wow… thanks for donating your stash


Thanks to everyone who participated in our Stash Bash last weekend!

You brought us so much yarn!!


Here’s Jen sorting through all of it to separate machine washable from hand washable.

We look forward to donating it to Project Linus, the Mother Bear Project, and various local school knitting groups.

join us for a spring fling…


This weekend and next weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 3-5 pm, let’s gather together to knit and crochet itty bitty chicks, eggs, & bunnies for our Spring Window Display.

Everyone who participates will receive 10% off their yarn purchase during the weekend.

And for every critter you create you’ll be entered in a chance to win a Nina Gift Card.

Yarn and jelly beans will be provided, but please bring needles/crochet hooks if you have them.  Double pointed needles will be especially helpful.

We hope you’ll come fling into spring with us!


If you want to make any of these cute things at home, here are the pattern links:


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.
