Now until July 17th, Wool Town Bend is hosting its first event, Imperial Yarn Trunk Show! Wool Town opened on June 23rd and is quickly catching the eyes of many Bendites.
Owner of Wool Town, Katie Ketchum says, “There’s everything from a spool of yarn to yarn kits for people to buy.”
On display are sweaters designed and created by Imperial Yarn. Ketchum set up the display to inspire shoppers to create their own sweaters that look similar to the ones seen in the store.
Imperial Yarn is about two hours away from Bend in Tygh Valley. The business has created the Ralph Lauren designed US Olympic Team opening ceremony outfits in 2014 and 2018.
“I have a replica of the hats worn by the athletes from the past Olympics,” Ketchum said. “I even created a kit for people to make their own US themed hats.”
For the First Friday Art Walk on July 6th, a representative from Imperial Yarn will be in with the US Olympic Team sweaters. You can stop by, ask questions, and check out the attire you saw on TV. There will also be refreshments offered while you shop.
