The Wooden Needle Newsletter - July 2023

Newsletter #35

July 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.

Let’s wave that flag and celebrate!

Happy 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 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.



  • 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!

***There’s been a schedule change!***

Come to Sit & Stitch on Third Thursday! 

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

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

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 the Third Thursday of each month 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?

Orange sherbet? Pink lemonade? Italian ice?

Add the July ‘23 Emma’s Yarn colorway to April and June for a fun combination.

Brighten someone’s day with Ken-ergy— the July colorway from Madelintosh.

Ice Age? San Juan Island? Gila Cliff Dwellings? Tuskegee Airmen?

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

What are you gifting?

July is a great time to gift a tote in red, white, and blue.

Gift one to a friend and get one for yourself.

What’s the UFO number for this month?

Do you see them?

They're watching you!

All those unfinished projects----


It’s never too late to join us for UFO!

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. 

July - #10 (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, July 20th


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. 

Debra made a scarf out of mini skeins. Too cute!

Not one bag, but two!

Her cute gnome is a gift, but we won’t tell!

Needle Notes

Hello, everyone!  

It’s hot in our part of the world, but we never think it’s too hot for crafting. When the temperature is on the rise, you might want to think about using cotton yarn in knitting and crocheting projects. Choose a project that’s smaller in size, such as socks or a hat. At TWN, we carry wool applique and embroidery projects, which also make great hot weather crafting.

Whatever you choose to do, enjoy it! 

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!
