Black Friday & Small Business Saturday Sales!

November 24th, 2016
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
As the day of Turkey, family, football, and napping (usually as a result of too much turkey) comes to a close, it’s time for us to focus on the next couple of days at Skeins.
Really, we’d like to celebrate both Black Friday AND Small Business Saturday, so we’re going to run one big sale over both days, rather than different sales on each.  The sales are as follows:
10% off all bakery-style kits
20% off Berroco, Classic Elite, and Shepherd’s Wool (branded, not those they distribute) yarns
15% off all Bosom Buddy bags (those are the really cool knitting bags and handmade baskets)
35% off the original price on all sale yarn (and we’ve even put out more since Wednesday!)
Buy a $50 gift certificate, and we’ll make it $55
Buy a $100 gift certificate, and we’ll make it $115
(no loyal points on sale items, all sales are final, all sales are on in-stock items only, sales are while supplies last, does not apply to previously-purchased merchandise and/or gift certificates)
Happy Holidays from the entire team at Skeins On Main!  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Did you miss out on Shop Hop this weekend???

November 14th, 2016
Did you miss out on Shop Hop this weekend???  We sent out a newsletter announcing TONS of new stuff, and people have been calling and sending messages asking about what’ll happen to it now that the weekend is over.
So… What the heck – LET THE FUN CONTINUE!  While we can’t continue Shop Hop as a whole, we CAN continue it in our shop.  We’re going to leave everything out and in it’s place for at least a couple of days.  On Wednesday, we’ll have to start rehoming it (all the way to the shelves), but it’ll still be around.  We were giving away a free gift with a pre-tax purchase of $15 or more (sorry, class registrations don’t count), so we’ll also continue that until supplies are gone.
Come visit us, find out what all the buzz is about, and check out all the new things we have to offer.  The store is PACKED right now, and some of it won’t be offered again for a while (that’s how some hand-dyers work – we can only order a couple of times each year).  Be sure you don’t miss out!
If you purchased item(s) that need to be wound, please feel free to drop it(them) off.  The winder appears to be working again after Lori’s husband worked his magic on it, so we’ll wind it up and call you when it’s ready.

March 2nd, 2016

Wouldn’t it be a lot more fun to read about all the new spring yarns?  Unfortunately, they can’t arrive when we’re not there because of yet more snow….  But SOON!  In the meantime, here we go again…..

In accordance with our policy… Rochester Community Schools closed (again) due to snow, so we’ll at least be opening late today. The morning (9:30-11:30am) class with Melissa will be canceled and made up on Wednesday, April 6th. We’ll figure out the rest as soon as I hear what the roads are like up in Rochester. Updates will be posted here and on Facebook. We really hope to see you very soon!

Update:  The store will be opening at 11:30 this morning.  The afternoon and evening classes will be held as scheduled.  See you then!

Skeins will be closing at 7pm on Tuesday, March 1st, due to the snow.  Jen’s 7-9 class will be made up on Tuesday, April 5th.  Stay home, stay safe, and happy knitting!
