Super Sunday Yarn Swap
Sunday, February 4 • 12 - 5 p.m.

Make a fresh start to the new year with a "cleansing" of your yarn stash! This annual event is popular for a good reason: it feels great to let go of mistake purchases and outdated yarn and know they'll find a happy home elsewhere. Please bring only clean, full skeins of yarn--no scraps or rug yarns--and go home with treasures from someone else's yarn basket. Any yarns left at the end of the swap will be donated to a local charity. We will begin accepting donations on January 28.


Love Fest Fibers Launch
Wednesday, February 7 • 5 p.m.

We're excited to carry this unique line of super-bulky wool, developed in San Francisco and perfectly suited to quick-knit and -crochet home goods which are all the rage right now. Britt-Marie Alm, owner of Love Fest Fibers, will be in the shop to tell you all about the yarns, how they're made and what you can do with them! Join us for the basket class in the evening and you'll leave with your own home accessory.

Wednesday, February 21 • 5 - 7 p.m.

Get the very first peek at the gorgeous spring/summer collection from Isager! We've long been fans of this Danish brand, with its clean, sophisticated and wearable styles.

The event is free, but RSVP is requested so we can plan accordingly.


Finish It in February
Through February 28

Get ready for spring by finishing up your winter projects while there is still a chill in the air!  We'll show you some love for your hard work: every project you complete using Uncommon Threads yarn is good for an entry into our prize drawing, so keep those needles, hooks and shuttles moving until the last minute of February.

No matter when you started your project, as long as it was completed between October 1, 2017 and February 28, 2018 it is eligible for the drawing. If you've completed a sweater, you'll also receive a 10% coupon toward a future purchase. Winners will be drawn in early March; the grand prize is a $100 gift to certificate to Uncommon Threads!

How to enter: send your yarn and pattern information, plus a photo, to Stephanie at; or stop by the shop and fill out an entry form. We're happy to take photos of your work as well!
