Yorkshire Yarns is now on line!

There's LOTS going on at Yorkie Yarns. I'll try and make it short & me. Well...short anyway.

Yorkshire Yarns is now on line! We've only just begun and have quite a ways to go to get all our products on the site. Go have a look around and see what we're doing. You can even register a personal account while you're there. No bank card information is collected and never will be. When you go back and shop the convenience fast, online shopping will be yours!

Mark your calendars for the 2009 South Sound Yarn Crawl on April 15th-17th ! We've included 2 new shops and this year we'll have 3 winners. :-) And you must check out the participating Bed & Breakfast Inn's. The Thornewood Castle & Inn in Lakewood is my favorite. Wowza!

Our April class schedule is up. There are classes for beginning knitting, crochet, socks and entralac knitting. Check out our Google Calendar for more details. 

Our project of the month is quite worthy. Be part of Operation Gator and knit a gator for a soldier

Y'all know I love gadgets & gizmos. Right?

I've got some new ones!

When I first saw the Knit Kit I thought, "Whoa. Isn't that a cute little miniature toilet seat."  I took a closer look and this is what I saw. I'll have these in the store on Monday. Pretty cool, huh?

Also, we just got a shipment of measuring pens. It's an ink pen w/a built-in tape measurer. Slick.

Cat Borhdi will be teaching two all-day workshops YY on July 11th & 12th . She's teaching her ever popular sock class & mobius style. We're hoping her brand new sock book will be out in time as well! Each workshop will be 6 hours. The cost for one workshop is $85 .

Class sizes will be limited due to her enormous popularity.  You snooze....well. :-) Call for details and sign up today!

July 22nd marks the first Tacoma Rainiers Stitch N Pitch event for the south sound! The yarnie get together will be held on a private party deck with an all you can eat & drink buffet. And check this out. Fifteen...count 'em...FIFTEEN yarn shops will be "on deck" with lots of goodies to sell. Here's the best part. Yorkshire Yarns is hosting "French Girl Knit's" author, Kristeen Griffin-Grimes. She'll be in our booth for a meet & greet. There will be plenty of her new books on hand for autographs too!

I told ya there was a lot going on. :-) Ya'll have a great week.
