Last Saturday Free Workshop!
Don't forget, we host free workshops on the last Saturday of every month.  If you happen to miss one, you can find the directions on our YouTube Channel and in our News Feed.
Our next workshop is March 30th.  You can stop in anytime between 12pm and 3pm to make The Berry Bracelet.
Berry Bracelet
There have been boxes of new yarns piled high to the ceiling over the past couple of weeks.  We have TONS of new yarns in stock!  I'd list them all, but I don't want you to miss out while you're reading the novel that would be our list of new yarns!  We'll paraphrase.  We have a LOT of new cotton blends, linen blends, viscose blends, Noro yarns, and sock yarns.

When we get new yarns in, that means we have to make room for them.  When we make room for them, that means there are now more yarns in the clearance bins!  Stop in to take advantage of the great savings before they're gone!
