Happy New Year!

Treat yourself in January! Browse our clearance yarns starting January 2 for guilt-free shopping and stash re-stocking on a budget. We also have a gorgeous selection of bulky yarns, including Misti Alpaca Handpaint Chunky, Berroco Kodiak, Bergere de France Duvetine… and Malabrigo Rasta and Madeline Tosh ASAP arriving around December 16. Looking for something lighter? Take a look at all our new fall/winter yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock.

Our winter class schedule is just about complete and includes knitting, crochet and weaving classes for all skill levels! We’re also bringing back the Knit Club for Kids, hosted by Clementine, starting January 15.

Open Knit Night is back every Tuesday evening starting September 9, from 6 – 8 p.m. Take a couple of hours for yourself each week and knit or crochet with our friendly group.

Please note: new shop hours started August 1. We’ll be closed on Mondays, giving us a day to catch up on administrative tasks and plan for exciting fall projects. And we’ve added a few extra hours through the rest of the week to make it more convenient for you to shop!

Be the first to learn about new yarns, sales and classes! Sign up for our email newsletter–we do not share our list with anyone. You can also find us on Facebook and Ravelry.
