Always a favorite!  Our Anniversary Summer PJ Party is July 15th from 6 to midnight. This is a potluck so grab your jammies, your knitting, and grub, and join the party.  Throw an extra chair in your car just in case...
 
Be sure to bring your July Jubilee Contest form -- there will be extra drawings that night!!
 
Wear your jammies tonight 
and get 20% off your entire purchase!
(with usual exclusions for combining discounts and consignment products)
 
This is the last day of the Indian Handcrafts Trunk Show:
  
Beautiful handcrafted items from India in them most gorgeous fabrics!  If you have some non-knitters in your life (imagine) this is a great way to pick up some early gifts -- we will have bags, throws, and diaries.
 
Birthday Club is Back!
We are excited to announce that we are bringing back the Birthday Celebrations - but with a twist!
 
For the entire month of your Birthday you will enjoy a 15% discount on all of your purchases.

Normal restrictions apply -- discounts may not be combined, they are for new purchases only, and cannot be applied to consignment merchandise or classes.
 
Weaving in August
This August we decided to focus on Weaving!  
 
Here are some of the reasons all 
knitters love weaving:
1. It is waaaaay faster than knitting!  A scarf that takes 60 hours to knit will take only 6 hours to weave (including warping time).
 
2. It is a great stash buster!!  Because it is sooo fast.   And you can use up all you bips and bops of left overs.
 
3. You know all those amazing skeins ofvariegated yarn that you only have one of -- wow it will make a fabulous scarf!
 
4. For spinners -- all of your crazy weird early spinning make fantastic additions to your weaving.
 
5. Color play -- those of you who love color will have a blast with seeing how colors blend on a loom.
 
You do need to have a loom...
We will stock the Sample It loom by Ashford for the month and will take special orders on the Knitters Looms.
 
If you are not sure yet if you want to buy a loom, we will also have several looms for rent on a weekly basis.
 
Weaving Classes:
We are still working out the details but here are some of the classes we will offer.  Peggy McIntosh, our current weaving instructor, will be busy!  Classes are limited so be sure to sign up early!
