Madrona Fiber Arts Festival and Winter!
Madrona Fiber Arts Festival is next weekend. If you have not heard it will be the last time this wonderful celebration of fiber arts will be happening. Suzanne and Corny have decided that they are ready to retire and move on.
I have heard that John Malarkey (weaver extraordinaire) is going to run some sort of fiber event at the sane time and in the same place. It will be interesting to see how that manifests.
I have loved being a part of Madrona and having such a wonderfully well run and loved fiber event so close to home. I have met so many great people and learned so much from the teachers, vendors, students and form Suzanne and how she ran Madrona. She has such a big heart and it shows in how people feel about Madrona.
I am sad at this ending but understand the need to move on. I made a special colorway based on the color of the Madrona tree that has been the logo for years now. I don’t mind telling you that it was not an easy one to translate on to yarn but I feel like I got it! Whatcha think?
The Fiber Gallery will have our yarns as they have for the past few years. So do check out their booth!!
We have not one but two brand new designs from the oh so talented Meaghan Schmaltz ~The Unapologetic Knitter. She has designed a lovely everyday kind of cardigan all cozy and warm perfect for these snowy winter days we are having!
The Everyday Cardigan by Meaghan Schmaltz knit in our Silky Victoria in the colorway Motley Huu
And… if that was not enough she’s also designed this lovely wrap, Back on Track Shawl, knit in both our soon to be discontinued BFL Sport ( colorway: Mica) and our Silky Victoria ( colorway: Cranberry Bogged).

Safe travels to all of you going. It looks like we are going to have some intense winter weather for the next week. We most definitely have our share here already which is going to make work this week a little challenging.
Shipping Update: We are still playing catch up. We’ve started shipping out the last shipment of the 2018 RSC and our online order for STRL including the Anniversary Trios. We are also working on the Color Club and the last skein of the School of Yarn. It’s a lot.
Our BFL Sport Special was a HUGE success and we are doing out very best dyeing these also as we catch on on previous orders now that we have the sock yarn coming in. It’s a whole lot of juggling, it makes my head hurt! I know I have said many times but I am going to say it again because it is true. All of us here at Blue Moon appreciate your support and patience but no one more than myself. It has been beyond stressful and quite honestly scary. Now that the yarn is flowing in it has put us in one dye crunch to catch up and stay current . So we are going to ask you to hang in with us for a wee but longer.
The Vancouver Shawl KAL will be at the end of February so we have time to get you your yarn. I am hoping that the weather does not change that but I will keep you posted.
I did something that I have wanted to do for awhile now in order to support more of my creative vision and self and to build on our Blue Moon community. Coloring inside and outside the lines!!! Check it out! If have ideas about what you would like to see there please do let me know. The video aspect will be the most challenging for me on a personal level but I also think real fun!!!
A reminder of the specials that are going on right now.
BFL Sport: The price that you see on the website it the marked down price and we are almost out and when it is gone it is gone.
Seduction: Same is true with our Seduction yarn. Price marked is the sale price and it good while supplies last
Panda: Is a new yarn we are considering adding to our line of yarns. We are on the fence and are hoping for your input. The price you see is an introductory price.
Targhee Bulky: Unfortunately another yarn that is being discontinued by the mill. I know…it’s super sad. On this one there is a code to use. TGB19 15% off.
Okay that is all for now. I have get a newsletter out and shovel some snow.
Stay safe and warm.
Isn’t it awesome that we have wool and knitting!!
