Can you believe we are celebrating our 2nd year at Love & Stitches? And it's all thanks to you! Two years ago we were in our small space around the back of the building. Let's be honest, it was the real estate definition of cozy. But we made it work. We filled it with yarn and held classes as often as we could. Now we are in a bigger space, looking out on to Oriskany Boulevard. Our goal is to continue growing in order to give you more classes, yarn, and as many opportunities to yarn as possible. This month we have classes, sales, new yarn, and new product just in time for our anniversary and the holiday season.
Yarn of the Month
For November we are showing off Plymouth's Hot Cakes.
Hot Cakes is actually Encore is disguise! It's the blend of acrylic and wool that we love, now in a self striping cake. Some of our crocheters have used it with our Study of Texture CAL throughout September and October. With 404 yards it made it very easy to make an afghan and not worry about all those pesky ends! However, that also means that its a perfect one skein wonder for holiday presents. And those holidays are right around the corner! So to help you out, Hot Cakes is 20% off all month long AND you will get a free pattern when you buy a skein of Hot Cakes. Check out the colors in the slideshow below.
All month long you will have the chance to win either a Knitter's Pride Knitting Needle Binder or a Furls Leather Crochet Hook Case, along with other yarnie notions. For every $10 spent in store during the month of November, you will earn a ticket for the raffle. We will pick the winner at the end of the day on Saturday, November 30th.
Black Friday & Small Business Saturday
November 29th and 30th we will have special hours for the kick off to the holiday shopping season. Both Friday and Saturday we will be open from 10am to 4pm. We will also have a special sale going on both days. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer.
Weekly Knit Night
Thursday Night Knit Nights seem to be a big hit. This is not a class, just a night to focus on our yarn. Both knitters and crocheters are welcome. On the 21st we are hosting another Game Night. We will be playing The Last Knitter Standing. Crocheters can play too! Please RSVP on the Facebook event since space is limited.
