Finish It in February!

We’re casting ourselves as your personal trainers this month to give you a friendly but firm boost to finish your lingering projects. Our winter classes will give you the skills, and our Finishing Rewards Program will give you the motivation to get the job done! You can win prizes and get the recognition you deserve for every project you finish in February using Uncommon Threads yarn.

The holidays might be over, but yarn is a year-round obsession for us. We’ve added Classic Elite Chateau and Chalet to our to our shelves, Rowan’s new cotton Summerlite 4 ply is freshly unpacked, and we’re expecting new colors of Swans Island Eco-wash Sport any day now. Take a look at all our new fall/winter yarns, or browse the list of yarns in stock.

Our winter class schedule continues to expand 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 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.
