And there are still some slots available, both on Saturday and on Sunday, although there are a few more on Sunday!
Click here for your flyer on theNeedle and Yarn Tasting; then come into the shop and sign up. Our goodie bags are going to contain twists of 6 different yarns, some we carry and some we don't, so that you can try out new things.
August 17th or August 18th - both dates are currently available, and your $10 registration fee goes to animal rescue. And did we mention that there will be lots and possibly lots and lots of doorprizes to take home?
If you're not familiar with FrogTree yarns, their yarns are ridiculously reasonably priced wonderfully soft Fair Trade yarns from Peru and Bolivia. FrogTree, the company, is actually T&C Imports, a non-profit, so all the profits from the wholesale sales of their yarns goes to the artisans who create them and to support education and environmental projects in their communities. So, great yarns and great causes all wrapped up together. To read more about them, click on this link: http://www.frogtreeyarns.com/.
We only carry a few of the yarns that Muench yarns offers, so Kirsten Muench is sending us a whole bunch of stuff for you to try out. You can help me to decide whether to expand our offerings of their yarns based on what you like at the tasting. I think the list she sent had over 30 yarns on it.
And we've gotten about 2 dozen Knitter's Pride Needles in for the tasting, and the loaner set of the new Nova Cubics is in the box along with the tasting samples (which will only be available to play with at the tastings - while we have them on order, they haven't shipped yet from the manufacturer, so this is a super sneak peak of these).
Registration will close on Sunday, August 11th so we can get the twists and pattern sets ready in time for the event.
