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 overwhelmed by looms with heddles and peddles and shuttles

complete a small shawlette - how's that for instant

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.

Flyer Class for Crocheters: Diane offered her quadwing version of this class back in the spring - this

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

left to special order Madeline Tosh yarns from us for this year. Our next
