New and exciting things!

Hello knitters!

Well it certainly has been awhile since I have connected to you all via cyberspace here. When I start hearing customers say "I was starting to get worried about you because you haven't been sending emails" that means it's time to hunker down and get back at 'er. I have had an incredibly busy summer this yarn from my kids camps (which were AMAZING) to scheduling new classes, I was the MOH in a wedding, I renovated my apartment then I took a week long vacation (finally, I know!) and right after coming back from that, literally the day after I drove down to Barrie for a trade show and then last weekend drove to the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter's Fair and set up my double booth for a day of crazy fun! On top of all of that... I have now caught a cold and have had to stay home for a few days. But I'm back now with tons of new info to share!

all of this yarn....


Fit in this car..... with me AND Lily....


We have TONS of new yarns in stock with more arriving for the fall season! We have new magazines, accessories and samples! We have some other exciting things coming about but you all know how I like to keep secrets until we are ready for the big reveal. Check out all our photos below of all that is new and exciting and come in to the shop to see the beauty in person!



Our class schedule is listed at the bottom. We are working on our schedule for our specialty technique classes so stay tuned for that.

For the first time ever, we have a booth at the Creativ Sewing and Needlework festival the last weekend in October! Rhichard Devrieze and his amazing hand dyed yarns will be a specialty at our booth that weekend so be sure and pop by to check it out if you will be in attendance. I will also be teaching a few classes at Creativ so if you are out of town and have always wanted to attend one of my amazing classes, sign up soon!
