Nomadic Knits: Boutique Magazine Launch Party

Nomadic Knits is a boutique magazine featuring beautifully designed knitwear, local fiber producers, dyers, and shops. Each issue will focus on a different region of the world and highlight the things that make that region so special. The first issue focuses on Florida and we are so excited!

Join us for the Nomadic Knits launch party! Tuesday, September 11 from 4pm-8pm

We will have a trunk show of the fantastic designs featured in the magazine and host a knit-along. So grab your needles, grab your friends and enjoy an evening of relaxation and fun!

Melissa and Becky will be here to sign magazines. Becky and Melissa met and became great friends through their love of yarn and knitting. They continuously enable each other to buy ALL the yarn and knit ALL the things.

Becky recently sold her house, her yarn shop, and most of her belongings, and is pursuing her dream of traveling the country in a van with her poodle, Bubba. Follow her travels on Instagram @thecuriousadventures.

Melissa is the designer behind Melissa Kemmerer Designs (you may recognize the name from the many models we have on display at Four Purls), and she travels between upstate NY and southern Florida, knitting wherever she happens to be. Follow her on Instagram @melissakdesigns.

Becky and Melissa are determined to stay connected through their love of knitting and all things fiber, and you can follow their pursuit of local makers and fiber artists on their Instagram @nomadicknits. Melissa and Becky believe that local is where you are right now, and wherever you find your people; it is not just a place, but a sense of community and belonging. We could not agree more!

It’s always a party at Four Purls! Will you be joining us from out of town? If so, we have a local rate available at 2 great hotels in Winter Haven.  Both the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn offer our guests a discounted rate (and you can still earn your rewards points).  Be sure to call the hotel directly and ask for the Four Purls local rate.

In addition to all the great wheels and looms available from Kromski, we are happy to offer Kromski Polish Merino available in an assortment of colors and sizes, including 8oz, 16oz, felting packs and bumps.
