Unique Sapphire Fibre Studio is a RETURNING vendor!
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.
Fibernymph Dye Works is a RETURNING vendor!
I’m an indie yarn and fiber dyer who is heading into my eighth year of business. I specialize in creating self-striping yarns in a number of yarn weights for a wide variety of projects. Alone or paired with my semi-solids or variegates, they’re always fun to work with.
Yarn and pattern kits have become a customer favorite at shows. I bring an assortment, featuring my yarn and my own knitwear designs as well as those of other indie designers with whom I periodically collaborate.
In January 2019, I’m excited to be debuting a custom milled line of Romney/Falkland blend non-superwash yarns. In both fingering and DK, it’ll be perfect for color work, and I can’t wait to bring it to my shows next year!
