A new normal in these ever-uncertain times seems to be rescheduled events. This month I was scheduled to do a trunk show at Serenity Knits in New Market. This show will be rescheduled but no date has been set as of yet. I look forward to planning another date for the show with Sheila once our current health crisis is under control. The Sunshine Fibre Festival has been rescheduled to July 25 from May 2. I am looking forward to… Read More »Rescheduled Events
It is with a sad heart that I write this post to tell you that the Toronto Knitters Frolic has been cancelled this year. The frolic organizers did not make this decision lightly. They used the information they had available to them to make the best decision possible in light of COVID-19. The organizers informed me of their decision on Sunday, March 15. Today, March 17, Doug Ford has declared a state of emergency in the province of Ontario. This… Read More »Toronto Knitters Frolic Cancelled

This past weekend we had the pleasure of being one of 80+ vendors at the KYAFF (Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival).

Two of which were Shelagh and Margaret from the Three Sisters Knit podcast on YouTube.… Read More »South Beach Yarn Co at KYAFF
While getting ready to attend the Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival, I decided to photograph some of my yarns for my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I thought it would be fun make up some ‘Find Your Fade’ combinations with my yarn. If you are planning on attending the festival I urge you to visit my booth early to get the best selection of yarn. I’m a small indie dyer and I dye my yarn in small batches. I don’t often… Read More »Find Your Fade with South Beach Yarn Co.
