Yet more exciting deliveries have landed on our door step this week!

We have been kept busy with our regulars popping in, loads of new faces discovering all the colour on our shelves plus wrapping & packing of all of our online orders each day.

The change of season is always an exciting time in store as we transition from our lovely Summer yarns into warmer Autumn ones.

This weeks newsletter is full to the brim…grab a hot cup of tea or coffee & settle in!

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

The lovely Maureen popped in with a couple of projects to share this week.

First up is Drifting by Cecily Glowik MacDonald.



I have a special soft spot for this project as Maureen has used some of my hand-dyed yarn. The shop has been so busy of the past couple of years that I haven’t had a moment to get the dyepots out but this certainly has my fingers itching to play with the colours!

Maureen has also finished a sunny Paper Lanterns by Sara Gresbach in our Cascade 128 Superwash Chunky.


Hard to believe but my wardrobe required yet another Liesl by Ysolda Teague, this time in black. I have used our Cascade Ultra Pima once again.

I have a special occasion to attend this weekend and with the unpredictable weather we have at this time of year I wanted a little something to go over my dress.



Fibre Fest

From 1 to 3 March 2013, QLD Spinners Weavers & fibre Artists Ltd’s, biennial exhibition will again be celebrating excellence in all fibre arts.

While the diverse techniques on display are based in tradition, the directions contemporary artists take them in are anything but old fashioned.

Spinning, weaving, dyeing, felting, knitting, crochet, braiding, basketry, papermaking and bookmaking – they are all represented and you’ve never seen anything like them before.

In addition to the exhibition there will be a gallery shop and demonstrations catering to all ages with activities for the younger visitors.

An opening event will be held at 6:30pm Friday 1 March 2013.

Further details can be found at: qldspinners.org.au or by contacting fibrefest@qldspinners.org.au
