Soft Opening Postponed

Soft Opening Postponed

 

As you know, we've been eagerly preparing to welcome you to our new home. However, after careful consideration, we've made the difficult decision to postpone our soft opening that was originally scheduled for later this month.

 

With the Fiber Festival approaching this weekend, the ongoing process of moving into our new building, and the demands of fulfilling orders, we simply wouldn't be ready.

 

We truly can’t wait to welcome you into our space, however we want to ensure that everything is just right when we open our doors to you. Your first experience with us means everything, and it's important our space reflects that.

 

We're currently working on a new date, and we'll keep you informed every step of the way. In the meantime, please stay tuned for updates. If you haven't already, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter to stay in the loop.

 

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support as we get ready to welcome you in person. Thank you for being a part of the North Bay Fiber family.

Big Dreams, Big News!

 

Today is a pinch-me moment as I share some incredible news with you. This photo captures the sheer joy of my family and me in front of the future home of North Bay Fiber!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Purchasing this building marks a monumental leap forward for our small business, a journey that began just under three years ago. Over the next few months, we’ll be transitioning our operations to this beautiful new space in Pinconning, Michigan.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The reality of this growth is still sinking in—transforming our passion for knitting and yarn into a thriving business that we can now call home. Reflecting on how far we’ve come, I’m overwhelmed with happy tears, a testament to hard work, dedication, and the incredible support from our family and community.⁣ ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As we embark on this new chapter, I want to express my deepest gratitude. Thank you for being part of our journey, for your encouragement, and support. Each time you cheer us on, share our business, and of course, purchase our yarn, you play a significant role in making these dreams come true. 

 

I'll be sharing plenty of behind-the-scenes moments as we move North Bay Fiber to our new home. If you want to witness the transformation, be sure to follow us on Instagram at @northbayfiber for all the extras!

Giving Tuesday + FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25

It's Giving Tuesday

After a long holiday weekend of shopping and promoting sales, we think it's wonderful and important to celebrate Giving Tuesday! 


What is Giving Tuesday? 
Giving Tuesday is celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It's a day to donate to charitable causes, nonprofit organizations, and encourage each other to give back to their community. 


For Giving Tuesday, we are donating 20% of today's online sales to the Michigan Sheep Producers Association


This is the 3rd year in a row that we are donating to the Michigan Sheep Producers Association. They advocate for the growth and development of the sheep industry in Michigan. They provide scholarships, mentorships and education opportunities in support of budding shepherds. After seeing first-hand the labor and dedication involved in yarn production, I am proud to donate to the Michigan Sheep Producers Association. 


After all, if they don't learn how to shear the sheep, we won't have the yarn!


Also, TODAY ONLY receive free domestic shipping on orders over $25. No code needed.


 

 

NOTE: Promo ends 11.29.23

This makes each of these skeins a very special, one-of-a-kind, NBF Catch of the Day!⁣⁣  Over this past year we have fine tuned our hand-dyeing process. As a result, there are fewer 'mistakes'; and we haven't had enough for a full update until now.

https://www.northbayfiber.com/collections/kits/products/master-angler-blanket-kit

MASTER ANGLER

 We took the Angler shawl and mirrored it to create a blanket! Worked from the center out with wide garter stripes this simple piece makes a grand statement. Our colors are inspired by the iconic Hudson Bay Blanket, but the blanket would be just as beautiful in a solid. Knit in our Heritage base, this woolly blanket will be an heirloom for years to come.

 

https://www.northbayfiber.com/collections/kits/products/angler-pillow-kit

ANGLER PILLOW
 Worked entirely in one piece, the Angler Pillow will add a pop of color and texture to your favorite room! The front panel is a large mitered square. Mitered triangles are then picked up and knit, creating easy access for your pillow insert! With 3 different sizes available, we know you’ll enjoy working up a set for your bed or sofa. 

OUTER BAY
 A  stylish color-blocked raglan cardigan that is the perfect sweater to add to your wardrobe. The Raglan yoke provides a flattering fit across all sizes and the ribbed placket hugs your neck with short row shaping, creating a gorgeous fold-over collar. Afterthought pockets are a charming accent to this top-down, cool weather staple!

SAGINAW PILLOW
Named after the Saginaw Bay, twisted cables flow in and out, creating an intricate yet surprisingly intuitive design. The stitch pattern is easily memorized. All these elements make for a fun and engaging project that you’ll want to return to time and time again, each time you redecorate. Choose from a square or lumbar shape, or knit both and you’ll have a beautiful set to accent your home!

HERITAGE SOCKS
 Wool socks are a knitter’s wardrobe staple and this cozy pair doesn’t disappoint! With a thicker DK weight yarn and simple twisted stitch pattern, the Heritage Socks are a perfect first sock for newer knitters or also a nice quick, mindless project for our experts! The simple pattern and lofty Heritage will fly off your needles!

Heritage Home Collection

Heritage Home Collection

After over a year in the making, we are thrilled to announce that our Heritage Home Collection has arrived!
The Heritage Home Collection is a thoughtfully curated, five-piece pattern collection, designed for you and your home. The collection is a collaboration between knitting friends Jill Zielinski (@Knitterella) and Dori Kershner (@florydori). All pieces are knit and designed in our signature North Bay Fiber Heritage yarn.

Our beloved Heritage yarn is light and lofty, and each pattern perfectly highlights its attributes. From a cozy cardigan perfect for layering to beautiful pillows for your home, each piece is sure to become a treasure.

Without further ado, let us introduce you to the Collection...
We took the Angler shawl and mirrored it to create a blanket! Worked from the center out with wide garter stripes, this simple piece makes a grand statement. Our colors are inspired by the iconic Hudson Bay Blanket, but the blanket would be just as beautiful in a solid. This woolly blanket will be an heirloom for years to come.
W orked entirely in one piece, the Angler Pillow will add a pop of color and texture to your favorite room! The front panel is a large mitered square. Mitered triangles are then picked up and knit, creating easy access for your pillow insert! With 3 different sizes, we know you’ll enjoy working up a set for your bed or sofa. For an extra treat, knit the companion Master Angler blanket to match!
O uter Bay is a classic color-blocked raglan cardigan, and is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Knit in the lofty Heritage yarn, this cardigan gives you all the warmth without the weight! The Raglan yoke provides a flattering fit across all sizes and the ribbed placket hugs your neck with short row shaping, creating a gorgeous fold-over collar. Afterthought pockets are a charming accent to this top-down, cool weather staple! 
Named after the Saginaw Bay, twisted cables flow in and out, creating an intricate yet surprisingly intuitive design. All odd rounds are simple knits and purls, and all cables are performed without the use of a cable needle. The stitch pattern is easily memorized. All these elements make for a fun and engaging project that you’ll want to return to time and time again, each time you redecorate. Choose from a square or lumbar shape, or knit both styles and you’ll have a beautiful set to accent your bed or sofa!
Wool socks are a knitter’s wardrobe staple and this cozy pair doesn’t disappoint! With a thicker DK weight yarn and simple twisted stitch pattern, the Heritage Socks are a perfect first sock for newer knitters or also a nice quick, mindless project for our experts. They are lightweight but will keep you warm during the cold Winter months. The simple pattern and lofty Heritage will fly off your needles. We can’t wait to see these peeking out of your favorite boots!
