meet ysolda teague – wednesday june 10th

We're so excited!

Scottish designer, Ysolda Teague, is spending an evening at our shop while on a whirlwind tour of US yarn shops.

Stop by anytime from 4-7 pm on Wednesday, June 10th to meet her,  chat with her,  knit with her, and admire her lovely designs.



Her patterns have appeared in Knitty, Twist Collective, and on her own great website

She'll have a suitcase full of samples – including projects from her new book, Whimsical Little Knits.  

You can purchase the book here and have it signed by Ysolda. 

We'll offer a special discount for her book and any yarn you purchase for her projects. 

Hope to see you Wednesday, June 10th! 

The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.

Contact us to learn more.
