Summer Sale 2021

Just in case you missed it in the last email…

MAKS Summer Sale starts this Thursday, June 17th through Sunday, June 20th. We are offering 25% for in-store yarn purchases and 30% for online yarn purchases. This sale excludes Advent Calendars, MAKS Yarn, and Leading Men Fiber Arts Yarn. This is a great opportunity to restock and get started for the holidays (not too soon)!

Your discount code for the website is MAKSSUMMER21.

If you haven’t made it in to the store yet to see the Leading Men Fiber Arts Trunk show, you still have time…we’ll have them here until June 19th. (Trunk show purchases are not eligible for our summer sale discount, sorry!)

And an update:

Recently, the Indianapolis City Council has voted to lift the mask mandate for Marion County. They did so with the reservation that anyone fully vaccinated should not have to wear masks and it is perfectly safe for them to do so. With that ruling, interpretation has been left to local business owners for maintaining the safety of their staff and patrons. So, our current policy is as follows:

Those who are fully vaccinated are welcome to not wear masks in our shop. We reserve the right to request proof of full vaccination. Anyone who has chosen not to vaccinate or is only partially vaccinated at the time of their visits will be requested to maintain wearing a mask while visiting our shop.

This is a temporary policy and will be updated in the future. Please don’t be offended if we ask to see your vaccination card should you enter our store without a mask. We want to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our customers.

Stay Safe and Knit On!

So much fiber, so much news!

Hello Knitter Friends,

Lots to catch up on, so let’s get to it.

Today starts the Extended Trunk Show for Leading Men Fiber Arts at the shop and online. Please stop by the shop and see their amazing colorwork. The trunk show will run until June 19th. We have Spotlight, Mohair Silk, Dramaturg, Sparkle Sock, and Improv Sock Blanks. The guys did the yarn for the Spring Crawl and we just fell in love with their stuff and had to have them in for a trunk show. We think you’ll agree, they are SUPERSTARS! Online Trunk Show Here

Coming in July we will have a one-day Trunk Show with Ash & Bumble a small batch hand-dyed yarn company based right here in Indianapolis. They work with ethically sourced fiber from mills around the world and add their own with unique dyeing methods. The show will be in store on July 17th, 2021 from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m.

In August we will be at the Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Green Tree, PA. It’s been forever since we did a booth show and what better way than to work with Laura Regan as she takes over the show and expands it in the future. More about this soon!

If you haven’t gotten an Advent Calendar for 2021, we are about halfway through our stock. Once these are gone, I’m not sure we’ll get them back in, so now is the time to grab yours and be ready for the holidays (oh wow, did I just say that?).

If you didn’t notice, store hours are expanding again, as of the end of May we are now also open on Friday from 11:00 to 3:00. Come get your fiber fix!

Coming this Fall, the 2021 Fall Retreat will return to its previous format. We had so much fun with the virtual retreats but it’s time to get back in to see each other. As of right now, we will have these rules in place for participation. It is subject to change as we get closer to the event. We want to make sure that we are keeping everyone safe for our first in-person retreat.

  • Limited to 40 participants
  • Vax cards requested
  • During business hours, mask on in the store
  • We will close the retreat room to participants only so masks will not be required while you’re in the room.

The cost is $25 includes a swag bag, patterns, and 20% off yarn purchases excluding Advent Calendars. Susan wanted me to pass along that we most likely will not have access to a food truck and invites you to BYO food or visit one of the many local shops and restaurants for eats and treats.

Dates for the Retreat:

  • October 29, 12-10
  • October 30, 10-10
  • October 31, 10-4

And now, the best for last: MAKS Summer Sale will be June 17th through June 20th. We are offering 25% for in-store purchases and 30% for online purchases. This sale excludes Advent Calendars and Leading Men Fiber Arts. Time to stock up for summer projects or jump-start your holiday knitting (yes, I said it again!).

Come join us for the many events we have this summer, we look forward to seeing you again!

Knit Fast and Stay Safe,
Dru

In-Store Retreat

What IS the In-Store Retreat?
The In-Store Retreat is a weekend of meeting up with old friends and making new ones while working on your latest yarn project without the distraction of home and work.

For a fee of $25 for the entire weekend, you get a discount on all yarn in the store, as well as 7-10 free patterns, a cool shop bag and a chance to win one of the many door prizes we give away throughout the weekend.

Feel free to join us all weekend or just for an hour or two. We look forward to seeing you over the weekend!

What is an Over-Nighter?

An over-nighter is a night we set aside for our favorite yarn projects. Over-nighters start at 7:30PM and go on through the evening until the last person goes home. For $20 we provide pizza and drinks. You bring a snack and your latest project to work on. Sometimes we work on a service project, so be sure to check the blog before you join us. Can't wait to see you at our next over-nighter!
