With the Los Altos Farmers Market opening in May, we’re offering our own “Fresh Picks” every Thursday through September! You’ll save 10% off one featured yarn every Thursday–and find inspiration in the suggested patterns and sample “tasting” ball. Browse the complete calendar of what’s in season this summer so you won’t miss the yarn you’ve been craving.
Keep your kids’ hands busy this summer with textile arts! Our week-long Yarn Camp is a great introduction to all kinds of fiber fun. Treat yourself to new techniques with our Wear it Today! One Day Woven Scarf class–or keep your projects humming along with summer sessions of Project Class.
The shop shelves are bursting with color, thanks to fresh spring arrivals; and we have fantastic trunk shows from Rowan, Isager and Bergere de France in the shop now to inspire you. And while Open Knit Night on hiatus, you can try out the new Small Project Saturdays or get help at Drop-in Knitting Help on Monday afternoons.
Have you heard? Our extended hours are now permanent! The shop is open every Sunday from 12 – 4 p.m., and late on Tuesdays until 7 p.m.
