Santa Clara, CA, Feb 19-22, 2015
I'm in the process of moving house & shop, and am thrilled to be back in San Luis Obispo!
There were a lot of changes in 2014, as I re-thought my goals for Alpenglow Yarn and dyeing in general. I re-discovered my love of electronics and engineering, and have been working on a new line of products - tools for hand dyers. The first one I've come out with is the SkeinMinder - check it out! Indie dyers who use motorized skein winders - this one is especially for you. It automates your existing winder, and revolutionizes your workflow.
For those of you who love the brilliant colors I've naturally dyed over the years - do not fear! There will be more yarn! Another thing I realized is that I really love sharing the process and experience of natural dyeing, and I love tinkering to create different colors. So I've decided to change from the more normal dyer model of offering several bases and several colors, and instead provide the more personal experience of limited edition dyer's clubs. Each will be a themed exploration of an aspect of natural dyeing, and members will receive both yarn and detailed dye notes. I did the first dyer's club this fall, take a peek at the Mythical Blue-Red!
Thank you to everyone who has supported Alpenglow Yarn in the past - I couldn't have done it without your oooohs and aaaaahs and encouragement! I'm looking forward to these new directions, and I hope you are too.
Happy New Year!
