Upcoming Event: Shibui Mix Party! September 4, 2015 – Posted in: Events, Project Ideas
Join us on Friday, September 25th, from 6 pm – 9pm for our first SHIBUI MIX PARTY!
Shibui Knits is based in Portland, Oregon, a city internationally famous for creativity and the arts. Our friends at Shibui are constantly searching for unique fiber and texture combinations to include in their yarn lines. All the yarn lines are dyed in Shibui’s extensive colour palette. The result is a breadth of both colour and texture, creating yarns that are beautiful to look at and luxurious to touch. Shibui’s patterns, like their yarns, are intended to help knitters of all skill levels create beautiful, wearable pieces. They strive to develop patterns that use their yarns to their fullest extent, as well as provide classic, flattering silhouettes to wearers of all ages, shapes and sizes.
Shibui yarns are among the most beautiful on the market today. Stunning on their own, their beauty is multiplied when knit together in various combinations. In order to appreciate just how captivating and versatile these yarns are, you need to touch and play with them and experience first-hand the unique fabric and textures created through “mixing”. If you’ve wondered what knitting with multiple strands is like or if you’re curious about how Shibui yarn combinations knit up, then this Mix Party event is for you!
In addition to the many store samples we’ve created with Shibui yarns, we’ll also have a Shibui Trunk Show, the Shibui LookBook, and swatches available for reference and inspiration. Each participant will also be provided with samples of each of the Shibui yarns currently available in store (for knitting during the party). There will be light refreshments and the opportunity to win the pattern and yarn to knit Mix No. 20 (see photos below) – valued at more than $285. Finally, all participants will benefit from a 10% discount on all Shibui yarns purchased at the event!
There is a $25 nonrefundable fee for the party; if you’d like to join us for this special evening, please call the store to reserve a space: 514 486-5648.
And remember to bring your needles and a sense of adventure!
