Our last Baa Blog post was all about Birthday celebrations and the wonderful Giddy Yarns Pop Up shop. Today we have more news but first let us have a bit of a ‘Round-up'.
Our Birthday celebrations were a great success and I, like many others, was blown away by Helen’s (Giddy Yarns) beautiful self striping sock yarn and I may have broken my 'No More Stash' New Year resolution. Oops!
The Tombola raised £70 for the Stonehaven Alzheimers Thursday club and it sounds like all your pennies will be put to good use very soon!
So far this year we have had some fabulous workshops, take a peek below at just a few.
Inspired? There are plenty more classes available right now. We have returning workshop tutors Karie Westermann and Carol Meldrum and some ‘new to Baa’ tutors too….. Erin Beel (aka HennyPennyMakes) and Katherine Lymer (a regular Rowan tutor and tutor at 2019 EYF). Most classes are already online and others sit in the background patiently waiting for final detail. Ssh! I have a few secrets in the planning too!
And now for other news…… Baa has recently become official stockists of ChiaGoo needles. At the moment our range is small but will increase gradually as we replace our current stock. We have a selection of RED Lace Circulars, a premium fixed tip needle in surgical-grade stainless steel, with a flexible steel red coated cable which has NO memory. Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular, it doesn't rub off! They are also great for knitters who are sensitive to nickel. So far customer feed back has been pretty spot-on!
Our most popular lines of the KnitPro Symfonie, Zing and Basix range will continue to be available in store or by special order.
And finally, to complete our Round-Up, did you know...
Saturday 27th April is Local Yarn Store Day!
Here at Baa we are celebrating with the generous help of PomPom Publishing. On Saturday 27th April, 2019 our first 20 customers to purchase any Pom Pom Quarterly magazine or Pom Pom publication will receive a Postcard containing a Ravelry coupon code. This coupon code entitles the holder to download every PomPom Quarterly Issue from 1-21!
The current RRP for PomPom Quarterly is £12.50 so this is a massive saving!
A PomPom publishing purchase is essential to qualify for this offer. It is only available in store on Saturday 27th April, 2019, 10:30am - 5:30pm. We have 20 coupon codes. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis. When they are gone….. They are gone!
We have plenty off PomPom titles available to choose from so there is sure to be something you fancy. You will find a small selection of titles below.
Alongside this amazing offer and in keeping with the publications theme on Saturday 27th April only we shall be offering 10% discount on all our books (Including PomPom publications - once the coupons have run out.) and 20% off Haberdashery (excluding the ChiaGoo needle range).
Will I see you on Saturday?
