APRIL 2018
April is a busy month, and it's busy here at the yarn shop. We're going to go a bit "bare bones" for April, because those of us working, and teaching here have a lot of extra things going on this month, too! We'll work on some new class projects and ideas to bring to you in May!
In the mean time - here are some of what is going on in April:
First of all, a reminder that the shop is now on Spring/Summer hours:
Tuesdays 10-7 Wed.-Fri. 10-5 Saturdays 10-3
This means that we CLOSE AT 3 on SATURDAYS!!
New Sock Yarns!
