Be A Hero with Yarn and Sticks (Cape Optional)

Fall is on the horizon, promising cozy sweaters, cool evenings and more hustle and bustle. But during these last glorious weeks of summer, we’re celebrating your everyday accomplishments and stretching the good times as long as we can. Whether you’re knitting a sweater for the first time, exploring crochet stitch patterns or learning your way around a loom, you are the hero of your own incredible fiber adventure. I hope you’re enjoying the ride and I invite you to indulge in some super opportunities–sales, classes, and a new finishing event–coming up in the next few months! Fasten your notions kit and read on…

 

Faster Than a Speeding Yarn Swift…20% off Sale July 31 & August 1

Saving money on yarn you love feels pretty fantastic, and our summer sale is the best time of the year to queue up your fall projects. For two fabulous days, save 20% off EVERYTHING we have in stock (except Madelinetosh.) The new yarns and fall pattern books have started to arrive and we have plenty of yarn in stock for sweaters, afghans, baby gifts and accessories. Think big: treat yourself to a weaving loom, ball winder or a special skein of Artyarns! Thank you for understanding that we cannot wind yarn for you on sale days, but we’ll happily do it another day.

 

   

 

More Powerful Than Addi Turbos…

Let the kids face dreary back-to-school homework on their own–we’ve got an “assignment” to make you feel like a true action hero. We had so much fun with “Finish It in February” that we’re doing it again with the “What I Did This Summer” Finishing Event. Simply bring in any project made with Uncommon Threads yarn before August 31, and we’ll enter your name in a prize drawing; the grand prize is a $100 gift certificate to Uncommon Threads! We won’t keep your identity a secret, though–with your permission, we’ll share your amazing projects on our web site, Ravelry and Facebook. Come over to Open Knit Night every Tuesday from 6 – 8 p.m. for support and encouragement to get wayward projects back on track and weave in those ends.
