Celebrity Visits to All Points Yarn


Prudence Mapstone - Joy & Beauty in Crochet

An all-too-short visit from the widely, well-known freeform crocheter, Prudence Mapstone, certainly beautified the shop today! Prudence's work in crochet is legendary, and she was lodging nearby for the few days conducting workshops locally to students who had traveled from all over the country to see her and gain technical skills and inspiration from her vision for fiber.

Reports from the attendees were glowing--lots of inspiration, color, and work to create some of the unique elements and pieces that together might be singly or used in combination to create fiber masterpieces. This was a reunion of sorts also, having been in Prudence's first-class, held now many years ago. What a privilege to have a visit with the Marvelous Mapstone!

Debbie Bliss and Nell Bliss Store Selfie!

It is with great pleasure that All Points Yarn welcomed world-renown knitwear designer Debbie Bliss and her daughter, Nell Bliss to the shop. Although they were on their way to Seattle Mariners 2014 Stitch 'n' Pitch event, they took a moment to stop in, meet customers, chat together briefly, and take a breath from their hectic schedule.

The Debbie Bliss pattern lines and yarn name brand are very familiar to many knitters and crocheters, so it is fantastic to finally meet the truly inspiring lady behind them. Nell Bliss is a creative force to be contended with also: look for more of her youthful, innovative designs in upcoming issues of Debbie Bliss magazine!

Helen and Norman Koshak of Newton's Yarn Country Visit

All Points Yarn was graced by the appearance of Helen and Norman Koshak of Newton's Yarn Country during the recent Vogue Knitting Live event. Long-time yarn manufacturers, designers, and instructors, these two are among the most well known and inspiring maker-merchants creating yarns in the United States today. Each year, Newton's Yarn Country holds two national-level sales and educational events featuring hand and machine knitting, weaving, and crochet classes, as well as classes for Softbyte's DesignaKnit and Cochenille's software programs. These well-attended seminars feature instructors from across the nation and North America. Newton's website is, and there you'll see their shop's events and class schedule. Who knows? They may be visiting your part of the country soon!

Mary Anne Oger Makes a Stop!

May 27th was especially festive with the visit of Mary Anne Oger, machine knitter extraordinaire! She was on her way to a regional machine knitting seminar and made a shortstop. What a great break! You'll know Mary Anne from her magazine, KnitWords, and most recently her articles for Knit 'n' Style. Her current, simple to understand designs appeal to beginning machine knitters as well as the more experienced! Her web site is

Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably Visit

On October 8th, Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably made an impromptu visit to All Points Yarn! How exciting is that!? In our all too brief couple of hours, Kaffe talked about Rowan Colourscape yarn's new colorways, patterning, and designer's inspirations. Brandon showed off a new scarf design, and we compared notes on design publishing. The visit was a short, but sweet wonderful time! Thanks so much to them!
