Sponsor Post: Wooly Wonka Weekend April 15/16 at Knit Locally

Come to Knit Locally April 15th and 16th for a wild and woolly weekend as we welcome Anne Podlesak, the creative genius of Wooly Wonka Fibers. Anne has just published her first book: FREE SPIRIT KNITS, filled with beautiful and wearable designs. The book's garments will be on display.

On Friday, April 15th, from 4 -7 pm, we host Anne for a wine and cheese reception/book signing. There is no charge for this event.

On Saturday, April 16th, from 10 am to 12:30 pm, Anne leads a COLOR THEORY class, working with samples of her hand-dyed yarns. Overcome your fear of color and learn how to select colors that pop! Class limited to 8 participants - we may add a second class from 2 - 4:30 pm. Take the class and enjoy 20% off all Wooly Wonka yarns that day. This class would be equally valuable for any crafter, beader or quilter. So grab a friend and register by emailing Class is $55, prepayment is required, and will be held on the 2nd floor of Knit Locally.


KNIT LOCALLY'S HUGE WINTER CLEARANCE IS GOING STRONG.  Many winter yarns and some discontinued spring/summer yarns are 50% off.  Grab these bargains, including:

Sea Colors  40%

All these heavy worsted and bulky yarns are 50% off:

9th Annual Thank You Post!

Thank you for another great Yarn Party!

We had a really great time today and want to thank everyone who came and participated, despite the chilly weather! We had visitors from as far away as Louisiana, California, and the Philippines! Especially awesome this year: almost no line, and a nice steady stream of visitors throughout the day - thanks for your patience in accommodating the event before ours; everything went super smoothly.

Our generous sponsors:
Door prize donors:
Our talented vendors:
All of our vendors make their own products in some way, whether that means raising the animals, dyeing the fiber, spinning the yarn, or crafting bags, jewelry, or pottery by hand in small batches. You can find profiles of each of the vendors on our blog, with links to their websites.
Our wonderful volunteers:
We couldn’t do this without you and truly appreciate all your hard work helping spread the word and ensuring everything comes together on the day of show.
Our teachers:
Our selection committee, who have the difficult job of narrowing down the applicants to fit our space.

TAPS and Alternative House project and yarn donors and everyone who stopped by the charity tables to work a few rows on our scarves.

And everyone who came to shop and socialize and learn and be awesome together!

Please share your photos on Facebook and Ravelry!

We’ll see you next year for big # 10!

-Jess, Paula, Corrine, Lindsay, Theresa, and Cybele

9th Annual Homespun Yarn Party - Today's the Day!

Roads are clear and it's warm and dry inside the mill.  Come party with us!

Here's a round up of information about this year's event:

Where: Historic Savage Mill - 8600 Foundry Street, Savage, MD 20763

When: Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 12-5pm

Admission is FREE!

As a reminder, there will be another event happening at the Mill before ours - carpool if you can and come later in the day to avoid the crowds.  We promise there will still be great yarn, fiber, prizes and other treasures.  We recommend parking in the West lot (at the far end of the mill), and you can usually find street parking in the neighborhood within a few streets.

We're excited and we hope you are too.  See you soon!

2016: Yarn Hero!

Yarn Hero 1

(Formerly Yarn Rescue)

I like to call myself a free-spirit crafter. I don't follow the rules, take notes, or let the technical aspects weigh me down. My subconscious takes over when I'm in creative mode. However at the same time, my yarns are practical, ready for you to create your own masterpiece.
