Dear Fiber Artists,  

Spring is here, and with it comes a series of new collaborative projects and artistic events for you to participate in! 🌦🌱

Continue reading for a brief overview of Forgotten Fiber Trunk Show, our Community Art Installation, Local Yarn Store Day, new Knit Along, classes and more. Prefer to listen instead? Watch Carolyn's update on Facebook Live. 

Forgotten Fiber Trunk Show

Forgotten Fiber Trunk Show is here for another week! In-store, we have fingering, DK, and worsted weights in vibrant colors and kits. 

Make sure to stop in and check out the gorgeous samples before we send it back on the April 1st--and no, I'm not joking...

Instructors Wanted!

We are looking for teachers—local to the Boise area—with a variety of crafting skills to join our teaching team.

Potential instructors could teach classes in macramé, embroidery, dye techniques, crochet, felting, and other textiles arts. This is a wonderful opportunity to become more involved in the fiber art community of the Treasure Valley. 

If you or someone you know is interesting in applying, send us an inquiry with resume and professional skillset to stephanie@twistedeweidaho.com.

Community Art Installation

We're so excited to debut a new community art project in partnership with the Idaho Wool Grower's Association! 
Together, we're creating a large community art project for our annual fiber arts festival--the Fiber Frolic.

Anyone is invited to contribute to this project by creating fiber art squares. Schools and senior centers are participating as well. More information can be found here. Please read and contact us at fiberfrolic@twistedeweidaho.com if you know of a group or community who is interested in participating and receiving Fiber Art Boxes with supplies and educational info.

Local Yarn Store Day

Local Yarn Store Day is coming up on April 17th. LYS day is a specific day to support brick and mortar yarn shops and enjoy yarn crawls! Last year, LYS day was skipped over during the start of the Pandemic. But this year it's back on the calendar, and we are ready for a fun weekend. 

Alexandra from Alexandra the Art of Yarn is brewing a terrific batch of yarn, specific for LYS day. She will be our special remote guest on Thursday's Facebook Live of that week, where she'll talk to Carolyn about what she's been up to in the last year. Alexandra is an incredible artist and story teller--you won't want to miss this live! 

April Knit Along - Chic Poncho

"You know me, I love me a poncho" Carolyn confesses in a brief videoexplaining Cindy's new Knit Along in April, the Chic Poncho, by Yumiko Alexander

More exciting events are in the planning phases. April will be dedicated to ironing out outdoor workshops, classes, and events. The Twisted Staff has scheduled a day to clean out our big shed (behind the Twisted Ewe) which will provide an open-air meeting space. 

In addition, tickets for the Spring Tangle go on sale on April 5th. The event will be on Sunday, May 2nd, with more details to come.

Thank you so much for reading. As always, stay twisted out there.
