Fourth of July Shop Hours

Reminder: Yarn Nook will be closed on Saturday, July 3rd for the Fourth of July Holiday.

World-wide Knit In Public Day Celebration

On Sunday, June 27th, the Yarn Nookers will celebrate World-wide Knit In Public Day. We will be knitting and crocheting at CC's Community Coffee House in River Ranch from 1pm until 6pm. There are two CC's coffee houses in River Ranch ~ we will be at the one near the City Club and Cafe Roma. We hope you will join us and encourage your friends and family to do so as well. This will be a great opportunity for us to get together and share our knitting love with the public. In the past, our knit in public events have been a great success and have encouraged many people to begin knitting including many of our dear friends who are now fellow Yarn Nookers. Please come by and bring a project or two to work on ~ stay long enough to stitch just one row or to complete an entire project!

Paula, the manager of CC's, has been very helpful and is excited about us spending time at her shop on Knit In Public Day. She has generously offered anyone who brings in a printout of this post a 10% discount off their purchases during our Knit In Public event.

June Classes & Workshops

Because summer is so busy with kids home from school and vacations being planned, we thought that we would try something new for classes this month. We will be offering all classes at your leisure. If there is a particular project you would like help tackling or if there is a new technique you would like to learn, we would be glad to schedule an individual class for you at your convenience.

Would you like to take a knitting class along with your child? Mother and daughter or mother and son knitting classes are available at a special rate ~ call the shop for details.

Are you looking for something for your kiddos to do this summer? Give your child a gift of knitting skills they will love and be able to use all of their lives ~ we are offering individual or group knitting lessons for 7 to 16 year olds. Students will be taught the basics of knitting while developing motor skills, dexterity, concentration and mathematics skills. Call to schedule at your convenience.
