Meet and Greet with Mary Robinette Kowal

End the Chicago Yarn Crawl with this unique event at Firefly Fiber Arts Studio!

Join us for a “Books and Hooks” meet and greet with award winning Sci-Fi Author and Crocheter Extraordinaire, Mary Robinette Kowal! 

Kowal's newest Lady Astronaut book series, The Calculating Stars and The Fated Sky, inspired us and our friends at Why Knot Fibers to create two custom gradient colorways that will have you seeing stars! The Calculating Stars book is already the #1 New Release for Alternate History Science Fiction and we think you’ll love the yarns to the Moon - and back!  The custom yarns will be available in Lace, Sport, and Bulky weights and can be pre-ordered below. Pick up your skeins and a copy of The Calculating Stars and mingle with Mary Robinette Kowal while we serve light snacks and drinks.
