SOUPS & DIPS: We have filled in all the gaps with Frontier soup mixes, many of which are gluten free .... perfect for those colder days we have been having - stock up now this week's heat wave will not last!

We have a new order of Manos' Alegria for this event and are pairing it up with some luscious hand-dyed yarns in stock. (I stopped at The Periwinkle Sheep on Friday and restocked .... just luscious and lovely!)
We are kitting these for you with the pattern & a marker for $65. Come in and select your colors soon! If you have your own skein you would like to use, feel free to bring it in and we can help you choose your colors.
Blue Hills Yarn: While in the shop, you are going to want to check out Fernada's hand-dyed yarns! She is from right here in Northboro and will be working on some heavier, fingering yarns for us.... but these are definitely high on the 'drool' list!
NOTE: For those of you who saw the last note that we had placed a very large order with Cascade, due to a misunderstanding, that order has been cancelled. We will still continue to order specific yarns for you, but will not be restocking our shelves at this time. Sorry for any confusion!

March has 5 weeks/ Saturdays - we were thinking it might be fun to celebrate the 5th Saturday since it only happens a couple of times a year - what would you like to see us offer??
Idea #1 - buy 4 items and get 25% off the 5th??
What's your idea??
Remember we can't give away the shop!
