75% OFF - a Crafty Lady tradition

Families, communities and businesses create their own traditions. Over the past weekend, many of us were involved in celebrating Canada Day. Fireworks, bouncy houses, face painters, ball games, horseshoes, tennis tournaments, FOOD, fun are all long standing ways to celebrate Canada Day. Singing "Oh, Canada" is very much alive.

Speaking for myself, it is not Canada Day if we do not take a minute to sing our national anthem. One of the very special memories I have was years ago, when gathered at the Ukrainian Village for Canada Day, we were all asked to sing in our first language, or the language of our ancestors. It was awe inspiring! I heard 7 different languages celebrating our county, and I know I did not hear all of the different languages being used.

The Calgary Tower celebrated 50 years on Canada Day. Special events help to create traditions.

The Crafty Lady's traditions include:
  • 10% discount on all yarn purchased for Knitted Knockers, when you return the knockers to the store (and we deliver to Red Deer for stuffing)
  • accepting donations of acrylic for people to work into Blankets for Canada, homeless shelters, Ronald McDonald House and nursing homes in Red Deer
  • Knit Night
  • Lori is not a fan of "in-lieu of" days off or moving holidays, therefore since Sunday is July 1st and we are always closed on Sunday, she sees no reason to be closed on July 2 so you get a bonus day to shop!
  • AND our weekly 75 % Off Sale
This week we are not featuring one single yarn. We have a collection of single balls of yarn - one only of a colour or a specific type of yarn which we have taken to calling our "orphans".

Our box of orphans over-floweth, therefore, we are offering our orphan collection for sale.

The collection includes chunky, worsted, lace; ranges including 100% wool, cotton, to 100% acrylic and blends in between. Brands names include Malabrigo, James C. Brett, Schachenmayr, Debbie Bliss, Sirdar and Hayfield. Some of our orphans . . .

These are all beautiful balls and skeins which could be used to complete an unfinished project, add an edging or a smaller project such as toque, cowl or fingerless gloves.

Our "orphans" need a good home and are asking to you to come in, buy one or two and take them home with you. Assorted yarns at assorted prices, all
