Maine Yarn Cruise — Final Boarding Call!

Final Weekend for MYC!

We’ve had a blast participating in the Maine Yarn Cruise this Summer! Thank you to everyone who made the trip to see us. It was a pleasure to meet you all and talk yarn. It gives us the warm fuzzies to see the Maine fiber community come together. A special thanks goes out to Mother of Purl and the fellow yarn shops who participated and who’s camaraderie made the Yarn Cruise as enjoyable so enjoyable!

The exciting news is that we’ve extended our monthly prize drawing through the holiday weekend! The less exciting news is that this is the last monthly drawing of the Yarn Cruise. It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over. If you haven’t had a chance to drop-in and fill out a ticket for the monthly or grand prize then I suggest you get down here this Saturday and Sunday. We will be closed Monday, but I think they’re predicting rain on Sunday… so that might be the perfect time to stop in and check out our new displays and enter for your chance to win!

August Drawing!

This month we are drawing for your chance to win the ever-so-lovely Cowl in a Cup!  So sit back, relax, and knit this luxurious accessory. Includes: One skein Jade Sapphire Cashmere 2-ply Yarn, one knitters mug, Pressure Drop Infinity Scarf Pattern a 3oz Soak Wash, a $10.00 Halcyon Yarn Gift Card, and a muslin project bag. But wait!
