Be Inspired, Learn, and Create with Tolt Studio
We've had a lot of time to reflect and refocus here during this pandemic, and one big discussion we keep having is: how do we help our customers that are largely online now? We need a new way to share the supportive things we normally do in the shop. Here at Tolt Yarn and Wool, we are constantly, and caringly, educating our customers on a multitude of topics- from yarn substitutions; where different fibers come from; how to prepare for a project; and so on. We have a lot to share!
Our shop and our interactions with customers is the true heartbeat of Tolt Yarn and Wool. During this time away, when we don't have in-person customer service and stitch circles, we need another avenue to extend community connection and belonging. We are now pleased to bring you Tolt Studio.
Tolt Studio is our new education space; a space where we can connect with you every month with special guests: teachers, designers, creators, and community voices to further the enrichment of your craft and yourself. Until we are back in person, our studio will be complimentary to all who want to attend. We hope you will join us in the spirit of learning, connection and exploration into this amazing community of knitters, crocheters, sewists, creators and makers.
Upcoming Tolt Studio Events:
October 21, 2020 : Julie Weisenberger
We are pleased to present the next series for Tolt Studio, which is centered on project beginnings. We find the most wonderful projects, but beginning, getting (and staying) organized can often be a struggle. Julie Weisenberger, founder of Cocoknits; has perfected and developed the most useful tools and processes (check out her Cocoknits Method) for making everything begin and run smoothly.
Julie Weisenberger has designed knitwear for large and small companies, magazines, and runs an amazing business which provides us makers with high quality notions. In addition to all that, she has taught countless classes and workshops. We are so excited she will be our next guest presenter for Tolt Studio.

Past Tolt Studio Presenters:
September 16, 2020 : Kayla Fernandez of Maressa Made
To kick off Tolt Studio, we welcomed Kayla Fernandez of Maressa Made. Kayla is a motivational powerhouse within our fiber community committed to "purposeful empowerment of your passion".
Kayla spoke about inclusion and belonging which is crucial in this disconnected yet connected world we are currently living in. As we feel more and more detached from each other, how do we reconnect and belong again? How do we celebrate and motivate ourselves and each other?
"I believe in ensuring every person's inner creative is recognized, affirmed, and elevated"
- Kayla Fernandez
