Stardust Fiber Studio Trunk Show
Stardust Fiber Studio is Rebecca and Emerald, best friends who are just getting started, but we already love what we've seen so far! They blend the art of magick and the art of dyeing into their work so that each skein is created with intention - and the results are just lovely.
World Wide Knit in Public Day
World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 and began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. WWKIPDAY is unique, in that it’s the largest knitter run event in the world. In 2005, there were about 25 local events around the world and in 2016, there were 1015 registered events in 57 countries!

All Wound Up Chemo Hat Drive
Under the guidance of a beloved friend who is personally battling cancer, All Wound Up is starting a Chemotherapy Hat drive, to benefit two local cancer centers in the Edmonds area. Charity Makers are encouraged to knit hats of all sizes for men and women. Please only use cotton or bamboo yarns (no acrylic or animal fibers). You may drop off your hats at All Wound Up. We currently have a few donated skeins available for pick up!
Don't have time to make a hat?
Become a Charity Donor! Purchase a skein of Bamboo Pop DK for the shop. We will give it to a Charity Maker who can knit or crochet a hat for the drive.
