Dye is Cast Yarns Trunk ShowJoin us for the Dye is Cast Yarns Trunk Show kick-off.
About this experience
Join us for a trunk show of yarns from Philly-local indie dyer Dye is Cast Yarns. Dyer and owner, Melissa Martinez will join us on Saturday, March 14th and the yarn will stay along with us through Sunday, March 28th.
Dye is Cast Yarns are hand dyed in very small batches using professional quality acid dyes in a smoke-free environment in Philadelphia, PA. Yarns are dyed using a variety of different techniques and each skein is a work of art to provide you with infinite crafting possibilities.
While they gravitate towards more moody, muted, colorful neutrals and rather offbeat color combos, they also love incorporating brights into the mix. You'll find that Dye is Cast Yarns will give an extra special richness and depth to your projects as a result. What’s Melissa's inspiration? It's mostly Gothic horror, fantasy, nature, space, the paranormal and geeky puns.
Melissa Martinez, who originally hails from Queens NY, has been proudly calling Philadelphia her home since 2010. She is a life-long lover of color, yarn and the fiber arts. Her grandmother taught her how to crochet, knit and sew when she was about 8 years old and her hands haven’t been idle since. Throughout the years she has been a maker, crochet and knitting pattern designer and in 2016 she added the title of indie dyer to the list when she launched Dye is Cast Yarns.
