More 5th birthday follies!!

We have more great news for our birthday celebration!!


First, some more details about our special Windward class!


Local designer Heidi Kirrmaier  describes her shawl “Windward” as “The multiple changes in knitting direction of this piece are akin to the maneuvering required when sailing into the wind, or windward.” As part of our 5th birthday celebration, we will have an exclusive, one time only special edition Windward kit!

Each kit contains the Windward pattern, 1.5 skeins of Julie Asselin Fino MCN, a cool leather stitch marker or scissors fob, made by local artisan King’s Leather & Lace, a Loop Loot gift certificate, and a discount code for the King’s Leather and Lace Etsy shop!


As a special birthday present to you, with purchase of this exclusive kit, you can take the two hour Windward workshop, taught by Heidi herself for $12.50!

Also, we really love our locals here at The Loop, and we are so pleased to count so many designers, fibre artists, teachers, and  creative folks among our Loopie friends. Over the course of our birthday celebration, we’re going to tell you about a while bunch of them, as well as showing off their work in the store.

We’d also like to announce that over our birthday week, we’re going to have a series of evening trunk shows featuring some local designers, and fibre artists who are going to give some short talks about their work, inspiration, or what they made, and what inspired them to make it.
