Update (1/16/15)

Dear Customers,

If you've tried to reach us this afternoon by phone, you no doubt have been somewhat frustrated!  Mid-afternoon our phones just stopped working......they ring, we answer, and are met with dead air.  From what we understand, when you call, it rings, then stops and you get the dead air on your end!  We've reported the problem, they tested the line and said it was "fine" (!), so are going to have so send someone out to check things out.  Why do things like this always happen on a Friday afternoon?  We hope to have the phone working again this afternoon or tomorrow, but until then please bear with us!  You can post to our FB page, send me a message via the contact page on this web site, or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Our internet is working fine, for now..... We'll check regularly for messages and get back to you ASAP.  Thanks for your patience!

What's Up? (12/24/14)

As I write my last post for 2014, I find myself reflecting back over the past year, and how many changes have occurred in my life, in the lives of those I love, and in the shop.  It has been a year of hard work, some frustrations and disappointments, some sorrows, and much joy and love.  I hope that you can point to many good memories of the last year in your life, and feel growth and positive change has occurred from those inevitable difficult times.  May many blessings be showered on you in 2015 as we all seek to live our lives in a positive manner in a most challenging world. 

We have our annual Pre-Inventory Sale starting on Friday, December 26, and continuing on Saturday, December 27, Monday, December 29 and Tuesday, December 30.  As usual, our entire inventory will be discounted 20%, with the exception of special orders and items already discounted 50% in our sale corner.  Use those holiday gift certificates and "mad  money" to start the new year out with some beautiful new yarn added to your stash.  Maybe you knitted or crocheted up so many holiday gifts that your stash is depleted -- so build it up at a discount!  Want to get started on some cross stitch or needlepoint ornaments for next year's gift giving?  Take advantage of this discount opportunity!  We hope to see you in the shop in the coming days.

We have several knitting and crochet classes from last fall's class schedule that are starting in January and February.  Check out the class listings and class calendar for descriptions and detailed information.  There are pictures of each project posted on the Project Gallery page.  Some of those that might interest you include the Brioche Branches Scarf, Duplex Reversible Cowl, Vermont Shawl, Iszara Shawl, Crochet-A-Zoo animals, Tiny Tux Sweater, the Crochet Cable Afghan Series, Crocheted Ziggety Scarf, and the Crochet Sweater Workshop.  Our new class schedule for Spring/Summer 2015 will be posted in mid to late February. 

Our Help Sessions for the winter are on Saturdays, January 17, February 14 and March 14.  As usual, they are held from 1:00-4:00 p.m.  The cost to attend is $12.  Please call to reserve your chair if you plan to attend. 

We remind you that Warm Up America! does not meet for their regular Tuesday meetings during the months of January and February.  We will continue to take donations of blocks and afghans during this time and distribute yarn to those who need it.  If you have any questions about the program, please call the shop or ask us next time you are in. 

We contributed 89 bright blue and yellow scarves to Kentucky Special Olympics for the 2015 Games thanks to the generous efforts of many of you.  They were thrilled to receive them, and the athletes will wear them proudly in the upcoming games!  Many thanks!

See you at the pre-inventory sale!

SPECIAL OLYMPICS SCARF PROJECT

The deadline for receipt of scarves for the Special Olympics Scarf Project is fast approaching.  We have extended the deadline from December 1 to Saturday, December 6.  If you purchased yarn for the scarves and have not yet brought your scarves back in, get those needles and hooks busy!  The scarves must be knitted or crocheted in both of the two colors chosen for this year's KY olympics, and be 6" wide and approximately 54" - 60" long.  The scarves should be washed and put in individual zip lock bags, with a note from you if you would like to do so.  We still have yarn available for 8 more people to purchase if you would like to participate in this worthy project!

Watch for our mid-December email with special Christmas holiday hours and details about our annual

Have a blessed Thanksgiving weekend -- one of our greatest blessings is you!
