We Are Slowly Opening*
Oregon will soon enter stage 2 of opening back up. We are still cautiously staying apart but on nice days Tina has begun to meet with a few people at Central Park in Orenco Station. Weather permitting our Knit Groups can resume. Starting on Saturday Tina will be at Central Park with her crafting in tow to join up with others.
If it is warm enough but spitting a bit of rain we can hang under the gazebo on the south end of the park. If it is warm and sunny anywhere on the lawn or near the park benches is fine.
Bring your current crafting project, a chair and a beverage/snack to Central Park at Orenco Station on the following days/times:
First Wed of the month-1:00pm-3pm

2020 Slow Yarn Crawl
It's back! We are "couch crawling" with online purchases throughout the summer. Once things open up, you may still travel to the stores to receive your passport stamps. BlackSheep is even participating as a donor. We're having extra drawings for any purchases by crawlers during the Slow Yarn Crawl. For more info, check out our Events page at BlackSheep or go to the Slow Crawl website.
Keep track of your points and rewards online! Did you know you can create a login and check your points balance through the website? You can even redeem your rewards through the website. You earn $5 back for every $100 spent. We may have closed the physical store, but you still earn points and are able to redeem rewards on all purchases (whether from the website or a festival).
Go here to register. :)
