Chicks With Sticks Late Autumn Update
Late autumn update
|Is it just me or is autumn flying past? West MI Yarn Quest has come and gone (thank you, thank you, thank you for visiting us!) and Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Have you started your holiday knitting or crocheting? We've got some lovely yarn to help you create the perfect gifts.
|We have Blue Sky Fibers new Woolstok Light in stock! This lovely soft single ply yarn is awesome for colorwork or any other project requiring fingering weight yarn. How about the Bainbridge Hat and Cowl?
|Charity Update: We are still collecting donations of knitted/crocheted items for the Seita Scholars program at Western Michigan University. Hats, cowls, mittens/mitts/gloves, socks, and slippers are all welcomed gifts. Of particular need still are adult-size gender-neutral hats and slippers. Please drop off your items to the shop by Saturday, November 27 (Thanksgiving weekend). A huge thank you to all who have so generously donated items so far!
Starting Thursday, December 2: Thursday Night Hang-Out. Got a project on your needles or hook that's giving you problems? Do you need a little help or maybe some moral support? Do you just want to get out of the house and hang out? Come on in Thursdays 6-8 pm for Amy's Thursday Night Hang-out sessions. Most of the time it'll be unscripted help time, but we may occasionally partake in a KAL or CAL - who knows? (I've got my eye on Stephen West's Hiberknits KAL that starts right after Christmas!) The cost is $5 and is drop-in (no sign-up required).
Thanksgiving Weekend Hours: We will be closing at 4pm on Wednesday, Nov. 24. Closed on Thanksgiving. Open Friday, Nov. 26 11am-6pm and Saturday, Nov. 27 (Small Business Saturday!) 10am-4pm.
Stay warm and keep those needles and hooks humming along!
Happy stitching from your Chicks With Sticks crew,
Amy, Michelle, Ann, Darlene K., Darlene C., Orell, and Jane
