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.

Truncated Business Hours UPDATED!

Adding additional hours! MAKS is currently open for order pickup on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11-3. Limited browsing will be allowed during open business hours, to ensure your safety we will be limiting the number of customers allowed in the store at one time. You may call ahead to find the best times.

Happy Holidays and Upcoming Events

Next Saturday, November 29th is the Fountain Square Local Business Holiday. Because, honestly, after this year, we need more holidays!

We just finished our Virtual Fall Retreat with some really cool giveaways. We have more events coming soon! We’ll send a note out on our rescheduled Wabash Woollen Mills Trunk show. And if you haven’t picked up one of our Advent Calendars yet, there are a few left and they will make a great addition to your holiday knitting.

So for Friday and Saturday only (November 27th and 28th), we will be doing 10% off of in-store yarn. We will also offer 10% off on the website using the coupon code [MAKS10]. This will count for all yarns except MAKS yarns. Now is the time to pick up those last-minute gift projects or even yarn for your favorite knitter’s Christmas Wish List.

For the event, we will have special holiday hours on Friday and Saturday.

  • Friday 11:00 to 6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday 10:00 to 4:30 p.m.
  • Sunday 12 to 4:00 p.m. (normal hours)

Just a bit of housekeeping, if you are signed up for the Wednesday class, it will NOT be meeting this week. (Thanksgiving Week)

And congratulations to the door prize winners from the fall retreat. And great big thanks to the generous gifts from Berroco Yarns and Universal Yarns!

Thank you so much from Susan, the shop staff, and me for being a part of our MAKS family. This year has been challenging and it makes us even more thankful that you’re here with us!

Knit like there’s no tomorrow,

Heads Up! Important Event News for this weekend!

Susan called from the umbrella closet on the beach at Sanibel Island (you can ask her when you see her about that story), to ask me to let you all know about an update for this weekend. The Wabash Woollen Works Trunk Show for this Saturday, November 14th has been put on temporary hold. We are hoping to reschedule it in the coming weeks (will be on a Saturday) before December 5th. We’ll update you as soon as we have it on the schedule again!

Also, she asked me to let everyone know that has ordered their Advent Calendar that they are ready to pick up this Saturday! If you haven’t ordered one yet we still have a few left. You can call the shop to order or order it from the website!

Order your Advent Calendar Here!

Stay safe and knit like there’s no tomorrow!

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!
