Log House Cottage is in the house! Join us Friday, May 11 from 7-9 PM for an exclusive trunk show featuring a fab selection from this local Ottawa-area dyer! Meet the team behind these drop dead gorgeous yarns and and have prime access to a great selection of squishy goodness in a wide variety of colours and bases! "The cottage studio where we create our hand dyed yarn is nestled in the countryside of rural Ontario, Canada, just south of the city of Ottawa. Surrounded by trees, horses grazing in the pasture and cats playing in the wood pile, the log house studio is where a kaleidoscope of colours come together to meet fabulous fibers. Our humble beginnings came from a frustrated maker not able to find yarns with the colours and textures needed to create the finished knits, crochet or woven items envisioned. With naked yarn and dye in hand, I found a new form of creative expression and a way to achieve the colour and texture needed to satisfy the maker in me. Now I have the privilege of working in a log studio with a view that never ceases to inspire. I spend my days testing new techniques, combining different colours and jumping in with both feet, throwing caution to the wind to create something new each day. Sharing the yarns that result with other makers and watching it transform into a finished work of art is like icing on the cake. Thank you for joining us on the road to inspire, encourage, educate and create. Can't make it Friday? No fear - the trunk show will be here all Saturday and Sunday! Stay tuned for more details!
