Our hearts are filled with gratitude after yet another wonderful Indie Knit & Spin! A special thanks goes out to our amazing vendors and volunteers – without them, there would not be Indie Knit & Spin. We are community focused in our stewardship of Indie Knit & Spin – and it was wonderful to see so many diverse members of our fiber arts community yesterday. We look forward to seeing you all again February 23rd, 2019!



HipStrings brings together the old and new to create elegant and whimsical supplies for the fiber arts.  We offer laser etched and cut tools to bring your spinning to the next level, knitting notions to delight you, Signature blends of fiber for your next spinning or felting project, custom milled and small batch hand dyed yarns in delectable fibers and more!

Oink Pigments


Established in 2010, Oink Pigments is a purveyor of small-batch, hand-dyed yarns in Vista, CA and Indianapolis, IN. Our team (Alexa, Helena, and Julie) is a trio of strong-willed women who love pigs, puns, and purls (and parentheses). We offer 18 different yarn and fiber offerings in over 100 bright and playful colorways, and a whopping 12 of these 18 bases are 100% USA made from sheep to shelf (yes, even the sheep are Americans).

Dusty Tree

Dusty Tree is maker of soap + dyer of yarn. My soaps are palm free, vegan and handcrafted in small batches using natural colorants and essential oils. My micro batched artisan yarns are all from domestic fibers with some bases being non-superwash. I also offer liquid soaps and a no rinse wool wash perfect for blocking your woolens.

I make quality project bags, fabric baskets, rope bowls, stitch markers and crochet hooks. I like to think of my shop as project support. So you can carry your knitting, crochet or spinning around with you in style. I use fun, bright, attractive and nerdy patterns to sew a wide variety of bags.
