We’re delighted to welcome local designer Abbye Dahl to the shop for the first time this Saturday, October 14 from 12-4 pm.
Abbye is a knitwear designer living in Vancouver, who has been knitting since she was a child, and became obsessed with designing knitwear for the past two years. Her new book “Cloche Knits” is inspired by the beautiful hats from the 1920-1950’s.
Abbye is bringing along her vintage-inspired hat collection plus more of of her beautiful designs to inspire us all. (Pacific Sands Shawl, photo above.) Our Saturday trunk show attendees will receive 10% off the yarn to knit one of Abbye’s designs.
We’ve been super busy receiving our new fall lines and restocks these past few weeks. Two large pallets of yarn arrived just this week! The shop is once again filled to bursting with beautiful new yarn and colours. We could not love this time of the year any more than we do.
One of the yarns that has been flying off the shelves is Illimani Yarn‘s new SANTI, a gorgeous DK weight blend of merino, alpaca, silk and yak. Scrumptious!
We’ll be sharing more of our delightful new things over the coming weeks with you here, on Instagram and on our “new arrivals” table at the shop. Plus every Saturday afternoon in October we’re hosting trunk show events with local designers. You’ll find our fun-filled events schedule and knitting social dates right here.
Come join us for another fabulous new season at 88 Stitches – our 11th Fall season!
