Fibre fans! Do not miss this opportunity to view, visit and purchase yarns and fibre from Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works. Sarah is a talented dyer and fibre artist who works out of Rossland, British Columbia. Sarah is taking “the long way home” on her summer fibre festival circuit and will be stopping in at River City Yarns for a two day pop up shop.

Come out and squish the lovely yarns and feel and see the beautiful hand dyed fibres that Sarah is bringing with her. The pop up shop hours will be 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, July 10 and Thursday, July 11. You can purchase one-of-a-kind yarns and fibres directly from the dye artist!

And, on Wednesday evening, Sarah will be teaching a Drop Spindle Spinning class from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. She’ll provide the drop spindle and the gorgeous fibre for you to create your own handspun art yarn. On Thursday evening, Sarah will be teaching a class on Circular Tapestry Weaving also from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. You’ll create a beautiful, circular tapestry using the kit Sarah will provide. You’ll learn how to make a beautiful wall hanging and bring out your inner artist. Click on the links to register for these great classes!

About Sarah Elizabeth:

Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works is an independent business based in Rossland, British Columbia. Sarah Elizabeth’s unique fibre offerings come from a deeply rooted desire to fuel change and help build a more sustainable future:

“I aim to use only the highest quality fibres and yarns in my creations; from hand processed and dyed fibre supplies to one of a kind fashions, I have hand-selected my raw materials from all over the world. I work hard to make conscious purchasing decisions that recognize a need for strong local, regional and global trade practices that in turn promote resilient economies throughout the world. I focus on purchasing fleece from small scale farms, minimally processed fibre and yarns from eco friendly mills with good working conditions and, in general, from suppliers that have a strong focus on community.

I want each and every customer to feel like they are a part of something bigger than just the fibre, yarn or fashion item that they purchase. A conscious purchase from Sarah Elizabeth Fibre works is a full circle connection; to the farm, to the fibre, to the mill, to the fabric, to the people involved in the process, to the natural world.”
