New Stuff!

We just received a very large shipment of
Mountain colors Twizzle.
Notice the white thread going through the hank? What you seeing is the silk content of Twizzle next to 85% merino. During the dying process the colors don't saturate as deeply as they do with the other fiber. Pretty cool, eh?
Anyhoo, we received 12 colors to DIE for.

The Yorkie Yarns Chill Retreat
is beefin' up!

We've got one more class/seminar added on Sunday.
Valerie Robinson will be discussing the technique of adding darts to you projects.
Because there are those of us who have a little extra junk in trunk. Or maybe we have a little too much meat and no potatoes. Either way, sometimes our garments may need a little...ahem....adjustments for our specific needs.
Val will show us how to "make it" our very own to fit our very own.

I'll be sending out a supply list for all our classes/seminars.
Be looking out!
All of the programs are FREE for retreaters!

Oct. 1-3
Gwinwood Conference Center in Lacey
$135.00 will get you a nice bed, 4 meals and a very good time.

Day tripper price is $55. One meal is included.

Call or come in for more information.

And by the way. I'll be making a BIG announcement on Saturday at the retreat. Don't eeeeeeven try and get it out of me before then because if I tell you...well...you know the rest. :-)
