Last Minute Gifts and Christmas Hours

Okay, so it's too late to knit an entire sweater for Aunt Nell or even Baby Bob, but we still have a store filled with last minute gifts.

Gift Cards
Hurray scarves - all you do is braid and add a pom pom.
Arm knitting - an hour to make a scarf - tops!
Knitting needle sets. We have choices in Knitters Pride, Knit Picks and Takumi.
Tunisian crochet hook sets.
Knitting needle cases and stands.
Cricket loom.
Knitting looms.
Ball winders and swifts.
Art sets.
Scissor sets.
And of course you can make up your own gift basket with yarn, tools, and patterns.

For stocking stuffers take a look at our critter tape measures, embroidery scissors, individual knitting needles and hooks, needles, floss bobbins, pattern booklets, and knitting accessories.

We will be closing Christmas Eve at 4:30 and will stay closed the rest of the week.

We will be open again on Monday Dec 29.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

We are clearing out our paint!

So as our gift to you we have paint on sale. 4 for $1.00.

Yes, you read that right.

Whatever we don't sell we'll be getting rid of to make room for other things.

So come on down and grab what you can.

Note: You need to buy in multiples of 4 or we charge you full price. So you see it's cheaper to buy 4 than to buy 1!

Last 4 Days!

Crafty Lady has an app.

Which means you can save big time on specials.

Just download the app and there's a coupon waiting there for you. DON'T TOUCH THE COUPON!

Instead bring it in and get HUGE savings on the special.

Four days left for the current special.

We have Montana DK a lovely variegated yarn that makes great sweaters and scarves.

And Regia Angora Merino, a  fingering weight yarn that makes the softest socks, hats and gloves you can imagine. It would also make an exquisite shawl. Your lace stitches would be well defined and what a nice thing to have on those cooler spring and summer evenings, or as a scarf in winter.

So come on in, bring your untouched coupon, and save big on these two yarns!

Christmas Hours and New Yarn

We have Christmas Hours.

Monday to Friday 9am - 9pm.
Saturday 9am - 6pm

Sunday we're closed as usual because we have to rest sometime from all the crazy. Besides, our knitting is calling to us.

More time to shop!

More time to shop for new yarn.

Guess what? We have new yarn!

Schachenmayr (say that three times real fast).

Schachenmayr has come out with Merino Extrafine Color 120 which is a DK weight and comes in fun patterns, and Merino Extrafine 85, an aran weight that comes in solid colors that match the 120. So you can make a beautiful solid color sweater out of the 85 and a matching vest or scarf with the funkier colors of 120!

Hint: If you click on the highlighted yarn it will take you to more info about it.

Regia Stadion Color

We also have red and white candy cane sock yarn. Or you could proudly wear the colors of Canada. Either way, you'll be all bright and cheery for the holidays.

Moonlight Madness!

Every year the City of Lacombe celebrates the beginning of winter and Christmas with the Light up the Night Festival.

It begins on Thursday with the Santa Claus parade and Moonlight Madness, a night where everyone is out shopping, greeting friends, and spending time together.

Come celebrate with us! We are having a huge sale! I can't tell you what's on sale but I will whisper one little secret.

Lori has samples that the store has used and no longer needs because the patterns and yarn have been discontinued.

Lots of people have asked if we could sell the beautiful hats, scarves, sweaters and shawls and the answer has always been no.

But on that night, and that night only, we will be selling our retired store samples.

That's right. You can buy already made items that we no longer need. These items have never been worn. They've just been in the store looking pretty. Don't have time to knit? We can help. Don't know how to knit? We can help.

These are one of a kind items. There's only one of each item and once they're gone they're gone.

The sale starts at 6:00 pm and goes to 11 pm. We are staying up late for you!
