Oh how Sweet- Be Sweet arrived on Monday!

Artistic Yarn with a Conscience. That is the best way I describe this line of new yarns we got in Monday. The Magic Ball is our favorite with delectable colors and textures... almost like buying 5 skeins at a time!

Be Sweet offers shoppers true beauty. Proceeds from our high-quality handcrafted yarn and accessories fund a variety of projects, from supporting high school training programs to empowering disadvantaged South African women, with a world of compassion in between.

Get your Fix while you still can!

Our Cascade Fixation Yarns
are flying out the door like hotcakes.
Perfect for baby hats and socks this cotton yarn should be on your next shopping list!
Do not worry, we have ordered more... more colors and more of the same!

We're Not Trying to Pull the Wool over your Eyes... Promise!

It was great meeting everyone at my Open House....I have come to find out (after years of being a non-social knitter, happy in my own home knitting into oblivion) that knitters are such friendly people!!!

Anyway....I am going to give you some 'Food for Thought". Think about getting away near the end of October, staying in a cabin in the middle of the woods with fellow knitters, good companionship, good food, and knitting, knitting, knitting...away from family, home, work, and the daily stresses. During the day visiting the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair, taking classes (if you want) or just wandering around the booths.....and then coming back to the cabin to relax, eat, and knit! We could rent a cabin in Black Mountain (on the outskirts of Asheville, they have great cabins to rent because I've done it!) and head down the road to the SAFF.

Check out this site and let me know what you think. I am going anyway, but thought it would be fun to have a group of knitters! Let me know if there is some interest and we'll do it!

Here's the little guy we will be needle felting on Monday, July 14th from 6-8 and Saturday, July 19th from 10-12. The kit will be $15 and will contain everything you need to make this guy. Please register for the classes if you're interested!

Bring some band aids!!!!!!

There is also a stitch marker class on Saturday, July 19th from 1-2, in case you're interested.
You will also need to register for this class.

Don't forget the Card Workshop on July 12th. Learn to use all of the tools necessary to make amazing greeting cards for yourself or friends!
10% off on that day!
