Happy New Year!! Hope your holiday season was wonderful and filled with joy and friends. Here at the shop we've been considering how to best ring in OUR new year. We've done and inventory and made a few decisions on new yarns to stock and old ones not to! We've cleaned up and rearranged a bit and have big plans for the new year!
January is going to be fun! We're closed Jan 1&2 and will reopen with normal hours on Jan. 5! Speaking of Jan. 5, we have a special treat starting that day. Shirley Spell, an awesome local knitter is going to be in the yarn shop from 11-2 that Tuesday and others that follow. If you need knitting help, or perhaps a private lesson, this is the time! Shirley offers pattern support, private lessons and more! Drop in and get a bit of advice or just hang out and knit with us!
Speaking of hanging out and knitting with us, on Jan 6 & 20th (and the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of months to follow) a group of knitter's/crocheters/crafters will be meeting from 1-3pm. Come on in then, or Thursday Evenings for our regular Craft in (6:30-8:30).
Jan 9th Roc Day Party!--this is the day, historically, when all the women got together to resume their spinning after the holidays.
10:30-12:00 Drop Spindle class--either learn to spin or come on in and brush up on your spindle skills if you're a bit rusty. (class fee $5.00)
12:30-4:30 SPIN IN! Bring 2oz of fiber for a Fiber Sandwhich and hang out and spin for the day. Bring your wheel or Spindle! (free)
