Lots and Lots and Lots of Classes and Something else a little different - read on!

Today's newsletter has a slightly different assortment of news: We have over 20 classes on the schedule over the next two months, knitting and crocheting classes and some other fun classes, and more coming, for later in October and November.

There's also a reminder to everyone about our participation in the Wounded Warriors Shawl Knitting project. And another reminder about the shop being up for sale.

And something truly different: Read the newsletter to learn more about these talented teenagers appearing on America's Got Talent on Tuesday, August 19th - and I am hustling votes for them:

Check out their YouTube channel: 

and then go online tonight and vote for them.

The Wounded Warrior Shawl Project is Back!
It's time to get started knitting and crocheting shawls, wraps and stoles for the local Semper Fi group. Like last year, they will give our contributions to female wounded warriors and to spouses and caregivers of male wounded vets to wear to the Semper Fi formal event in November. 

Come into the shop and sign out some of the yarn donated by some of our suppliers and get started or use something you already have at home, or buy something from us (and get a partial yarn credit if you bring your receipt in when you turn in the shawl). You may use any pattern you choose - one you already own, or something from Ravelry or other online sources.

Please save the ballbands from the yarn so that washing instructions can be passed on to the recipients. 
And Another Something Different!

Shop Sale
We have had some general inquiries, but no one has made a comittment yet, so if you are considering a career change, want to be your own boss, want to make your beloved hobby more than just a hobby, or just don't want to see Huntsville without a real local yarn shop, send me an email, or call me to talk about the possibilities. Shop staff can give you my direct office phone number.
