July 2022

Want to know what’s happening at TWN?  

You’ve come to the right place! 

Once each month, we’ll send you our newsletter to keep you in the know.

Happy 246th Birthday, USA!

What’s happening?

Workshop Wednesdays!

Join us for Workshop Wednesdays!

Every month or so, we’ll begin a new project together.

Our goal is to help you learn new skills or practice old ones.

There is no charge for attending TWN Workshop Wednesdays. 

A basic knowledge of knitting or crocheting will be needed for these projects.

The only requirement is that you purchase your project materials here at TWN. 

You don’t have to attend every Wednesday--- come when you can, when you need help, or when you just want to join the party!

Workshop Wednesdays will take place every Wednesday afternoon from 2:00 until 5:00.

Bring your project -- whatever it is -- and join us on Thursday evenings. 

This is our time to enjoy a variety of fiber crafts.

Bring your project, and come craft with us!

Join the Trenton Sockettes!

Who needs the New York City Rockettes?

We’ve got the Trenton Sockettes!

We meet every Friday from 2:00 until 5:00.

As with all of our activities, watch the TWN Facebook page for more information.


What’s new?

We’re excited to begin carrying three new (to us) cotton yarns.

A few of the colorways have not yet arrived, but we really like what we’ve seen so far!


Gedifra’s Lana Mia Cotone Effetto is 90% cotton and 10% polyester.
The content makes it a great summer sock yarn.



If you’ve enjoyed our Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus solids in the past, we think you’re really going to like Cumulus Dappled. 


Look at all that color hiding inside Juniper Moon Farm’s Cumulus Degrade!


What are you gifting?

Going to the beach? 

Our shell bags are just the thing to take along.

The bags can even be personalized!

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!

June - #11


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. 

Kathy’s new grandbaby is going to love snuggling into this Cuddle Bag!

Needle Notes

We have our new Workshop Wednesday calendar out! We have a few new techniques that some will want to learn, but as always, you don't have to do exactly what we are doing in the workshop.  We are always glad to help you with whatever project you're working on.   First up on Workshop Wednesday is Christmas in July.  We have a variety of mini patterns for hats, mittens, socks and sweaters to decorate your tree and home.  This starts the first Wednesday in July.  


Have you see the new stickers and coasters with the shop graphics on them?  We also have holographic stickers of Florrie.  They are all so cute and will make great little gifts.  With half the year gone already, you can start thinking about using them for stocking stuffers for your knitting friends and family.


Speaking of Christmas, don't forget that the deadline for Christmas quilts will get here faster than you think.  The deadline for quilts is usually around the first of October, but we need custom orders sooner.  We have several custom quilts to do at the present time.  We also have a few t-shirt quilts in the works right now.  If you are thinking about having them by Christmas, please get your tops to us as soon as possible.  


Lots of new yarns are coming in so watch the Facebook page for those.

Take care everyone!

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!
