Fling: less than 2 weeks away!

Less than 2 weeks until the Highlands Fibre Fling! The main event takes place at our studio on Saturday August 18, 10 am-4 pm. Please let us know you’re coming: RSVP on the Ravelry Event Page. As always, email us at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca with any questions.

How to get to the Fling

Ravelry discussion group

For those of you coming for the whole weekend, we want to remind you that we’ve set up a knit night for you at our studio on Friday August 17, 7-9 pm.


The Dyeing 101 workshop will run on Friday and Sunday (take both to learn more techniques!) Each student will take home a minimum of 3 skeins of the yarn of their choice. Dyeing roving is also possible, for those spinners who want to try.

Meghan Jackson of Butterfly Knit will be teaching a class chock full of skill-building based on her Oh So Quiet scarf/shawl. Here’s what Meghan has to say about her class:

In the workshop, we’ll get started on the project or a small sample of the project, and talk about intarsia, working with more than one colour, basic cable-needle-less cables, as well as customizing any sideways shawl to be symmetrical or asymmetrical or on the bias or deeper or narrower… I love sideways shawls because they are so customizable and you can really make them your own. In the Oh So Quiet workshop we’ll talk about how to do just that!
