Are you ready?

This year's Yarn Along the Rockies is going to be fabulous!  

Matching stitch markers to collect from each shop

Free Patterns

Wait till you see this year's Tote!  It's sooo great!!

Prizes, Prizes and more Prizes!

New this year for Yarn Along the Rockies, The Fourteener Shawl! The Fourteener is a pre-crawl pattern available NOW at all participating Yarn Along the Rockies crawl shops! Just purchase your yarn at one of the shops and the pattern is free! Wear your finished shawl during the crawl to show it off and tag it with #fourteenershawl. We can't wait to see what colors you choose! 

Both the knit and crochet versions use 400 yards each of a fingering weight and mohair.
Our Kindred Spirit Braids from Alpaca Yarn Company are PERFECT ;-)
Ours is done! Come in and check it really is so light and airy and soft - and since we used brushed alpaca as the "mohair" component of it - it is extra soft and silky... Some of us are sensitive to mohair and really this yarn is so different!

Week of July 28, 2019 โ€“ Egyptian Applique

Last week Kay Lee gave a wonderful presentation (sharing her collection of several dozen pieces) of Egyptian Applique at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Study Group. 
She has had the opportunity to travel to Egypt several times and to England to collect the works of the Cairo Tentmakers.  She mentioned they are also available online.  This first picture is full of vivid color and it shows the incredible applique as well as embroidery work.  Some of these pieces are made to sell to tourists so they are the size that you can hang on the wall.  But the original work hundreds of years ago was made to decorate and become the walls of the tents where they lived.

This second picture shows Kay holding a very old piece of work showing figures of men and their animals.  The amazing part of their applique is that it is worked on heavy canvas.  Often the stitching does not even come through to the back because it gets buried in the thick canvas.

Some of the pieces are pictorial and tell an old folk tale that was repeated to their children.  This one with the man and child and donkey has a great story to go with it, reading from right to left.

Some of the pieces will portray an animal as this horse is above.  If you notice, his body is filled in with what looks like black filling squiggles, but it is actually continue reading...
