Local Yarn Shop Day 2020

This year has been anything but normal, so we’re going to continue with the momentum. This year for our LYS 2020 Celebration, MAKS is offering an online sale of 10% off everything in the shop. (I know right? Susan said that and I had to ask her twice if I heard right!)

So, Saturday, September 12, 2020 you can shop online, take advantage of the sale, arrange for pickup or shipping and get 10% off your ENTIRE order with the coupon code: LYS2020

Along with our sale, some of our great vendors have reached out to with some additional amazing deals for the party:

  • Plymouth Yarn is offering a free pattern by Little Nutmeg Productions designed by Meghan Jones with ANY purchase of Plymouth Yarn. You will receive a code from the shop to claim your pattern.
  • Blue Sky Yarns is offering with any BSY Yarn purchase, one free pattern from their site or their Ravelry Collection
  • Berroco Yarns has pulled out all the stops, celebrating LYS all week long with online events leading up to the sale on Saturday. Please check out their Facebook and Instagram accounts for details and events…

Please note, most of the codes going out for additional vendor give aways are time sensitive, so we will reach out to you even before your order is shipped or picked up so that you don’t miss out on the free stuff!

The fun doesn’t stop there either, Susan has been working on some sweet treats to be included in your purchases and there might even be a door prize awarded!

So please join us in celebrating LYS2020. You are the best part of us and we thank you for your continued support throughout this year and beyond!

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!
