ship to select coastal locations… but, you know, extra charges apply :-)

Happy spring!

A blizzard of sale yarns

Monday, January 26th, 2015 Posted in General News, On Sale | No Comments »

Take advantage of great savings on sale yarns. You’ll find a little bit of this and a little bit of that. In some cases, they’re yarn lines being discontinued and in others cases they’re specific colors within a yarn line being discontinued. That means we’re still carrying the yarn, but the individual colors being highlighted will no longer be available. Quantities are limited so take advantage of these savings while they’re still around! Because we often have anywhere from 2 to 20 skeins, don’t hesitate to give us a call (just not Tuesday, Jan 27th, due to the, er, real blizzard), 1-800-341-0282, if you need a certain quantity for a specific project.

All sales final. These are discontinued yarns and/or colors for which we cannot take back orders. No additional discounts apply. Limited stock available.
