I know you’ve been waiting for it, so here you are – July’s Cascade Sale! Yes – that’s right, ALL Cascade yarns are 40% off. This sale price is our way of cleaning the shelves and getting ready for Fall. Of course it only applies to in-stock yarns and no special orders please, or prior sales. As you also know, the best stock exists NOW, so make some plans to come visit and get your hands on a great, reliable staple yarn: CASCADE!
Next week we kick off “real” Summer, with our Kid Summer Camps. Week 1 features sewing and quilting, week 2 features a fiber focus including knitting, weaving and more, and week 3 we are all about it all! Please call to register your 8-12 year-old for a week, or three, of fun! Camps are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am – 12:30pm and the cost is $150 per three day session.
If these dates and times don’t work for you, I’m happy to work out a “private” session. All you need is four kids and we can work out the rest.

Planning Ahead? Other Upcoming Workshops:
Binding Off & Casting On
Come join us for a lesson designed to expand your skills in beginning and finishing your projects. We’ll learn news ways to both cast on and bind off our projects including the long tail and the knitted cast on, then move on to the provisional cast on – often used in shawls and to make garments with a hem, as well as a folded picot edge, and a knitted picot edge cast on.
After that, we’ll move to binding off, where we’ll learn how to work a three needle bind off, a sewn bind off, Jenny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off and then finish off with a picot edge.
