black friday sale


Friday, November 29th, 2019

Between 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm ONLY!

(PK Discount does NOT apply.)

Join us on Black Friday to get some smokin deals on all our yarns and needles. Yeah, I know, the shop is a bit small and you may even have to line up to get to what you want, but let’s face it, that’s what makes a great sale great!

If you haven’t seen our new yarns this is a great time to catch up on what we’ve got in the shop. Christmas is just around the corner and there is still time to grab  that great yarn to make some wrist warmers, a cowl or hat for that special person in your life.


Don’t forget every Tuesday the women are gathering at the shop for the drop-in. This is a free evening for you to get out in the evening and have some fun with some knitting sisters. Everyone needs knitting sisters! Even if you’re a beginner, someone there will help you through the process and give you some knitting advice. Bring along whatever you’re working on or you can get what you need at the shop.

See you Friday!

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless you all!
