This week's class availability
Please Note: The Beaded Row Counter bracelet workshop has been moved to Saturday October 6th.
Tri-Loom Weaving: THIS Sunday September 16th, from 4 to 7 pm. We have a few slots still open. Registration Fee: $35.00, plus $10. loom use fee to instructor if you do not own a tri-loom. 3ft Tri-looms may be purchased from the instructor. If you've always been fascinated by weaving but TriLoom overwhelmed by looms with heddles and peddles and shuttles and all that weaving stuff, this is for you. In 3 hours, you can complete a small shawlette - how's that for instant gratification? Click here for more details. These make great gifts just as they are, or you can combine them to make larger shawls or afghans. And you can always move up to a larger loom for larger projects.
Cascade Yarn Tasting in just two weeks:
September 29th & 30th
We have a fantastic Yarn Tasting featuring the entire line of Cascade yarns scheduled on September 29th and 30th. We've still got open spaces in both of them, so come in and sign up, or call the shop and send us a check.
Mike, our Cascade rep,will be here and set up a shop full of yarn tasting stations and is bringing doorprizes (lots of them) as well.
We have trunk show models coming in and the books with the patterns are in already. Mike will be here with all of his color cards, so that you can order anything you'd like from their line, even if we don't normally carry it.

The $10 registration fee will go to Animal Rescue.

Diane and I are working on gift bags for everyone with 2 Cascade yarns - a classic and a brand new one and free patterns to put them together!

Additional Upcoming Classes:
Spiderweb Pocket Flyer Class for Crocheters: Diane offered her SpiderWebFlyerquadwing version of this class back in the spring - this one is for you Halloween buffs. We don't have a flyer yet, but we do have a picture, a date and a time: Wednesday October 10th, from 5 to 8pm. I think I'm going to have to make one in pumpkin orange...... If you get off from work at 5pm and want to take the class, please let us know and Diane will coordinate with you to make sure you don't miss anything.
Mittens and Gloves: Diane is going to offer a mittens and gloves class on MWF October 22 / 24 / 26 from 530 to 730. Most of the participants in her recent sock anatomy class have signed up for it already (they got to pick the dates) so there are only a few slots left and we don't have pictures for the flyer yet but Diane has finished making the samples. The registration fee is $65.00; if we get enough demand, Diane may open up another session of it. The class will do both mittens and gloves, with the selected project depending on the skill level of the registrant. If you just want to do mittens, you can, if you want to try fingers, that option will be available to you as well.
We now Tweet: @YarnExpressions
We have added Twitter as another way of keeping you updated on what's going on in the shop. If you're interested, click on the Follow us logo to Follow us on Twitter!
The plan is to let you know when we receive merchandise that you might want to know about. And maybe an occasional last minute sale or special offer or?!?
For example, this week we received 150 skeins of Marble Chunky - all the great fall colors and enough to make almost any project you have in mind. And 80 skeins of Cascade EcoDuo, including the much loved colorway Zebra! And some more DellaQ needle cases and Edict Bags.
While our tweets won't be this long, this is the kind of information we'll be sharing. We are hoping to be able to stream the tweets to the website as well, for those of you who don't tweet!
Madeline Tosh Special Order Window is Open
There's just under 2 more weeks left to special order Madeline Tosh yarns from us for this year. Our next order will probably not be until late spring, so if you want something specific, please order it now. We are on the schedule tMadToshlogoo be dyed and shipped sometime in October. So, if any of you would like to get something specific for a project you have in mind, this is your last chance for this year from us.
