The Altered Stitch is dedicated to supporting independent yarn dyers as much as possible because we think anyone who dreams of making a living from an art form that they love should get to do it! 

We are really excited to be partnering with The Flying Kettle again!  Joyce's eye for color and unique approach to dying made her 2015 LA County Yarn Crawl appearance with us a smashing success! Since then, The Altered Stitch & The Flying Kettle have been secretly collaborating on a new project which will be unveiled on Oct. 17th, 2015 during an in store special event we are having with special guest, Anthony Casalena.  Watch our blog & newsletter for more details!


Hi, I'm Joyce - the woman behind the kettle!

The Flying Kettle is a dyeworks studio dedicated to providing wonderfully fresh and playful yarns to inspire your creative inner child. All yarn is kettle dyed and hand painted right in my own kitchen and studio in fun, juicy color ways like Tomayto Tomahto, Bazinga, and Grog-Bellied Sea Dog, that are a blast to knit, crochet and weave!   

Happy crafting!
