The Raging Wool Yarn Shop

Here in beautiful Sunrise, Florida spring is quickly being replaced by the heat of summer, which is sure to arrive sooner than it's official first day, June 21st. We've been preparing for both by stocking up on our Spring & Summer yarns! There's cottons, linens and blends of both. The colors range from warm neutrals to cool pastels to vibrant florals, which will complement any project.

I'm sure you've noticed how fantastic the store has been looking lately. This is due in large part to our newest team member, the amazing Rosemary. We got to know her first as a customer and from there we knew she'd be a great fit! She's an experienced crocheter and is on her way to becoming an accomplished knitter. She's the proud mother of three and grandmother of two with a new 
grandbaby on the way. When you see Rosemary make sure to let her know how great the shop looks!
Rosemary is keeping the shop in perfect order!

Alice is off to TNNA in Indianapolis this week to check out all the new yarns, needles and accessories! As always she'll be learning awesome techniques which means we'll be offering cool new classes. While she's away Rosemary & Jen will be holding down the fort, so the shop will be 
in great hands!

Mother's Day is fast approaching and we're sure a Raging Wool Gift Card would make a perfect gift for any fiber artist. We'll be having refreshments & snacks at the shop Sunday May 11th, so stop by and join us!

In today's update, you'll find:

Boston Marathon Scarf Project!
We wanted to send out a huge Thank You to all of you who participated in this awesome project!  Our South Florida customers knitted, weaved or crocheted at least 2 dozen handmade scarves that we sent to Old South Church in Boston. It was a wonderful and moving privilege to contribute to the healing, love and remembrance for the Boston Marathon 2014 runners, families and participants, as well as the "Boston Strong" citizens across New England. Alice posted a fantastic blog highlighting the recipients who were so grateful for the scarves that we made for them they took the time to let us know, read more here!
