august recap

It’s been an eventful month!

August started with the Annual Chicago Yarn Crawl, a week long event that encouraged crafters to visit all 21 participating yarn shops in the Chicagoland area.

It was busy – our best Crawl ever!

We had many new customers in the shop during the Yarn Crawl, and our featured project was well received. Do you know about it?  It’s called Big Bad Blend, uses 4 colors of Big Bad Wool Weepaca, and is a simple scarf with a tassel flair.  So many people purchased the yarn to make this pretty scarf.

We created a Big Bad KAL so we could all knit it together – every Saturday from 3-5pm. It’s never too late to join, whether you’re just about to cast on or are ready to finish.

We introduced a couple of other projects during the Yarn Crawl too –  Big Bad Marl and the Crescent Pom Shawl.

Both are made from the super soft Big Bad Wool Weepaca.

For our Special Event during the Yarn Crawl, we hosted Margaret from Heidi & Lana.

She offered her lovely project kits and sweet stitch markers during a Wine & Cheese Party.

People had fun trying on her designs during the evening, especially Passage,  Discovery, and Reflection.

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.
