Trunk Show: Songbird Yarn & Fibres

Welcome to our first trunk show of the season, and also our first ever socially distant trunk show. We are very excited to have Vicki and Songbird Yarn & Fibres as our guest!

Birds and yarn have both been lifelong passions of Vicki's, and dyeing yarn gives her an opportunity to combine the two. Each colourway is inspired by a specific breed of bird, and the skein will include some fun facts about that breed. The best part is that she donates $2 from every skein sold to conservation efforts by Birds Canada.

In order to maintain social distancing guidelines, this will be something of an unorthodox show, but we believe we’ve set it up in a great way for everyone to have access to the yarn, and for locals to be able to come to the shop and give it a squish, by appointment.

Here’s how the show will go:

All of the yarn in the show will be available in a special section of our website starting at 12pm on Thursday, May 28th until 10pm on Sunday, May 31st.

Vicki of Songbird and Amelia of Yarns Untangled will be running two introduction and Q&A sessions on Instagram live.

You’ll be able to see all the yarn, get introduced to the bases and colourways, and of course meet Vicki and learn a little bit about her, her approach, and her history with yarn. In order to view either or both of the Q&A sessions, hop on your Instagram at noon and click on the Live circle at the top of your feed.

As well, we will be scheduling a limited number of in-person appointments for locals who are interested in coming to see the yarn in person. In order to make an appointment, reply to this email or call the shop. Before doing so however, please read the below list of precautions.

  • Visitors to the shop must be wearing a mask.
  • Visitors will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entering the shop. No squirt, no squish.
  • Maximum of two visitors per appointment.
  • Meetings will be for 30 minutes maximum with breaks in between for sanitization.
  • Please note that many streets in Kensington Market have been reduced to local traffic only.
  • These appointments are specifically for the Songbird Trunk Show. While you are welcome to purchase other items, we are not offering project planning or help with anything not associated with Songbird.
