Hello everyone!

Cher and Jerri just returned from the TNNA Show.

We had a wonderful time at the TNNA Show this past weekend in Columbus Ohio.
We have lots of great new yarns coming in. As you might have seen on our Facebook page Cher
had her picture taken with the lovely ladies from Dragonfly Fibers.
Their gorgeous fibers are on order and will be arriving in about eight weeks, as it takes time to dye.

Malabrigo also has a great line of new colors which we ordered in different bases.
There are new colors from MadelineTosh; new yarns from Plymouth, Universal and many more.
Fibers for this Fall's knitting will be wonderful!  There's also new bags, shawl pins, books and patterns
that will be available, so stop in and see. They should be arriving in a few weeks.
We will let you know as soon as they arrive.

We have some Summer models for you.
