Introducing! New Lines, New Colors, Must Haves, OH MY!

We’ve got some brand new things at MAKS for you to check out!

Berroco Yarns

Our new chunky weight yarn is a blend of alpaca, kid mohair, and nylon. Create accessories and garments that are soft, fuzzy, and light with this unique hand-dyed yarn. Use by itself or held together with one of our classic workhorse yarns.

Your new favorite yarn you didn’t know you were missing. This baby alpaca, wool, and nylon blend come in an easy to work chainette yarn. The subtle speckled colors in this heavy worsted yarn create soft and light, yet warm accessories and garments.

Millefiori Light Luxe
Our Millefiori Light Luxe is just that kiss of glam you can give to all your favorite Millefiori Light projects. Colors ebb and flow in the Millefiori Light yarn you already love with a subtle sparkle.

A beautiful color flow with the soft halo of mohair is what makes Tiramisu a wonderful yarn to work with. A light worsted weight yarn containing wool, acrylic, mohair, and silk. The colors flow from brights to dark to make a beautiful self-striping fabric.

Knitted Wit

Her Story-September 2020: Yalitza Aparicio, a Mexican actress who made her film debut in 2018’s Roma, which centers on the Indigenous experience in Mexico, is the highlighted woman. For her performance, she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, becoming the first Indigenous American woman and the second Mexican woman to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination, following Salma Hayek for her role in 2002’s Frida. Beautiful yarn, beautiful woman!

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!
