Stash Podcast, Sonia Ruyts and the Yarn Story Collection
In 2016 Stash embarked on an ambitious yearlong project: The Yarn Story Collection. This collection was a way to showcase the stories behind some of the most talented and passionate makers in the yarn industry today. It was a way to bring you their stories through one of a kind yarn. Sonia says, “I’m a dreamer and as such I have a lot of ideas for big projects. Some stay ideas, close to my heart and others quickly take on a life of their own. Something about the yarn story idea wouldn’t let me go, and I had to see what would happen. Before I knew it, I was making a list of dream dyers I wanted to work with. It was tough to narrow it down to just 12 – we are living in a golden age of yarn and are certainly spoiled for choice!”
In the end, we partnered with 12 incredible yarn artisans. We worked together to create custom colorways and to share their stories with you. In this all-new ebook, you will be treated to stunning full-color photography, stories, and interviews with the 12 makers who participated in the 2016 Yarn Story Collection. Inside you’ll find interviews with the incredible women behind: Hazel Knits, Spincycle Yarns, The Lemonade Shop, Black Trillium, Republic of Wool, Sunrise Fiber Co., The Neighborhood Fiber Company, Bumblebirch, Huckleberry Knits, Knit Collage, SweetGeorgia Yarns and The Fiber Seed.
