Red Barn updates

We are still enjoying, our move from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles,  to the peaceful surroundings of Palm Springs, CA, sunny skies, tennis and spending time in my studio.

Since we last sent out a newsletter,  I wonder how I found time to work at all.  My true passion is all things fiber, textile, color, fabric,   and not so much social media administration.

Towards that end,  I am condensing my social media tools to the wonderfully expanded options provided by Facebook.  So,  you can find us there,  and oh yes,  it is so much easier to use,  and fits my yarn company so much better.

The studio is open by appointment,  so just reach me through the website and email,  or you can actually set up your own appointment right through Facebook.  I still offer the service of  knitting help if it is needed,  as well as shopping for the yarns that are created and finished,  waiting for new homes away from the studio.

I still have just those 70 or 80 production colors that you can find on the website,  and  the standard variegated combinations, also on the website,  but the fun ones are those “Uniquities”,   the one-of-a-kind, paintings on a skein of yarn,  inspired by nature,   that you can only purchase in the studio.   So,  feel free to reach out to me by email,  if you would like an appointment.

These beauties, one of my coordinated bundles, which are usually two or three uniquities and one tonal solid,  recently went to their new home in Canada,  along with some mink,  done in the colorway Acorn.  Lucky knitter!

News about Red Barn Yarn

We are so happy to announce our move from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles,  to the peaceful surroundings of Palm Springs, California.  Many changes have occurred.  I am no longer working a 9-5 job that takes me from my true love and passion,  all things fiber, textile, color, fabric,  to name a few.  We have completed renovating the home we are living in,  and I am in a position to devote all the time I want to my beloved yarn company.  I have the ability to open my home studio, by appointment, for now,  and for open knitting, crocheting,  or any form of hand sewing in the near future!   I still have just those 70 or 80 production colors that you can find on the website,  and  the standard variegated combinations, also on the website,  but the fun ones are those ” Uniquities”  the one-of-a-kind, paintings on a skein of yarn,  inspired by nature,   that you can only purchase in the studio.   So,  feel free to reach out to me by email,  if you would like an appointment.

I was happy to look at the  Pantone Colors for 2017  and to learn that what is “new”  for 2017  are colors from within my existing palette of production colors,  whoo hoo!  Apparently  the 2017 ” color of the year” is our color Peridot,  introduced about 3 years ago.  ( I like to plan ahead!)

My plans for new colorways,  center around team colors.  I have long wanted to do something in this vein,  and for now,  the first one will be to honor one of my favorites,  the Ohio State Buckeyes  and do a red and gray combo. In RBY-speak   that would be Holiday Red  and Charcoal.  I plan to do my 2 color skeins,  so you will knit or crochet  starting with one color, ending with the second color.

Does that look  like those Buckeyes, or what?   You can order now,  if you like,  just by emailing me,  info@redbarnyarn.com  or stay tuned to find this on the web site.  You may also place requests  for your favorite team colors.

Happy knitting, crocheting, quilting or whatever your passion of the moment is,
