New at Ewe To You

Old Stash- New Stash It is time to trade up. Bring your 'laying around the house' stash to Ewe To You Yarns in Grand Blanc and let us display it and offer it for sale on Saturday and Sunday, Sept 19 and 20. We will give you store credit for everything that sells. You could be shopping for free for this fall at Ewe to You. Think socks with Zauberball, Trekking, or Tye Dye from Knit One Crochet Too. Interested in a bigger project? How about Merino Superlite. This great little knitted rather than plied yarn is chunky and soft. Knit Scene Magazine has a very nice Motorbike Jacket that really shows off this yarn. Maybe you would like a shawl pin in twisted exotic wood or one with a carved bone charm that hangs from the top. Whatever your pleasure you know you are going to feel good about re-organizing and re-purposing your stash.

Drop off your goodies to Ewe To You Yarns in Grand Blanc any time, regular store hours, from Sept 1st through Sept 15. Make sure your stash is labeled with your initials, consecutive numbers if you have more than one and your price. A bag for items that you want to sell as a group would be nice too. Then come back on Sept 19 and 20 to see what else is being re-organized. Anything knit or crochet related is welcome. I have already been checking out the rich plum colored Blue Sky Alpaca. Yehaa.

Thanks to art fair shoppers

Thanks to all who stopped by the Ewe to You Yarns booth at the Grand Blanc Art Fair on Sunday. The weather was perfect for this outdoor event in Michigan on Sunday. Saturday was a wash but Sunday gave us some heat, lots of sunshine and a venue for creative innovation. go artists go. And now...Back to the Bricks....

Are you feeling a little over whelmed by your stash? We are sponsoring a new charity this fall. Use some of your stash and knit or crochet hats, scarves or mittens in any size. Bring them into the shop to be picked up by The United Way. You can reduce your yarn supply and help keep Michiganders warm this winter. There is not much better than a '2 for 1'.

Anyone planning to attend the Allegan Fiber Festival this weekend?

Hello fiber artists,

We are trying a new tack this year and will be manning or woman-ing a booth at the Grand Blanc Art Fair in Physicians Park this week end Aug 8th and 9th. Look for us and stop by to chat. We will be having periodic spinning demonstrations and of course showing some yarn, patterns and local artist's accessories. The projects bags and pouches made by a Flushing artist are especially nice. You go Cherry. Come watch a local spinner turn wool into yarn, this process still fascinates me, and don't I wish I had the patience for this. Help support Grand Blanc and the local businesses at this community event.

Our traditional Knitting 911 help session on Saturday will be cancelled at Ewe to You Yarns as we will be at the Art Fair. Hold those questions and small problems for Wednesday's 911 at 2pm. More later, after the fact

Whats Going On

Hey Ladies,

Jess here. Just popping in to let you guys know whats going on around the store. Since we were missing a lot of our new books for the Easter Sale because we hadn't gotten them in yet, until this morning (hooray!) we have decided to extend the 20% off all books until the end of this week. So for all you guys who missed out on the sale, now is your chance to at least get in on the book action, which is better then no action if I do say so myself.

And for all you sock lovers out there, along with the book order, came 5 copies of Cookie A's new sock book, Sock Innovation (a wicked super hooray!!!). So get over here and get your copy for 20% off!! We also got in more Finishing Techniques and Knitters Handbook for anyone who has been waiting for them to arrive.

Sock Club: If your thinking of joining, you need to do it very soon. The first packages will be going out shortly. We have gotten our specially dyed yarn and our goodies, so dont wait any longer or you'll miss out on all the fun.

New Open Sock Class: We've started doing a new open 6 week sock class where you buy your seat for $80 (mind you its a 6 week class instead of 3 thats why the price is more) and you basically do any sock project (or projects) you want for 6 weeks. I hang out and help you out with whatever you need my help with. We thought this would be a great idea for those groups of people who really want to stick together but just aren't at the same point as everyone else, or want to do something different. So we decided to just have an open 6 week class where everyone can choose whatever sock project they want. Class starts this Wednesday from 4-6p for the next 6 weeks and it appears I have 2 seats left in it as of right now. So hurry and grab your seat if your interested. I will also set up time slots for other groups who want to stay together and do some other projects other then socks. This "Open" class is a new thing and can apply to anything.

We also just got in a whole bunch of new Eco friendly, organic cottons. So if thats your flavor, come check it out. They are quite nice and we have some good colors.

And an update on The Knit Kit. They were backoredered and have finally gotten their second batch in and our order should of gone out Thursday, along with Rowans Kidsilk Haze lace yarn. So look forward to those goodies as well.

February Lady Sweater

Saturday is the last day of the Easter Sale at Ewe to You Yarns in Grand Blanc. All books, all patterns, most Noro brand yarns, eco cottons and more are still on sale. Stock up for the summer. Hunt for a hidden egg and check for extra sale coupons inside it. Hope to see you there.

On a more topical note, I got in touch with and have heard back from Pamela Wynne. As you all know, she is the author of the revised February Sweater for women that has been so hot lately. She has graciously suggested the guidelines she would like to be followed when we use her pattern in a class. They are more than fair and very reasonable. Thank you Pamela.

You can find her pattern on Ravelry and on her website www.flintknits.com . It is a great pattern and a great teaching aid..and makes a great sweater. Thanks again Pamela.
