We are ECSTATIC TO ANNOUNCE Claudia Hand Painted Yarns will be joining The Flying Needles for our 1st Birthday!
Located in Harrisonburg, Va., CHPYs woman-owned business has a simple philosophy: Peace, love, comfort & joy. Owner Susan Dickerson could think of no better way to celebrate than to feature a VIRGINIA hand-dyer that is featured from Coast to Coast in yarn shops across the country!
Weve got a whole THREE DAYS of action with Claudia and her divine color ways Yarn Tastings, Classes, and Trunk Show, oh MY! The fun kicks off with two seatings of Yarn Tastings from 5 to 7 pm Thursday, Oct. 12, and the second from 10 am -12 pm Friday, Oct. 13.
What is a yarn tasting, you ask? Its like a wine tasting, but with yarn. Bring your own needles or hooks and get to sample a variety of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns. Some might be new to you, some might be old favorites that you are revisiting. Either way, its a great opportunity to test run some new yarns before you commit to enough for a project. Its the best excuse in the world to play with the yarns for a very low entry price! At the Tastings end, you will take home the truffles of yarn you sampled. While you play with your yarns, Claudia will tell you about the yarn, answers your questions about guage, patterns or how the yarn is made or dyed. But the most exciting part is that you are guaranteed to see inspiration! Claudia will be bringing tons of samples knit in her yarn!
