Montreal Knitting Teas at La Société Textile

Montreal Knitting Teas at La Société Textile

We are very excited to announce that we will be continuing our monthly knitting teas this fall at a new home, La Société Textile! Our first knitting tea of the season will be on Saturday, September 23 from 1:30 to 4:30pm.

We really enjoyed last year's knitting tea café tour, which led us to some wonderful independent coffee and tea shops all around Montreal. But our favourite little cafés are often just that - little - and our group is getting a bit too big to squeeze into some of the smaller locations. So for this year we decided it would be best to choose somewhere we could meet regularly and be sure to have enough room for everyone. We immediately thought of La Société Texile (where we had such a good time at our holiday party last December) and they have graciously agreed to host all of our teas this fall in their new location at 257 rue Bernard.

One of the great things about meeting there is their "anti-cafe" setup. The way an anti-cafe works is that clients pay for the time they spend in the space (the price includes access to tea and coffee) and are allowed to bring their own food. So for the Sweet Paprika teas the cost will be $6 per person, and we can all bring goodies to share. I'm looking forward to doing some baking this fall!

For those of you who like to plan ahead, the dates for all of our upcoming teas this fall will be:

  • September 23
  • October 21
  • November 18
  • December 9

And if you're not the plan ahead type, don't worry, we'll be posting reminders on Ravelry and Facebook closer to each date. We're looking forward to catching up with everyone next month!

It's that time of year again! Our 2020 batch of Norbouillet fleece is already at the mill, ready to be custom-spun into this year's batch of our locally-sourced, 100% Canadian yarns.

This year as we were setting up pre-orders we took some time to look through all the beautiful projects that our customers have made with these yarns over the past few years, and we were inspired to share a few of our favourites here. Thank you so much to everyone who gave us permission to share your photos!

Indigo Dye Experiments
Indigo Dye Experiments

It's been over two months now since we had to temporarily shut down the dye studio to wait out COVID-19. We've been able to have limited access to the studio again for the past few weeks, and I'm happy to be back! But last month when I still didn't have access I was itching to play with colour again, and realized that in amongst all the yarn and other products that I'd hauled home back in March, I had some indigo dye kits. I didn't have any of my other dyeing equipment with me, but indigo doesn't require heat or mordanting to set, so it was the perfect solution for me to scratch that dyeing itch!

Lanark gloves (today's featured pattern in our 100 Days of Patterns project) are one of my design contributions to our Cloudy Day Collection, published way back in 2012. They're knit in our Messa di Voce fingering-weight superwash merino, in the Chimney Smoke colourway.
