Happy New Year!
Grab your crafty project and let’s get this party started!
It’s time for UFO to begin again!
Our UFO group is a great place to finish old projects and/or plan new ones.

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.

Moda Scrap Bags are back!
We’ve had these great little bags of wool in the past, and we’re happy to say we’ve restocked and have them again in the store.
Know a dog or cat lover?
They might need a pair of socks or fingerless mitts made from Opal’s latest collection— Cats and Dogs.
Looking for gorgeous?
You'll find it in Wonderland Tweed!
What are you gifting?
Every reader needs a cozy spot, a book, and a book pillow!
A book pillow is the perfect place to keep a book or an ereader handy until it’s time to curl up and read.
Do you see them?
They're watching you!
All those unfinished projects----
Join us for UFO this year!
This is your chance to complete unfinished objects or create new 2023 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.
At the end of the year, you'll feel so good with all those FOs!
*First 2023 UFO meeting - Thursday, January 19th
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.
