Handmaiden Meet & Greet and Yarn Tasting

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Thanks to everyone who came to our Handmaiden Meet & Greet and Yarn Tasting! We had a fabulous afternoon of sampling yarns and talking fibre and colour. A very special thanks to Jana from Handmaiden for joining us here on a Sunday afternoon and sharing her beautiful yarn with us.
Lots of great deals on Handmaiden yarns.
The Fleece Artist side of the Yarn Tasting.
It was wonderful to see so many people at the shop on a sunny Sunday!
Each cup in the Yarn Tasting had a small ball of Handmaiden or Fleece Artist yarn and needles in it for customers to sample knit with.
Many yarns were sold by the 100g to make for excellent savings.
