Can you believe Love & Stitches has been open for a year already?
I sure can't!
It was a little tough to decide when to celebrate our anniversary. The store technically opened October 25th, but the Grand Opening was November 29th. Then the next question was do I really want to pick only ONE day to have a big party and a sale? Not really. I am so happy and proud of this store. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to join in on the festivities. So throughout the month of November we will be having special events, sales, and yarn to celebrate!
Black Friday - 11/23
We are going to be open from 10am - 4pm on Black Friday!
Patti and I will also start private lessons for both knitters and crocheters. We can help you with a project or pattern you need a little extra help with. We want you to be ready to tackle those holiday gifts now that it is crunch time. Cost per session is $10 an hour.
Some of the special sales for the day include 20% off all Plymouth yarn and a $5 tote with a minimum $25 purchase! And we will be debuting a NEW YARN!!! It's still a secret, but stay tuned for hints in the next few weeks.
Small Business Saturday - 11/24
Love & Stitches is now a member for the New Hartford Chamber of Commerce! Yay! This year the Chamber is organizing a great event to showcase local businesses in our area. In the middle of the November you can pick up a map at any of the participating businesses including Love & Stitches, The Treehouse Reading and Arts Center, Williams Variety Shop, Lady and Leap Toy Store, Gracious Home and Gifts, Lola n Lulu, the Kids Farm Market, the Medicine Shoppe, Colozzi's, Indigo Tree, Village Floral, One Genny, and MORE! Then on Small Business Saturday you will take your map to be stamped at the participating businesses. The more stamps you get, the more chances you have to win prizes! The day ends with a fun family-friendly trivia night at Cavallo's where the winners will be picked. You do not have to be present to win, but I think it will be a great way to end a day supporting the community.
All Month Long
We will have 2 giveaway bags full of all sorts of goodies from the store. One bag will be for knitters and the other for my crocheters. The gift bags include a $20 gift certificate, wool needles, gauge tool, stitch markers, and a hook/needle case. Throughout the month, you will earn a raffle ticket for every $10 spent. We will draw the winners on November 30th. If you are unable to pick up the prize within the following week, we will pick another winner.
Yarn of the Month - Cascade Cartwheel!
If you're not familiar with how Yarn of the Month works, here are the details. We feature one of the yarns in our shop with classes, patterns, and a special deal of 20% off all month long.
This month, Cascade's Cartwheel will be highlighted. Cartwheel is the chunky version of customer favorite, Pinwheel. You get the gorgeous self-striping 100% acrylic yarn that we all know, but in a chunkier weight! Stop by in store to see a 1 skein project that is perfect for holiday gifts. The 328 yards in this skein go a long way!
Later in November we will be debuting a new yarn that is near and dear to my heart. You might know what I'm talking about if you follow the store on Instagram. There may be a few hints about what it is from posts back in the summer. But that is all I am saying for now...
As always you can stay tuned by following the store on Facebook & Instagram for more updates on events, classes, and inventory.
