How does an eleven-course yarn tasting of some of the most delectable fibers you’ve ever touched sound?  Fabulous?  Yes, I thought so too, so I’ve arranged just that.  On Friday February 26 from 6 pm till 10 pm, or on Saturday February 27 from 1 pm till 5 pm we’ll hold yarn tastings for the entire wonderful Fibre Company line (distributed by Kelbourne Woolens), from lace-weight to chunky.

What we’ll be doing:  swatching, comparing notes, deciding which yarn we want first (because really we’ll probably all want most of them!) and snacking.

What it costs:  $10.00 will reserve your spot and your sampling kit.

What you’ll get:  Enough of each of the 11 yarns (on a labelled card) to make an approximately 3″ swatch, suggested directions for a sample strip composed of all the yarns, and a coupon for $10 off your purchase or special order of Kelbourne Woolens products, all packaged in a Kelbourne Woolens small drawstring project bag.  Plus one lucky participant each day will win a Kelbourne Woolens Crafters Supply Pack.

Space is limited to 12 people each day, so call or come in soon to reserve your place.  You don’t want to miss this one!

This would be a great time to purchase buttons, books, and patterns as well as yarn for your spring, summer, vacation, and even future holiday gift knitting and crocheting.  Even better, yarn for that sweater, shawl, or scarf you’ve been wanting to make for yourself!

Here’s the not-so-fine print:  Encore, needles and notions are not included in the sale, and neither are special orders or items on hold.  All sales are final–NO returns or exchanges.  We will not be able to wind any yarn the day of the sale, but you are welcome to bring it back in to be wound later.  We will not be accepting any returns of previous purchases the day of the sale.

Isn’t it time to knit or crochet with something really indulgent–but at a bargain price?  From now through January 31st Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere (worsted weight), Pure Silk (sport weight) and Luxury Silk DK will be 50% off their original prices.  This is a great opportunity to work with a luxury yarn and make something really special for yourself or a loved one, and this will be the lowest price we offer on these yarns this year.

This Week’s Sunday-Only Special

This week’s Sunday-only special is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK:  55% merino, 33% microfibre, 12% cashmere, very soft, good stitch definition, machine-washable (dry flat) and this Sunday (12/20/15) only, 40% off the original price.  Once you try it you’ll want to use it again and again.

A scheduling note:  we’ll be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after, so if an Old Village Yarn Shop gift certificate is on your wish list, you might want to let Santa know he’ll need to get that gift certificate by December 23!  We’ll also be closed December 31 and January 1.

Sunday-Only Special and New Class Schedule

This Sunday only we’ll be offering Louisa Harding’s Fleuris at 40% off its original price.  Fleuris is a blend of 70% bamboo/viscose and 30% wool that knits up at about 4 stitches per inch with great stitch definition and a beautiful gleam, in Louisa Harding’s famously beautiful color palette.  Sales at this discount will be final, so I’ll have a swatch on the needles so you can see it knitted up and work a few stitches or rows if you like before purchasing.

We also have our new class schedule available now, so check it out and start marking your calendar with all the times you want to join us, whether for learning or just for the social activities.  Call or come in to register soon–some classes fill very quickly.
