• Handmaiden Yarn Tasting

We had so much fun launching “Crochet Me” that we’ve already planned another event. On Tuesday, November 20, 6-9 p.m., in Point Grey, we’ll host the Main Maiden, Jana Dempsey. Jana runs Handmaiden Fine Yarn, the Fleece Artist line for sumptious fibres, here in Vancouver. She creates gorgeous skeins of luscious cashmere, silk, camel and sea silk, all lovingly hand-dyed in small batches.

Jana will bring some sample skeins for swatching, she’ll talk about the heavenly Handmaiden yarns and show off a few garments. Then we’ll have a little sample sale of some of her discontinued yarns and other bits and bobbles from the Handmaiden studio. Yes, you heard me right, a Handmaiden sample sale. Only in Vancouver, folks. There will also be snacks, beverages and door prizes. Be sure to bring your needles (2.5 – 4.5mm) so you can taste the yarn.

We’re charging a $5. admission fee for this event. To register, please send us an email, phone us at 604-228-1122 or drop by one of the stores. We hope you can join us!

    I’m knitting a little something with sea silk right now (I LOVE that yarn)! Sounds like a fun event (calculating if I can get there…)
