Due to the economy, enrollment for the luxury retreat has been low.  As a result, I have decided to have Melissa give her classes at the shop on Saturday and Sunday 24 & 25 March, which will significantly reduce the cost.  There will still be a minimum requirement of 20 registrants and a maximum of 35.  Registration minimum must be met by 21 February 2012 or the weekend will be cancelled (I must give Melissa 30 days notice of go or no go).  The cost for the weekend at the shop will include two lunches and is $275 for all four classes.  If you wish to take classes "a la carte" they are $75 each, no lunches included.  The class schedule remains the same. 
Retreat Details:  

  • Refund policy:  A 25% refund will be given after 01 Feb 2012.  If, for any reason, The Yarn Gourmet must cancel the event, a full refund will be given.
  • Classes only policy: A single class may be purchased for $75, no meal included.
  • Spouses or partners are welcome, but may not sit in on classes unless appropriate registration is paid.  If they do not participate in classes but wish to share lunch with us there will be a $10 meal fee.
  • No children, please.

I am having a ONE DAY SALE on Friday 03 FebruarySelect books will be 40% off, clearance yarns will be reduced 50% or more.  I need to move out the old so I can bring in the new, and my customers will receive the benefits of both.  Hours will be the usual 10 to 8; no coupons may be used for discounted items, and all discounted items are non-returnable.

But wait - that's not all!  (No, I'm not selling ShamWOW.)  I will be having a Artyarns and Interlacements
Champagne and Hotdogs Event on Friday 24 February, from 3 to 8 PM.    This event will feature kits from Artyarns and Interlacements.  The Artyarns kits will  include 2 mini skeins of Beaded Silk Light and 1 mini skein of Cashmere 1 Ply (Every Which Way Shawl Kit), or one 200-yard skein of Rhapsody glitter Light and 4 mini skeins of Beaded Silk & Sequins Light, approximately 80 yards total (Shawl for All Seasons Kits).  Best of all, some of these kits have a crochet option

Purls of wisdom: if you don't have confidence, you'll always find a way not to win.
