2 great trunk shows april 2 – april 6

We’re excited to host 2 great trunk shows – Twinkle and Blue Sky Alpacas – with lots of projects on display from April 2 – April 6

See many of the fashionable sweaters from the books Twinkle's Big City Knits and Twinkle's Weekend Knits (groovy sweater dress, karate sweater, evening shell, princess capelet, cloudburst cardigan, and more).  There will be autographed copies of both books for sale and lots of great colors of soft chunky wool to help you select the perfect project.

Check out the new spring looks from Blue Sky Alpacas and revisit some old favorites (skinny cardigan, 1940’s inspired gown, fitted evening top, simple raglan, eyelet baby blanket, baby dress, and more).  We’re stocked full of Blue Sky’s fabulous yarns and patterns.

Stop by April 2 – April 6 to be inspired by these trunk shows.

Enjoy a special 2 day sale…
