Woolen Boon Trunk Show
Saturday, 3/30 from 11 am to 4 pm 

Woolen Boon is a wife and husband independent dye team out of Austin. They began in the Spring of 2016 with a little dream and a heck of a lot of hope – and what colors have come out of their dreams!

We are excited to introduce Woolen Boon’s yarns to all of you, and what fun to get to know Sonya and Ryan. They have shared that they are loading up on great yarns for the trunk show. So, check your pattern wish list and come on up this coming Saturday.

Zecca Needlepoint Trunk Show

We are excited for the arrival of Zecca’s trunk show in April. Zecca’s colors and energy definitely appeal to my eyes and heart.   We are not yet positive on the date of arrival of the trunk show – but will definitely post messages on Facebook and Instagram – as well as our website when they arrive. Until then – take a look at their website and smile!

Introduction to Brioche and Tuck Stitch
Wednesday, 4/17 from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm 

Brioche and tuck stitches have been on our bucket list for some time, and we are delighted to have Kim Hayes coming from the DFW area to teach us. She has designed a great cowl for us to learn on – just add about 100 grams of two colors of DK weight yarn and US5 and US7 16″ circular needles! Let’s get brioching!

The cost of the class is $100 – and includes your pattern and the instruction for the day. (We will also surely have some snacks!)   There are limited spaces – so give us a holler at 830.995.5539 to reserve your spot. More details here.
