Welcome back! Anna here to report a successful Fourth of July was had by all here at the Yarn Barn. Carrie and Robbie have just returned from a long weekend in Nashville, and the rest of us have been doing the best we can to brave the humid 90 degree weather of Southwestern Ohio ( at least we didn't get rained out this year!).
Now that the holiday festivities are behind us, we are ready to focus on the busy months ahead. Our events team has been putting together some workshops, classes, and (!) a new yarn club which we are super excited about!
The idea to start a yarn club came about almost as unexpectedly as the “Celestial” yarn we are planning to send out the first month of the program. As we were brainstorming ideas and studying the uniqueness of each Celestial skein, it became apparent that we should start a “one-skein wonder” club.
So that's exactly what we decided to do. The plan is that at the beginning of every month we will mail out a surprise skein of our luxury yarn, along with a 100 yd. sample of complimentary color yarn, and a pattern. By the end of the month, the small knitting project can be completed (with pictures posted to our Facebook so we can ogle over them!) and we will send you the project for the next month. There are no rules, no pressure to finish on time, just inspiration and encouragement for you to knit with us and finish a project every month!
As the seasons change and each month gets colder, we will send you thicker weighted yarns (aka DK, worsted, chunky weights). Each month's patterns will also correspond with the temperature outside, so you're not knitting a hat in the middle of summer and a lace shawl in the winter!
We are very excited to be offering this club to all of our fellow knitters! Please check out all of the pricing and sign up information here. Be sure to sign up at the beginning of the month to have time to receive your materials and finish your project. Email us or comment below if you have any further questions.
We have many more exciting things on the horizon so as always - keep crafting - and you'll hear more from us next week! ~
