Join us July 27, 2019 from 11am - 1pm for a yarn swap!
Do you have stash that is languishing, unused and unappreciated? Bring your unwanted yarn (wool, cotton, alpaca, linen, silk, llama, etc - no 100% acrylic/polyester/nylon yarns please) to Must Love Yarn during the week of July 20th-26th to exchange for tickets to be used during the Swap. Donations of 10 skeins or more will receive an in-store discount of 10% valid for a single purchase 7/27 ~ 7/29 (some restrictions apply). Click here for all of the details about the event.
The 4th Annual Great Northern Yarn Haul officially begins July 12th! We'll be hosting a kickoff party Friday evening, stop by anytime between 5pm and 7pm and with a $20 purchase you'll get your official bag (while supplies last) and passport, we'll also have light refreshments. Also don't miss the presentation by local Vermont artist Eve Jacobs Carnahan - "Art Knitting: Creative Beginnings and Contemporary Directions". The presentation begins at 5:30pm, details can be found on our events calendar.
Local Yarn Store Day
April 27, 2019
Local Yarn Store Day is a brick-and-mortar yarn shop appreciation day created by TNNA Yarn Group. LYS Day will take place on April 27 and is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners to drive awareness and celebrate the craft. Vendors and retailers alike are coming together to showcase the benefits of locally owned yarn stores through an array of special products, classes and more!
Must Love Yarn will be celebrating Local Yarn Store Day with free patterns, free pattern books with project yarn purchase, giveaways and more! This year we will also be hosting two yarn trunk shows. We will have Rachel joining us from Silkworm Studios and Liz will be here from Kingdom Fleece & Fiberworks!
We have some seats still available for our trip to New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY! We will be heading down on Saturday October 15th for a fun filled day of sheep, yarn, fiber, food and friends! Won't you join us? Click the link for all of the details and to register.
I've been working on putting together the class schedule to get us through the fall and holiday season. We've been getting lots of great requests for classes and I'll do my best to squeeze as many of those into the schedule as I can! We are always looking for class ideas, so do be sure to send your ideas and requests to us as you think of them! So far I've got: Intro to Crochet, Socks Your Way (double points, magic loop, 2 circulars, 9" circulars, whichever you prefer, toe up or cuff down, we'll address all of your questions and try out some heels and toes too), Beginning Knitting, Ravelry: A Tool Every Knitter Needs (an intro to using and getting the most out of Ravelry), A Hat For Everyone (learn some simple steps to make hats for the whole family that fit without having to use a pattern!), Demystifying Mittens (They really are so much fun to make, don't let the thumb frighten you!). This gives us a pretty good start for the upcoming season, we don't have dates set yet, we're working on that, but we'll post all of that information as it's released here on the website, on Facebook, Ravelry and we'll send out our Newsletter too! I hope you are as excited about these classes as I am, I can't wait to teach them!
Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I checked in here so I thought that I would sit down and say hi! I am working on putting together the class list for the next batch of classes, here is what it looks like so far (no dates yet, that is what I have to get squared away!): a beginner cowl class, a first sweater class, a technique class where we will be making a cowl that has a simple lace chart and beads and utilizes a provisional cast-on (lots to learn in this class!), as well as a finishing class and last but not least a class on how to fix mistakes in your projects. Once I get all the details hammered out, I will post the class list to our website in the Shop - Classes section, to our Facebook page, in our Ravelry group and I will also send out an email to our email list, so keep an eye out for that update!
Also, we wanted to tell you about some new yarns that will be coming in before too long…
You’ve asked for it, now we’re getting it… Madelinetosh is on order! We’ve got Tosh DK and Twist Light on order, when it arrives we will let you all know!
We also have lovely yarns from Zen Yarn Gardens that are being dyed for us right now! It is on their Serenity 20 base, a gorgeous blend of 70% Superwash Merino/20% Cashmere/10% Nylon, just wait until you squish it!
So that’s a bit of what’s new with us, what’s new with you? We’d love to see the projects that you’ve been working on! You can post your projects to our Ravelry page, our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram or Twitter @mustloveyarn
