Anniversary Sale and Newsletter
What a great time at the Kiwi Kanga KAL/CAL
I had a great time hosting he Kiwi Kanga KAL last month - it was a real pleasure all around. Of course it helped that the weather was great, the company fantastic and the creations using Kiwi and Aussie products were amazing.
The highlight for me was seeing everyone from first time knitters through to published designers, sharing stories and enjoying each others company.
I was inspired by the two days and am planning on hosting more events and courses this year - and will keep you all posted.
Its my first year in business - so it's time for a MASSIVE sale
Here's a quick shout out to you, my lovely customers and crafty people, to say Huge thanks for your custom and loyal support.
I'm always striving to improve my yarn and accessories offerings for you and want to make some more needed space in the store (or the "Touch Lab" as I like to think of it) as well as the stockroom. Visitors to the store know of my "hallway of shame" which has all the overflow boxes and baskets of yarn. I prefer to think of it as "Stash Architecture"!
So, as a heartfelt Thank You, please Click Shop the First Anniversary Celebration SALE here to find the heavily reduced range of yarns, paper patterns and bits & bobs to create some space for some exciting new products over the next few months.
New in store
Also, just in case you haven't dropped by for a while, we have some lovely Arne & Carlos and other REGIA self patterned sock yarns in. People wanted socks that could stand up to the tumble dryer, so I sourced these durable REGIA yarns to complement the good range of sock yarns I have.
Theres a lot of new items in store, but check out
- the Woven's new Smooth range of fine and DK high twist New Zealand luxury yarns
- the amazing Addi CrasyTrio flexible circular knitting needles,
- Wendy Purity, an Aran weight merino/cotton blend with a chainette texture for big boyfriend sweaters with a light airy feel
- Misti Alpaca's beautiful gradient Sock yarn. It comes in 5 jewel toned colours which like all those sock yarns can do double duty in any of the fingering/ 4ply weight shawls or garments.
