The Fiber Gallery Is For Sale

Dear Customers and Friends: It is with very mixed emotions that I’m putting The Fiber Gallery up for sale. This business has been my baby, and for 12 years I’ve watched her grow and bloom. I will miss her terribly every day. However, babies grow up and parents move on to new phases of their lives. I will be 63 at the end of this year. The store’s lease will be up for renewal at the same time, so it seems a good time to make a transition. I’m hoping to find a new owner with energy and a love of fiber arts who will continue what I’ve started and make the business even better. I’m eternally grateful to my terrific staff and my wonderful customers who’ve made the Fiber Gallery part of their lives, too. Many of you have become dear friends. Our weekly groups have become a community, and a mutual love of yarn has led to close social ties. I’m never happier than when I’m sitting at the big table listening to conversations among our smart, funny, opinionated craftswomen. Don’t be surprised if you see me around the store even after the sale – I doubt that I will be able to stay away, whether as a teacher, a part-time helper or just a customer. Meanwhile, if you’ve ever had a yen to go into business, let’s talk! The life of a yarn store owner involves hard work and not a lot of money, but your days will be filled with color and creativity. Thanks, everybody, for 12 great years!...

A Sweet Fall Knitalong

Start with a form-flattering open sweater, add a border that pops with interest, and you have the Fiber Gallery’s fall knitalong, the Sweet Root cardigan. The sweater was designed especially for us by up-and-coming designer Cory Ellen Boberg of indie.knits. A Northwest design deserves Northwest yarn, and so we paired it with Imperial Yarn’s delightful sport-weight Tracie Too. Like Imperial’s other yarns, Tracie Too is spun from the company’s own herd of Columbia sheep raised near the eastern slopes of Mount Hood. It’s light and springy and a delight to knit. The knitalong kicks off on Saturday, September 19, from 4 to 6 p.m. We’ll draw for door prizes while you cast on. Cory and other members of our staff will be here to discuss the...

Dyeing In The Street

Join us this Saturday, August 8, as we drag our dyepots out into the street and rustle up a few batches of hand-dyed yarn. If you’d like to try dyeing, dress for a mess and come anytime between noon and 5 p.m. Or just show up and watch. In addition to our demo, there will be tons going on all along Greenwood Avenue as part of the the annual Summer Streets celebration. The road will be closed from 65th to 87th streets and you can wander among concerts, performances, and other mini-events on every block. Our parking lot, off of 83rd Street, will still be open.

A Taste of Fall

It still may be toasty outside, but inside the store we’re getting set up for fall. Cory Ellen Boberg of Indie.Knits is putting the finishing touches on a brand-new design our fall knitalong sweater (more on that coming soon!) Meanwhile, stock arrives almost daily. Yesterday we received a new shipment of Good Company Wares totes and bucket baskets. They’re made in Portland and feature extra-sturdy canvas and leather handles. The day before, we received Villa, a sister yarn to the much-admired Vail, a slinky and soft alpaca-bamboo blend. While Vail is undyed, Villa features deep, saturated colors. A new batch of Malabrigo yarns is on its way, and another shipment of Madelinetosh yarns are in the dyepot right now. We can’t wait to see what comes through the door next week, ready for knitting...
