Live Online Chats with Engaging Creators

Fiberside Chats are one-hour online (Zoom) sessions with special guests, giving us a peek into their world. These designers and creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, latest projects—or whatever is inspiring them now. There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join! The gatherings are organized and hosted by our friends at Longmont Yarn Shoppe. The registration fee for each chat is only $20 USD and the proceeds support the guests and participating yarn shops such as ours. Bonus! Sign up for 4 chats between Nov 1 and Dec 11, 2021 and you will receive a free seat at a Chat of your choice in the first quarter of 2022.

How to register: Join Barb, Cynthia and the River City Yarns group! Register on Longmont Yarn Shoppe's website and find River City Yarns in the drop down menu. Easy-peasy!

There will be a run through of all the designs and some fun, behind the scenes anecdotes and stories from the photoshoot. And of course, it wouldn’t be December without some talk about their ever popular Christmas Balls, their Advent Calendar project and Christmas Calendar for 2021!

"Surviving the Holiday Knit-a-thon" with Carson Demers on Saturday, December 11 at 12:00 pm MST

The holidays are right around the corner and many of us are frantically knitting gifts for those we love. Unfortunately, and too often, that comes at a cost to our post-holiday physical comfort. Deadline knitting can be stressful and takes its toll on our body. Join Carson for this Fiberside Chat and you’ll learn about some common areas of vulnerability to discomfort and injury, what can cause it, and what to do if YOU over do!
