Shop Hop 2017

Monday, April 10th, 2017

Whew! MN Yarn Shop Hop 2017 is done. What fun but we are tired!

 


The theme for the shop hop was Inspired by Music. Our shop theme was Broadway!

 

 

We were inspired by a photograph that was taken of the cast of Hamilton in Vogue Magazine in 2015. I’d share that pic here, but we don’t have permission to share it on our blog and we don’t want to get in trouble:)  But, you can click here and see it!

 

Sweetgeorgia Yarns worked hard to make sure our vision came to life. We love the finished product!
We have a few skeins remaining if you want to check that out click here.

 

 

 

Carroll designed a shallow shawl with a ruffle for our pattern. We were inspired by the cravat, the neck accessory, that was a wardrobe staple in the musical. Our is a modern take on this traditional piece. We love it. It’s long enough to tie at your neck and not too deep in the front. Perfect.

 

 

It’s free on Ravelry, download your copy by clicking here.

 

Thanks to all who donated to the food shelf in our area.  We’ll update you with total donation amounts soon!

 

Can’t wait to start planning next year.

Shop Hop Donations Begin

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

 

Starting today we have MN Yarn Shop Hop EZ and VIP passes available with donations.

 

What do the passes get ya?

 

Well, in addition to the great feel goodness of making a donation to a local food shelf, you’ll get some other cool things too.

 

The EZ pass is a $50 donation. You’ll get to take home this year’s canvas tote bag and you’ll be guaranteed the collectible pin from each shop you visit. You’ll get the tote bag the day you donate, so you won’t have to worry that we’ll run out.

 

The VIP pass is a $100 donation. You’ll get the tote bag and the collectible pin for each store you visit as well as a 20% off coupon good for whatever you purchase at one of the participating shops. You’ll also be entered into a drawing to win the custom dyed shop hop yarn. We are drawing 2 names, so you will split the 14 skeins with another lucky winner. That means you go home with 7 of the custom yarns!

 

We love the shop hop. It’s so much fun to see all of you!

 

Can’t make it into the shop to get your pass, just call us or drop us an email. We can take payment over the phone or you can mail in a check. We’ll have your bag and passport waiting for you!

 

And of course we welcome you to Give as you Go too!

 

See you at the hop!

Carly's First Thanksgiving

Carly’s First Thanksgiving

We hope you enjoy a low stress, food filled Thanksgiving. We’ll be closed on Thanksgiving to do the same, but we’re back open at 9am on Friday!

 

It’s back!  Our Plaid Friday sale is happening again!

Come to Stillwater at 9am on Black Friday, November 25th 2016.
.
Downtown Stillwater is doing their Sleepyhead Doorbusters again this year.  We are joining The Plaid Friday revolution.  Want to know more about what all the cool kids are doing?  Click here.

There will be fun things happening that day and all season long downtown.  Check out Discover Stillwater for the details on the other happenings…
.
Here are our plans for Plaid Friday, November 25th.
.
-20% off everything in the store and online from 9am – noon. Yes, that includes our prepackaged kits AND Makers’ League projects!
.
-The first 20 people in store get an additional 20% off coupon to use in the store at another time.
.
-Self Striping Sock yarn will be 20% off all day long.

-Cascade Yarns 220 worsted and 220 superwash worsted will be 30% off all day long!

.
Come join us.

A few little rules:
.

  • We can’t hold yarn for you before the sale.  So if you have something on the hold shelf that is waiting to be purchased, that yarn won’t be included in the sale.  That just isn’t fair!
  • Discount is only good on in stock merchandise.
  • We’ll do our best to wind your yarn that day, but the winder will be working overtime.  So either you’ll have to be patient, or leave your yarn and we’ll wind it up for you to pick up later!
  • You have to be in a good mood.  We can’t have crabby, overfed knitters, crocheters, spinners and weavers wandering about!
