It Started with Kris...Kris Kringle, that is. This whimsical holiday design by Kam Moorman and Barbara Stark is what helped Weeks Dye Works get to where it is today. The year was 1994, and Miranda Weeks was looking for local retailers in the Denver area willing to stock her hand-dyed fabric. Miranda passed the storefront of Ewe and Eye and Friends. Then-owners Barb and Kam looked at Miranda’s fabric, then asked a question she hadn’t been asked before: Could she dye six-stranded floss?
A few days later, she returned with 10 colors. Barb and Kam incorporated the colors into the Kris Kringle design. The rest, as they say, is history. 17 years later, Weeks Dye Works features more than 200 colors in its 6-strand floss collection and other fibers and fabrics which include: 2-strand floss, 3-strand floss, sewing thread, crewel wool, linen weaver’s cloth and wool fabric.
In a nod to their history with Ewe and Eye and Friends, Miranda and John are offering the Kris Kringle pattern in an exclusive kit. 25% of the proceeds will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. John and Miranda thank Ruth Sparrow, owner of Twisted Threads, for her generosity in making this special kit happen. Wholesale contact Weeks Dye Works.
