Dear Friends, 

We can't believe it is already almost August! The summer is just flying by. We are working hard on finishing up new fall samples and our cool weather yarns are beginning to arrive! 

Arriving this week is a big, gorgeous shipment of the new Woolstok yarn from Blue Sky Fibers. This new worsted weight yarn comes in 21 beautiful colours and naturals and is a bouncy 100% Peruvian Highland wool. New patterning sock yarn will be arriving next week, along with a luscious new 100% merino bulky yarn and the Swoon Maine trunk show.

Our "Take It All Sale" continues though the end of the month! We still have a great selection of first quality yarn available, so stop by and take a look.

At Tangled Purls, we love to watch the successes of our customers, as they grow in their skills and accomplishments, as well as the development of our staff. This month we applaud two of our staff members as they leave Tangled Purls to pursue their new business ventures.

Erika Close has launched a new business crafting knitting project bags and notions pouches. Be sure to checkout her wares on etsy.com as IndNatureFiberStudio.

Marie Greene is growing her knitwear pattern design business and looks forward to having more time for designing, knitting, and marketing her Olive Knits creations. You can find her patterns on Ravelry and oliveknits.com.

We wish Erika and Marie the best as they pursue their new endeavors.

Tangled Purls will be welcoming two new staff members in the coming weeks. We hope you will embrace them with warmth and patience as they master our computer system, familiarize themselves with the shop, and grow in their fiber knowledge. 

Stop by the shop, watch our facebook page, and visit our website, as we share our ideas and creations. We hope you will be inspired to try something new. It's never too early to start building your holiday gift stash!

We appreciate all of our fantastic customers and love being able to encourage you, inspire you, and be your gathering place!

Classes with 
Sharon Everette 

Private Lessons  (1 hour private lessons by appointment, knit or crochet on Thurs 11:15  or Fri 1:30-3:30)  

Stitch Dr Tuesdays
This is not a "How to Knit" class - you should already know the basics and how to read a pattern. Stitch Doctor is a group session - private help sessions are available at other times, as listed above.

Please bring the project you need help with, including needles, yarn and pattern (one project at a time). Stay part of the time, or the whole time!

Class Time: 11:15 - 12:45 
Class Cost: $10 paid to the teacher

Choose Your Own Project:

Small and easily portable projects are great for summer.  Come, see, and select your next summer project from the array of lovely knits throughout the shop.  Then, if you need help getting started, join us on Fridays!           
S tart your project in class, and attend as many sessions as you need - the class is ongoing.  Once you have completed your need for help, but later need help again, you can always attend Stitch Dr Tuesdays.  If you need inspiration, check out the beautiful array of models in the shop.  I look forward to working with you; oh, and you do need to register and have your pattern and supplies ready to come to class.

Class Dates: Fridays
Class Time: 11:15 - 1:00
Class Limits: 4
Class Cost: $15 each session + supplies
