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!

What a fun weekend!

 

Our first experience at Vogue Knitting Live was so much fun, even the Star Tribune thinks so!

What a fun way to wake up this morning!  Our cut out in the paper:)

 

We took so many pictures of all of you with the cut out…

We saw so many familiar faces, and met so many new people. We shared our Makers’ League kits and some of our most popular projects with the fiber junkies at Vogue Knitting.

 

Thanks for stopping to chat with us. We’ll have the cut out set up at the shop for your chance at the photo op:) We hope to see you soon!

 

Something in a bag

Project in a bag

 

It’s the season. The season for pulling bags like this out of my yarn closet. How about you?

 

Now comes the fun part…where was I again?

Hummmm…at least it’s still on the needles (even though I seem to have stopped mid row), and at least I have the pattern and even a few unwound skeins of yarn! Glory be!

It even looks like I attempted to mark something with a blue pencil? That could help decipher it? I’ve held off the sleeves at least!

It’s all coming back to me now, Dark and Stormy by Thea Colman. Knitting it out of Quince Chickadee in Sabine.

 

Who knows…if the weather cooperates maybe I’ll finish in time for the Great American Wool Festival!  Like to follow stuff on Facebook? Follow the Great American Wool Festival Facebook Event page for updates!

12 in 12 – 2014 Party!

Monday, November 24th, 2014

 
12in12Large
 
It’s another year…wow! Our 12 in 12’s from 2014 are almost complete.
 
We are busy planning our 12 in 12 party for the year.

 

The party is going to be Friday night, December 26th, 2014. Yes, we know that is the day after Christmas!
 
So, if you’ve ever knit a 12 in 12, if you’ve thought about knitting a 12 in 12, if your friend knit a 12 in 12, if you have a 12 in 12 that you’ve been meaning to finish, or if you just like our shop and like a party, you are welcome to come! If you’ve tried to knit a 12 in 12 from this year it’s extra fun because you’ll be entered into some drawings for store cash! Wahoo!
 
We’ll have some snacks and a beverage and chat about our sweaters from this year and then we’ll chat a bit about what we are doing next year.
 
We fell off the tracks with the 12 in 12 program this year.  We promise 2015 will be better!
 
A quick note…we are going to offer 12 in 12 sweater knitting every Tuesday evening from 6-8pm.  Whatever sweater you are working on, we can help you with!  No cost, just come!
 
See you on Friday, December 26th
