Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending my first yarn release party for Fiber Hound! Reverie Yarn, Decor & Gifts is the lucky first shop to carry my yarns, and I am so fortunate to be able to work with them. The shop is owned by 7 people who came together with a common vision, and grew from the ashes of a closed yarn store in Goshen, Indiana. Conveniently, the shop is located 45 minutes away from my studio. They feature a wide array of yarns from Berroco, Manos, Lorna's Laces, and Kauni, as well as many non-yarn items. Their shop aesthetic is perfect: homey, warm, and full of yarn.
Reverie's first order consisted of various colors of Afghan Hound, Dachshund, and Basenji, and they prominently featured these yarns for the party. They also had a new and talented designer, Denise Devereux of d. Designs, create a pattern out of my yarn! I was happy to see many of her patterns fly out the door at the party.
One of Reverie's great ideas for the evening was to create a matching game based on the names of my yarns on the back of custom order forms. For each dog photo you could match with it's breed name, you would get 1% off. I'll admit that some of these were tricky, because a lot of the dogs I named my yarns after look like long haired greyhounds!
The event went very successfully, and I'm so pleased to be associated with them. I intend for them to be the first of many lovely stores that Fiber Hound yarns will be associated with.
