The Wooden Needle Newsletter - February 2024

Newsletter #42

February 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 Valentine’s Day!


What’s happening?

We’re beginning Friday Forum!

Let’s get together for crafting on Friday afternoons from 2:00 until 5:00.

It will be a time to get help with a current project, discuss ideas for future projects, and simply enjoy the company of like-minded folks.

Knit? Crochet? Wool applique? You choose what you’d like to do.

The only requirement for Friday Forum is that your project materials were purchased at TWN.

Come join us!



Go to school with TWN!

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

If you’d like to learn (or relearn) how to knit, join us on Third Thursday Sit & Stitch or Friday Forum.

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.

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.


What’s new?

It’s time for Stupid Cupid— the Madelinetosh Hue of the Moment for February!


This February colorway from Emma’s yarn is bright and beautiful!


Here are a couple of our new cubbies!

Remember— personalization is included in the purchase price at TWN.



What are you gifting?

Valentine’s Day towels, mitts, and pinchers make great gifts!



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 - #6 (#8 is the floater this year)

*Next UFO meeting - February 15, 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. 


Glyndan is going to be stylishly cozy in her cute cowl.


It’s all about being warm right now, and Barb is doing it in her pretty pink fingerless mitts.


We love it when young people show off their crafty skills!

Doesn’t Arria’s scarf look great?


Cozy toes are in Ellen’s future with these fun socks.


We really do work on Workshop Wednesdays!

Saroja and Jacq are enjoying their Reading Cardigans.


Can you wear a wrap two ways?
You can if you’re like Angela and knit the lovely Lake of the Woods.


It's finished!

Bookish Beverly's "Who Ya Gonna Shawl?" didn't make it as a Christmas gift, but at least it got finished before Easter.


Sparkle Girl Debbie has been on a roll.

Look at all the cross stitch projects she’s finished!


Someone (who will remain anonymous but has the initials BB) had a stack of blocks from last year’s birthday block project.

For someone’s birthday this year, Boss Lady Gayla kindly put them together and created a beautiful quilt.


Needle Notes

Hello, everyone— 

We’ve had some bitter cold and icy days in our part of the world, but it’s not been so bad recently. The one good thing we can say about bad weather is that it’s perfect crafting weather! It’s a great time to finish up those WIPS and begin new projects. If you’re ready to begin a new project, stop by TWN or check out our website. Questions? Give us a call!

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!
