Stitch Exchange: New Quince Trunk Show

Have you seen the latest trunk show from Quince & Co? We have it here in the store, until July 20th. Come by, and see all the beautiful samples of Quince & Co. projects, plus, save 10% on the featured patterns and the yarn to make them. We love Quince, and we know you do, too. But if you fall in love with another yarn in the store, and want to use it to make a Trunk Show pattern, we'll still give you the discount!

Browsing through these gorgeous sample garments has me pretty inspired. The crisp, drapey Lida Shawl in Quince Sparrow is the perfect quick lace project, and the recent heat spell has me dying to get my hands on a cool, lightweight linen like Sparrow. 


But, the fog is never more than a few hours away, so for those still working with wool, there's the luxurious Reixa, made from two colors of Quince & Co. Chickadee


The sample is made with Bird's Egg and Chanterelle. I love the look of mixing colors of similar saturation value, like these two. When chosen carefullly, low-contrast colors add even more softness and subtle interest to the all-over mesh. It got me thinking about other color combinations I'd love to see.

If you're less about softness and subtlety, and want something striking and modern, a bold combination like Peacoat and Honey could make the Reixa really pop, and turn it into an eye-catching statement.

I'd love to see Reixa adjusted and made with different weights of Quince wool, all the way up to Osprey or Puffin, for a really dramatic, squishy accessory.

Come in the shop any time between now and July 20th to see all the samples in the Quince Trunk Show, and we'll help you devise your own perfect combination of pattern, color and yarn. -HD

Reminder: We'll be closed Thursday, July 4th, in honor of Independence Day. Regular hours resume on Friday. Have a great holiday!
