Little Piggy Trunk Show!
We are thrilled to have Linda Gavaldon of Little Piggy Patterns here on Wednesday.  She is bringing samples of her patterns and her samples will be with us through Saturday.
Check out her patterns on Ravelry or on her Website
Linda is known for her fantastic designs for wash clothes and baby blankets.
 
We have several yarns that will work beautifully for 
Little Piggy Patterns:
Solo Lino is a 100% linen yarn that feels like a dream!  It is 80% recycled linen and 20% new.  Still very strong and capable of knitting blankets and face clothes.  It is a lovely sport weight yarn.
 
 
Ecotone is ideal for not only wash clothes and blankets but is fantastic for weaving!  It is a loosely spun 100% cotton, worsted weight yarn.  This is the yarn to use for Kitchen Towels!
 

Pima 100 is a DK weight, 100% pima cotton from Berroco.  It is a lovely quality cotton with a gorgeous natural sheen.  It has amazing stitch definition and will translate into lovely baby blankets and more.  
 
July Jubilee!
We are going to have our July Jubilee Drawing on Wednesday night!  You should have received red raffle tickets for each item you completed.  It is not too late!!  Bring your form in Tuesday or Wednesday before 6:30 pm to get in the drawing.  You do not need to be present to win.  We will announce the winning ticket number by email.
