Coming Home to the Homespun Yarn Party

CraftyWineaux aka Christopher with Rowan Bunneh

Yarn connoisseurs local to Maryland and Washington DC have attended a free event, the Homespun Yarn Party held at the beautifully restored Savage Mill in Maryland since 2009. For the past 3 years, I have been involved with this wonderfully-held secret. For only on a Sunday from the hours of 12 noon to 5 PM, attendees get first dibs on hand-dyed, handspun, or handmade fibery treats before all the springtime wool festivals and knitting conferences begin. Besides great door prizes, there are free classes to teach knitting, crochet, wheel spinning, and drop spindling. The bakery and restaurants have delectable bites and hearty beers. Plus both sisters-in-real-life Noni Patterns and JUL (of the gorgeous knitting accessories, shawl pins and sticks) have their shops at the mill. If you are interested in attending, Christopher (aka CraftyWineaux) and I will be leaving early Sunday morning to arrive around 11 AM. The line to get in starts forming around 10 AM. Here’s hoping you can join us in some stash enhancement you cannot get in our local yarn shops! =:8
