Early July, 2009

Hello, Knitters, Crocheters and Needlepointers!

** UPDATE: There is still room left in the Magic Loop Sock Class! Sign up now to reserve your spot before the class fills up!!!!!!!**

Remember to bring your Go Green Bag with you each time you shop, Eva will be holding Surprise Sale Days for those customers who own one. You must walk into the store with your bag; bags purchased on Surprise Sale Days do not qualify for the discount. Discounts apply to regularly priced merchandise only. Bags are available for only $2.99.

Needlepointers: Those beautiful Cooper Oaks canvasses are 25% off until the end of July. I love them, you know you love them, and this is a great sale. There are so many summer-themed canvasses to work on while you are on vacation!

Keep in mind, needlepointers who love Lee leather products, that they are now a limited supply. Lee is closing, so although we have ordered all we can, there will be no more. We will keep you updated with any status changes, but for now we hear that they will discontinue production.

Also for our needlepointers: Fiber Sale! Buy five, get one free. This applies only to fibers of the same type. For example, if you buy five Silk and Ivory, the free skein will also be a Silk and Ivory. Bring in your canvasses (or purchase a new one), and save on fibers with this great offer. All skeins must be purchased at the same time to qualify. Offer good until the end of July.

BIG STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thursday night, October 15th, will be a HUGE and EXCITING event at A Stitch In Time. What will it be? Well, I am not telling. Ha ha! But keep your calendar clear and your eyes open. I cannot be bribed to let the cat out of the bag, even with yarn and coffee. But I will be coming… you should too. This is REALLY BIG.

Our Raffle is ongoing for July. For every $50 you spend, you will be entered in a drawing for a gift card to A Stitch In Time. Drawing to be held August 1. Good Luck!

Even though the help desk is on hiatus for the rest of the summer, please come in and join your fellow knitters for a nice social knitting time. Social knitting is held on Fridays, 11-4. On Saturdays, we will also have open social knitting 1-4. A suggested project will be left on the table for our Saturday knitters; there is nothing as much fun as working on the same project with others. A great opportunity to knit together with a supportive community, so nice to have others working on the same thing in case of questions. Of course, you can feel free to choose your own project during this time as well. This is YOUR table, so gather around and have some fun!

On my needles:

Sock Wars Update: I received Death Socks (in a lovely hand-dyed German wool) in Wednesday’s mail, along with my SIP’s which were sent onto the next knitter for completion. So, although I am out of the competition, it was a great way to go. Picture for anyone interested are posted in the Sock Wars group on Ravelry under “Obituaries.”

“China Doll” has been put aside (once again, Sorry Allie) so I can make a prayer shawl for a dear friend… but Allie understands!! Both the shawl and China Doll are nearing completion. To take a peek, go to mittengirl on Ravelry and click on my projects. Heather’s Boku Afghan is also nearly completed (having been put aside for China Doll.. do you see an ongoing Knitting-ADD theme here), which must be ready to leave for college when she does. Oops!

Even though my on-the-floor hours are coming to an end, I will still be around, so say hi when you’re in the store!

Big Yarn Hugs,
