Project Knitalong...
On Wednesday afternoons
from 1-3 pm we have a
"Project of the Month"
knitalong.  For April we're
goint to make the
Impasto Shawlette...a lovely shawlette using a slip stitch pattern and short rows.  We will be using Elsebeth Lavold Bamboucle yarn which somes in some lovely spring/summer colors.  You'll need 2 skeins of the main color and 1 skein of 4 other colors.  Since the Bamboucle yarn is a little heavier than the pattern yarn, we'll adjust the stitch count and short rows.  But  don't worry, we'll show you how to make the adjustments.  Come join the fun each Wednesday afternoon as we learn, share, and be creative together!

Spring Has Sprung Weekend...
On April 11 & 12 we're going to
have a Spring Has Sprung
Weekend.  On Friday, we'll have a
Yarn Tasting of our new spring
yarns and a spring reveal on our new project wall.  We'll also have a petting zoo of alpacas, and a sale of alpaca poop for your gardens.  Sign up now for how many bags of alpaca poop you would like to purchase so that enough bags are brought to the shop.  Bags are approximately 40 lbs and will be $6.00 each.  Check out this link for some information on the benefits of alpaca poop for your garden.  We'll also have farm fresh chicken and duck eggs for sale at $3.00/dozen.  On Saturday we'll have yarn  projects for the kids to make and spinning & weaving demonstrations.  It will be a fabulous weekend for the whole family.  Save the dates and come have fun!

Market Days...
On May 5 - 10 we will
once again have our Market
Days.  Market Days give you
the opportunity to sell
yarns in your stash that you
no longer want, as well as any items for knitting, crocheting, spinning or weaving.  You will receive shop credit for anything that sells.  Cost is only $5...no matter how many items you bring in.  Print out a sheet of market day tags to fill out.  Be sure to put your initials and an item number on each tag.  Then put each item in a Ziploc bag along with the tag.  Bring in the items you wish to sell the week before the Market (April 28 - May 3).  On Monday, May 12 you can come by and pick up any remaining items that didn't sell as well as your store credit certificate.  Items bought during our Market Days need to be paid with cash or a check.  There are always some great guys during our Market days, so be sure to come take a look and find that special treasure.

East TN Yarn Crawl...
The yarn shops in East TN
had so much fun last year
with providing a Yarn
Crawl for you that we're
going to make it an annual
event.  Dates for this year's crawl are May 31 - June 22.  We extended it to 3 weeks including 4 weekends in order to give eveyone plenty of time to visit as many shops as possible.  2014 Commemorative Tote Bags and Passports are $10 and can be bought outline at our ETYC website.  Tote bags and passports will be available for pick-up the week before the yarn crawl begins.  There are a limited number of tote bags, so be sure to get yours before we run out.  Plan to visit as many of the 12 yarn shops in East TN as you can.  Have your passport stamped at each shop you visit.  Each shop will have a free knitting or crocheting pattern to give you.  And you'll have the chance to register for 3 door prizes at each shop.  if you make it to all 12 shops, then you'll win a "thank you" prize as well as have the chance to win the Grand Prize.  Turn in your passport at the last shop you visit by Sunday, June 22.  Come join us and have the chance to win one of 36 different prizes or maybe even the Grand Prize.  Check out all the details on our Ravelry Group page..."East TN Yarn Crawl".

Girls' Night Out Workshop...
On Friday, May 30 from
6-8 pm we'll be having
a workshop on how to
make Lavender Wands.
Come learn this simple
weaving technique that
will make you want to plant some lavender in your yarn for next year's crop.  Lavender wands are great to place in your yarn stash as the lavender repels moths and leaves a wonderful aroma.  They also make great gifts to give away.  Come join the fun.  Cost will be $30 which includes all supplies and refreshments.

Need knitting/crocheting help on your project...
We are always more than happy to help customers with project problems and issues during regular store hours, but our shop girls stay pretty busy helping customers with their selection of patterns, yarns, etc.  So we now have an available knitting and crocheting help teacher.  Just bring in your project and our "Stitch Doctor" will help get you back on track.  Cost is $15/hr, but fee will be prorated based on the amount of time needed.  For involved requests such as garment construction or learning complicated stitches, you may need to have a paid private lesson or attend one of our Weekly Classes.

Blocking and Felting...
Many times we have heard folks say that they can't felt their project because they have a front-loading washer.  Or they know their garment should be blocked, but they are scared to do it.  Blocking will smooth out any wrinkles, stretch the garment out to the correct size, relaz the stitches so they are all more uniform and make the garment look and fit better.  We can provide these services for you.  Just bring in your projects to us for felting or blocking.  Cost is $10 per item.

We love to socialize...
It's always great to get together with other crafters while you work on a project.  Come bring your spinning wheel, your knitting needles or your crochet hook and your current project to our shop during our social times for an afternoon or evening of pure fiber enjoyment.
