Koigu Collector's Club: July: RAKU Stores

Now that our July Koigu Collector's Club members have received their limited edition yarn, RAKU, we asked them to send us where their RAKU is set up in their shops, an updated photo of their store and tell us a little about their shop's plans for this summer!

Where's the RAKU at?

Summer events at Knitty City: "till the end of August, people gather to knit Found But Not Lost scarves on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00.  Beginners learn, and knitters made 300+ scarves last summer.  Over 90+ people attend these weekly sessions, and we are hoping to make 400+ this summer. We love our National Parks, and we are carrying Knitted Wit's National Parks series. We are continuing our Welcome Blanket project with Tuesday Knitalongs. We started our series of Sunday stories where we highlight members of our community on IG and Facebook."

This summer at Marji's: "Working on some of the models for fall classes! We have lots of ideas. We’re also busy putting together new Colorscape Cowl kits, and more colorways in some of the other Koigu scarf and mitt kits."

FiberWorks

What's up at Fiberworks this summer: "I-75 Yarn Crawl August 7th through 12th, which goes from Michigan through Ohio and Kentucky to Tennessee. Another craft that inspires me is weaving, and no other hand-dyed yarn than Koigu  works better for Linen Stitch, which looks so much like a woven fabric. This summer we are continuing the Building with Lace class, our Saturday morning sock classes, and Saturday afternoon Learn to Knit classes, while planning some exciting classes for the fall in Linen Stitch, Entrelac, and COLORWORK."
