Sunday, March 3rd – Knitted Wit
Lorajean Kelley has been dyeing gorgeous yarns for as long as Twisted's been alive. In fact, she was one of the first local indie dyers and spinners we worked with! Her little business has grown leaps and bounds in the past few years, and we're so happy she's a part of our team.
Lorajean will be at Twisted from 12noon – 4pm, and will be doing tastings of her scrumptious Knitted Wit yarns, so come on by, spend some time with her, and score some beautiful hand-dyed yarn.
