Now to tell you about the fun stuff going on around the shop this month!
Where's Waldo - Throughout the entire month of July we are participating in a big Where's Waldo Event with other local businesses in the Greater Utica area. This is a local shopping initiative organized by my friends over at The Treehouse Reading and Arts Center. Your job is to visit these local businesses and find where Waldo is hiding in each of these places. First you need to pick up a passport either at Love & Stitches, The Treehouse Reading and Arts Center, or any other participating business. As you find Waldo hanging out at these local businesses you will get your passport stamped/signed. If you find all 21 Waldo's you are entered into the Grand Prize drawing! More details in the passport. Please limit one passport per family.
Christmas in July - From July 23rd to July 27th we will be having our annual Christmas in July Sale! That means all our bulky yarn is 20% off. This is the time to stock up on those bigger yarns to make those chunky knits for fall and winter.
Yarn of the Month - I've heard it before, it is too hot to knit in the summer. So for this month we are putting sock yarn on sale. It is never too warm to make socks! Plus they are a perfect project to take along with you on all your summer adventures.... including the adventures on your couch in front of the air conditioner. This sale includes ALL the sock yarn. Yes that means that pretty hand-dyed yarn that you've been making eyes at for months. Now is the time to treat yourself to something beautiful.
Drop In Classes - I've decided to try something new with our classes. We are adding in drop in knitting and crocheting classes every week. So this summer if there is a stitch or technique that you are curious to learn or need extra assistance on a particular pattern, this is the class for you. You can also sign up for these classes if you are just beginning to learn to knit or crochet.
Weekly Knit Nights - Back in April we started a weekly knit night. Now that it is summer we are adjusting our times based on the facebook poll that you guys answered. Starting July 18th our weekly knit night will be on Thursdays. Bring your current knit or crochet project. As always we have coffee, tea, and water available.
Stay tuned for more classes being added in July and August and a crochetalong in September.
