We have a batch of Think Pink and a small batch of Midnight that Tom - and only Tom - has declared "seconds!"
Lance can't even believe it.
It's wet, raw, and icy here. And gray. Very gray. We needed a color infusion and it came in the form of PINK needles! The 5 inch tips are here. The 3.5 inch tips should be done soon!
This week marks our 25th wedding anniversary! To celebrate, we opted out of the silver platter and for Silver Northern Light™ needles instead! (Who wants a platter when they can have new knitting needles?)
We're home and have been re-stocking the store. There are needles up in a number of categories - Black Nickel, Midnight, Blue, and some seconds in Batik and Sugar Maple. The hooks on hand have been updated as well as the Heavy Metal™ needles - we have HM's in all sizes and lengths right now!
We are closed until February 21, 2017, for the funeral of Linda's mother. Thank you to all who have sent condolences! We appreciate your kindness and understanding at this time.
Happy New Year!
It's been a while since we have sent out a newsletter. 2016 was . . . interesting. And it's gone, sent to the history department. We have a new year to look forward to and a lot we have been working on here.
In May, we moved our website to a new platform that gave us more flexibility and functionality. We can now track inventory on site, which has allowed us to spend this past season offering up our "seconds" in the Northern Light™ series, clear out a bevy of wood needles we have found (there are more of those to come!), and move to an on-hand means of selling. If it is on the site and you can place an order for it, it means we have the items in stock and ready to go!
It is Giving Tuesday. All sales today - 100 % - will be donated to our local food shelf, the Chester-Andover Family Center. Whether you need a cable or two or a full set of needles, all of the monies spent today will be given to CAFC to help local families in need.
After encountering technical glitches recently, we have some cleaning up to do on orders from past offerings. To that end, we are going to continue to offer Turnings on Sunday evenings and give ourselves a little wiggle room in the process by shipping by the end of each week. Orders placed on Sunday evenings will be entered on Monday and Tuesday and shipped by the end of the week. Thank you!
