Before we show some great photos and announce the February prize winners, we just have an announcement about the month of March. From about March 5th through maybe the end of the month we will be a little bit slower at fulfilling orders and /or answering emails. We are going to be a bit short staffed so we just wanted to let everyone know this! So please know that all orders will go out, but it will take a few says longer than usual and all emails will be answered but the response time will be just a bit slower. Thanks for your patience during this period.
The good news is lots of great things will be added into the store after this period including yet another gorgeous new line of Yarn Botanika yarn from Europe. The Fleece Artist and Handmaiden Yarns, kits and patterns should be arriving! We also will be adding Hipknits luxury Yarns and patterns from England, and Chewy Spaghetti yarns from California. Fun! We have an incredibly gorgeous new DK weight yarn from a fiber artist in South Africa named Valida, and also a lovely DK merino and silk from Sheep Shop Yarn Co, their new Sheep Shop THREE yarn. New yarn shipments will be arriving from Yarn Pirate and Sunshine Yarns and gorgeous spinning orifice hooks and stitch markers from Sereknity. Also planned are some great new patterns both exclusive patterns, some neat felting kits, and some wonderful indie designer patterns..... We are also looking at some really fabulous spring/summer yarns and patterns and we hope to tell you about those soon!
