Fall Yarn is Arriving at Chicks With Sticks!

Chicks with Sticks logo

July is wrapping up...

I love summers in Michigan so I'm usually sad to see July end. However, this July has been extra challenging for my family with the passing of my father and an unexpected hospital stay for my mother, so I'm kind of ready to see it in the rearview mirror.  My heartfelt thanks to our awesome staff who kept the shop functioning these past few weeks and to our wonderful patrons who have offered their love and support.  Mom is now home and doing well!

You know what else is nice about end of July/early August?  Fall yarn starts to arrive!  Here's a peek at what's new:

 From Wonderland Yarns/Frabjous Fibers: Chevron Scarf Kit is a simple and fun kit that comes with a 4oz skein of Mad Hatter and 4-1oz coordinating mini skeins.
Also new in the shop:
From Berroco: A refresh of our stock of Ultra Wool in worsted and DK and over 20 colors of Berroco Vintage!  We have also added more colors to our stock of Vintage Baby.
