We have had lots of fun planning this month's classes! We are also "Spring Cleaning" and finding lots of items to put on clearance.
This week through May 15th, we are featuring a large group of Christmas fabric plus some other assorted prints priced 40% off or 60% off if you take what's left on the bolt! There is a one yard minimum cut if you don't want it all!
We are working on a sale for knitters which we will post on the blog as soon as we get the details worked out! Make sure you keep checking here for sales and other news plus lots of great pictures of finished projects! Pictures are located on our flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/knitonesmocktoo. We'd love to include your creations! Bring them to the shop for us to take a picture or email us your photo.
