Amazing Threads: We Inspire...You Create, Josh in the House & Food Shelf Donations a RECORD



It was a whirlwind weekend and I enjoyed meeting and thanking every one for their donations to the Food Shelf and for participating in the Shop Hop. Even before the Hop started on Thursday, our generous community of knitters and crocheters had donated more than $27,000 to local Food Shelves.  I can't wait to see the TOTAL DONATION $'s for this event.  I will post totals on Friday after we draw Shop Hop WINNERS!
FOR DONATING to the Food Shelves!

OUR BEST YEAR EVER!

 

Josh Ryks, a talented, local designer created our Shop Hop pattern, Angularity with Mira Cole's fabulous LaJolla dyed in Razzleberry Cobbler & Obsidian.  A great hit.  AND YES we have Razzleberry Cobbler on-hand for YOU! Angularity is available to purchase on Ravelry.

   Josh was at the shop tonight sharing his designs with our Tuesday Night knitters.  What FUN!  TRUNK SHOW IS STILL AT THE SHOP

Knitter's Pride Knit Blockers are BACK IN STOCK and are a great new way to block knitting projects! They're so easy to use, they'll really speed up the blocking process.

We revealed our 7 exclusive colors in Wonderland Yarns last week.  My favorite is Marsala.  We created a bit of confusion on availability.  Our exclusive colors and this yarn are ALWAYS available at our shop.  Mad Hatter is in - Come and touch!
