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.

While you wait…from your friends at MAKS

Voting will finish in just two days. If you haven’t voted yet, I encourage you to do so. And while you’re waiting, we’ve created a pattern for you to knit. From my personal experience, knitting while waiting to vote had several interesting benefits. Firstly, it depoliticized the whole process. During my two hour wait, not one person asked who I was voting for or what was my party affiliation. It did however start several conversations about the project, about my knitting, and seemed to make the time pass much faster.

No matter what party you vote for it’s important to exercise your right to vote. Please enjoy this project while you wait and I hope you’ll make some new knitting friends in the process. This pattern was developed by Susan while she was waiting in line to vote and uses Berroco Mochi, but can be used with any chunky weight yarn.

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!
