A Message from Mindy

Don’t miss our final day in our Danville store - Today, Saturday, August 7 until 4pm! We’ll be here to greet you one last time before we close up our shop and transition to an online-only shop. We’ll keep you updated on our offerings as we get settled on our new road.

Thank you for making our time in Danville so precious and memorable. We love you and will miss you!

Thanks to all of you, and your love of all things yarn-y, our Yarn-O-Meter is up to 70% of our goal. We didn’t quite reach our goal, and we are so grateful for your contributions and support. Thank you for your kindness and generosity as we’ve reduced our COVID-related financial obligations. We’ve loved seeing so many wonderful products going to such fabulous new homes.

We still have many shop samples, fixtures like our 5x5 cubbies, our cabinet desk, loveseat and chair set, and display items available. Come in today or send an email to schedule an appointment for next week to see what might work in your home.

Follow our progress and learn more about how we’ll support our community going forward, as we send updates via email and on Instagram and Facebook. If you’d prefer not to receive these updates, click the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of this message. We won’t take it personally!

Our website and email addresses will remain the same - please stay in touch!

With love,
Mindy, Leslie, and Cindy

Closing Sale Updates

Discounts on all merchandise, including Mystery Bags and Going, Going, Gone items, continue both in the shop and online. The discount does not apply to any of the shop samples. We've increased the discount in-store to 30% off.

We still have a wide variety of yarns and colors available for your special projects, and many needles, notions, and bags for your knitting and crocheting pleasure.

Come in or shop online to explore the hidden treasures, as we move closer to the closure of the brick-and-mortar shop.

We've had several inquiries about contributions. If you are fully stocked for yarn and notions, don't see a shop sample you'd like, and would still like to give back to help to move our Yarn-O-Meter up closer to the goal, please contact Mindy directly in the shop or via email at
Shop Sample Sale Continues
As you know, our shop has been filled with inspiring samples, thanks to the many knitters and crocheters in our community. 
  • Have you admired a few samples we've displayed in the shop? 
  • Do you need a quick gift and don't have time to knit or crochet it for someone else? 
  • Are you planning ahead for holiday shopping?
  • Looking for something unique to wear?

We have an expansive selection of beautiful hats, cowls, shawls, scarves, sweaters, baby items, and more, now available for purchase!

All proceeds from the shop sample sale will contribute to reducing the shop's pandemic loan obligations.

Closing Date and What's Next (Updated)
Our final day open for business in Danville will be Saturday, August 7 from 12n to 4pm.

We'll pack up the shop, take a much-needed break, then we'll add any remaining products to our online shop.

We'll fill orders from the online shop regularly. Shipping timeframes and details will be noted on the website.

*UPDATE* - Our Thursday "Virtual Gathering Around the Antique Table" Zoom sessions will pause until late September. Watch our newsletter for updates.

Leslie will continue offering project repair and commission service, as well as individual help appointments.

We will send an update in early September with our plan for any classes and other events.
