TID BITS


Frequent Buyer Program
Listen up, my friends!
As many of you know customers can earn credit at YY with our frequent buyer program.
When you spend $250.00 you earn an in-store $25.00 credit.
It can used toward the purchase of any merchandise.
Beginning October 1st all store credit will be redeemable up to 6 months after the time it was issued. After that time credit will expire.
This policy will be retroactive.
So, the next time you're in be sure to take advantage of this great perk given only to Yorkie Yarns customers.


Birthday Program
And did you know that you can get 20% any amount of regularly priced yarn for one purchase during your birthday week?
Doh!
Come in, show your ID and go for it!


Layaway
Our layaway plan has been the best service in this economy...hands down.
You never have to "pass" on that lovely yarn, books, patterns or whatever any more.
Just place your dream yarn on layaway!



Yorkshire Yarns Gift Cards 20% off
"What?? You've got to be kidding me!"
Our gift cards are going on sale for 20% off November 13th & 14th.
Here's how it works. It's very simple. Let's say you want a $100 gift card. No prob. We'll sell it to you for $80 but the gift card will still be worth $100.
The special gift cards will be redeemable after December 25th and can be used for regularly priced merchandise only.
Pretty cool, eh?




Evening Magazine's Best of Western Washington

Have y'all heard about the "Best of Western Washington"?
It's really cool because you can vote for your favorite yarn shop and have 100's of people hear about it. Gee.
All one would have to do is go to the Arts & Crafts section and vote. *hint hint*

They don't call me "Suble" for... well, no one has ever called me subtle. :-)


Isn't he cute?

And finally, many of you asked me if my son really does resemble the alpaca in my last email. I'll let you be the judge.






That's all from me for now. It's time to knit!
