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.

What’s new?

Ever had your yarn roll underneath a table? 

Had to run to grab it from your furry friend?

We can help solve those problems in a beautiful way with a Lykke yarn box.


What are you gifting?

It may still be warm outside, but we can feel it in the morning air.
Gift a friend (or yourself!) a reminder that fall is coming with a beautiful kitchen towel. 

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!

August - #7

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.

We are proud to be a part of Trenton and strive to serve our community.  We have donated a quilt for the annual Trenton Halloween Carnival.  This quilt will be displayed in the United Southern Bank here in Trenton until the day of the carnival.  (Below is a picture of the quilt you could win.  It is a Scrappy Double Irish Chain which measures 86 x 86.) You can purchase chances in the local shops here in Trenton and at the carnival to win the quilt, 2 separate $500 prizes, and other items. It is a fun night for the entire family.  There will be games, food, a silent auction, bingo for prizes, a costume contest for the children, and other fun activities. Also, you can donate items for bingo prizes, the drawings, and the auction.  Bring any donations to our store and we will see that they get to the community center committee.  Have questions? Please free to call us at 270-954-9005. The proceeds from the carnival go to the renovations of our community center.
