Chicks With Sticks - New Hours and New Products!
New hours and more new stuff!
Effective October 1 (that's Thursday!), we will be opening an hour earlier Monday-Friday: 11:00am-6:00pm. Our Saturday hours are extended, too: 10:00am-3:00pm! More time for yarny goodness!
The last couple days have had us unpacking lots of boxes! Just arrived are new yarns from Rowan, Ella Rae, Juniper Moon Farms, and more. Plus, a new batch of Pom Poms from Ikigai!
|Rowan! We now have Felted Tweed! Our first box had 12 fantastic colors from Kaffe Fassett, along with his newest pattern collection featuring his color palette. We are expecting 22 more colors to arrive soon! Oh my goodness, these colors make me drool!!
What else is new?
Those boxes also contained new colors of Ella Rae Superwash Classic worsted, Juniper Moon Farms Patagonia Organic Merino DK, and EYB Tenderfoot sock yarn.
Are socks your thing? We just received 3 of 5 holiday socks colors of West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply. This yarn flew out the door last year and supplies are limited, so don't delay! We expect the last 2 colors in early November. Also new in sock are 6 new colors of Regia by Kaffe Fassett. Sock LOVE!
How about pom poms? We have a new supply of the awesome critter-friendly faux fur pom poms from Ikigai Fiber. They are a great way to put the finishing touch on a hat!
There is still time to reserve your Madeline Tosh Advent kit. The kits will be in the shop later this fall. Each kit has 12 TML Unicorn Tails featuring 6 core and 6 special holiday colors, along with some little gifties and a pattern for both knit and crochet!
MKAL, anybody? There is still time to get in on the Westknits Mystery Knit-along, Slipstravaganza MKAL2020! If you've not done one of the Westknits MKALs, you're in for a treat! Check it out on Ravelry and come in to let us help you pick just the right colors! The first clue will be released on October 9. Let us know if you'd be interested in getting "together" on Zoom to mystery knit together.!
Cross-stitchers: We have some of the newest designs from JBW available, including her latest limited edition pattern collector's booklet, Christmas Ornaments II! Also new in the stitchery area are Beadsmith beading mats and adorable magnetic needle minders from the Clever Clove! And Q-Snaps are back in stock!
While we haven't been able to gather together for charity knitting, many of you have been busy knitting for charity on your own. The Kalamazoo Knitting Guild picked up 30 baby hats that will be donated to local hospitals as soon as they are open for donations again. Thank you to all who dropped off hats! Now we're moving into cold weather gear season. We will again be collecting handmade hats, mittens, scarves, cowls, and more for Seita Scholars (WMU) as well as local families in need. Donated yarn may be available for you to use - just call the store if you have any questions.
Take your mind off the upcoming election for a bit with a new project - your nerves will thank you! Take care and we hope to see you soon!
