Rowan Trunk Show
Northwest Wools is excited to host a trunk show full of spectacular Rowan garments from Friday, November 16, through Saturday, November 24th.
In addition to the shop models we normally have on hand, we’ll also have additional garments sent to us from Rowan. These special models will include sweaters, wraps and accessories made from a number of Rowan yarns, including Kid Classic, Felted Tweed, Alpaca Classic and Valley Tweed. All of the models are from their Fall 2018 line, and patterns are available in Rowan books and magazines on sale at Northwest Wools.
Don’t miss this opportunity to admire, touch and try on some of the fabulous items we usually just admire on the pages of Rowan Magazine!
Calling all Weavers! Tired of weaving scarves and table runners? Then join us for this specialty class to learn how to turn your handwoven fabrics into easy-living, freestyle clothing with little or no sewing. Yowza!
This class is inspired by the latest trend of SAORI weaving and creates very chic and fun clothing. Wouldn’t you love to turn your woven material into a vest, shrug, or jacket? Come learn in this hands-on class led by Weavers Anna Conway and Peg Silloway. You may bring your own handwoven lengths of fabric to experiment with or watch and learn from others.
All attendees will receive a handout with suggested website, books and catalogs for inspiration and follow-on reading. Information will also include suggested woven amounts for different types of garments, as well as suggested yarns that will inspire creativity and lead to successful results.
Please call Northwest Wools at 503-244-5024 to register, or stop by in person.
