Spring! April 23 2014, 0 Comments

There is so much stirring around the shop with the Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival,  Mother's Day, and the Copper River Salmon Season just a few weeks from their opening day... and then, right around the corner, here comes graduations, summertime, seining, wildflowers and our very own Net Loft Fiber and Friends event. 

So...first things first.  The Shorebirds are headed our way (hooray!) and Shelly has been very hard at work creating her latest limited edition Shorebird yarn.  We are loving her artistry and interpretation of our 2014 theme and inspiration for this year's event.  She has also dyed fiber for us for spinners, felters and needlefelter in this same limited edition colorway.

 Thursday May 8,  6 pm 

We will be having an evening of Shorebird Crafts and a launching/unveillng of...

Net Loft's 2014 Shorebird Snow Capped limited edition colorway 

 You  will LOVE this COLOR when you see it.  Shelly is truly a yarn artist.

 

MEANWHILE... we have lots of wonderful new products coming to the shop including new Petunia Pickle Bottom, Amy Butler  Bags, and some wonderful surprises perfect for spring gifting.

We are also looking forward to our knitalong for the next three weeks with Gudrun and the upcoming Knitalong on May 14 with Mary Jane Mucklestone. Kits may be picked up at the shop or online .

If you have some of our quartet sets that you have purchased from us in the past, you can just purchase a skein of Dale Falk or Heilo and you will be set.

It has been great fun visiting with our upcoming instructors and doing these small projects together.  We hope you can join us whether or not you are able to attend the event in June.

 

We hope you are enjoying the signs of the return of spring where ever you may be. It is a time of awakening and the stirrings of life all around us. The sounds and the smells and the sights of this time of year somehow stir something deep within. The beautiful green of fresh new growth, the thawing of the land, and the sounds of water flowing and life reemerging.  It is the fresh start of spring and all the hope of the season to come.  Nothing can stop it. Nothing can hold it back. Look and listen.

All the best to you from all of us at The Net Loft,

Happy Spring.
