Bumblebirch is at Urban Fiber Arts!

Heartwood in Berry Juice

Bumblebirch yarn can now be found at Urban Fiber Arts in the Pearl District!

There are many fine knitting shops in Portland, but this one in particular sells Bumblebirch yarn. Specializing in local independent Northwest dyers and spinners, Urban Fiber Arts is located on the southbound Portland Streetcar line and just around the corner from a Number 17 Bus stop. It has an excellent selection of patterns and unique yarns, host classes and the local spinnerati (spinning group), and the owner Cindy is an all-around fun lady. Be sure to check it out!

Bumblebirch supports public transportation! You can't (shouldn't) knit while you're driving on the freeway, but you can purl on the bus...So hop on the streetcar or MAX or bus and check out Urban Fiber Arts in the Pearl.


Bumblebirch is Back

The sun is shining brightly.
The birds are singing boldly.
The trees shake their verdant leaves,
As the curious squirrels stop and see.
It's a beautiful day we believe,
For the yarn is dyeing color again.

My Baby Sabbatical is over and I've returned to the studio. This year I'm joined by my wonderful husband, Paul, who helps behind the scenes and makes sure I keep my head together.

Are you ready for some fantastic new yarn? New yarn will be available soon on Etsy.
