Knit Locally is thrilled to announce our first fiber festival!

Yarn Gala will feature trunk shows from 8 fabulous indie dyers that you can’t find at any other local shops or the many other fiber festivals in this area.

Each dyer will have a large selection of hand-dyed luxury yarns in a variety of weights. They will also send shawl and garment samples for your inspiration!

Yarn Gala is a weekend fiber festival, with the year-round support and camaraderie of our shop, such as our weekly knit night and project clinic!

2018 Theme: Purls and Gems

Our Yarn Gala this year celebrates the elegance of luxury yarns! This is an in-store event, so no need to worry about the weather, insects, or long walks that are a staple of outdoor fiber festivals. We will have several custom colorways celebrating the theme that will be exclusive to the event. The VIP swag bag includes everything you need for a knitter’s night out (or crochet!) and many of the items are exclusive to the event!

Meet the Dyer in Person: Traveling Yarn

Celebrity sighting! — We are ecstatic that Sarah of Traveling Yarn is able to join us in person at the event! It is so exciting to meet the creative mind behind the gorgeous yarns, and put together color combinations with her help! Come and say hello to Sarah all weekend.

Traveling Yarn is a hand-dyed yarn company, consisting of two distinct lines of artisan yarn by Sarah Wharton in Phoenix, Arizona. Her flagship line, Less Traveled Yarn, features colorways that cross the spectrum – from subtle tonals to brightly speckled and variegated, with fun and creative names to match! Her brand new line, Proclamation Fibers, combines natural fiber and organic dyes to create colorways that will make you swoon.
