4. Tell us about your business.
Blended Threads Workshops and Designs create opportunities to express the creative side and rejuvenate the soul. Not a typical brick and mortar store, we offer you the chance to learn a new skill or more fully develop one you already enjoy in an environment away “from it all.” Peaceful settings help you relax and soothe away some of the tangles of the modern world.
Retreats, multi-day workshops from presenters and instructors in many fiber arts disciplines as well as wellness workshops for hand crafters are the specialty of Blended Threads. Be it knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving or dyeing, there’s an event for you.
Explore 4™ on the Eastern Shore with Deborah Robson started the ball rolling in 2013. Deb will be back in October 2014 for another great week. Also in early planning stages are retreats with Donna Druchunas, Sivia Harding, and Cheryl Potter. Plans for Spring and Summer 2014 Spinning Day Out Events at local farms are coming too.
Blended Threads Designs are knitting and crochet patterns that reflect our passion for the unique beauty of natural fibers. We don’t do a lot of intricate stitch manipulations that distract the artist from the relaxation and rejuvenation of the craft, rather easy to learn and repeat patterns to soothe the spirit.
5. What's your favorite thing about owning your business?
We love getting the opportunity to work closely with the experts and bring their particular skills to small group environments - for all to share.
