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...

Merger

Our newest shop pattern (currently only available to our in-store customers) features a simple play on stripes. Two skeins of Rowan Colourspun are knit on the bias, merging and striping near the halfway point. The cowl is started with a provisional cast on, knit flat then grafted into a loop at the...
