We're Moving!!

I can't believe I'm saying this out loud, it kind of makes me panic a bit to think of what lies ahead, but it's true!  We're moving!!  It'll probably be in June, not sure of dates yet because a lot has to happen between now and then....  We'll be moving to Yamhill, it's going to be great! (once it's all done)

So we're having a BIG sale in the Stash Room, where nearly every yarn is $3  (three buck chuck!)  You can take advantage of it online too in the Closeouts section.  We're adding more yarns to it as we speak, and some of the new additions will appear in the Sale Yarns area of the website. 

I'll let you know when we know the dates we're moving.
