Where the curious beginner finds a life-long passion and experienced knitters find life-long friends

March 28,  2013 
Greetings!    

SLYCo. will be three years old Monday!  
  
So much has happened in these past three years, and I would like to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK  YOU to each and everyone of you who have continued to stand behind us through THICK and THIN by continuing to make SLYCo. one of your favorite LYS's!
  
In these past three years, I have seen many new friendships formed by taking the time getting to know each other, by sharing our good times and yes our sorrows.  I've seen first hand how SLYCo.'s family members have been able to look beyond a person's quirks and welcome all who have walked through our doors, making everyone feel welcome.
  
The 3 year anniversay bang will begin next Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Friday we will be kicking the day off with good food, good fun and some suprise specials and Sunday will end  with a Special Drawing!
  
  
So much planning to do, so stay tuned for further announcements!!!!

  
Easter Sunday & Fiber News
Knitters & Spinners are welcome, this Sunday, yeah, we know it's Easter Sunday, but we also know that the Easter Bunny doesn't always make it to everyone's home, so we just wanted everyone to know that we are here ready to share the day with YOU!!!  We will be spinning, knitting, eating Easter Bunny candy, cupcakes and showing off our latest spinning & knitting projects.
  
We'll save a spot for you!
