Owl is the newest addition to the Quince and Co family. Squishy, lofty, plump, little Owl is made from a blend of American alpaca and wool. It's spun and dyed in New England and knits up between 4 ½ to 5 stitches per inch, the perfect weight for just about everything. Find it and the other Quince fibers at www.quinceandco.com. See all 7 colors of Little Owl at the Knitting Pipeline Retreat along with the other Quince colors.
Peddler’s Way Quilt Co is a sponsor of our show and our Knitting Pipeline Retreat. The shop is located just about a mile from our retreat location just off the historic Washington Square. Peddler’s Way Quilt Co is practically at the back door of those of you staying at The Cornerstone Inn Bed and Breakfast. On the second floor of this 6,000 sq ft store is a fiber corner with an array of fine quality yarns, books, and needles. http://www.peddlersway.com
Knit 4 Together is a knitting and fiber shop in Dunlap IL just north of Peoria IL. We are a cozy, friendly yarn shop with wall to wall fiber, especially natural fiber and specialty yarn.
