Trunk shows are an opportunity to see and feel products you may not be familiar with. We often have the opportunity to display project samples made from the featured products as well!
We do not have any trunk shows scheduled for the month of December, but there are always amazing samples in the store and we highly recommend taking time to browse, squish and enjoy them!
Winter Wonderland MKAL
Designer Kay Hopkins created a mystery wrap inspired by snowy, wintry scenes and a few iconic Christmas movies.
What is a Mystery Knit Along (MKAL)?
A MKAL is an event where knitters make a project without knowing what it will look like when it is finished.
Stitch patterns relate to memorable scenes from favorite Christmas movies with quotes and recipes included. A variety of stitch patterns keep it interesting and include easy texture, simple lace, some garter, and stockinette stitch. There is no brioche, stranded, or mosaic colorwork! You can expect some repetition for relaxed knitting and a small amount of “focus up” knitting.
The final clue for the MKAL was released on December 2nd, but you can still purchase the pattern from Kay Hopkins’ directly through her Ravelry store at this link. We have kits available in gorgeous The Fibre Co Amble or you can select your own color palette!
With all the holiday festivities and incredibly busy fall we had, our team is focused on providing the best customer service possible! Check back often for new events and community happenings!
January is Mitten Month!
We will be celebrating all things mitten during January 2023! There will be classes to improve your skills, fun facts about our great state of Michigan and plenty of opportunities to support our partner Mittens for Detroit!

If you are looking to add just a touch of warmth to your projects, Mohair is a great choice and if you pair the colors just right, you will find the most unique marled fabric. From texture, airiness, and depth of color, this is the base you never knew you needed but won’t be able to live without!
We also love that this product is ethically sourced from a bio-diversity-friendly mill!
