Children and their Dads

Just a reminder that we are closed today, so we can spend time with our husbands, children and perhaps our Fathers.
Our Anniversary Sale was a HUGE success. I want to thank everyone who came to help us celebrate our phenomenal success at our Fabulous Yarn Boutique.
For all those who want in on what I call the mark down, mark down table.... I'll be posting the Great deals here on the blog, so if you are interested you can just give us a call and we can pop it into the mail for you. All the details will be in the next post.
Enjoy your day with your Daddy!

More Crazy Mark Downs!!!

The First Day of our Anniversary Sale was so successful we've had to put more merchandise on the Markdown, Markdown tables.
I'm at home now but when I get to the shop, I'll post some of what's on the Markdown, Markdown table with the sale prices. One customer yesterday said it was so cheap they felt bad like they were stealing yarn. No worries though. We've got a mountain full, or a UPS Truck full of yarn scheduled to come in the next few weeks, driven by the delicious Trip. So strike while the deals are still smoking.
We'll be open until 9 or 10 tonight for all those working girls/boys out there. So be sure to stop by for some nibbles, beverages and smoking hot deals.
P.S. You can get more tickets for our fabulous prizes by buying yarn, and by passing the sale forward. Tell your friends to let us know you sent them and you can get an additional ticket. Did I mention each of the baskets have 100% Italian Cashmere in them?

Art Class

On Saturday morning and afternoon, we met under the Redwoods where Drin and Carol showed us the ins and out of Fine Felting.

The wind was perfect, with a slight breeze, and we all listened carefully as they explained how they got started, and some of their techniques. We pulled apart the cotton candy textured fiber, and enjoyed the wet fun of it all.

I loved working with the roving, deciding where I wanted to put what color. It was a little like fingerpainting with unspun wool.

The class was such a success that we will be having another one, later this summer, September 15, 2007 from 10-1pm. The cost will be $75.00, almost all of the supplies are included, so make sure you call Now to reserve a spot. 916.714.7719
This art form is absolutely perfect for making one of a kind, wearable art for your friends and family. It doesn't take a lot of time, and you will be pleasantly surprised on how fun, exciting, and easy this is.

Tick Tock

Just a reminder that we are closed on Mondays for the summer! I'll be spending my Monday dropping the eldest son off at the airport in Oakland to spend some time with his Grandparents. A good time will be had by all. See you Tuesday!
Only 39 hours until we open. :o)

Celebrate Your Daddy!

In Honor of our Fathers, or our Husbands we will be closed on Sunday, June 17th to spend time with our families.
If you haven't bought your Dad a gift yet, nothing says I love you like a pair of hand knit socks. You can even make them out of a very soft worsted weight, and you can whip out a pair in a week, or even less. Not sure how to knit socks? We've got plenty of sock classes. Toe Up, Top Down, 2 at a time. Wrap up the yarn, needles and pattern, and let him know, he'll get a pair as soon as you are done.
