A Weekend if Knitting with Holli Yeoh

A Weekend if Knitting with Holli Yeoh

Holli Yeoh is returning for a 2nd "weekend of knitting" from November 1-3. You can learn how the crochet hook is the knitter's friend, to integrate zippers into your knitting, and/or to "fine finish" your knitting projects.

Holli’s passion for knitting has spanned a lifetime, from learning to knit as a child to her arts degree majoring in textiles and jewelry, and a solid 15+ years of design and teaching experience. Her work has appeared in industry leading publications including Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Amirisu and Twist Collective, as well as in her Ravelry shop and book Tempest, published in collaboration with Sweet Georgia Yarns. Holli feels strongly about fine craftsmanship, believing that while there’s more than one right way to do things, it’s important to do it right! To this end, she teaches skills that enable knitters to feel justified pride in their finished objects, while accommodating different knitting styles and preferences. Students leave her workshops with an arsenal of valuable techniques, deep understanding of the choices to be make in knitting, and new confidence.

Over the course of the weekend, five Holli workshops scheduled. Go to the "Learning Opportunities" space of this website for details, including skill level needed, and easy online registration. And, save 10% when you register for 2 or more of Holli's workshops using code Holli10 at checkout.

Thanksgiving Hours & 72-Hour Sale!

Thanksgiving Hours & 72-Hour Sale!

72-Hour SALE!! This post is multi-part, so make sure to read through to its end.

First, we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you have the opportunity to spend relaxing time with family and friends, enjoying some tasty #fallharvest food during your visits. Have lots of fun but if travelling, please be safe.

Second, we want to confirm that we are open this weekend. Tonight, we close at 8 pm. Tomorrow, our hours are 10 am to 8 pm and Sunday, 12 noon to 5 pm — as per usual. On Monday, we will be open from 12 noon to 5 pm, given it’s a statutory holiday.

Third & most importantly, we’ve decided — at the last moment — to have a 72-hour sale to thank you, our wonderful fibre community, for your ongoing support of our #localyarnshop ♥️ Everything in the shop will receive a 10% discount at the time of purchase. If you have your TFN bag in hand, you’ll receive the extra 5% discount. And, to be fair to all, your TFN bag must be physically with you. Note: this up to 15% discount possibility cannot be combined with any other shop offer (e.g., class supplies discount).

Fourth, our #72hoursale extends to our online shop. You can shop from your favourite armchair & still get the 10% discount using the code “THANKS2019”.

The sale starts today, Friday, October 11 at 5 pm MST & runs till Monday, October 14 at 5 pm MST inclusive.
