Black Friday Weekend Sales!!!

StoreArtYarn Expressions

We have got some fantastic deals for you this weekend - and a one of kind, never-to- be-repeated mini yarn event!!

And if you are tired of shopping, bring your knitting, crocheting, spinning, or whatever craft suits your fancy and come and hang out in the shop to get away from the stampedes at the big box stores!! It may get a little crazy with all the sales, but will always be fun!

We are open our regular hours all weekend!

In this newsletter...
Stash Sale AND 40% OFF patterns, totes, beads & kits!
Schaefer Yarn Company 2 Hour Special Event on Saturday!
December Classes
November & December Classes
Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday!
40% OFF ALL Individual Patterns in the Shop!
And we have THOUSANDS of patterns. We organized them this week, and we have 25 binders FULL of patterns, in addition to what's on display. They are sorted by detailed categories, so you can browse through a book of exactly what you're looking for. Need to make something for a new baby? We have binders full of baby patterns; or a sweater for a gift? We have books of women's sweaters, and cardigans, and vests, and men's patterns and children's patterns and pet patterns and several binders full of shawl patterns and scarf patterns and hat and mitten patterns..... The list is quite endless.

And we've brought back STASH SALE!!
If you've never shopped at our Stash Sale, you should really check it out. Even if you've shopped Stash Sale before, it's worth a new look. We've added some new yarns, including some Alpaca, and we've thrown in a pile of older shop models at drastically discounted prices. Some of them may need a little finishing, or primping, but they are super great buys priced to move. The original yarns cost more than the prices we're charging for the finished (or semi-finished) garments.

Stash Sale is our semi-annual Fundraiser for Animal Rescue. Since last spring, we have raised almost $3500.00 for animal rescue organizations in North Alabama. This season's Stash Sale has yarns ranging from $1. per skein up to about $9 or $10.
40% OFF ALL Beads, Kits & Totes!
If you've been lusting after one of our remaining Hanne Falkenberg Kits or one of the gorgeous hand-dyed shawl kits from HPKY or one of our single or double skein project kits, this is your chance to go crazy. They will not be discounted like this again anytime in the near future.
And since our beaded projects instructor is out of the country for a few months, we're going to sneak behind her back and offer you a great deal on beads - this includes all our seed beads and our larger beads.
Who doesn't need a new Tote Bag? And these make great gifts for your fellow crafting friends - stuff one with a gift certificate, or some yarn and needles and you have the perfect gift for your knitting or crocheting friends. We have Totes from Knit Happy/Crochet Happy, and Walker Bags and BagSmith and Buttermilk Cottage and ???
Schaefer Yarn Company is closing...
and Susan, our Schaefer Yarn Company rep is bringing us ALL the remaining yarn she has in stock, including yarns we don't normally carry - for TWO HOURS on SATURDAY afternoon, from 2pm until we close at 4pm!!
Yes, this Saturday, you will be able to shop from all the yarns that she can get for us - this is a ONE TIME ONLY event. Once Susan packs up to leave, those yarns are gone and not coming back!
So, in addition to Anne, Audrey, Heather, and Nichole, we are supposed to have Chris, Miss Priss,Susan, Laurel, Meryl and even some Andrea! We may even get to see some special limited edition colorways. The wonderful dyer at Schaefer Yarn Company has been known to experiment, and then send those experimental colorways out to the reps to sell directly to shops, instead of adding them to their regular product line.
And as with all our special events, we will be discounting all Schaefer Yarn Company yarns during the event. In celebration of Small Business Saturday, all of our Schaefer Yarn Company yarns, both from regular stock, and the stock brought in by Susan, will be 20% OFF!!

On MosaicMobiusSaturday, December 1st, she is going to teach her Marble Mosaic Mobius/Cowl.
