It's July and new yarn and samples are coming through the door at lightning speed!?  It can only mean one thing -- Yarn Crawl starts next weekend.  Here are the highlights:

Friday, August 1 from 6PM - 8PM Customer Appreciation Party
We will be debuting a limited edition, Private Label Knit 1 Yarn.  It's exclusive and artisanal and gorgeous.  The party features door prizes, a $50 gift certificate for the winner of the evening's raffle, refreshments and a chance to pick up your Passport.

We are featuring the wonderful yarn and concept that is Shibui.  Come see a selection of model garments made with mixes of Shibui fiber.  The mix idea, in the words of Shibui fuses modern taste with classic silhouettes, creating a line of elegant and functional designs.  Affordable luxury yarns and inventive, elegant patterns with  creative and accomplished designers like Julie Hoover, Kirsten Johnstone and Lori Versace just to name a few, is what Shibui is all about.  On Wednesday, August 6 you will have a chance to explore the concept yourself during The Mix Party.  Each participant receives mini skeins of each fiber.  You will have the chance to try your own mixes and try on garments; it's akin to mixing paint colors, but it's fiber!  This party is for knitters of every level and budget; you can't make a mistake and you can make a wonderful and unique piece for under $50.  There is a $10 charge for participating, but you can apply it to your Shibui purchase of $20 or more on the day of the party. Please call to register 773-244-1646 or send me an email at

A new shipment of Madelinetosh is in the house!  We also have a fantastic selection of Jul closures, a great selection of the new Addi Rocket needles and a whole lot more!  And as with each Yarn Crawl, everything in the store is 10% off. 

We love Yarn Crawl and we can't wait to see all of you friends, new and old!
