Goodbye August, Hello Fall!
Fall Yarns That Is...

We've received some of our fall yarn orders already, and since this is still Texas, it's in plenty of time to get warm things made before the cool weather arrives!

New arrivals include Fibra Natura's Cobblestone, Berroco's Dulce, Euro Yarns' Tenderfoot, and Jody Long's Alba. We've also received new fall colors of the very popular Berroco Sesame and Malabrigo Sock.

We've also gotten a bunch of new knit/crochet notions and needle arts threads and tools. To see the awesome list of new stuff, check out our home page!

And, yes! We still have crazy-good deals on bagged clearance yarns! There are still a lot of great choices left, just in case you haven't had a chance to drop by.
Also, out of concern for everyone's health, we need y'all to mask up while in the shop. Many in the fiber community are immune compromised and we need your help. Hopefully, this surge ends soon!

Be safe, be well, be kind!

The Tip Jar

Save Your Swatches!!
Have you ever bought clothing and it came with a little baggie with an extra button and maybe a bit of yarn (if it's a sweater)? This is so that if you get a hole or lose a button, you can replace or wear it.

Your swatch (for knitting or crochet) or sample (for weaving) can be used the same way! Keep your swatches in a place that you will remember and if you ever have anything happen to your precious handmade items, you'll have a ready bit of yarn that you can use to fix it!

And don't forget to include the swatch if you gift your finished item.

All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
