Since buying the store in June of 2014, we've had several successful special events partnering with fantastic indie dyers such as The Flying Kettle, Republic of Wool, Spun Right Round, & StimpyLab. It was through these experiences that we realized we wanted our work with indie dyers to be one of our primary focuses.
We here at the Altered Stitch have a strong passion for supporting and cultivating indie dyers no matter what stage of the game they’re in. Whether you are just getting your feet wet in the fiber world, or you have achieved some success and are looking to take your business to the next level, participating in this amazingly supportive fiber arts collective can be a gateway to exploring many new possibilities!
Our shop is dedicated to showcasing the talents of indie dyers---not only in the stock that we carry, but through year-round special events such as our Eye on Indie Dyer Series and our participation in Stitches West.
The Altered Stitch made its first appearance at Stitches West in February of 2016! It has been a very important part of our story to seek out and support Indie Artists and we are now taking the next steps in that journey by offering Indie Dyers a platform to showcase their work at a major event without having to take on the cost of coming to a show like Stitches West.
Through our participation in Stitches West as well as indie dyer focused events we hold at our shop, we hope to grow The Fibre Collective and cultivate the relationship not only between the shop and indie dyers, but between indie dyers from across the globe! If you'd like to be considered for participation in The Fibre Collective and join our family, please send an inquiry on our contact page!
