The Yarn Harlot is coming to North Bay!

Many of you have heard of "The Yarn Harlot" before and I am sure many of you own her famously hilarious books... but have you seen her in person yet? No?! Well here is your chance!

Stix and Stones and the North Bay Hand Knitter’s Guild have teamed up to bring you an incredible night of fun and laughs with a lecture from Stephanie Pearl- McPhee! Her current lecture and the one we will be presenting to you is entitled “This is your brain on knitting.” If the title doesn’t already set you off then she sure will.

The lecture will be Friday May 25 at 6:00pm at the North Bay Museum! Stephanie will of course be doing her lecture and then will be available to sign books afterwards- if you have your own book then bring it along and if you wish to purchase one that evening, we will have them available at the lecture. If anyone would like to pre-order a book for that night, please send me a quick email and let me know so I can have an approximate number of how many to order in.

Stix and Stones will remain open late the night of the lecture and each ticket holder will be entitled to a 15% shopping discount for the evening and the next day. We are also organizing a "Knit in pub" gathering for after the event as well. 

Tickets for the lecture: Tickets are available at Stix and Stones and through the Hand Knitter’s Guild.

$35 for a regular ticket
$22 with a North Bay knitter’s guild membership- Limit of 2 tickets per member

To Purchase a guild membership, please feel free to contact the president of the guild, Rhiannon via email at

A guild membership gets you: A 10% yarn discount at Stix and Stones as well as special pricing for certain events and access to the guild’s monthly meetings held at St. John’s church at 307 main east. Most other yarn stores will offer a 10% discount to a guild member with a valid membership card! The membership is $20 and is valid until September 2012 if purchased now. Again, please contact Rhiannon for more details!

  1. A highly recommended evening!
    I went to a Yarn Harlot lecture a few years ago in Halifax. She had her audience (hundreds of people) all laughing for hours at the event.
