We are so excited for this week’s Miss Babs Pop-Up Tent event! It starts at 11 am on Friday. The biggest news about this event is that Miss Babs herself will be here!!!

So, who is Miss Babs? Babs got her nickname from her husband, a Southerner, who called her "Miss Babs.” So when she formed her own hand-dyed yarn company, it made sense to use the nickname for her company. Babs and the Miss Babs Team dye beautiful yarns in their studio in the mountains of eastern Tennessee. Her colors are inspired by nature. She loves seeing the colors that occur there and playing off them to create yarns that evoke the emotional impact of the natural world.

Shop owner Danielle met Miss Babs at Stitches East in Baltimore one million years ago. She was looking for a large yardage worsted weight yarn for a top down raglan design that was part of her teaching program at Knit-a-gogo (the instruction business Danielle started before opening the shop). Miss Babs had the perfect yarn - Yowza. They chatted a bit about biz (somehow Babs had time for chats back then), and Danielle asked about someday having her yarn in her upcoming shop. They had several conversations after that and decided that having Miss Babs yarns at fibre space made sense for Babs and the shop. And that is how it came to be! Miss Babs was the first hand dyed yarn on our shelves and remains a shop favorite. @missbabsyarns #missbabspopup2021

Hi. My yarn arrived yesterday. Is the blue the main and the grey multi the contrast? Looking forward to getting started. Have a great day.
Danielle Romanetti hey girl! My mama Debra Ruffing was just reading her newest Southern Living magazine and what to our wondering eyes should appear but this awesome article featuring your shop and you!!!! So proud of you making it in the big time girl!
Hey! Are you guys selling any yarn pom-poms premade? Looking at some holiday crafts and want to shop local.
Made a quick stop at your glorious shop! So much to check out. The Spincycle selection is fabulous. So great to see the colors all together in person. Be back when I save up more money’
My daughter is always sending me beautiful yarns & accessories from Fibre Space. This is a shawl I made using Noro Ito yarn & Gilliatt yarn. I really love the vibrant colors!
I want to go
Is the free face mask promo still going? I saw in an email today it was and wanted to double check. I was in on the weekend and spent over $50, but didn’t get one. No biggies if it’s not.
Can I stop by tomorrow for guidance on how to set up waist shaping on my top down raglan sleeve sweater in the round? It’s my first time trying this new concept. I can’t seem to find a decent video that helps me. Let me know. Thanks.
When will the “Making a Pom Pom” video be released for the Mission cashmere hat project?
I want to thank Fiber Space for my recent order. Love everything I received most importantly the yarn. they also included a FaceMask that I love. Thank you so much for the prompt response and delivery. So much fun to finally order from a place I have followed for years. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Can you use these photos in your monthly competition? I don't have access to Instagram and haven't been able to set up an account. You very promptly shipped me Biogarn Organic Shetland "Iced" a few weeks ago, and I used it in this sweater I designed, using a peerie from Alice Starmore and two borders from KnitPicks.
Thank you for the new mask!! Kickboxing!!
