love & loyalty – part 2

Part 2 of love & loyalty is of course, loyalty!

We are pleased to announce a new customer loyalty program that begins February 1st!


As a customer, you will automatically be enrolled. For every dollar you spend, you’ll receive a point. For every 200 points you accumulate, you’ll receive a $10 gift card. Every time you reach 1000 points you will get a bonus $10 gift card! Points will be eligible on everything in the shop excluding sale items, services and classes.

Happy shopping to you and thank you for your loyalty!

love & loyalty – part 1

February 2018 is two-fold for us, with elements of both love & loyalty!


First, love! We want everyone to come out and show their love by joining us in a knit-and-crochet-along to make baby blankets that will be donated to the local organization Project Linus.

KAL/CAL For a Cause

Sundays from 3-5pm

February 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th

Project Linus is a nationwide non-profit organization that provides handmade, machine-washable blankets to children in need. We will be donating skeins of Flutterby Chunky, a super soft and washable chenille yarn that is perfect for baby blankets. Just bring yourself and some needles or hooks to get started!  We will have some pattern suggestions and you can also check the Project Linus website for some of their knit and crocheted pattern recommendations. Most blankets use a 9-10 needle or I-J hook and can be worked up very quickly. Not to mention, we always have a great time when we are hanging around and stitching together. New to knit or crochet? You have the skills to do this! Come and show your love with us to help a child in need!

It’s not too late to jump in on our Swoncho-long!



We’ve just gotten started and look what we have to show for ourselves so far…


Well, ok, one of those is the start of a Sunset Highway, but the point is we have all kinds of colorwork going on, and many folks are trying it for the first time. The Swoncho-long officially meets Saturdays from 3-5pm, but they seem to trickle in on Sundays as well. Come on in during the weekends and we’ll help you get set up with a great colorwork project!

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.
