May Pub Knitting Report

The staff and I had fun at last Friday's Pub Knitting gathering. This is the first time I didn't have to un-knit everything. The Barley Mill staff was in the zone and kept us happy and full. It might be my imagination but I think everyone drank more than me. Winner of the pub knitting drawing was Angel Caldwell. Angel won the official Yarn Garden Pub Knitting project bag.

Next month we are back at the Barley Mill on Friday, June 25th. This date is correct, we moved our meeting back a week so the Barley Mill staff can get ready for their company picnic.

Mother's Day

May 9th, 2010

Yarn Garden usually has a big Mother’s Day sale but since we already have a substantial sale going on, this year Yarn Garden celebrated Mother’s Day by giving a gift to each of our Sunday shoppers. No advertising, no fanfare, just a little gift to acknowledge your importance to your family, friends, community and the planet. Good job mothers!
