We connect fibre enthusiasts - makers, creators, teachers, learners – everyone sharing a love for all things fibre, yarn, and textiles. Join us May 28, 2022 and let us help you discover the wealth of luxury in your yarn habit. 

Carry your creativity with Erin Lane Bags! Whether you show your fiber fandom with the woolly wonder

Sheepleverse, or dive into history with the Curiosities collection, our project bags, totes, and hook and needle

organizers are at the ready to keep your hobby happy.
