The next Progressive Needles mystery Knit Along sponsored by Skacel with Michelle Hunter will be starting on Thursday, January 7. We will be knitting a cowl using Sueno DK a washable merino viscose bamboo blend, very soft with a lovely hand. It also feels really nice next to the skin. We will be making a cowl using 2 colors and Fair Isle techniques. Two skeins, one of each of two colors for the 22 in small , or two of each of two colors for the 40 inch large and size 5 circular needles are required materials. We will be learning the two hand technique for Fair Isle. It should be fun! I am looking forward to it!
Market Street Yarn and Crafts/Sew Creative will be open until 6:30 pm
Saturday, December 5.
Parkersburg will be holding Winterfest (I believe for the first time) on Saturday, December 5. As a consequence of events planned for the afternoon and evening, Market Street will be closed. The Christmas Parade will be at 2:00 pm. Other events include voting for best Christmas decorations (we did not sign up for this event), special events for kids, horsedrawn carriage rides on Market between 4 and 7, and a Christmas concert at ST. Francis Xavier at 7:00.
Come in and join us for some winter fun--isn't knitting by the window while watching the parade and drinking hot tea the best kind of winter fun!
This is a big week--Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday AND the 10 year anniversary of Market Street Yarn and Crafts! Can you believe it? Ten years ago this week we opened our store with a tiny inventory and great hope! We never dreamed we would still be in business after 10 years! Of course, we wouldn't be if it weren't for our wonderful customers who have supported us faithfully for 10 years through thick and thin! We have met so many people and made so many friends through the stores. I can't think of a better way to spend retirement--what a joy it is to come to work every business day to our own store and friends who share our love of fibers and the wonderful feeling that making something gives us.
To celebrate, we are having a special 10th Anniversary sale on November 27 (Black Friday) and November 28 (Small Business Saturday)! All in stock items in the store will be 25% off! Sale yarn (in the bins) will be 25% off- if you buy less than the bag and 50% off (as usual) if you buy the whole bag.
Come in and celebrate with us! We look forward to seeing you this week!
