October Sale

This month we are making it easy for you to add to your stash or treat yourself to something you have had your eye on in the shop ~ October's sale is $10 off your purchase of $50 or more on any regular priced items! We have also added many yarns to the 50% off section in the shop ~ stop by soon for best selection.

Fall Gathering Craft Show at the Cottage Shoppe

The Fall Gathering Craft Show at the Cottage Shoppe is the place to be the weekend of October 23rd and 24th, 10am - 4pm. 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. Beginning Tuesday, October 19th, you may begin dropping off items at the shop to be included in the show ~ we will provide price tags for you to attach to your items. We hope that you will take the time to join us at the craft show for a fun knit in public weekend as well ~ bring your current project and a lawn chair! Map to the Cottage Shop here.
