Behind the Skeins
Graphic Dyeworks Launch Party!
Wednesday September 18 - 5-9 p.m.
If you follow our social media, you know we’ve been dropping little hints about something we are SO EXCITED about! Over the last few months we’ve been working with Kate Howland, a local Grand Rapids yarn dyer and creative spirit behind Graphic Dyeworks. In September we will begin carrying her small-batch, hand-dyed yarns!
To celebrate our happy collaboration, we are having a launch party where you can meet Kate and be the first to get your hands on her beautiful yarns. (Seriously, friends, this is some GORGEOUS yarn.) We will have samples of projects we’ve been working on and you’ll have a chance to sign up for the October Shawl KALS which will feature the Graphic Dyeworks Crystallographic Collection.
Mark your caledars and be sure to join us at this special event!
