What is your current favorite color or color combination?
When I’m buying fiber, I usually tend to gravitate toward blues and greens, my favorite colors. But I am much more adventurous in buying dyed fiber than in buying yarn, because the yarn spun from dyed fiber is always a surprise, and there’s another surprise in store when the handspun yarn is knit up.

What is your current favorite color or color combo?
My favorite color right now is this gold. It makes most any color look fantastic but by itself, it just makes a beautiful statement. And it’s kind of popular in Pittsburgh.

Rapunzel Falkland

Storybook BFL
Perfect for a fractal spin!

Flame Peppermint Blue fingering weight yarn
It is so hard to photograph because it literally glows. It is 50% silk/50% BFL and is as lustrous, drape-y and soft as can be.

So soft and rich.

Indie Knit and Spin
Fiber Arts Marketplace

Awesome Local Vendors
Amazing Raffle Prizes
Cool Like Minded People
all in one space

This year there will also be an awesome raffle of amazing fiber arts items from our vendors held at 12 and at 2.

Our vendors will also be offering little demos throughout the day. Come learn something new!

Wilkins School Community Center in Regent Square, 7604 Charleston Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15218 **

Saturday November 12, 2016, 10:00-4:00


If you’ve never been to the show before, know that it is at a school in a residential area and that all parking is street parking. If you are worried about having to park a couple of blocks away, come later in the day when the show is less busy.

The give-away take-away table is a place to get rid of the fiber arts stuff that you just have lying around collecting dust. And maybe to score something new that makes you happy. Books, patterns, needles, knitting, crochet or spinning supplies all welcome! You do not have to bring something to take something or take something if you bring something.

**Please note, this space is not handicapped accessible, and requires the climbing of several flights of stairs to get to the show. Despite efforts to raise the funds, the Community Center has not yet succeeded in getting enough money for an elevator.

Hi Friends!

I had an incredibly fun time at the Spin in, but (of course) did not snap one photo of the event.  The longer I have been running Indie Knit and Spin, the more I’ve felt we need a more centralized space for folks to chat, organize, and sell fiber arts supplies… so I’ve made a facebook group.
