Newsletter #1

[I haven't set up the mailing list yet, but this news was too exciting not to share. If you would like shop updates via email, drop me a line at dyeabolicalyarns at gmail dot com.]

Knitorious is in the Riverfront Times and so am I!
Knitorious was nominated for the Best St. Louis yarn store in this week's Best Of edition. In the blurb about Knitorious, Dyeabolical Yarns is given a great mention. Many thanks to Suzy of Lucky Find Gazette for the great review of the store.

My first in-print mention ever is a great way to kick off a month worth of firsts.
  • This weekend I will have my first booth at the Strange Folk Festival on both Saturday and Sunday. Strange Folk is the Heartland's largest outdoor indie arts and crafts show. There will be 120 makers from across the country, plus food, activities for kids and music.
  • I will be having my first trunk show at Knitorious in the evening of Wednesday October 1. We will also be celebrating Knitorious's RFT nomination with a party starting at 6. Wear your tiara! No, I'm not kidding. Yes, I will be wearing a tiara.
  • I am sharing a booth with Ambercastle Arts at the first What's On Watson fair will be on October 18 from 10-4 on Watson Rd near the shop. I will be at the booth or at Knitorious the whole day.
  • I will have yarns and roving for sale for the first time at the Weavers Guild sale October 31-November 1. I will be there demonstrating knitting and spinning both Friday and Saturday morning and early afternoon. Even if you aren't a fiber artist, this is a great event to get holiday shopping done. There are a lot of wearables, art, hand woven baskets and jewelry.
I hope to see you at one (or more) of these events. If you cannot make it, yarns and fibers can be purchased through my etsy shop or Knitorious. Starting soon items will also be available for purchase through www.dyeabolicalyarns.com, too!

Thank you for all of your support this year!
