Superbowl Sale

What could make the Superbowl even more super? A yarn sale, that’s what. Yes, it is time once again for our annual Superbowl Sale. Here’s the scoop:

The sale will take place Superbowl Sunday, February 2, from 12-4 p.m.

Items in the clearance corner will be 40% off their original prices (and there are some great books in that corner!). Everything else (even books and patterns) will be 30% off, except for Encore, Coffee Beenz, and needles and notions, which will NOT be included in the sale.

Come join us– this is always a fun event.

Sale is limited to stock on hand, and does not apply to holds and special orders. All sales are final– no returns or exchanges.

New Class Schedule

We’ve just updated our schedule which takes us through May. All the perennial favorites are there, with a sock class back by popular demand. Note the Tunisian Afghan class–this is not just the classic version (very nice itself), but an argyle one!

Don’t neglect the “social” portion of the schedule–Knitters’ Evening and Day Out are both indulgent treats, while UFO Night as well as Knit, Nibble, & Sip are totally free and totally fun.

Check out all the classes and sign up soon.

You’re Invited

We hope you’ll join us for some free and fun upcoming events.

First, on Saturday December 14th we’ll knit and crochet from 4pm till 10pm (or maybe even later!). We’ll snack, we’ll talk, we’ll admire each others’ work, and we’ll either finish up holiday projects or take a break from them in favor of some purely recreational crafting. You’re welcome to bring a snack for the group if you like, but really your presence is contribution enough.

Then on Mondays December 16th and 23rd you are also welcome to join us from 6:30pm till 8:30pm for general knit and crochet fun. Even without an official teacher present, I’m sure any knit or crochet questions you may have will get answered.

Please join us!

Black Friday Break

Are you an enthusiastic and successful Black Friday participant, or would you rather knit nettles on red hot needles than set foot in a mall that day?

Whichever camp you fall into, I hope you’ll join us for a time on Friday. You can have some refreshments, tell us of the great deals we missed, or about why you never shop the day after Thanksgiving. You can sit and knit or crochet for a while–the only activities I know that let you simultaneously achieve a Zen-like state AND shorten your gift list. If you ask, we’ll tell you about our favorite luxe, last-minute, or practical gifts to make. I’ll even show you my Secret Project (sshh, don’t tell).

We have bunches of new yarn to show you from Plymouth (sparkly sock yarn, anyone?), Blue Heron, Berroco, Happy Fuzzy Yarn, and others.

We’ll be open our regular hours on Friday (10-5:30) and Saturday (10-4) but will close at 3 pm on Wednesday November 27th.

Come take a break with us!

Summer Reading

When does summer end? For some it ends whenever school starts, or on Labor Day, or when the cottage is closed for the season. For no particular reason, I feel the need to extend this summer as long as possible, so we are going to have a Summer Reading Sale all the way through September 21st, the last day of summer according to the calendar. We have a phenomenal assortment of books on sale at half price, to dream over in a hammock now and use to inspire projects starting right away and continuing all through the year.

Our new fall schedule has been posted; stay tuned for the specialty classes which will be up shortly.
