Country Needleworks Newsletter


Hello everyone!

This weeks sale is 20% off Shibui yarn.
Shibui yarn is so soft and the colors are beautiful.


Yippee! We just received more skeins of Crazy yarn!

We have some new interesting curved needles to share with you:

We have two models, a dishcloth
and a "poof". Both were made using
the Washi yarn.    

Two Sweater Classes begin this week!

Learn how to make "Ramona", a basic buttoned cardigan out of a wool or cotton blend
chunky yarn, or jump into a more intermediate level worsted weight cardigan like "Recoleta",
with beautiful stitch patterns, wide collar and open front.  We still have room in these classes
& we have lovely yarns in stock for each:  "Ramona" begins Monday evening, and "Recoleta"
begins Saturday morning.

Ramona Sweater Class


Recoleta Sweater Class


We just received these darling sleeveless vests. One size fits all!
This would be a nice Mother's Day gift.

We have some new pretty
lightweight scarves for Spring
and Summer.
