January 2024

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 New Year!


What’s happening?

Go to school with TWN!

If you’d like to learn (or relearn) how to knit or crochet, join us during Workshop Wednesdays or Third Thursday Sit & Stitch.

There is no charge for the class, but you will need to purchase your supplies from TWN.

Just give us a call and let us know you’re coming!


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 - SHAWLS READY TO WEAR! (i-cord edging and colorwork)
  • Oct/Nov - CARDIGANS TO WEAR! (brioche-tuck) or cowl (colorwork)
  • Dec - CANDLES SITTING PRETTY ON MATS! - wool applique (intro to wool work) 
  • Jan/Feb - YIKES! CUTTING OUR KNITTING! - 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 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!

Join us on the Third Thursday of each month from 5:00ish until 7:00ish.


Who needs the New York City Rockettes?

We’ve got the Trenton Sockettes!


Are you one of “those” people?

Do you enjoy knitting socks?

So do we!

And we’ve got a club for you!

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more info!



What’s new?

College students (and everyone else!) will love the Madelinetosh Hue of the Moment for January - Spicy Ramen!


Did you know we carry wide-back fabric? 

Check out some of our new colors and designs.



What are you gifting?

A Kennedy Wrap adds just the right amount of warmth and cozy to any outfit, and it makes a great gift!



What’s the UFO number for this month?

Do you see them?

They're watching you!

All those unfinished projects----

If you’re looking for a fun way to finish your WIPs or begin some new projects, this is the way to do it.

You begin by making a 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!


January - We’ll draw our first number on January 18th.

*Next UFO meeting - January 18, 2024


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. 


What can you get when you don’t use sparkly sock yarn to knit socks?

A beautiful shawl like the one knit by Angela!


Ann has become a prolific hat knitter.

These beauties were Christmas gifts!


Ellen completed her wool applique candle mat.

Doesn’t it look lovely?


Bookish Beverly had planned for the “Who Ya Gonna Shawl?” project to be a Christmas gift.

How about Valentine’s Day instead?


The queen of cross stitch in our world is Sparkle Girl Debbie.

A special someone got these cute ornaments for Christmas!


There’s been a lot of wool applique happening at TWN lately.

Boss Lady Gayla’s “Welcome to the North Pole” is going to be a beauty!
