The Oil Center and Travis Technology Center are hosting a Meet Your Neighbor Poker Walk on Tuesday, October 6th. This event is designed for everyone to explore the shops in the Oil Center. Yarn Nook will remain open until 6:30pm, so come by to knit, pickup some supplies, or to participate in the Poker Walk. (Note: We will still have Sit & Stitch on Wednesday night as well!)

Happy Halloween! In order to celebrate Halloween together, Yarn Nook will be hosting a Halloween Pajama Party on Wednesday, October 28th during Sit & Stitch. Join us in your PJs for a spooky fun night.

Join us for fiber and fun during Festival Acadiens et Creoles on Saturday, October 10th. We would love for you to stop by Yarn Nook on your way to this amazing festival in Girard Park (just 1 block from the shop)! We will have a tent setup outside the shop where you can relax, knit or crochet a bit and enjoy the great festival music.

The Fall Gathering Craft Show at the Cottage Shoppe is the place to be the weekend of October 24th and 25th. You are welcome to submit any of your knitted or crocheted items for sale in Yarn Nook's booth at the craft show ~ you will, of course, receive any money your items earn. Starting on Tuesday, October 20th, you are welcome to drop off your items at Yarn Nook ~ we will have price tags available for you to attach to your items. We hope that you will take the time to joins us at the craft show for a fun knit in public weekend as well. For a map to the Cottage Shoppe click here.

The Yarn Nookers are still working hard knitting and crocheting helmetliners for the troops in Afganistan! If you are willing to donate your time and expertise to this worthwhile project, please come by the shop to pick out your yarn today! Knitting a helmetliner is a great way to support our troops and a terrific opportunity to learn lots of new techniques! Please note that we have tweaked the pattern instructions as per suggestions from military personnel, so please take the time to get our revised instructions from Kim.

Of course, you are all also invited to our regular Wednesday Night Sit & Stitch every week 6pm - 8pm.
