August Newes

Hi Everyone!
We have great news, upcoming events, and product information to share with you this month!

August 19 – Trunk Show at Black Mountain Yarn Shop
The Fibre Studio will present a pop-up shop at Black Mountain Yarn Shop on Saturday, the 19th. We will be there from 10am-5pm and will have lovely Fifty Shades of Gradientâ„¢, Merino Bamboo – Fingering, Cotton Bamboo in Fingering and Worsted, Walkabout – Fingering, Color Play Kits, and much MUCH more. If you haven’t already done so, this is a great time to answer that What the Fade!? question.

August 16 – Bonnie and Clyde Movie Event
We still have a few group movie tickets remaining for our upcoming Bonnie and Clyde classic movie event on Wednesday, the 16th. We will still have open knit and crochet that morning, however, we will leave around 12:45-1:00pm for the Stonecrest Movie Theater to buy our popcorn and watch the movie. While we’ve stopped all dyeing for secret color way Joplin (it will be back for the Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl), assigned-seating tickets are still available for $15. Please join us for a fun time as we travel along with that dangerous duo, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Inara Wrap in Fifty Shades of Gradientâ„¢
This lovely shawl/wrap by Ambah O’Brien is currently one of our favorites. The pattern has both charts and instructions for three sizes: short (64″ x 18.5″), medium (80″ x 18.5″), and long (96″ x 18.5″). Why we love it? We like to follow the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Sweetie) and will use two, 4-ounce cakes of our Fifty Shades of Gradient to create the short version for our shop sample. There are fewer ends to weave in, and the softer gradient changes from single skein cakes create a water color effect when they overlap with another gradient in a contrasting color. The longer versions are also lovely worked in a main color along with a 5- or 6-skein Color Play Kit.

Color Suggestions (from left to right, top to bottom): Belize & Business Suit; Creamsicle & Latte; Glenda of the East & Basil; Northern Lights & Lavender; Dante & Business Suit; and Hydrangea & Neptune

So many color options…so little time!

Bonnie and Clyde (Inspired by the Cinema)

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Bonnie and Clyde (1967), the story of real-life bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow as depicted by Warner Brothers. This movie was one of the sixties’ most discussed, volatile and controversial crime [slash] gangster films combining comedy, terror, love, and as-never-before-seen violence.

While we won’t discuss (here) how this movie changed, even possibly romanticized, violence in film for future generations, what we will discuss is why this was possible.

For all the tragedy inherent in the real-life stories of both Parker and Barrow, the on-screen beauty of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, as well as the 1930’s glamour so amatorily reproduced and edited by Warner Brothers Studios, portrayed a captivating and oft-emulated style thus launching the film to world-wide success.

The Fibre Studio is excited to announce we have scheduled a yarn-centric movie event, celebrating both the golden anniversary of this polemical film as well as 1930’s color and glamour by combining a new Fifty Shades of Gradientâ„¢ color way with a big-screen viewing of the 1967 movie, hosted by Fathom Events. Information is as follows:

Who: Limited Number of Lucky Fibre Studio Customers
What: Bonnie and Clyde Movie Event
When: Wednesday, August 16, 2-4:30pm [Attendees should arrive at the theater by 1:30pm to pick up their tickets, yarn, and purchase refreshments if desired.]
Where: Regal Stonecrest Cinemas [7824 Rea Rd | Charlotte 28277 | 844-462-7342]
Cost: $50
Includes: One 4-ounce cake of our new Fifty Shades of Gradientâ„¢ (approx 560 yards) in a new color way we are calling Joplin (history buffs will “get” the name) and a group ticket to see a big-screen showing of the movie.
Exclusions: This color way, inspired by the film, will be dyed in limited quantities as a debut for event-goers only and WILL NOT be revealed until the event. Joplin will not reappear for sale until The Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl in the fall.

Event tickets may be purchased at our online store here. We hope you join us for this inspired event.

Happy stitching, y’all!
