The StoreNews

 New Yarns from Trendsetter!
What better way to spend your labor day weekend then by getting a jump on your fall knitting?! And we have just the yarns to get you started!
Royal Cashmere by Laines du Nord
If we could make you feel this through your screen we would! The only thing that makes cashmere even better is when it's a chainette. The soft, lightness of this yarn makes every ball feel like a cloud! You'll want this around you all year round in a pattern like the Cozy Ascot Scarf or A Reversible Headband!
Visone by Laines du Nord
This yarn has a really unique texture that's going to take your knitting to a fun level! It's 66% Merino Wool and 34% nylon and has a great fuzziness to it!
A sweater in this yarn will make you want to hug yourself all day long! Something like the Light Sweater for you or Baby Blossom Sweater for a wee one! The fluffiness of this yarn is perfect for hiding little stitch mistakes too!
Super Color by Lana Grossa
This yarn gradients on it's own so sit back with an easy pattern and let it do the work! It's a aran weight chainette with a blend of wool and alpaca making it super soft and airy. A simple Gradient Scarf or this Gradient Poncho would be perfect to get your ready for chillier weather!
Tendenza by Lana Grossa
Boucle is back baby! If you're not familiar with what a boucle yarn is here's the skinny. Boucle is a yarn made of small loops of threads, giving it a loopy textured fabric when it's knit. It's super fun to knit with and, once again, is great at hiding boo-boo's. It's versatile in that it can be used on  large needle for a light cover up like the Boucle Cocoon or on smaller needles for a tighter fabric for simple fingerless gloves or the ribbing on a hat!
These yarns are in the store, ready for labor day weekend as your newest project! Be sure to call or stop by get them before the holiday!

Annie's Weekly Exclusive!!

This week our entire stock of Kenzie are 10% off!!  

This yarn is what we would call a "light" worsted. It's a great in-between for projects asking for a DK or Worsted weight yarn, making it very versatile. As always, you'll want to check your gauge first!

 

We found a little inspiration in the latest Vogue Knitting Magazine with the cutest Fair Isle Cowl!

This yarn is perfect and the color opportunities are endless!

We also found these fabulous ravelry patterns that we think would be great in Kenzie!

 

Stop by the store today to get some of this great yarn!

MaggiKnits Weekend 
We are sad to say that the MaggiKnits weekend has been cancelled due to lack of interest. We are hoping to schedule it for another time that will be better for Maggie and our customers.
We're sorry for any inconvenience this causes. If you have paid a deposit for any part of the weekend we will issue you a refund or store credit.
Have a great weekend!

 Ancient Arts Yarn
When we saw this yarn at TNNA we knew we had to bring it into the store! This is a hand-dyed sock yarn that comes in some truly unique colors. Some are a combination of beautiful colors to make great blends and others have a special twist!
A few of their yarns are dyed to mimic different dog and cat breeds!! From Calicos to Dalmatians to German Shepherds! I mean, why wouldn't you want to have a pair of socks or knitted hat that looks just like your pet?!
Not only will you match your dear pet but you will also feel good about purchasing this yarn. A portion of the proceeds from these particular colorways goes towards animal shelters! So sweet!
So be sure to come to the store to pick out some yarn for your next project that you and your pet will love!

Embroidery Class!
We know that a number of you are interested in embroidery so we have a unique opportunity for those of you wanting to learn or take your skills to a higher level.

We are teaming up with Edward Tung and his embroidery school, Ecole Broderies de Luxe, to offer a viewing and then a class on his haute couture embroidery!

Next Thursday, July 14th, Edward will be in the store from 5-8 doing a demonstration on the skills and techniques he uses to create one of a kind embroidery pieces. He will also be available to answer questions about the classes available through his school as well as a 1-day class at Annie and Company!
Edward was trained in Paris at the best embroidery schools and went on to do work for some of the top fashion houses there. Some of his work is currently on display at the Met for the Manus x Machina exhibit. Before leaving Paris he was able to reach out to design suppliers and acquire a wide range of materials that he now incorporates in his classes.
We are very excited to join efforts with Edward and bring something new to you! These embroidery skills can easily be joined with your knitting or needlepoint work in a beautiful marriage of craftiness! We hope you'll join us next Thursday to see how Edward works and learn more about this opportunity!
