If you are local to WEBS and are looking for some fun things to do with your fiber friends, we have plenty of events to keep you busy in June!
On Thursday, June 14th we are excited to host the book launch for our very own Leslie Ann Bestor’s book Cast On, Bind Off! Join us from 6pm – 8pm to celebrate this comprehensive collection of all of her tips and tricks for dressing up the beginning and end of every project. (Leslie Ann is also teaching some of these techniques this summer! Find out more about her classes here.)
On Tuesday, June 5th Iris Schreier will join our regular Drop-In session! Iris Schreier is the founder and designer of Artyarns, and author of One + One Scarves, Shawls & Shrugs. Stop in to meet and chat with her between 10am and 12pm and see many of the beautiful garments from the book. Then feel free to stick around for a little advice on your current project.
On Friday, June 15th we will welcome designer Ysolda Teague to the store! From 4pm to 5:30pm Ysolda will hang out in the store for a meet-and-greet after she finishes teaching her class (more information on that class here). Swing by and say hello, she’ll be happy to answer a few questions or sign your book!
And, of course, there is the I-91 Shop Hop! Eleven local yarn shops located along I-91 from Putney, VT to New Haven, CT are joining together for the second annual I-91 Shop Hop! This event is a fun way to visit new and interesting yarn shops in our area.
The I-91 Shop Hop will take place June 29th – July 1st. All participating shops will be open from 10am–6pm on Friday & Saturday and 12pm–5pm on Sunday. Find out how to purchase your passport and all of the other details here.
