Sunflower Rising Donations

With extremely grateful hearts, we're happy to let you know that we donated $1,800 to World Central Kitchen and the International Committee of the Red Cross (Ukraine) as result of the Sunflower Rising pattern and kit sales. We love our community of knitters and knew that you would come through for the people of Ukraine - and we know that many of you have given in other ways as well. We will continue to donate all proceeds from these patterns and kits as long as its necessary...thank you, thank you, thank you!

Newsletter Subscription

Do you receive our newsletter? If not - subscribe! There's a button on our home page to do just that. We are not quite as rigorous as some other entities, but we do send them out roughly monthly. Sometimes more frequently, sometimes less....but it's great way to stay up-to-date with all that's happening in and around the store: classes, events, podcast, C/KALs, new products - with a little more detail than is found on our social media posts (and lots of pictures)! Sometimes there's a discount or two exclusively for Newsletter subscribers....

5 Year Anniversary Events and Details!

Monday, November 16, 2020

It's almost hard to believe that Must Love Yarn has now been open for 5 years, it often feels like it was just yesterday that we opened our doors.  Then I think back on all of the wonderful people we've met over the years, the friendships we've built, all of the wonderful customer projects that have been knit, and surely we must have been open longer than 5 years to be able to fit in all of those wonderful memories!

This year has been one heck of a year, hasn't it?!  It seems like things are changing in the blink of an eye.  We've had to take things day by day, like everyone, not knowing if we'd be able to welcome customers back into the store as the pandemic continues on.  We've now been back open for about 6 months, and what better way to celebrate than with a party!  We had hoped to put on a big bash at the shop this year for our 5 year anniversary, but with all that's going on, we want to keep everyone as safe as possible and we're turning to technology to do so.  This also allows us to visit with our customers from all over who have supported us over the years.  We have a few different events that we'll be hosting, be sure to read below for all of the details!

Join us for a special Virtual Knit Group as we give thanks to you!
When: Thursday, November 26, 7-9pm
How: Zoom!  Here are the details so you can join us:

Meeting ID: 854 4824 1931
Passcode: 894696

Join us virtually, Friday, November 27th for a live shop tour and a Q&A session with the owners of Must Love Yarn, Angela, Jennifer & Kelly!  We'll do a walk through of the shop, give you a sneak peek of the two Vermont indie dyed yarns trunk shows that we'll be hosting (in person and you can shop online too!) - Fiber Stash Dyeworks and Woolens & Nosh, and we'll answer questions that you ask us that day!  We hope this will be a fun way for you to get a taste of the Must Love Yarn bricks & mortar shop even if you live many miles away!  You can register for this event HERE!  Once you register for the event, you will be sent an email with all of the details on how to attend.  We hope to see you there!

We hope that you can Shop Small with us, Saturday, November 28th!  We love supporting local businesses and we have over 25 local vendors that help to fill our shelves with their beautiful yarns, knitting tools and more!  If you join in on either our Thursday night knit group or Friday Store Tour and Q&A session, we'll have a discount code to tempt you for Small Business Saturday (in-store or online)!

Join us all day on Cyber Monday for free shipping!  Use the code CYBERSHIP at checkout for free shipping all day, Monday, November 30.  Free shipping code cannot be combined with other discount codes.
