July Update

Good Morning Everyone:

I am back from Alaska and ready to start many new projects.  Presently I am knitting an afghan for my granddaughter for Christmas and a couple of other Christmas presents as well.
As you all are probably aware October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Stitchy Women has vowed to help those who have been diagnosed with this cruel disease.  Please join us in knitting, crocheting or sewing, hats, scarves and knockers to be given to those in need.  This is a great way to use your stash.  I will offer a 25% discount off the original price of yarn to be used for this project.  I also have yarn discounted to 40% off original price that can also be used. Need help with patterns, go on the internet or stop in to the shop.  We are working on samples as we speak.  Sign up for this worthy cause now.
I have received a lot of new yarn that can be used for any project.  I am working on an afghan sample make out of Flutterby which is an extremely soft bulky yarn.  We also have swaddle which again is very soft and bulky.
Socks are popular this time of year because of their portability.  Come check out the vest patterns we have with a couple of samples as well.
We now have a Treasure Chest which consists of samples of yarn what we no longer carry and therefore willing to sell the finished products at discounted prices.
Stop in on a Thursday afternoon for social knit from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We are never sure how many will be here but all are invited.
We offer a layaway plan with a 25% down and 25% each of the next three weeks.  We accept VISA, Mastercard and Discover for your convenience.
I look forward to seeing you.

Happy Memorial Day to all:

First and foremost please note new e-mail address stitchywomen.poultney(at)gmail.com.  I have been having trouble with sending e-mails through Fairpoint and therefore am not sure you have received the last few that I sent.

Because I am traditional and would like to celebrate Memorial Day nearer to the traditional day I am offering a 20% discount off all non-sale yarn from May 27th , 28th, 29th, and 30th. This will include all the new yarn that I have received over the last couple of months.
Also, on June 6th, which is Town Wide Yard Sale Day in Poultney, I will be offering certain lots of yarn at $3.00 per skein.

Celebrate Spring with New Yarn!

Happy Spring Everyone.

Just a quick note to let you know the new yarns that I got yesterday, and next Wednesday another shipment is scheduled to arrive.

Received from Knitting Fever:  More colors in Seasons.  Replenished  Noro, Silk Garden and now added Noro Kureopatora.  (300 yards at a very reasonable price.)

Next week we have Baby Marble, Flutterby Chunky, Rustic Wool Aran, Marble, Bravo and Journey for Westminister.  I can hardly wait to see the new colors.

I will offer a Mystery Discount for anyone mentioning this newsletter.

Maple Fest Basket Sale!

Hi Everyone:

Must say that sunshine feels good even, if it is still on the cool side.

Saturday is MapleFest in Poultney with entertainment for all ages.  I will be having a 20% Bag Sale on all non-sale yarn and accessory items .  Williams Hardware, The Original Vermont Store and Discount Foods of Poultney will also be offering a Bag Sale.   There will be other specials as well as entertainment including tours of Sugar Houses.

I received a shipment of new yarn from Cascade last Friday, this also is eligible for the 20% off.

One last thing.  Do you have an interest in a Knitting Retreat?  I will be looking at a farm in a quiet country setting next week as a possible destination.  It has 5 bedrooms and can accommodate 10 people.

March News

Hi Everyone:

With the nice weather we have been experiencing and Spring just a week away I am sure everyone is looking forward to getting out and about.  This winter is the worst that I can remember in a very long time.

Poultney is celebrating MapleFest on March 28th with things to do for all ages.  Be sure to stop in at Stitchy Women, The Original Vermont Store, Williams True Value and Discount Foods of Poultney for their bag sale all day.

I have just met with three of my yarn representatives with their new lines for summer and fall.  As usual I am a pushover for these beautiful yarns.  They will start coming in next week.

For the Month of March, Cascade Sport is on sale for 20% off the original price.  Be sure to stop in to see the Monster Pants made of this yarn.

Brown Sheep is on sale for 35% off the original price.  This is a great felting yarn with other uses as well.  Also have a section of 40% off closeout yarns.

Again on March 28th I will be offering 20% off non sale yarn and notions during the Bag Sale.

January News

Good Morning everyone.  (If you can call 17 below good.)  Prefect time to settle in with your knitting projects.  Can you believe I have started making Christmas presents.


New Yarn:

We have received Indulgence (sock yarn) all new colors, which have been a big hit.


Just today we received an order of Ella Rae Chunky Soft & Cozy.  Those of you that have used the regular Soft & Cozy will love the chunky version.


An order from Plymouth Yarns has been made.  We ordered 20 colors, some old and some new.

We offer lessons to your convenience, knitting, crocheting, spinning and single strand weaving.  If you want to try the single strand weaving we will rent you the loom for $10 per week, help you pick out your yarn, and help you get started.  What a deal, if you like the process after your first trial, we can order a loom for you.

Always when you get in new yarn you have to figure out where to put it.  Therefore for the month of January we will give you $2.00 off per skein on Cascade 220 and 30% off all Brown Sheep.

We also have received many new books with projects for everyone from the beginner to the advanced.

June Update

Good Morning All:

Now that my husband is back on the road to good health (its been a tough 6 months) it is time to get out news of upcoming events.

Sale:  Cascade is discontinuing their 220 Paints and therefore we are putting them on sale to make room for new yarns. We will be offering a 20% discount on them.  Also due to an overstock on the regular Cascade 220, we will also be offering them at 20% off.  This sale will be thru June.  Our Memorial Day Special for the African Market Baskets will continue thru June 7th.  (15% off original price)

Town-wide Yard Sale day is June 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Stitchy Women will be have select yarn for $3 per skein and the Back Room Boutique will be have many items at 20% off. The Back Room Boutique features completed fiber items.  Let your non knitting friends know where they can pick up locally handmade items.

We have always offered lessons but are going to try something different.  We will be giving mini classes of your choice on June 21st from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Do you want to learn a new cast on, a cable, a bobble, stretchy bind off, how to pick up a dropped stitch or something else that you need help with?  We will have three or four teachers here to help you with your particular questions.  Please call to let us know what you would like to learn, we can then have you meet with the teacher best able to help you.

Other activities this summer will include a yarn tasting and how to dye your own yarn times to be announced for later summer times. Have you ever wanted to try the single strand loom.  We can set you up with a lesson and give you two weeks to make a scarf or shawl.  You can work on it any time that we are open.
