2019-01 January Newsletter

Hold onto your needles and hooks, the Yarn Train is just getting started!
Well, gosh, how silly am I that I thought we'd be settling in the winter months with some chill time and humdrum projects?!
We've got new classes, new techniques and completely new crafts and hobbies for you to indulge in.  There is NO CHILL when we're this excited about new friends, new teachers, new projects, new yarns, new knit-alongs and crochet-alongs......and I'm out of breath!
This month, you can join a project to work together with other knitters or crocheters and get free help from the shop, you can drop your needles and hooks and pick up a drop-spindle to learn how to spin, try some tatting, add some twist to your knitting with a cable class and much MUCH more!
The only thing that gets me more excited than the wonderfulness we have to offer this month is the unconditional and unending wonderfulness that has been offered to US!!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who has come to visit, encouraged and cheered us on, supported us in many ways, held our hands as we jumped in 5 new directions at one time and were just there for us when we needed you.  Your excitement and enthusiasm has helped us hurdle many steep learning curves! We are looking forward to exploring and enjoying many more months with our new friends - whether it be with a skein of yarn or a cup of tea.   
Wishing you all love, happiness, and knot-free skeins of yarn,
Now, 2019........LET'S DO THIS!!
