We’ve got an awesome grand prize set up for you to ogle, and several second chance prizes which you can get tickets for with every purchase!
But we also wanted to take time during this crawl to explore some more of the fun things you can do with yarn!
Thursday, from 12-3, join us for a Rug Hooking demo with amazing artist Phyllis Poor!!  She how she envisions and creates these stunning pieces!  Maybe you’ll be inspired to try your hand at Rug Hooking!
Also Thursday we’re open until 8 – so come on in and join us for our regular knit night which is always tons of fun!
Friday, from 12-3, come see Anne Bertolino give a fantastic weaving demo!  Anne is a gorgeous weaver with more ideas and plans than you can imagine!  We’ll have Cricket and Zoom Looms for sale as well because we have already seen how infectious Anne’s weaving is!  If you don’t want to take the weaving plunge, Anne will also have some of her beautiful finished work for sale.
Sunday, from 1-4, you’ll want to see Diana Newton-Wood and her Twice Knit demo!  Diana was on the Twice knit train even before it left the station and has already made a beautiful USB blanket!  Come check out this fun and gorgeous extreme stash buster!  And if you’ve already started on this path – bring a picture or your finished item and our Twice Knit Bingo Card anytime during the crawl and save 20% off all regular priced yarn!
And just a wee little note on parking – there’s tons of street parking, parking across the street at the gas station, and a huge municipal lot across the street – just be sure not to park at the convenience store next to us.  Thanks!
