You don’t have to attend every week--- come as you can, when you need help, or when you just want to come!. 

Workshop Wednesdays happen every Wednesday afternoon from 2:00 until 5:00.

Questions? Just give us a call!

What’s new?

At TWN, we don’t think it’s ever too hot to craft.

Use Huasco Cotton to knit or crochet those cool, summer projects.


The latest National Park colorways from Knitted Wit just arrived.

Oh, yes— they are beautiful!


It’s always a wonderful day when Wonderland arrives!

We just received the latest Literary Realms and Blossom colorways.

What are you gifting?

Got a friend getting ready to travel? A cute Viv & Lou Retreat Tote might be the perfect gift.


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 month. 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!

May - #6


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?

Isn’t it fun to share your current project (or projects!) with friends?
We love sharing with each other and with our customers.

Needle Notes

We had a marvelous time at the Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival.  Thanks to everyone being understanding about our closure so that our small business could take a field trip day.  The ladies here do so much for me every day, and I wanted us to have a day of fellowship and fun. (We most certainly had that!) We saw some of our customer/friends at the festival, and we saw so many great vendors. We found a few new things we would like to order for the store.  We even bought goodies for ourselves.  It was a good time for us to support other small businesses.  Keep watching and listening for the new things that will be coming in the future.  


Don't forget Main Street Festival will be here June 10th from 3 pm until 8 pm and June 11th from 9 am until 4 pm.  We’ll have our purple tent in front of the store and lots of goodies on sale.  Come visit us, and show us your projects.  We love to see what people are working on! 

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. 

Thanks for spending time with us!
