(ok, this picture doesn’t really have anything to do with the post, but it’s pretty and looks summery! On to the real post)

The official start of summer is just about a week away (June 20 for us US folks) and just because it’s hot outside doesn’t mean we don’t have lots of yarn inspired play to take your right into fall. The new newsletter is out so you should be seeing that in your mail soon, or you can stop by the store and pick one up. Remember, this is our last newsletter sent by old fashioned mail. We are greening up and moving to a more flexible and paper saving e-mail format. Be sure to sign up on the Knitterly homepage to get the store’s class schedule, announcements and notice of special events and sales.

Here are some of the highlights for July, August and September:

Because it was just so much fun last year, Knitterly and Muench Yarns are again partnering to have a blast of a warehouse sale July 19th and 20th. Fill out your stash, find some outrageous bargains and grab those odds and ends you will not find again.

Third Thursday is staring as regular monthly event. Every third Thursday of the month there will be some sort of one day sale. For July it is 30% off of alpaca on the 17th. Want advanced notice of the Third Thursday sales? Sign up for the newsletter and it will come right to you. (I don’t mean to be laboring the e-mail sign up, but I really don’t want to you miss knowing about yarn deals. I know how I feel when I find out I am a day late in getting the good stuff! Avoid unnecessary sadness, sign up.)

Elemental Affects will be with us August 7,8 and 9 for a Fiber Fandango! This has to be fun because anything a enjoyable to say as “Fiber Fandango” can’t be any less than a total party. Learn all about Fair Isle, felting and dyeing! Follow the links and get more information on what is sure to be a livley and extremely educational fiber time.

September brings us Debbie Abrahams with a workshop on intarsia on the 6th and professional finishing techniques on the 7th. I know September may seem a while away, but this is a sure to sell out event, so you may want to reserve your space very soon.

There is lots more and I will be giving you more info on all of it as time gets closer, but for now, here are some goodies to get you planning a summer that is shaping up to be full of good deals and new skills!
