Local Yarn Store Day is a nationwide, brick-and-mortar yarn shop appreciation day created by The National Needlearts Association. Join us Saturday, April 27th for a day of celebrating the fiber arts community and your very own local yarn shop with raffle prizes throughout the day, new products, kits, and discounts throughout the shop! Here’s a little sneak peek of what we’ve got in store for you on this 2nd annual celebration of local yarn shops around the country:
Introducing Knitting Nomad!
We’re are super excited to introduce to you our newest indie-dyer and Bend, OR local small business, Knitting Nomad! Mary and Jessica – the two creative masterminds behind this micro-brand full of soft, colorful goodness – are dyeing up small batches of bright, richly colored superwash yarns, plied and unplied, with sparkles and without, from fingering to worsted weights. Come meet your newest favorite yarn, landing at Fancywork on Local Yarn Store Day!
New Marls from Brooklyn Tweed!
Mix thing up for Spring with new marls from Brooklyn Tweed and a new hat pattern from Jared Flood! Knit Skipp with two skeins of Loft in single or two-color brioche in beanie, slouchy, or watch cap style. Grab two of your favorite skeins of Loft and we’ll give you a FREE copy of Skipp to go with it.
NEW Fancywork Yarn Shop Project Bags!
Show your love for your LYS with our brand new, hot-off-the-press logo project bags from Fancywork. Bold and graphic, bright and cheerful, these 100% organic cotton bags are screen-printed locally right here in Bend.
Meet “Something About Phoenix,” Ewe Ewe Yarns’ exclusive LYS Day 2019 pattern, offered free in-store with your purchase of Ewe So Sporty! With just four skeins of this sport weight, superwash merino, this shawl combines stripes and color for a project that is easy on the wallet, quick to knit, and fun to wear. We’ll have grab-and-go kits on hand or choose from Ewe Ewe’s full range of bright and cheerful colors to create your own combo!
Whip up a pair of Sanborn Socks in one of our favorite yarns, Blue Sky Fibers’ Woolstok. Knit from the top down in 100% Highland Peruvian Wool, the Sanborn Socks are extremely soft and warm on your feet. This intermediate pattern is written for both women’s and men’s sizes. Pick your two favorite colors and cast on. Pattern is free with your purchase of Blue Sky Fibers’ Woolstok.
Bend locals, Dave and Leah Naftalin, have continued to pursue their search for the perfect alpaca fiber. Focusing on excellent animal husbandry and nutritional care for their sweet alpacas and Jacob sheep, this local family farm is making huge strides and we’re super proud of them for all their hard work! The herd has grown and so has our stock of beautiful naturally colored, undyed Nafatland yarn, including a buttery new 80/20 blend of Huacaya alpaca and merino wool that will make you purr with delight!
Becky Smith has been on a creative bent this year thinking up all the way you can bling up your knitting and crochet projects. From artisan freshwater pearl & silver or copper stitch markers to hand-wrought necklaces and earrings, each piece is crafted with care to be as functional as they are beautiful.
Just a Little Charm
Show your love for Bend with a piece of our town’s history. Copper charm stitch markers upcycled from the copper flashing from the old Bend Bulletin roof! Made right here in Bend.
Toots LeBlanc & Co.
Snatch up the last of the Toots! Toots LeBlanc has had an amazing run of 30 years in business but it’s time for the next chapter to begin. While our yarn-addicted hearts are heavy for the loss of this amazing yarn, we wish Michele all the best in what comes next. We’ve got all the remaining stock at Fancywork so hop on in for a final fix of this fluffy angora/merino blend.
