The Wooden Needle Newsletter - June 2023

Newsletter #34

June 2023

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.

We’re jumping for joy— June is here!

What’s happening?

It’s almost time for Main Street Festival!

  • Vendors!

  • Music!

  • Food! 

  • Fiber!

  • Fun!

Main Street Festival will be here on June 9th and 10th.

That weekend is also World Wide Knit in Public Day, so bring your knitting, find a chair in the TWN purple tent, and join us!

Got a spinning wheel? 

Bring it!

We’ll be spinning, too!

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 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.


  • June/July - blanket (variety of stitch patterns) or small project bag (increases and decreases)

  • Aug/Sept - shawl (i-cord edging and colorwork)

  • Oct/Nov - cardigan (brioche-tuck) or cowl (colorwork)

  • Dec - wool applique  (intro to wool work) or cowl/bandana (lace and holding two yarns together)

  • Jan/Feb - cardigan (steeking)

  • Mar/Apr - shawl (slipped stitches and colorwork)

  • May - socks (toe up or cuff down, one at a time or two at a time)

Questions? Just give us a call!

Come to Sit & Stitch!

Do you like to knit? Crochet? Embroider? Something else? 

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

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

For Sit & Stitch, your crafting materials need not have been purchased from TWN. 

Bring your project, and come craft with us!

We’ll meet on Thursday evenings from 5:00ish until 7:00ish.

Join the Trenton Sockettes!

Who needs the New York City Rockettes?

We’ve got the Trenton Sockettes!

If you like to knit socks— whether it’s your first or fiftieth pair— join us on Friday afternoons from 2:00 until 5:00.

Want to try toe up? Cuff down? A new pattern?

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


What’s new?

We love cute project bags, and we’ve decided you can’t have too many!

How about a Meadow Sheep bag from Lantern Moon?

We get excited each month to see the new colorways from Emma's Yarn and Madelinetosh. 


Bandelier! Fire Island! Oregon Caves! Tallgrass Prairie!

It’s always a treat when we receive the new National Park colorways from Knitted Wit.

What are you gifting?

For that friend going on a trip, gift them with a Retreat tote. 

It’s perfect for the pool, the beach, or the ballfield.

What’s the UFO number for this month?

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. 


June - #2 (You work on this number until our next meeting.)


Just think! At the end of the year, you'll feel so good with all those FOs!


*Next UFO meeting - Thursday, June 15th


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. 

Hmmm. . . because of a certain furry friend, Super Stitcher Sam hasn’t been able to do much cross stitching lately. 

Who ya gonna shawl? Bookish Beverly is knitting a shawl for someone she loves that happens to be a Ghostbusters fan.

Sparkle Girl Debbie is ready for warmer weather.
Look at those flowers!

Boss Lady Gayla is the best!
She is knitting a cute pair of socks for a little Sunday School friend.

Needle Notes

Hello, everyone!  

We hope for lots of reasons to see many of you at the Trenton Main Street Festival, but also for World Wide Knit in Public Day. Bring your knitting needles with a project on them and join us in the purple tent. If you have a spinning wheel, you can bring that as well. There will be lots to eat and buy, and lots of things to do and see, so come on out and have some fun!  

When you stop by TWN, don’t forget to sign up for our giveaway. 

We’ll see you at the festival!

Take care,


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!
