Spring Projects and Support Ukraine


March 2022


You Can't Have Too Many Needles

As knitters, we know that the right needles can really make or break our projects.  If you've been struggling with your knitting, maybe it's time to try a new needle!  We carry a wide range of needles from wooden straights and double points to metal circulars, double points, and interchangeable kits. Kelli's favorite Hiya Hiya, Tina's favorite Chiaogoo, and everyone's favorite Signature are all in stock.  Plus, try our Kokomo Yarns straight needles and double points for a warm smooth wood needle.

We Support Ukraine

Tina and Kelli have been working on some patterns and kits for sunflowers for Ukraine.  We plan to have these available soon with all profits going to World Central Kitchen or Global Giving

You can pre-order your Tatted, Med. Knotted Lace, or Embroidery kit here or pre-order just the PDF pattern here.  The PDF pattern will include all of the sunflower patterns we create in all of the needlearts. Please note, they aren't done yet, but we are working on them!


Shuttlebirds Tatting Workshop

Did you hear?  The Shuttlebirds Workshop is back in person for 2022!  Kelli is so excited to be teaching five classes on Friday and Saturday.  There is still a little room in her classes and plenty of time to sign up, but we hope you'll join Kelli & Laura at the Shuttlebirds Tatting Workshop in Post Falls, ID for a bit of "BlackSheep on the Road" and some fabulous classes!




Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!


Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. HAHA! Yes, we will do blankets but they may not be true temperature blankets.  Let's be honest, Kelli & Tina like projects that you can complete a little more quickly.  However, we love the idea of a Blanket-A-Long so we are joining in. 

This is going to be a VERY relaxed Crochet/Knit/Stitch/Tat-a-long that you can join at any time.  We have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration.  Tina is giving away her Grandma's Flower Afghan pattern to participants and Kelli is giving away her BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern.  We will also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes available. Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too.  Tina will be stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. Kelli is also tatting a temperature table runner and has a free pattern on our Knit/Crochet-a-long page. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here





In-Person Groups Are Back

If you are local, our in-person groups are back!  Join Tina on Thursday nights from 6:30-8pm and again on Saturday mornings from 10:30am-12pm for in-person groups. Groups will meet in the shop and must be masked and socially distanced. Please contact Tina (tina@blacksheepatorenco.com or 503-380-8462) to add your name to the contact list for groups so we can stay safe and crafty.


We Talk and Teach Every Week!




Did you know we have giveaways, solicit ideas for "online skill videos," teach, and chat all week? Join Kelli & Tina on the YouTube channel for tutorials, field trips, and chats.  Leave a comment or send us an email if you want us to teach something specific.  Plus, we post short video tutorials to TikTok on our @blacksheepfiber channel and regularly post to both Instagram and Facebook.  Check us out on your favorite medium.
