Meet Wendy Hanson Saturday at this one-day Pop-up Shop, and learn about her very special yarns and fibers from Shaggy Bear Farms. Wendy runs a “farm to needle” operation, managing a flock of over 400 animals, many of which are rescue animals. So your purchases not only support Wendy, but also all of these wonderful animals she has saved!

Wendy knows all of her animals by name, and sings to them as she shears them! We always enjoy listening to Wendy’s tales of life on her farm, and hearing about the various “characters” that inhabit it. Talking with Wendy is just as much fun as looking at (and touching!) the gorgeous yarns she has created!

Come check out our Shaggy Bear Pop-up shop.

Wendy’s inventory truly has something for everyone: Beautiful, vibrant colors as well as undyed, natural hues; buttery soft merino/silk blends and rugged, “crunchy” yarns. There are a variety of yarn weights to choose from, as well as a variety of fibers and fiber blends.

Spinners take note: Wendy will have lots of undyed roving from her unique breeds. This is a great opportunity to stock up on your favorite fibers!

Whether you knit, crochet, spin, felt or weave, you are bound to find something you love at this Pop-up Shop! Come on by and meet Wendy – you will learn a lot more about the life of an independent farmer and dyer.

Friday, March 6th
10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Favour Valley Woodworking will be with us Friday for a one-day Pop-up Shop. Owner Martha Sunderland is a talented woodworker dedicated to preserving and celebrating her natural environment with her handmade wood and antler buttons, toggles, shawl pins and accessories.

Martha is inspired by the traditional New England woodworking craft and the beautiful wood available in her home of Favour Valley, New Hampshire. Her goal is to provide beautiful accessories that complement all types of handwork, while at the same time protecting her environment by using sustainable materials, finishes and technologies. No animals or trees are harmed in creating her beautiful buttons, toggles and pins. They are gleaned from natural antler shedding and tree fall.

The Favour Valley Scarf Buckle has been featured in Vogue Knitting, and her Antler Buttons were showcased in the Winter 2018 issues of both Interweave Knits and Knitscene. Here at Northwest Wools, we have carried all of Martha’s beautiful hand-crafted buttons, toggles and shawl pins for several years and love the distinct look they give our fiber art projects!

Come meet Candace Wilson, the Ceramic Artist behind One of a Kind Buttons. Candace’s buttons, pins and shawl pins are truly unique. She draws all her designs by hand, then creates the stamps to produce these fabulous ceramic items which are truly “one of a kind”!

Sunday, March 10th
10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Come and meet Candace Wilson, the ceramic artist behind One of a Kind Buttons, at a one-day Pop-up Shop on Sunday. Candace will have a selection of ceramic buttons, pins, and shawl pins, as well as her popular garden birds and bird ornaments.

We are so pleased Candace created a Limited Edition Shawl Pin for our Shop’s Featured Knit Pattern, allowing us to “Put a Bird on it”!   With the Yarn Crawl’s 2019 theme of “A Walk in the Park” as inspiration, we created a knit design called “Birding the Tualatin River Refuge”.  We wanted a bird shawl pin to support this pattern and knew Candace would create something special! Each of these Knit Pattern Kits will include the yarn and pattern, as well as one of these cute Bird Shawl Pins. Yowza!

Candace draws all her designs by hand, then creates the stamps to produce these fabulous ceramic items – which are truly one of a kind. They make great gifts for your fiber-obsessed friends, as well as wonderful mementos of this year’s crawl!
