SPECIAL YARN CRAWL EVENTS

Exclusive yarn collection from Sister Ananse.

Plied Trunk Show with Ann Weaver
Saturday July 20, 10 - 5 and
Sunday July 21, 12 - 4

Ann, founder of Plied Yarns will help you pick out the perfect project.
We will have fingering and worsted weight Twist and the new semi-solid Primaries - with loads of samples to inspire you. Ann is also bringing lots of One-of-a-Kind skeins.

Embellished Mitten Class
July 21, 5pm - 8pm

We love it when Ann is in town and can teach an in-person class.
In this workshop, we'll explore techniques to create textured, eye-catching cuffs for mittens (or fingerless mitts). We'll learn to knit fringe, Latvian braids, knitting with beads, and to pick up stitches to knit a lining for your mitten.
Reserve your seat here.

Purl Talk Trunk Show with Laura Gavins
Laura has dyed up a lot of her Yes Suri and Fuzzy Thinking yarns just for us! These yarns are great on their own, or combine them with store favorite You Soxy Thing. Laura loves to talk yarn and will help you find the perfect project for the yarn you fall in love with.
