FREE Love of the Game Scarf Class

Did someone say FREE class? Yes we did! Whether you are a sports enthusiast or you are dragged to the game, we all want to show our team spirit. While sitting at a Cal Berkley Football game I wanted to design a scarf that would be unisex, offer two sizes for those who like more or less scarf, and most especially be a project you could knit while watching a game. We just received in all of the wonderful team colors for our area, like the 49ers, Giants, A's, and Raiders, not to mention the perfect colors for all our local high schools. Join us for this fun and FREE Love of the Game Scarf class Tuesday, September 2nd from 12-2pm or 6-8pm, or Saturday, September 6th from 12-2pm.

If you haven't participated in this exclusive club before, now is your opportunity to join.  You can sign up for 6 months of gorgeous exclusively-dyed yarn and amazing patterns in the Dream in Color Dream Club! The girls at Dream in Color have worked really hard and rounded up some amazing designers this year like Laura Nelkin, Connie Chang and Kristin Omdahl.
The shipments will go out the first week of September, October, November, December, January and February. The prices range from $35 - $45 per month (plus applicable tax and shipping), depending on the yarn base featured that month. I've talked to the girls about some of the new yarns they have coming up this year for the club, and you're going to love them! Plus, they always come up with some of the most amazing colors for their Dream Club yarns.

Last year we had several customers who ordered  3-4 skeins of each monthly kit.  This allows you to have sweater quantities of each month's yarn.  You will receive a $5.00 discount on each additional kit.
This is a limited opportunity.  Be sure to stop by the boutique or give us a call at (916) 714-7719 to save your place in the Dream Club.
