Local Yarn Shop Day takes place on Saturday, April 27 from 10 am to 5 pm! Please join us for a celebration of brick and mortar yarn shops created by our yarn industry trade group – TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) and designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners to drive awareness and celebrate their craft.
Plymouth Yarn is participating by offering a coupon code for 10 of their favorite pattern downloads on Ravelry, but the code is available in-store only, when you purchase Plymouth yarns!
Knitting Fever is offering our shop access to their entire PDF library of patterns – which means that if you purchase a yarn offered by KFI (all the yarns we carry from Noro, Juniper Moon Farm, KFI Painted Desert and Painted Sky, Ella Rae and Katia) you can get a free pattern from us.
Nancy Livak will be here from 1 pm – 5 pm to facilitate the Stitch Doctor! You can come in and bring your projects with technical difficulties and get hands on help to fix problems. We’ll also have knitting graph paper and colored pencils so you can try your hand at designing color charts for your knitting projects.
Ruth Stoneman will be here offering a Tapestry Crochet class from 11 am- 1 pm (you should pre-register for this!) to make this adorable clutch.
We hope you will stop by for some fun fiber crafts (and maybe some cookies!) to support your Local Yarn Shop! See you Saturday!
Gull Wings Knit Along Date Change!
We’ve had to change the date for our knitalong kick-off. The official kick-off for the Gull Wings/Pi Shawl knitalong will be Friday, April 26! Cindi will be here in the late afternoon/early evening to get people started if they need help. Gull Wings is a beautiful and easy lace shawl and we’d love to encourage you to try some lace knitting if you haven’t! We have the perfect yarn for it, too – Juniper Moon Farm Findley Dappled! We have four gorgeous colorways for you to choose from. We hope you will knit along!
