It's time . . .

It is time - The Crafty Lady is busy planning for the CreativFestival Shows in Edmonton and Calgary next month. Lori and Margaret will be teaching courses on working with two circular needles, magic loop and with double points. Drop in and see them!! For more information on the shows, please visit:

It is time - for you to hurry in to our new location and lay claim to yarns for your fall, winter and Christmas projects. Historically, The Crafty Lady booth at both shows sells a quantity of our yarns - great for the store, but sometimes we may not be able to provide the same dye lot or colour if/when you run short. 

It is time - for back to school! In my experience (while I had younger children) September is an even more expensive month than December - so we now offer "layaway". Do your planning and "pay as you knit".

It is time - for me to learn how to read and complete a crochet project - from a pattern! I have crocheted for several years, i.e. edging for knit squares to join a blanket together while creating texture. I know how to crochet water balloons (5 balls of chenille later I have proof). So, with the help of my friends, I am going to tackle a patterned project.

With The Crafty Lady's permission, we will post the finished project here

I digress. It is time to learn a new skill as your children return to a very structured life at school (a new skill other than driving 3 kids to 3 different places at the same time).

It is time - for rain and harvesting! It is time to pickle, can, jam, freeze, eat and harvest all of the bounty of our spring plantings.

It is time - for any number of projects. It is time - for . . . fill in the blank with your own personal goals and/or projects.

It is also time for our new 75% Off Sale - and this week's feature is a perennial favourite and one of the best selling yarns in the Debbie Bliss line; a blend of extrafine merino and cashmere.
