02/11/21 Twisted Ewe Weekly Newsletter

Posted by Chadwick G on

This week, we are SO grateful for the eye-popping window paint designed by Kellie Levesque! If you haven't seen her in stylish outfits rearranging our shop, you should know Kellie is our behind-the-scenes interior decorator and fashion consultant. 

Twice a year, Kellie helps us organize our photoshoots, by picking out models and creating outfits that accentuate our knitted and crocheted garments. Thank you, Fashion Kellie!  

Kellie painted our window display just in time for our We Love Ewe weekend at the shop! 

We certainly have a deep appreciation for everyone in our stitching community. We'd like to spread the love and gratitude to you with a 10% off store-wide discount and Spin the Swift throughout the weekend! 

The discount covers everything in-store and online (regular exceptions apply), and Spin the Swift is in-store only with a few huge discounts if you are lucky. 

In addition, Ruby Ewe is visiting this weekend! If you find her (our adorable mini sheep mascot) you will get 50% off a skein. 

We Love Ewe weekend starts on Friday 2/12 and runs through Monday the 15th. Hope to see EWE there.

Chicken Coop Dyeworks - Trunk Show

"When I started the business, I was outside in our tiny pasture by our chicken coop. We were putting the final touches on a new “coop” which is really the size of a tiny house. I was talking to my husband about a name for the business and he just threw out there “Chicken Coop Something.” I asked him why, Chicken Coop - what does that have to do with yarn? His response “It doesn’t but I like it.” I did, too. I named the company Chicken Coop Dyeworks because I knew that I would eventually be dyeing more than yarn." -Carol

Chicken Coop Dyeworks is a joy to have at the shop! Each line has coop related names like Hen, Quill, Yokes, Tail Feathers, Bantam, and Rooster. Chicken Coop comes from North Central Texas and will be in-store at the Twisted Ewe until February 17th!
