Shibui Mix Party (2 hours)
Friday, November 17 • 2-4pm • $10
Hosted by Shibui's Sandy Barnes
Enjoy the opportunity to experiment with Shibui’s unique fibers in different combinations and experience the luxe results firsthand. You will learn how to combine Shibui yarns to make fabrics that you never knew were possible. Shibui's stunning colors play differently in each yarn base, and the subtle variations create a unique visual depth and texture. We will examine swatches using different Shibui mixes and look at the different fabrics they create, and we'll browse patterns. Each participant will be given their own Mix Cheat Sheet to see which mixes will work for your preferred pattern and a Winding Card with each of Shibui's bases included. Then we will experiment swatching different mixes to see which creates the ideal fabric for your pattern.
