What’s the UFO number for this month?

Do you see them?

They're watching you!

All those unfinished projects----


It's time to pull them out of their hiding places and get them finished! Join us for UFO this year! This is your chance to complete unfinished objects or create new 2022 project goals. To join our group, simply create a UFO list of twelve projects. Your list of twelve projects 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 weeks. On the third Thursday of each month, we'll meet to share our projects and choose a new number. Just think! At the end of the year, you'll feel so good with all those FOs!

March - #9


What? UFO - Unfinished Objects

When? Third Thursday of each month 5:00 until 7:00

How? Work on the chosen number project from your list until the third Thursday

**For UFO projects, yarn does not have to be purchased from TWN.

What are you making?

Needle Notes

We've gotten in a few new yarns and have seen lots of projects finished in our groups. Coming to TWN and stitching with others encourages you to not only start new projects but finish the ones you've already started. You can get help if you're stuck on something you're working on and enjoy the companionship of other crafters. 


Don’t forget that LYS (local yarn store day) is coming on the 30th of April. We'll have our yarn walks and specials all day--- and our grand prize! You need not be present to win, but you must come in to register for the giveaway. 


Main Street Festival is coming to Trenton in June this year. We'll have our tent set up out front and have our sidewalk sales going.  There will be lots of vendors for food and other crafts.

Hope to see you all soon! 



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