ouR SUMMER MEGA-DESTASH SALE: SHARING JANE'S BOUNTY

AUGUST 9 AND 10, 2019  10AM-5PM

6545 N Academy Blvd Colorado Springs, CO 

We were fortunate to receive, as a donation, the enormous stash and body of work of the late Jane Webb of Boulder, an incredibly talented and productive fiber artist. Included in this donation was boxes upon boxes of coned weaving yarn, novelty and knitting yarns, and pounds of roving, tops, and batts. In addition to these supplies were her amazing handmade (hand-dyed, handspun, handwoven, hand sewn, and hand-lined with handpainted silk !) garments that she created and sold.

While our members and students use and enjoy a portion of Jane’s materials, the rest is simply too much for us to continue to store and use up in any reasonable amount of time. Because of this, we have made the decision to sell the bulk of it. It’s beautiful stuff, and we want to see it out in the wild, being used. A selection of her garments will also be available for sale, along with a few other items of interest for fiber/ textile types.


Please join us on 8/9 and 8/10 at Textiles West (our north location) for our destash sale. We will be selling all fiber and yarns, by weight, across the board, at $1 an oz. This is an enormous discount on the workhorse wools, and an absolute steal on the luxury fibers and blends. A portion of the proceeds will go to our fiber arts department, to be used for purchasing much needed equipment, like bobbin winders and rigid heddle looms, and to support our fiber arts programming, so we can foster a new generation of Janes. :)
