Sharon's Retirement Celebration
Saturday June 3rd from 12 - 1
Can you believe it has been a year since Sharon retired?  We have long wanted to honor her amazing impact on HOKC and all of us -- the store would not be here without her!!  But her first year of retirement has been far from relaxing.
 
On Saturday Sharon is teaching a class so we have her as a captive audience!  We will have a potluck lunch at noon.
 
We have a card and are collecting money to buy Sharon an iPad Pro -- no obligation, only if you want to contribute.  She is a trained water color artist but stopped using the paints due to chemical irritation.  The pro and pencil would allow her to illustrate in watercolor again!
 
Mystery Shawl KAL 
is almost here!
Carol designed a beautiful and fun shawl for our Mystery KAL!  It is knit out of DK weight yarn on a size 8 needle!  It is fast and fun.
 
We have bundles already picked out for you in store so come in pick your colors.  We cast on June 7th.  
 
All updates will be on Ravelry and in store every Wednesday.
 
Click here for materials sheet.
 
We shot support videos for the shawl.  You will be able to find the videos on our YouTube channel with each Clue release.  Click here to see our video library!
 
Today is your last day to earn spots!
As you know, the Spot On program is going away.  Today is the last day to earn your spots.  But you have the entire month of June to spend them!
 
Every Thursday, when you buy, you can spin to increase your spots!  We have a wheel where you can instantly get between 2 and 6 more spots. 
 
Our new Rewards Program is already up and running.  You have been earning coupons since the day we turned the Point of Sale system on.  For every $100 you spend you earn a $5 coupon.  You do not need a loyalty card or anything -- we just let you know you have a reward! 
 
Discounts may not be combined.  Discounts cannot be used on classes, consignment items, or previous purchases.
 
Summer Top Series
I decided this class series needed further description.  The series is a total of 4 classes and each class is $15.00
  "How do you Measure Up? is a prerequisite.  
Class 1A & B is one class split into two sessions.  This class gets us started with understanding our gauge, how to make the changes to the pattern, and getting us started with the set in sleeves.  Then you get a few days to knit and come back for the other side of the shoulders.
Class 2 Is about making adjustments to fit as well as how to insert stitch patterns into a very simple top.  This class is optional.
Class 3 Review how to make a short row sleeve cap.  
 
Click here for the pattern we will use.  I would strongly recommend that you buy the ebook -- not just for the patterns but for all of the amazing info she has in the book!  
For those of you who prefer real books, you can get it on Amazon -- just follow the link on the Ravelry page.  
Check out our Calendar on our website for more details.
