Thread, Books, Spin Together, and Pre-Orders Galore!
It's Here!Our big box from Japan arrived. If you pre-ordered anything from this shipment, it is in the mail. Plus we have lots of fun new things! We have new tatting books, an Irish crochet book, sashiko kits, crochet and tatting thread, sashiko thread, tatting picot combs, and more!!!
Some things sold so quickly that I moved them to pre-order yesterday. So if you missed out on a new item, have no fear. I am putting in another Japanese order. :)
Join us for Spin Together
There is still time to join team BlackSheep Voyagers at www.spintogether.org so if you are a spinner and want to join in the fun, you have until Sept. 30! The competition starts Oct. 2 at noon your time and ends at noon on Oct. 9. It's a "spin as much as you can" week and I'm so excited to have a team for BlackSheep this year!
More Books to Pre-Order
There are SO MANY amazing books releasing this year and we just can't wait to see them all in-person. Have you checked out the Pre-Order Books section on the website recently? We're ordering all kinds of books for the shop. So head on over and find a few for your bookshelf. Whether you are looking for crochet, spinning, knitting, or tatting we are bringing in the books!
Star Map Stitch-A-LongJoin Kelli for a Kiriki Press Constellation Series: Star Map Stitch-A-long. Whew. For short we're calling it the Star Map SAL. On Mondays in September (and possibly October) we will stitch-a-long together live on our Facebook page. (If you miss a video, Kelli posts them to YouTube after. So go click that subscribe button to make sure you don't miss a video.) Kiriki shipped the kits, so we'll be sending them out to our pre-ordered customers as soon as they arrive. We only ordered 2 extra kits, so snag one quickly if you want it!
