Greetings from Yarn Cravin’
Hello and Happy Summer!
In honor of the holiday weekend and the city of Perrysburg’s parade taking place we have decided to be closed this Saturday, June 2nd.
Meanwhile this week we’ll be hosting a sale on red, white, and blue yarns! If the yarn has one color it’s 20% off, two colors it’s 30%, and three is 40%. (Behind the Pines and Destination Yarns are excluded.) Wool Buddy Felting Kits and African Market Baskets are also 40% off! Bathroom Items are 75% off. All this today through Friday, June 28th – July 1st.
As some of you might have heard Dream in Color is retiring their club yarns this year so membership won’t be available. As sad as this news is, Behind the Pines has been in planning stages for a club and is ready to release the Pine Cone Club starting in September! It’s a twelve month club featuring different weights and fibers ranging between 25$-40$ and each skein will have recommended patterns available through ravelry for use. If you are interested in joining the Pine Cone Club please come in or call the shop to sign up by July 23rd. Because this is the first year we ask that Club members be committed to purchasing the yarn.
I-75 Yarn Crawl Passports and Bags are in store and ready for you to pick up if you ordered them in advance. And if you are thinking of participating passports are still available for 5$. Just stop in and we’ll get you taken care of!
When the school year ends and outside activities increase, remember to take some time out for yourself to knit and crochet! It is proven that the repetitive action of our craft can induce a relaxed state much the same as yoga or meditation. It can also lower your heart rate, blood pressure and reduce harmful blood levels of the stress hormone cortisol. So don’t pack away your needles, hooks and yarn for the summer, but keep them clicking!
We have many great opportunities to offer that will keep your summer knitting in full swing.
Check out our newest class schedule on our website or stop in for a list.
We are in the planning stages for another great Claudia Yarn KAL to start in August. Stop by to check my progress, sign up and look at colors.
Join in the fun during the months of June, July and August. Summer is a great time for sock knitting. They are small and easy to carry along where ever you go. Plus, if you knit socks for Cristmas gifts, just think how happy you will be when December rolls around and they are already knitted! Stop in to sign up and recieve your bingo card and rules!
