Spring yarns & patterns are on full display throughout the shop 🌸 we are ready to help you find your next project inspiration! Pictured is Tahiti, a lovely fingering weight gradient cotton from @schachenmayr
Bring your kids and your non-knitting friends with you on Saturday afternoon because we’ve got some fun things planned that everyone can enjoy.
SPINNING DEMONSTRATION (2-4pm) — Have you ever watched the fascinating process of fiber being spun into yarn? We’ll have a spinner or two at work in the shop so you can see the magic happening.
COMMUNITY YARN-BOMBING PROJECT (2-4pm) — help us get a little wild transforming a spinning wheel into a work of yarn-y art!
FREE FIBER-CRAFT LESSONS (2-4pm) — We’ll show you how to use special tools to make pom poms and flowers and discount the tools 10% so you can enjoy your new skill at home.
FREE KNITTING & CROCHET LESSONS (2-4pm) — We’ll get you started with these great hobbies and discount your first hook or set of needles and one ball of yarn 10% if you take a lesson.
And, of course, what’s a celebration without TREATS?
We hope you will join us this Saturday as we celebrate the first-ever Local Yarn Store Day! We’ve got a lot of great things planned. Here’s a peek at a few of them:
DOUBLE POINTS on yarn purchases for everyone in our Frequent Fiber Rewards program;
FREE DOWNLOAD from PomPom Press with the purchase of any PomPom title (and we still have copies of the Spring Issue of PomPom Quarterly, plus the beautiful Interpretations vol. 5 in stock).
NEW PATTERN AT A SPECIAL PRICE: We’ll have kits for the Adventura Shawl, written for Andorra by Laura Nelkin and available starting Saturday only in brick & mortar shops. On Saturday only the pattern will be the special price of $1 with the purchase of yarn.
A BRAND-NEW COLORWAY has been created by Lorna’s Laces in honor of LYS Day, and we ordered some in Solemate, their temperature-moderating sock yarn. It’s super secret until Saturday, so no picture of that one — you’ll have to come in to see it in person! : )
The Spring Finishing Frenzy is underway! Nineteen determined people have committed to finishing 65 projects. Way to go! If you’ve got some things in progress you’d like a boost to finish, it’s not too late to add your name to the list. You can sign up at the shop today or use this online form.
Remember, you must finish the project(s) by midnight on May 31st to meet your goal and get a prize!
