Here’s a quick rundown of all the fun we have planned for May this year!
It’s like a CSA for Yarn. CSY? Well, anyway, here’s how it works. You choose an amount you’d like to spend and you buy yourself a gift certificate. If you spend between $100-$199, you get an extra 5%. So you get a $105 gift certificate for $100. If you spend between $200-$299, you get an extra 10%. Between $300-399, an extra 15%, and between $400-$500, an extra 20%. This allows you to get a better value for your money, and allows me to have cash to put yarn on the shelves! It’s a great thing for all of us.
The Restocking Sale has been extended! Everything on the back wall that was for sale during “Hello and Goodbye Weekend” will be on sale until May 31. There is still a nice selection, especially of Ella Rae Superwash.
Mothers’ Day Special – Bring your mom to the shop on Mothers’ Day, and you both save 10% on any non-consignment, non-sale purchases!
Technique Class with Kathleen – learn mitered knitting with the Syncopation Bag. May 20 beginning at 1 pm. Kathleen Wanner will be back in the shop to teach us how to knit the Syncopation Bag by Sheera Designs. Kathleen writes, “The Syncopation Bag is one of my favorites because it combines the great colors of Noro, mitered knitting, I-cords, and pick-up cast-on joinery that means no seaming! Sign up to learn all of these techniques and create your own masterpiece.” Cost for the class is $15 and includes the pattern. Please call ahead or email us to reserve your spot. What you need to bring: two skeins of Noro (or other variegated wool), 300 yards of solid color wool, size 7 circular needles, size 6 double pointed needles.
Sit-n-Knit Join us every Sunday afternoon for whatever you’re working on! Knit, crochet, or spin among friends! We’ll have coffee and tea (and most likely chocolate) and good company. It’s a really nice group of people and all levels of experience are welcome.
