Confusing Weather

February 21st, 2014

Rochester Community Schools are closed today… However, since we didn’t get a large amount of snow that caused the closure, Skeins will be OPEN today.  The truth is that we’ve just gotten way too much new yarn in and we have to get it all processed.  Come on down, visit us, and check out all the new goodies!  Yarns are arriving pretty much daily at this point.  Watch your weekend email from us for a list of drop-in classes next week and a full description of the new stuff.  In the meantime, don’t forget that Laura is doing a drop-in today from noon until 2pm, and Jen has one tomorrow morning from 10am until noon.  See you soon!

New Yarn! TONS of it!

August 14th, 2013

You won’t even believe the disaster that is the back of the store right now. There’s new yarn EVERYWHERE!!! First, we stocked up on Vintage, Vintage Chunky, and Weekend DK! There are several new yarns, too. We brought in some “ladder” yarns and some sparkly self-ruffling scarf yarns (think skirts for the little ones). We also brought in Lustra (the sheen on this worsted weight, single-ply yarn is AMAZING!) from Berroco, Jawoll Magic (a very long self-striping sock weight that’s oh-so-soft!) from Lang, and some Reclaimed Cashmere from Island Yarns (very limited run, colors will always come in different so no special orders - sorry!). There are bags of yarn everywhere!!! Signed up for the retreat in October? Don’t forget that tomorrow is the LAST DAY for payments! Everything must be in by the time we close. That’s a great excuse to stop in and see all the new stuff and find a new fall project.

Come Celebrate Your Birthday!

June 18th, 2012
Have you ever had one of those days when you just kinda wish it was your birthday (without the getting older part, of course) and everyone would be nice to you for a day?
This week, you should celebrate a birthday.  Personally, I’ll celebrate my 21st.  Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know.  ANYWAY…
Come into Skeins any time this week and tell us you’re celebrating a birthday.  To help you celebrate, we’ll give you the birthday discount of 20% off an entire purchase of in-stock yarn.
We don’t want to encourage dishonesty, so let’s not pretend it really is your birthday (unless it is, of course!).  Let’s just be honest and say you’re celebrating one.  We won’t ask any further questions…  But you have to be sure you tell us you’re celebrating a birthday - this sale isn’t an automatic discount.  I know… Tough crowd.  At least we’re not asking you to sing “Happy Birthday” for a discount!  Smile emoticon
Same policies apply as always… Sale items are final sale, discounts can’t be combined, sale is on in-stock yarn only, blah blah blah.. You know the drill.  The birthday celebration runs June 19th - 23rd, 2012, only.  We’re sorry - no exceptions.  See you soon!   - Lori
