Celebrate Five Fabulous Years!

It’s hard to believe five years have passed since I took over ownership of Uncommon Threads–time really does fly when you’re having fun! I feel incredibly lucky to share your passion for yarn, and I’m thankful for your friendship and support.  Please drop in on Friday, November 14 for our five-year anniversary party and the Los Altos Holiday Stroll for tasty treats and a “mystery” discount from our Pick-a-Perk jar, which will include some fantastic door prizes.

Our fall class schedule continues through November and December with perfect-size projects to get you through the holidays. Of special note: the Thursday Project Class will be held as a drop-in through the end of the year, so you can get as much or as little help as you need. We’re especially excited about Sherri’s new Fall Sock KAL and the Flapper-Fabulous Beaded Necklace class.

We’re happily knitting away on our Kaffe Fassett Mystery KAL Afghan squares, trusting in his masterful color sense to make everything come together in the end. Join us on Tuesdays during the day or Open Knit Night to knit-along your Kaffe Fassett afghan or pillow.

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.
