Correction: Wabash Woollen Works Trunk Show

Ooops…Bad Dru

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.


Store Knitter Knews!

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?

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!
