Mindful Collection Needle Tasting
Thursday, November 19
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Join us this evening for a lovely online community experience with our very own virtual needle-tasting! The Artful Yarn loves the new Mindful Collection from Knitter's Pride. The Mindful Collection is about unity, peace and love - in our knitting and our lives. If you like another brand's lace tip/red cord needles, you're going to LOVE the Mindful Collection.
For our needle tasting, you'll receive either a 24" or 32" fixed circular needle (we'll choose the size) along with a small booklet detailing all of the options in the Mindful Collection as well as a couple of little gifts from us. During our online session, we'll be able to talk together about all aspects of these needles and anything else we want to discuss! Plus, place a special order and receive double Yarn Card Dollars!
Needle and materials will be mailed to you and the price includes USPS shipping. Due to the limitations of our website, it may look like this item is available for pick-up, but rest assured it will be mailed. Deadline to register: Sunday, November 15
The Mindful Collection:
As a company, in a country, that has long known and appreciated the value of meditation; Knitter's Pride felt it right to harness their knowledge of making superior knitting and crochet tools to the soulful aspects of these crafts.
With respect to the customer's knowledge and devotion to their crafts, Knitter's Pride has created a new collection that meets the creative need and encourages the practice of mindfulness.
The Creative Group at Knitter's Pride took care to carry forth the look and mood developed for the Mindful Collection Needles by choosing colors, bags, tools and packaging meant to create positive and peaceful feelings. They chose the color Teal because of its soothing blue-green tone and its undertones of grey and jade. These are colors of tranquility and renewal, and they blend well with a variety of other shades.
Words are powerful. They carry intent. Knitter's Pride has laser printed a single meditative word on each needle, one word for each size, in order to encourage focus.
The circular graphic visible on the Mindful Collection is an ancient symbol, representing the universe and ongoing life. Often seen in yoga or meditation circles, it represents the search for completeness and unity.
Knitter's Pride is proud of their commitment to the health of the planet. When it came to designing the packaging of the Mindful Collection, they took care to use biodegradable materials and inks. You can read more about their eco-compliant practices on their website.
We also love Knitter's Pride for their support of women. Any woman coming to the company for a job, gets one. Rather than see people suffering from all the evils of unemployment in their native India, they are uplifting women, families and their communities.
