Amazing Threads - Signature Event ~ Shibui Launch ~ Shop Hop & new stuff too!
Every week I read that retail is doomed and we are all shopping on the internet. If we didn't have a local yarn shop how would we get a yarn fix? I can't even buy clothes online because they never fit and the colors are never right. Thank goodness I can shop local. And so our motto remains:
See it HERE, Buy it HERE, Keep us HERE!
Thanks to all our customers for shopping local!
Winter or at least cool weather is back but the shop will soon bloom with spring as boxes are arriving daily.
Upcoming March & April Events
Signature Needles, Shibui Spring Launch, Shop Hop, YarnOver & Sivia Harding.
March & April will keep us VERY BUSY!
AT is hosting a trunk show for Signature Needles.
Stop in Thursday, March 9 from 6-8 pm for our event kick-off.
Needles will be available for purchase Thursday March 9 through Monday March 19.
Signature needles are crafted of aircraft quality aluminum and clearly laser etched with both US and mm sizes. The needles and points are hand polished for the look of fine jewelry. They are famous for their stiletto points.
Signature needles are made in Kenosha, WI and they sell direct to the consumer. We cannot carry the needles in the store because they only retail their needles. BUT WE wanted our customers a to try them. Knit Club Members receive 5% OFF!
The Spring Debut for Shibui Yarns is March 28 ~ See it first, see it HERE! Models TOO
Watch for Updates for our Inspiring Music Theme!

Registration is now OPEN for Sivia Harding who will teach us how to select beads to knit into Arcuato.
