We are so happy to announce that Loop will be back in New York this November for our second pre-Holiday pop-up shop. We will be there from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th November for a full weekend of shopping, workshops and social events.

We’ll be returning to the Here Now space in the West Village and we’re so excited!

Tickets for the workshops and events will be available to book from Sunday 14th July at 2pm Eastern time (7pm UK time) on Eventbrite. Read on to find out more!

Our special guests this year will be Julie Arkell and Tif Fussell, who will both be teaching wonderful workshops, and Sini and Jonna of Laine Magazine! The lovely ladies from Laine will be flying from Finland to join us, and will host a knit afternoon with us. (This will be a ticketed event.)

In addition to our workshops, we will be fully-stocked with yarns from our very favourite British and French indie dyers. We’ll be bringing beautiful yarns from Qing Fibre, La Bien Aimee, Life In the Long Grass, Lain’Amouree and The Border Mill amongst others. There will also be some very special Viola yarn and a sparkly Holiday base from Madelinetosh.

The popup shop will be open from 10am-6pm both Saturday and Sunday and this is open to everyone – there is no need to book entry to the shop.

There will be loads of gorgeous kits, using these yarns, lots of beautiful haberdashery from brands like Au Ver A Soie and Plant Dyed By Mehlsen and special things that make perfect gifts are being handmade for the popup from talented people on this side of the pond. We will also have highly sought-after Kaliko project bags and special ‘Loop in NYC’ tote bags!

Yarn for Mabel’s Sister will be available, as well as new Tiny Tassels kits using La Bien Aimee in our special Cashmerino base! They are super gorgeous. A brand new kit will be launching over the weekend of our NYC pop-up, with a brand new design for Loop by Olga Buraya-Kefelian, aka Olgajazzy. It’s totally stunning and we can’t wait to show you.

The Mabel’s Sister cardigan – this one is knitted in Viola Dk, but we will have La Bien Aimee Merino DK with us in great colours to make this with adorable mini samples so you can see how the colours look together knit up!

There will be a launch event for the pop-up on the evening of Friday 15th November, which will be ticketed, with our wonderful host Paola, of mYak yarns, as well as Susan, Julie and Tif, (and perhaps Sini and Jonna too!) which will be at the Here Now space. This VIP preview evening is great as you’ll have your pick of all the goodies we are bringing with us!
