Each color on the cat's body has a different texture drawn on to look like cables, bobbles, scallops, ribbing, and other knit or crochet textures. Main text is curly and reads Yarnivore. Secondary text is plain and reads Your Happy Place

Fiber Fests, 2024 Edition!
See all the indie dyed yarn!

A new year brings another round of fiber festivals! If you’ve been to a fiber fest, like DFW or Yellow Rose, then you’ve experienced all the joy of seeing independent yarn dyers and their lovelies (aka indie yarn) and seeing everyone wearing their fabulous creations. The Yellow Rose is a notable south Texas event and their Yellow Rose on the Coast show is this weekend, February 2-3 from 10a-5p, in Port Aransas (follow the link for deets). This is the fifth annual On the Coast event; Yellow Rose will also host the 14th annual Fiber Fiesta April 26-27th in Seguin. Later this year, there will be more Texas fiber fests. DFW Fiber Fest is in late September and the Texas Fleece & Fiber Festival is in late October. If you can manage to attend any of these events, make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be ready for lots of walking or rolling.

We encourage y’all to get out and mingle with indie dyers and other crafters, have FUN!

Most of us keep bits & bobs of yarn or thread from our finished projects. If you're concerned about being able to identify a particular yarn later, you can put the yarn or thread in a clear plastic bag and label it. (We keep small, clean, reusable bags from shipped items, recycle!) If you want to use your fiber for fun, find a large clear vase or jar and show off your colors!
