Subject: October Sale Time!!

First Weekend Sale
It's First Weekend Sale time (Oct 5th & 6th)!! We're having our "Ready, Set, Go!!" sale in honor of the fact that there are only two and half months until Christmas, folks!!!  All yarns with animal fibers will be 20% off!  This will include yarns with any wool, alpaca, or silk content.  Additionally, any clearance items (and there are some new clearance yarns!) already on sale will be an additional 5% off, and our cotton fabrics that are not batiks will be 50% off (50% total, not additional)!  Don't forget that the First Weekend Sale falls on downtown Opelika's First Friday, so we'll be here until 8 pm on Friday, Oct. 5. We'd love to see you.


The calendar has been updated on the website for October.  Just click here to see it in calendar form, or here to see it as a list. 

Upcoming classes include Learn to Knit, and Wet Felting!  Remember to call if there's a class you'd like to take that we haven't scheduled this month -  we will schedule it with you! 334-745-7300

FYI, we've had a few requests for layaway for big items, and: Yes!!  We can definitely do layaway!  If you are interested in layaway for a loom or a spinning wheel, talk to us about this!

Used looms and spinning wheels

We sometimes sell used looms and spinning wheels on consignment!  In fact, we have a used spinning wheel here now!  It is an Ashford Traditional.  It actually has the bulky flyer on it, and there is a bunch of fiber that's being offered with it, too!  


The picture above is from our fabulous new window by Lacey Pitts, with assistance from Dave Beasley!  I know many of you have seen the amazing windows they've put together in the past.  I finally figured out how to photograph them without glare (yay!!), so keep an eye out for them here!  This is only one of three, so check out the others when you come by this weekend!

New Stock Teasers

I WISH these were here already, but we are getting in some new items from Namaste next week!  This is exciting, y'all.  So keep your eyes peeled!  Also next week a needle order is coming (heads up: we're low on needles right now!)

New books we've gotten in recently include: Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, Top-Down Sweaters, and Knitted Socks East and West.  There are plenty more, too!  We also recently received the latest Knitting Traditions magazine.  It's beautiful!

Ongoing Events

I just want to remind you of our ongoing events.  We have crafting groups on Tuesday evenings, from 5-7 pm, and on Friday mornings, from 10-12.  Regardless of what you're working on, feel free to bring it and come hang out with us!  We have a great time.  Also, Book Group is 2nd Friday (this month we're talking about Shadow of Night/Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness), and Spin-In is 4th Saturday!  Next month's book selection is The Flight of Gemma Hardy.  [They do have this at the Auburn City Library, I know, though it's currently checked out... to me.  I'll return it soon!]
