So, we have a little something special to share…our head yarn pusher, Deb, has created this lovely crocheted shawl in honor of Local Yarn Shop Day! The yarn is from Cassie at @bigskyyarnco – her Southern Belle Collection. Now…we don’t have a name for this shawl…this is where you all come in. We are running a “Name That Shawl” contest, now through 4/24. Here are the rules: 1) Follow us on Instagram and Facebook. 2) Post your entry here. 3) Share with your friends and fellow crocheters so they can enter too.
We will select the winner and announce on LYS Day! Winner will receive a kit to make the shawl and a super awesome goodie bag from us at Bliss Yarns. Thank you so much for participating! Here are a few bits of info to help with ideas…
Colorways used – Peach Tea, Petit Fours, Hoop Skirt and Bliss. And, a happy side note…the entire Southern Belle Collection from Big Sky Yarn Co will be available in the shop on April 27! Bliss Yarns

We’re doing the Indigo Dye Workshop from 9-2

WORKSHOP: Dyeing to Knit the Blues! 
Discover the magic of indigo, nature’s most soulful blue as you dye yarn for your own textile creations! We will be hosting local dyer Jan Quarles on Saturday, April 27th from 9 -2 for an indigo dye class. You’ll learn about the history of this magic blue and prepare and dye your own yarn for a project.  Drinks will be provided, you can either bring a sack lunch or pre-order a boxed lunch from Sweet T’s (about $8).
Cost for the workshop is $95 per person and includes: instruction, class handouts, gloves, all dying supplies, and one skein of Merino fingering weight sock yarn. Additional sock yarn … fingering weight skeins, mini skeins and sock blanks … will be available for purchase throughout the day. Class is limited to 12, and you must prepay to reserve your spot (we currently have 6 spaces remaining). Stop by or call the shop to register … 615.952.0110, or message us here with your phone number, we’ll call you back quick as we can!
We have special LYS Day yarns from several of our vendors (and some new ones!) Dream in Color (with 2 special LYSDay patterns free with yarn purchase), Mountain Colors’ new tweed yarn kits, Koigu’s LYSDay colorway (“Deep South”) and their LYS Pencil Boxes (these are pretty well irresistible), Brew City Yarns LYSDay colorway and a few of their kits. Jan will have her indigo pieces for sale again and we’ll have cookies and door prizes ($25 purchase required to register for the door prizes, cookies are first come, first served).  Free pdf patterns from KnittingFever’s online library (Ella Rae, Noro, Juniper Moon, Euro Yarns, Araucania, Queensland, Mirasol, Elsebeth Lavold) with yarn purchase.
