Mountain Yarns....where experiences happen
Mountain Yarns will be closed for Dec. 2, 3, 4, 5 as we will be helping host the 17th Annual Catskill Fiber Celebration. Check out our Facebook event! Open Fri, Dec. 2 3-7, Dec. 3 10-6, Dec. 4 10-5.....Please join us at the Woodstock Firehouse #4 in Zena NY. The show is comprised of 27 local Fiber Artists that have worked all year to create an abundance of items that are just in time for the cold weather and holiday gift giving! Mountain Yarns will have the store set up at the show to provide the tools for the inspiration we are sure to create!! Store will reopen on Dec. 9th at 10:00
Come inside and wander through our locally handmade items. Our girls love to create so there are always hats, scarves, fingerless mitts, shawls, handtowels etc. to dig through. Inspiration abounds here with our yarns...from the inexpensive yet worthy..to the handpainted and handspun ... our selection is sure to please you! The colors and textures just ask for your touch.
The other half is where all the excitement takes place. We inspire people to knit, crochet, rug hook and weave every day. Stop in for help with your current project or set yourself up with a new project.....knitters rarely have only one thing to work on. Sit, laugh, cry, encourage, smile, scowl, eat and drink and be merry. It is what we do. Come and join our Sat. and Sun. groups.
Color,it's what we love.
Come and see Tina's handyed yarns....Gabrajina . Every two weeks I spend my Wednesdays dying new colors for the store. They are then placed on the shelf and first come..first served. It's hard for me to put everything I dye up on the shelf. As I am dying them I envision all the projects I could make with the yarns. Since there are not enough hours in the day to do this ......I try to choose just one for my personal stash and share the rest with customers!
Spinning Fibers And Handspun Yarns
Touch my handspun yarns and don't be alarmed if you need to have it! It is a common occurance that takes place. Knitting with handspun is a treat. It may make you want to learn to spin....we can help with that also. Spinning fibers are back in stock and fleece is being dyed. I card up 8-10 groupings at a time and then begin spinning. Such pleasure!
I spend a lot of time weaving...being inspired always to do more by your requests for colors and more choices. I don't classify my work. A handtowel to me may be a dresser scarf or a placemat to you. I just weave them and let you choose the purpose. I have just recently moved my studio space into the house again....My loom and yarns has not enjoyed being flooded in my studio space twice... so I am back to work again. It was very inspiring to move the studio.....I found colors and textures I had forgotten about. Now to find enough time to create all the new ideas I have... Is sleep necessary is the question!
