Arbor Twist Happy Hour and Trunk Show

Celebrate summer with Arbor Twist! Ann Arbor hand-dyer Rachel Leggett’s pretty yarns have been a hit in the shop since we brought them in to brighten up the gray Michigan winter. Now we are welcoming sunshine’s return by celebrating these colorful, lightweight beauties. Both Sycamore and Sequoia (which brings a little sparkle to the party) are fingering weights, and either would be happy to keep you company on all your summer adventures, each delicate skein begging to be knit up into a quick, portable shawl or pair of socks.

Rachel, a Michigan native whose “real life” finds her working in web development and as a skating coach, began hand-dyeing her own yarn soon after she moved to Ann Arbor and “instantly fell in love” with the adventure of trying out new combinations and colorways. She has been pushing her craft forward ever since and especially loves the opportunity to share her work with others and to see how her work transforms when it reaches others’ hands.

Please join us to welcome Rachel to Spun for a special happy hour event on Friday, June 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. We will enjoy refreshments, camaraderie, a few door prizes, and a lot of pretty yarn. If you can’t make Friday’s party, remember that we will have extra Arbor Twist on display in the shop through Saturday, so make plans to stop by later in the weekend!
