May 2018 Newsletter
May 2018 Newsletter
I set myself a goal last month to generate a monthly Newsletter with events, classes and of course, News about the shop.
Did that happen on the 1st May - nope.
So better late than never and worth the wait - promise.
Yarn of the MONTH - For the Month of May our featured yarn is All Shibui - 20% off
We have decided to feature a yarn or group of yarns each month which will be on sale for the duration of the month. We will have free patterns, samples and lots of ideas for what you can make with you new purchase. This month we chose all Shibui yarns because so many of the patterns call for different Shibui yarns - held together. Now you have no excuse not to make a fabulous scarf or summer top or sweater in this gorgeous yarn.
