Happy Thanksgiving!

We are Closed on Thursday, November 23 and Friday November 24 to allow our staff to celebrate with their families and relax before Small Business Saturday! 

Small Business Saturday is November 25. We are open 10-5. We have a fabulous gift for everyone visiting us that day, until they are gone. Plus, everyone that makes a purchase will get 10 Yarn Bucks to use between November 26 and December 23! 

Plymouth Yarns is favoring us with a wonderful promotion for Small Business Saturday. Spend $50 on Plymouth Yarns and get a certificate for $20 off your next $50 purchase of Plymouth Yarn in December! We have a great selection, too!


Project of the Week

Quick and easy, can be done amidst the bustle of family coming and going, relaxing after long hours in the kitchen.

Gift Card Cozy!

As we are gearing up to shop til we drop, sometimes it is just perfect (for the teens, especially, it seems) to give a gift card. These little cozies make what can be impersonal, a little more personal and special.

Crocheters get the gold star for cozy novelty, but there are some nice knit ones, too. Check out our Ravelry Bundle for my faves.
