We’ll also have a hands-on weaving demonstration for both kids and adults! See you tonight!

Just a reminder that our next project class starts tomorrow afternoon! Let our skilled instructor coach you through your next project or two, or teach you how to finish off those sweaters that never got blocked and seamed! Our Thursday afternoon project class will run on May 7, 14, 21, and 28, from 1-3 PM! Register online here!

A Weekend with Julie Asselin!

Remember learning about foreshadowing in high school English class? Well, this is a prime example! Look at these amazing goodies from Julie Asselin – and this is just the beginning! We’ll be showcasing a wide variety of her yarns at our Friday evening trunk show, but if you didn’t nab one of those highly coveted spots, be sure to swing by on Saturday to see the selection! This will be a limited opportunity, as Julie will be taking most of her stock with her after Saturday. Don’t miss out!
