The Wooden Needle Newsletter - July 2021

Newsletter #12

July 2021

Want to know what’s happening at TWN?  Upcoming sales? Giveaways? Classes? Ideas? You’ve come to the right place! Once each month, we’ll send you our newsletter to keep you in the know!

What’s happening?

We are crafting along on WIP Wednesdays!

The past few months, we’ve been busy on Wednesday afternoons with MALs (make-a-longs). 

We’ve knit and crocheted shawls and blankets. Some folks are finished, but some aren’t and that’s okay.

We’re going to continue to meet on WIP Wednesdays from 2:00 until 5:00 in July to enjoy each other’s company and finish our projects.

If you’ve got a project using yarn you purchased at TWN, even if it wasn’t for a MAL, come join the fun on WIP Wednesdays!

Here's a little sneek peek of what's coming up in August on WIP Wednesdays!


Come to Sit & Stitch!

Do you like to knit? Crochet? Embroider? Something else? Bring your project -- whatever it is -- and join us on Thursday evenings. This is our time to enjoy a variety of fiber crafts. For Sit & Stitch, your crafting materials need not have been purchased from TWN.

Bring your project, and come craft with us!

*5:00ish until 7:00ish

What’s new?

Is there anything better than new yarn?

How about new yarn that’s made from 100% recycled fibers!

Berroco Remix Chunky feels good in your hands and is good for the earth.

Stop by and have a squish!

If you’ve seen any of our lovely National Park collection from Knitted Wit, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve just received the lovely July colorways.

What’s on sale?

Our weekly sales are posted on Facebook and our website. Here’s what will be on sale this month---

  • Araucania Nuble

  • Buttons

  • Mohair (Aerial and Cumulus!)

  • Tag blankies and burp cloths

What’s the giveaway?

For July, our giveaway will be a cute castle tote that any little girl would love. Keep an eye on our Facebook page around the first week or two of the month to find out how to enter the giveaway.

What are you gifting?

An insulated lunch box is a cute and practical gift. These make great gifts (even for yourself!), and the purchase price includes adding personalization.

What’s the UFO number for this month?

It’s not too late!! Join us for UFO (Unfinished Objects) this year. This is your chance to complete unfinished objects and/or create new project goals for the remainder of 2021. 

To begin, create a UFO list of projects. (We listed twelve, but feel free to make your list shorter.) Your list can include unfinished projects, new projects, parts of a large project or a combination of the three. Each month, we'll draw a number which will identify the project you'll work on over the coming month. On the third Thursday of each month, we'll meet to share our projects and choose a new number. At the end of the year, you’ll feel so proud of your accomplishments (and you can always put those lingering UFOs on your 2022 list!).

July - #11

What are you making?

Isn’t it fun to share your current project (or projects!) with friends? We love sharing with each other and with our customers. Take a look at Patty modeling her beautiful Hotel of Bees shawl. That’s not Gayla’s lunch in her lunch box. It’s the perfect yarn organizer for her Great British Baking Shawl.  The sweet mini quilt is going to be part of a mini quilt banner decorating Elaine’s sewing room.

That's it for our newsletter this month, but don’t forget to keep an eye on our Facebook page, blog, and website. 

Thanks for spending time with us!
