    Where Creativity is American made...

JULY 18, 2017 -----  have you heard our news???  We are launching a Point-of-Sale system in the shop - launch date is August 1st. So for those of you who have the old handwritten sales slips - this is the end of them! Those will be valuable collectors items soon!!! We have been extremely busy putting SKU codes on all the artists' items in the shop ... and getting ready for the switch-over. Please remember that we will be closed from the end of business Friday July 27 through Monday July 31 - reopening with the new system in place on Tuesday August 1!! 

In the meantime there is still lots going on in the shop including classes galore. The August calendar will be available today (once I get more ink for the printer!) Check out the new classes ---  now is the time to get started on those holiday gifts - I know it is hot but start with the smaller items, lighter weight or cotton yarn, which we have plenty of, and you won't be in a bind come the holidays.

Check this out ---- Janet is stepping away from weaving this month and has added Wet felting class ....  come 'play' with soap and water and walk away with a lovely felted scarf; Tuesday Aug 15th 3-5:30. Call the shop to register. (We will have online registration capability once this site truly goes live! )


Do you have your Summer Challenge Project bag yet? No? we do have a couple left, stop in and get started, you have until Sept 5 to turn in your project....  lots of awesome prizes will be awarded!

While in the shop, give us your opinion - we are currently squeezing yarn from Joelle and her company Wandering Yarns. Let us know if you would like to see us carry  her yarns.

Looking forward to August: we will be rolling out Mountain Colors Twizzlefoot yarns.

Have an awesome day and we hope to see you soon!
