Drop-in project help is now OPEN again! We have a few hours each week set aside for these opportunities, and they’re reserved on a first-come / first-serve basis. Whether you want to learn a new craft, get help with a specific project, or take one of our standard classes as a one-on-one lesson, we can make that happen.
Alternating weeks of virtual and in-person socialization:We’ll have virtual socials during the weeks of May 9 and May 23; in-person social nights will be held on May 4, May 18, and June 1. We’re still requiring physical distancing and masks at our in-person socials; please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on, and be prepared for the weather! If the weather is nasty enough to make sitting outside impossible, we’ll cancel the event that week - stay tuned to our social media channels and website for the latest information.
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.
The Tea Cozy online shop now open!

Seattle Sky Dyeworks Trunk Show
Seattle Sky Dyeworks is a local, indie dyer who's been wowing us with gorgeous color on luxurious yarn for years. As we've been doing, this will be a remote-ish trunk show - so all the pretties will be here for two whole weeks to give you plenty of time to check it out. Plus, we'll put the trunk show online for folks who want or need to keep shopping at a distance!
2:00 - 3:00pm or 5:00 - 6:00pm
Color is everywhere. It may feel uncontrolled, but there are beautiful guidelines that help us to understand what colors go together, and why. In this free online talk, Kyle Kunnecke will explore the color wheel; helping you to understand color relationships. Then, he will show how color theory can inform our choices when selecting colors for our fiber arts projects, as well as tools we can use to aid in our decision making.
This event is LIVE and will not be recorded.
