Wren House Yarns

Wren House Yarns is a RETURNING vendor!

Wren House Yarns features hand dyed, small batch, artisan yarns. Due to the techniques used in small batch dyeing, each skein is given individual attention guaranteeing a truly unique finished product. While I mainly offer fingering weight yarns, I’ve recently added DK to the Wren House stock list. Most of my yarns are dyed with professional acid fast dyes, but I also love to use local and exotic natural dyes. You may also find a few handwoven treasures in my booth.

Good Water & Co.

Good Water and Co is a RETURNING vendor!

Good Water and Co. was born out of frustration. As a knitter frequenting public transit on trips into and out of New York City, I struggled to find a bag that would keep my yarn neat, my notions accessible, and my projects safe — while still keeping all of those other real life essentials, like my phone, wallet, and keys, close at hand.

I went through bag after bag, but nothing quite worked.

Finally, I hit my limit. I grabbed some fabric, some batting, and a pair of scissors, determined to make a bag that fit my needs.

What emerged was this: a bag made from 100% quilters grade cotton, quilted and lined with stiff interfacing for stability partnered with a removable insert featuring detachable, freestanding, yarn boxes with a grommet on top to keep things flowing smoothly. An interior pocket held my keys and wallet. Even with everything packed in, I could still find it all — and pack my project in safely.

I had a winner.

Good Water and Co. bags are designed to meet the needs of busy knitters, knitters who sneak in stitches on trains, planes, and automobiles; for knitters who like to keep things neat and tidy, who love the idea of a knitting bag, but hate the mess; for knitters who need a bag as diverse as their craft.

I believe if something your doing fuels your passion, while giving you a great sense of happiness and pride, then it’s worth doing and sharing with the world. That’s exactly why I’m here sharing with you, my art. Each batch is meticulously hand dyed or painted in small batches to ensure quality and consistency in each colorway. The colorways I create are inspired by everything I encounter in life.

Tempting Ewe Yarns

Tempting Ewe Yarns is a NEW vendor!

Two women, two dyers, one yarn company. Wae and Amanda’s dyeing styles and color choices vary enough that their dyed yarns appeal to a variety of customers. Although Wae enjoys dyeing deep and saturated colors and Amanda’s colors tend toward the lighter side, both have also been known to create colors that leave customers guessing whose dye baby they’ve fallen in love with.
