Raffles, discounts on select merchandise and more! We are putting together some small instructional classes as well, so stay tuned!
A little bit about Sarah from Wuthering Sheep - IG @wutheringsheep
Sarah is the maker, creative mind, and owner of Wuthering Sheep. The company started as a need for a practical project bag for Sarah's then current knitting project. Not only practical, but something fun to look at both inside and out. How many cat bags have been made with mice fabric inside? The company's newest bag, the Sock Sack, was again born from the need of something practical. These bags are perfect for two-at-a-time sock projects and fit inside almost any other bag, making them perfect for commuting. When Sarah is not sewing, she is either knitting, reading or dreaming about British cheese.
Here’s a pic of her Roly Poly bags - squeeee so cute!
A little bit about Renée from BunnyBadger Fibers - IG @bunnybadgerfibers
Renee Jones is the founder of and creative force behind BunnyBadger Fibers. Her adventures in the fiber arts world began as a child with sewing and quilting. The passion quickly spread to crochet and ultimately knitting, which is where she established her skills as a sought-after, devoted instructor. But it was after winning her first spinning wheel that her life truly changed and she launched her own business and began sharing her love of all things fiber with the rest of the world. Through BunnyBadger, Renee has taught at knitting shops in the Chicagoland area as well as fiber festivals and other events throughout the US. You can find her blog online at BunnyBadgerFibers.com and on Instagram @BunnyBadgerFibers.
Here is a pic of some of her yarn - YUMMY!
