Berroco Ultra Wool Chunky!
More new fabulous yarn from Berroco. Ultra Wool Chunky is everything we love about Ultra Wool but in a heavier stitch gauge. Machine washable, durable, soft, and in a variety of colors.

We love this beautiful two-color scarf pattern. Originally knit in a different yarn, it uses the same number of skeins as Ultra Wool Chunky. Choose 3 of one color, 2 of another and follow the directions as written!

This is ME!

We're loving this new yarn from Trendsetter. ME is a soft, beautiful, bulky yarn that has a great Thick and Thin texture. It's a loosely spun single, which makes it very soft and light, especially for a bulky yarn. And, as it's a bulky, it works up quickly.

It's great for next to the skin accessories as well as garments. The pattern book, available at our web site or in the shop, has 11 different patterns from garments to accessories. Truly something for everyone. Pick up some skeins today, and declare  "This is Me"!

Learn to Weave!

Maybe you've always wanted to learn to weave. Maybe you bought a rigid heddle loom but feel you could learn more about it. If either of these sound like you, you'll want to save the weekend of September 20 to September 22 to join us for our second annual Weaving Immersion Weekend!

We'll be offering two classes suitable for a wide range of skill sets, from absolute beginners to weavers with some experience looking to upgrade their skills. Don't have a loom? Doesn't matter, you can rent a loom from us!

Spaces are limited, so the earlier you sign up, the better chance you have of securing your spot. The weaving immersion intro class is filling up fast!

Auntie Woolie Says...

We're so happy so many of you come and visit us here in the shop. We're proud to be primarily a brick and mortar local yarn store.

That said, we do ship!

Our on-line shop has thousands of items from our extensive collection. It's secure and private, and we never share your customer data with anyone. We ship yarn all over the US almost every day!

We only charge $7 to ship, unless you order at least $75, then you receive FREE SHIPPING! (Who doesn't love free shipping?)

Until next time...

Happy Stitching!
addi Rocket Squared
addi Rocket2 Squared needles

We're delighted to announce addi is making squared needles! Rocket2s are a little different than the square needles we've had in the past. These are squared off and more textured. We love that they don't have the sharp edge most square needles have. They also have a subtle texture that makes it easier to manage the yarn on these smooth, nickel plated needles.

We have all popular sizes in stock from 16" to 47" and we think they will be a big hit! They cost the same as regular Rockets or Turbos, so you're not paying extra for this new, innovative shape.

Come work with us!
No one's leaving, we just need the help!

Mystery Highway
Everything you wanted to know about yarn, but were afraid to ask!

You love the pattern, but aren’t sure about the yarn. You love the yarn, but will it work for this pattern? These are issues we face every day in the shop. In this class we will unravel the seemingly complex world of yarn substitutions . We will explore the numerous types of yarns, yarn weights, composition, yardage requirements, and more! We will look at real world substitutions using projects we’ve made in the shop. 

This class sold out, so we opened up a few extra seats!

Come join us on Saturday, August 10 from 9AM to Noon.

So we have them all on sale now for 40% off! We have some sizes left of Circulars, Single Points, Double Points, and Crochet Hooks in stock, so get them while you can!

Knit along with us!

A bunch of us in the shop have decided to have a KAL featuring the Iberian Dreams shawl!

Nothing formal, no competition, we just liked this pattern and thought we'd do it as a group.

You can use any two fingering weight yarns. We'd suggest two solids, but a striping or ombre would yield some stunning results as well!

Quilters  opens July 19 th and runs thru August 11 th .

Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 7pm and Sunday afternoons at 2pm.

Tickets are just $25 and available online at , at our shop, or at the Box Office.

Quilters - a Musical

As you know, we love our local community theatre, the Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre, CCAT for short. CCAT is bringing a very special production to the stage, the hauntingly beautiful  QUILTERS by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek. 

Sarah and her six daughters weave tales of life on the frontier and how family legacies are passed down to future generations through quilting. There are stories of struggle, of heartache, of hilarious memories, and of course, love. Threading the performances together are gorgeous melodies and memorable songs that add as much warmth to the show as a cozy quilt. 

We know many of our friends are also quilters so we're excited to be the sponsor of this beautiful show!
