Celebrate “Knit in Public Day” right outside of your favorite LYS. Bring your knitting project or let us help you find a new one (we have lots of great ones to show you), plus a chair and a snack to share if you wish. You can join other knitters relaxing and socializing at our beautiful location. We’d love to know if you are planning to come, just call us or send a quick email.

 

for-sale-1582326ABYC’s 17th ANNIVERSARY SALE

Monday, August 7 thru Sunday, August 13

Can you believe it’s been 17 years since our little shop “by the dock on the bay” opened?
We can’t…so this year we are going to take a whole week to celebrate!
That’s right, we are going to have lots of yarn, books, accessories and more on sale at up to 50% off during regular store hours for seven whole days. We’ll have our usual front-door parking spaces, plus look for the orange parking cones that say “YARN.”

WAVE or RUFFLED WRAP …YOUR CHOICE

Sunday, July 9 • Noon - 4 p.m.

Come join us for a special afternoon with Barry Klein and play with his wonderful Trendsetter yarns. You’ll have two new wrap designs to choose from… one uses his new self-striping yarn with boucle loops to create little wedges surrounded with garter stitch rows. The other combines two colors of a bright cotton ribbon with a contrasting solid yarn. The choice is yours!
When Barry is here it’s always fun, plus you can expect a sneak-preview of some of Trendsetter’s newest yarns and designs for this coming fall/winter.
A $20 fee reserves your spot and will be applied to your materials purchase.
Be sure to call and sign up soon!
