Dear Fiber Friends,
What a beautiful week so far in the Treasure Valley! Yesterday, I spotted the first crocus of the year at my local community garden. As one of the first flowers to pop up, crocuses are a sign of hope and joy.
All of these spring feelings have inspired me today to send out some cheerful "good morning" texts to all my friends and family. A bright message in the morning is a nice way to start the day.
In this email, I'll cover some upcoming classes and events, including the Yarn Buy Back, and a link to a blog post I wrote last year on the History of Crochet, because, March is National Crochet Month!
This post talks about crochet in ancient times, during the Irish Potato Famine, 1900s crochet in North American, and modern crochet styles.
This post is just the start of National Crochet Month. Next week, we'll look at new and popular crochet designers in the stitching community!
Yarn Buy Back - this Saturday
My vintage red storage cooler is getting a little too stuffed with yarn... It may be time to do some spring-stash cleaning!
Bring us your skeins, balls, or scrap yarn that you no longer want, on Saturday, March 6th from 11-5pm. We'll weigh the yarn, and give you back 5 Ewe Bucks to use in-store!
We'll accept any kind of yarn, fiber/roving! You can read a little more about our process online.
Also this Saturday is our Submission Deadline for the Warmth of Fiber Contest! Please submit your projects by 5pm at the Twisted Ewe. Voting will take place next week, with winners announced on the 13th.
That's all for the Weekly Twisted Update! Hope you all get a change to soak up the spring sun, and maybe bring your stitching outside☀️
Love Natalia and the Twisted Staff
