Small Business Saturday!

We work with lots of various companies, almost all of whom are small and independently-owned. So when you shop with us, you aren't just supporting the people who work within our four walls; your support reaches out to all of those companies from whom we buy. One of our longest working relationships is with Plymouth Yarn, a family-owned business since 1964 (!!!), and they're sponsoring a pretty awesome promotion to support us on Small Business Saturday. This Saturday, November 24th, spend $50 on any combination of products from Plymouth, and you'll get $10 off of your purchase! The coupon only works on Saturday, so put us on your Saturday-to-do list!!  We've knit up so many samples using Plymouth over years! Here are a few of our faves:

Plus: this year for Small Business Saturday (11/24) we'll be giving away an "All Weather is Sweater Weather" zip pouch (it features Stanley on the back side!) with any $25 (or more) in-store purchase (while supplies last). Limit one per customer!


Sample Sale Time...It's THIS WEEK, Y'ALL!

Join us this Friday -- November 23rd -- at 10:00 am for our annual "Black Friday" retired shop model sale! Over the course of the year, as new yarns arrive and old ones get "retired," so do some hand-knit or crocheted (by us!) display samples. So we put them on you!

Shawls, scarves, hats, sweaters...we have over 100 retired* shop samples, each priced at just the retail cost of the yarn used to make it -- an incredible bargain! They can be yours, or you can give one as a gift (we won't tell anyone you didn't make it - just remember to remove the price tag!).

*Let us re-emphasize this: only retired samples are for sale!
