Great Northern Yarn Haul

It all starts tomorrow!  22 shops across Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont are participating in this fun encouragement to get out on the road and see new yarns, new project ideas, and make new friends!  You need to visit only 10 shops to be eligible for one of the grand prizes this year, and each shop will be featuring some special goodies.  Here at Yarn & Yoga, we have coupons from Main St. businesses, treats from our own shelves, and a special swag bag for the first 15 shoppers on Friday, July 13.  The event runs through July 29, though, so you have two weeks and three weekends to enjoy the fun!  We look forward to welcoming lots of friends!  

3rd Annual Great Northern Yarn Haul - July 13-29

We're at it again - your know how fun this is!  Twenty-two shops from around Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine are participating again in this very cool yarn shop crawl.  Your purchase of $20 worth of goods at any of the participating shops gets you the bag (new design this year!) and "passport" to get signed at each shop.  Prize structure is improved this year:  (2) random draws to win one skein for those visiting 10+ stores, (2) random draws to win two skeins for those visiting 15+ stores, and (1) Grand Prize random draw to win the whole shebang for those that visit all participating stores. 

The first 15 shoppers who begin their Yarn Haul at Yarn & Yoga will earn our regular wonderful goodie bag as well a 5 yoga free classes, a free shop membership, 2 skeins of select yarn, 1 set of needles, and 1 Y&Y pattern!

Kids Knitting After School!

After School Knitting for Kids is Back! Third Thursdays of each month at 3:15 (ish) to 4:30 (ish)
September 21st
October 19th
November 16th
December 14th (second Thursday, due to holidays)

Yarn & Yoga is happy to announce that we will again be offering an after school knitting group for kids. Parents are welcome (and encouraged!) to join in, but particularly with children older than first grade, parents aren't "required!"

If your child is a new knitter, it will be best if they have a lesson before joining the group. You can call the shop to set that up. Lessons are $15 for two sessions; scholarships are available.

Linda and Anne will be available to help with knitting projects, and will introduce a "fun project" to make each afternoon that we meet.

We have kid needles and lots of donated yarns to use, so cost of supplies is very reasonable or non-existent.   There is NO COST for the group, though we ask families who feel they can to make a donation to our "Food Shelf Jar."

Let us know if you and your children are interested, or just come. Look forward to seeing you on the 21st!
