Stash Buster Sale!
July 30, 2019 through August 3, 2019
Announcing the first annual STASH BUSTER SALE! Once a year, it is a good idea to take a fresh look at your collection of yarn, the beautiful skeins that tug on your heart strings, the projects that you started but set aside to start something else and whatever you have inherited from well meaning friends and relatives. Stash is not a four letter word!!! Your stash should be treated as a finely curated collection. People collect all sorts of things (wine they will never drink, antique hangers, bottle capsâ€¦) so go ahead, collect yarn. I would even suggest you take a couple of your favorite skeins and put them in a bowl on your dining room table, to make you smile when you walk through the room. This is a great opportunity for folks who wouldn't normally shop at smaller yarn stores to pick up and try some new yarns! What you no longer wish to hold on to may be a newly minted jewel for someone else!
