In This Issue

Happy Holidays from the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin! With the New Year fast approaching, mark your calendars for our annual inventory sale which we'll be having January 6, 7, 8 & 9, 2016. Look for our upcoming elert for more details!

During the winter months, we are offering Hire a Guide for Knitting or Crocheting where you decide the class subject, day, time and teacher. Some great winter projects are Liz's Thrummed Mittens or any of Cathy's needle-felting classes and/or her Ravelry Q&A class which teaches you the basics of using Ravelry. Thursdays are Get Unstuck Day at the shop, bring in a project you need a little (or a lot) of help with and we'll help you get unstuck for free! 

Enjoy the holidays and happy knitting and crocheting....

Joe's Puzzle of the Month

Everyone knows that both Christmas Day and New Year's Day always fall on the same day of the week. However, in 1939, the year of the outbreak of World War II, Christmas fell on a Monday and New Year's fell on a Sunday. Why?

The first person who emails back the correct answer will receive a certificate for 15% off of one item. Once the first correct answer comes in, we will post it in our Ravelry group.
