Stay Safe and Healthy
Wash your hands like you just finished
a bowl of chocolate ice cream and
you’re about to knit with $200 yarn.
Stay safe and healthy, knit friends.
Please be sure and join us on NOVEMBER 14th for the trunk show for Wabash Woollen Works. (Someone might have said October, but she was really thinking it was time I baked her a Coconut Cake for her birthday on October, 14th). Sorry for the inconvenience, but please do join us. We are currently working on a streaming solution and we are hoping that if you can’t join us live in the store, you’ll be able to attend online. Fingers crossed for Tech Dru.
MAKS 2020 Fall Retreat
If you didn’t get an email contact the store or purchase on the website. The 2020 Fall Virtual Retreat starts this Friday.
Here’s how the retreat will work. We are putting together exclusive projects, one per week for the retreat. Along with the project, you’ll receive a 20% off coupon for the featured yarn to complete the project. And the final week, you’ll receive a 20% coupon off for any additional purchases (some exclusions apply). All purchases can be shipped or picked up at the store, at your convenience.
Along with our weekly projects, we will be having a weekly Zoom & Knit meeting. We started these during the Spring Retreat and enjoyed them so much we wanted to make sure to include them for the Fall Retreat as well. Along with the weekly Zoom and Knit meeting, we are working to schedule additional zoom meetings with some special guests. No Spoilers! Wanna Join Us?
