Here at Halcyon Yarn we’re counting down the days to our Ruby Anniversary Homecoming Party on Sunday July 17, from 11am-3:30pm. This Party is about : Celebration – Connection – Commitment!
- A Celebration of being in business 40 years
- A time to Connect with and get to know our customers in a fun, celebratory setting to thank them for being loyal and for being our customers
- An affirmation of our commitment to our customers to bring them the best in fiber arts
We’ve told you about some of the great things you can expect on this day. From 11:30-1:30pm we’ll be hosting a traditional Maine picnic, complete with fiddlers – The Nequosett Duo. Please remember it is FREE and open to all (but you do need a picnic ticket to have one of the limited number of lunches available, see our Homecoming Party page for details).
Outside, our parking lot will be filled with vendors hosting yarn “tastings”, offering great give-aways and giving demonstrations. You’ll also find a sheep to shawl demo. Inside you’ll find an array of “goodies” for our FREE prize drawings. Did I mention there are a lot!
Oh, and new yarns for fall are arriving as we speak. The first to arrive have been Cascade Duo, Cascade Superwash 220, Cascade Eco Plus in colors, Baby Alpaca Chunky Paints and Alpaca Lace. Who knows what else will have arrived by the 17th.
Are you intrigued by the FREE give-aways and prize drawings, but also a little curious as to what these items might be? Well, let me just say the staff at Halcyon Yarn is very jealous. What a selection! There are Noro books, pamphlets and yarns. I know many of you will be familiar with the books [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] and [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] and the Noro yarns, Silk Garden, Kureyon and Iro. Did I say ruby cashmere… Of course we’ll also be giving away one of Halcyon’s very own signature [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] , as well as some of our special edition “Ruby” products. That’s just a small sampling of what will be available. So come one, come all for the opportunity to acquire some highly coveted items in the world of fiber.
Okay, it all sounds great doesn’t it, but let’s get down to some specifics. How will the drawings work? Just for joining us for the festivities on Sunday the 17th you’ll receive one ticket that can be entered into a drawing for the product of your choice. Plus, for every $10 you spend with us that day you’ll get an additional ticket. Really want that Knit Noro book, then place all your tickets into the drawing for that item or choose to spread them around for a chance to win a variety of products. Prize winners will be announced every half hour. Such choices, such fun!
Worried about parking, you don’t need to! Since our event is being held on Sunday, all area parking lots will be open with plenty of free parking and we’ll be sure to have someone helping to direct traffic.
