 The end of summer is near, but the weather has been absolutely amazing!  There are many more warm days ahead to enjoy and cherish.

Fall is coming and with it lots of ideas for new knitting and stitching projects. 
We have so many new yarns and stitching charts in the shop for fall.  Too many to show on one page, but here is a taste of what has just arrived in the store.  Now is the time to get your projects lined up and started for fall and winter holiday gift giving!
