March Madness!

Don't bother with those silly basketball brackets, all the fun this March is to be had in Ormond Beach on 600 S. Yonge St at a certain yarn shop!  We blast into March with a yarn crawl encompassing six yarn shops across all of Central Florida.  We're talking special yarn, special trunk shows, special classes (Carolyn is coming back to dye with us - what better way to dye! and Jennifer is coming back to teach spinning - great lady, great teacher!), special DEALS, special drawings!  Kat is going to be stuck in Georgia so you all have to go and take lots of pictures for her!
The rest of March is packed with fun classes and even TWO knit-a-longs as well as a crochet-a-long to choose from.  Cast-on with us (in-person or across the internet) and enjoy support, guidance and help through the whole project!

 
Events!
 
SheepWalk! Thursday, February 28 at our Drop-In Fiber Social

Strut your finished projects on the woolly catwalk, or Sheepwalk on the last Thursday of each month!  We want to hear about all of your experiences, successes and challenges with different patterns and fibers! And we want to applaud your beautiful work as you take a short stroll on our SheepWalk.
All participants on the Sheepwalk will be entered in a drawing for a She Sells Yarn Gift Certificate!  If that's not encouragement to shake your tail feathers and flash some fleece, then I don't know what is!

Check out Henrietta's beautiful smile below after she won the drawing for a gift certificate just by participating!
    
 
 

 
Six (6!!  S-I-X!!) shops across Central Florida open their doors for the entire 9 days, offer exciting deals, give-aways, drawings, classes, exclusive yarn, jaw-dropping trunk shows. 
Print out your passport (<--click there) or pick up a copy in the shop.  Visit each of the six participating shops to get all your stamps.  A completed passport makes you eligible for the Yarn Crawl Grand Prize...over $600 worth of gift certificates and goodies!  Each shop will also have special events and drawings throughout the nine days as well as skeins of the Orange Blossom Yarn Crawl colorway from Emma's Yarn (hurry, limited quantities and they will go fast)!!
