    We have invited the colour geniuses of The Blue Brick to join us and they are kindly bringing a lovely trunk show of their yarns... including a special colourway... We can not wait to see it!

    Be sure to have a peek at the gorgeousness they produce on their website. While, we very sadly don't carry their yarns on an ongoing basis... we are super stoked to have Shireen and Tito join us for this special event! Don't forget to have a look at Shireen's lovely collection of patterns here on Ravelry too... to get inspired!
