Welcome

Welcome to the Vivid Fiber Arts website!

We’ve been working really hard for the past few months to get things up and running. I don’t want to jinx it, but I have to say it’s been a great experience so far. I am extremely fortunate to have a technologically-talented partner-in-crime, John, who has been a huge help. He specializes in web design, graphics, photography and editing. He also winds a perfect cake of yarn.

This blog will be home to many things: information and updates on what’s going on here at VFA, reviews, events, designer interviews, pattern recommendations, giveaways, technique tutorials, contests, collection previews, polls, featured FOs, inspiration, and encouragement. This forum is multi-craftual; makers of all sorts are welcome and embraced. We are active on Ravelry, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.‏

Please also feel free to contact either of us with questions, suggestions or just to say hello. I am receiving a lot of email lately, so sometimes it might take me a bit, but I do get back to everyone.

I am very grateful for all the support, advice, cheerleading, and enthusiasm I have gotten from everyone involved with this launch. People never cease to amaze me with their talent and generosity.

Thank you for joining us on what is sure to be a colorful adventure!

– Amy

    Hi! I have just “discovered” your store by romping through Ravelry this morning….and I’m dying to try out your Mermaid Lux XL, it looks absolutely yummy! Can you give a hint when it may be available?

      Hi and welcome!
      There is more Mermaid in the pipeline. It’s a pretty popular color! If you haven’t done so already, make an account and join the waitlist for whatever yardage you are interested in so that you can be the first to know when it’s available again.
      Thanks!

    Is there no more wait list? Trying to join waitlist for Gemini Sock in 80’s night but nothing happens.

      Hi Maxine- Sorry I didn’t see this earlier. Im not sure if the waitlist was playing up when you were specifically looking at 80s night before, but it seems to be working bc I have a TON of people on it!

      Socks and all othr wool/silk/alpaca items are going to be back in production in late Dec- January. We are upgrading the electric and setup on that entire side of the studio. Fun times ahead!

    Just discovered you and am super-interested in your tencel gradients. Wondering when you are planning to make some available.

    Wishing you success in your endeavour.
