Hello Friends,

I hope this finds you enjoying the Holiday Season, finished with all of your shopping (Anyone have time to help me?!?), with some yummy Christmas goodies in your kitchen, and looking forward to time with family and friends.  Christmas has really snuck up on me this year -- rarely have I been less "prepared" for the festivities to come -- so I think the best thing to do at this point is just relax and enjoy it, whatever it is!

Our holiday hours are as follows:

  • Tuesday, December 24 -- 10 AM - 3 PM
  • Wednesday, December 25 -- Closed
  • Thursday, December 26 -- PRE-INVENTORY SALE, 10 AM - 8 PM
  • Friday, December 27 -- PRE-INVENTORY SALE, 10 AM - 6 PM
  • Saturday, December 28 -- PRE-INVENTORY SALE, 10 AM - 4 PM
  • Sunday, December 29 -- Closed
  • Monday, December 30 -- Closed (Inventory)
  • Tuesday, December 31 -- 10 AM - 3 PM
  • Wednesday, January 1 -- Closed
  • Thursday, January 2 -- Regular Hours Resume

As noted on the hours listing above, December 26 - 28 is our annual Pre-Inventory Sale!  Our entire in-stock inventory will be discounted 20% for these 3 days.  The more you buy, the less we will have to count on December 30!  Don't miss this rare opportunity to add to your stash (colder weather is coming....) or stock up on class supplies for the upcoming semester.  We will also be adding yarns to our sale corner at 50% off their original price -- check it out the next time you're in the shop.

I want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who contributed to our support of the Reindeer Express campaign at The Nest.  Collectively, you contributed approximately 100 items, so we took those items, plus our matching contribution of $100, to The Nest and added your generous gifts to those of others from our community.  I think there are going to many happy little children on Christmas morning!  We hope to make this an annual event as long as The Nest can use the help, so stay tuned...........

Classes start again on January 2, so take another look at the class schedule from the fall/winter newsletter -- many new classes are available after the first of the year, and already on the schedule.  We will be adding more new classes as the spring semester progresses, so watch your email for announcements of additions to our class lists.
