DCF 1.0

Knit One, Stitch Too was opened in July 2001 by Betsy Weber to offer high quality supplies, accessories, and instruction to those interested in knitting, needlepointing, crocheting, and other needlearts. Over the years we have grown into a community of lively-minded needleartists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds who enjoy sharing our love of needle work. You’re always welcome to come in and see what’s new, get help with your project, or just sit and relax with your needles for a while. We love having visitors!

We are a full service store so we also offer finishing of knitted, crocheted, and needlepoint items, or we will work the entire item for you. Our Christmas deadline for finishing is October 1 every year. We repair hand made items, and are always happy to provide estimates on repairs or teach you how to make repairs yourself.

 

 

JULY GREETINGS!

IT’S HERE!  FINALLY!!  AT LAST!!!  Are you on the edge of your chair yet?  IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY – we will be 19 on July 2.  I have to tell you that I don’t quite believe it.  I was thinking we might go 5 or 6 years when we opened & it didn’t work out like that.  After spending almost two months at home during the recent shutdown, I know I’m not ready for retirement, so there will be more birthdays.  But first we have to celebrate this one.

Our BIRTHDAY SALE starts on June 29th and goes through July 11th.  Of course there will be goodies and a really good cake.  I know it’s good because I knitted it myself.  We’ll have door prizes every day and a major one on the final day of the sale.  EVERYTHING WILL BE ON SALE!  Discounts will range from 10% to 70%.  There will be surprises, and fun, and did I mention, great prices?  You’re going to have to trust me since I’m not going to give away the surprises in this newsletter.  If you used up some of your stash during the lockdown, this is the time to replenish it.

We will have one extra special surprise from Skacel.  They have started designating a color of the year and this year for their first color they have chosen our store TEAL!  They have new yarns (and some old ones) in it, along with other great colors.  This year’s limited edition pin and special patterns will be in a discount package during the sale that will save you even more.

What’s new?  We just got a big box from Plymouth with wonderful new yarns.  Nako Denim is a soft worsted weight cotton and acrylic blend in lots of solid colors that’s great for any project.  Sea Island Cotton is another worsted weight yarn that’s wonderful heathered tones.  It’s a blend of organic pima cotton and fine merino and it feels like velvet.  It’s a chainette construction so it’s very light weight.  I can’t wait to make a sweater with it – heavenly!  I’m already knitting a shawl with Tussah Kissed.  This is a DK blend of alpaca, linen, and Tussah silk.  It has a fabulous drape and a lovely hand and is going to get rave reviews from everyone.

Our samples of the new ADDI interchangeable Square needles are here and they are everything we thought they would be!  Come in & try them, and you’ll be sold.  I have sets ordered along with individual tips, and we’re taking preorders now.

We are complying with the orders for everyone to wear face coverings, so please bring your face mask when you come in.  We’re also sanitizing everything after every customer, so we can all stay as safe as possible.  We’re still happy to provide you with mail or curb service if you like.  Stay well and keep your needles moving!

Betsy
