Trunk Show with Canon Hand Dyes and Dragonfly Fibers

July 17, 2020




Many indie dyers have seen fiber festivals that they registered for cancelled due to COVID, so we put our heads together with Amy Lee and figured out how to do a trunk show amid this pandemic!  She will be at Nitro Knitters on Friday July 31st and Saturday August 1st from 12-4pm.

While it will be a ton of fun as always, it will look different from our traditional trunk shows.  We will be rearranging the store a bit to make room for Amy Lee to have more table tops to display all of her beautiful yarns.  This will allow everyone to be able to spread out and keep our distance.  And most importantly, we will be booking shopping appointments so that we can maintain our safe store occupancy.  It will be like a semi-private shopping "party."  Amy Lee will be there to help with project ideas and there will be so many samples for inspiration.  Please call us at 503-372-9318 or email us at nitroknitters@gmail.com to book your 30-minute appointment!
