KnitzAndPearls Quarterly Newsletter Fall 2021
Hello, my yarnie friends!
Can you believe we're already halfway through November?! This year has FLOWN by! Winter is definitely approaching fast, as evidenced by the last few days of light snowfall here in Madison, Wisconsin! I am doing my very best to stay cozy inside, and as it turns out, yarn dyeing is great for that! It warms my whole house- and my heart!
I truly do feel so blessed to be able to have this business, and that it is continually growing. We have seen 5x sales from last year, and we thank our customers and wholesale partners for that from the bottoms of our hearts!! You guys are the very best!
What's New Around Here?
KnitzAndPearls has a color card! Select the "Color Card" option from the main menu to see a comprehensive digital list of colorways from Arlington Yarns.
100% Rambouillet Roving, sold by the braid! We just got in a huge shipment of Rambouillet roving, and it will be listed for sale on the Arlington Yarns section of our website within the next few days!
What's Coming Up?
KnitzAndPearls Podcast! A few weeks ago, I tried to revitalize The KnitzAndPearls Podcast. Technical difficulties has left it a bit lacking though. HOWEVER, we are working on it, and hope to fully reintroduce the podcast in January of 2022. Follow KnitzAndPearls on YouTube for the latest updates!
Black Friday Weekend Sale! Friday, November 26th through Monday, November 29th, EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP will be 20% off! No Code Necessary. We hope you join us, and we thank you for your support!
More Places to Shop! Currently, you can shop Arlington Yarns in person at Blueberry Cottage Yarns and Wool in Plymouth, Indiana, and Susan's Fiber Shop in Columbus, Wisconsin. We are actively working with more LYSs across Indiana and Wisconsin to bring you guys even more shopping options! If you're a yarn store owner or a customer and you'd like to see Arlington Yarns at your LYS, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for wholesale information.
Anything on the Far Horizon?
Yes! We are putting together an EXTENSIVE list of shows for next year! So far, we have a guaranteed spot at The Fiber Event at Greencastle (Greencastle, IN), Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival (Franklin, IN), Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival (Jefferson, WI), and Southern Indiana Fiber Arts Festival (Corydon, IN).
We hope to see you there!
**Due to the evolving situation of the Covid-19 Virus, some festivals have opted to postpone or move to virtual status. Please see individual festival websites for updates**
What About Life and Knitting?
We have been having a great time this fall, over at the Muncy home. 3 weeks ago, my brother in law moved in with husband and I, as he recently got a new job in the area. We are very happy to have him as a roommate.
Miss Luna is doing well also! If you follow along on our instagram, Luna is no stranger to you! She is our sweet, 5 & 1/2 month old kitten! Her most favorite thing ever is string, so she is so happy that her momma is a knitter and fiber crafter! (ha.......... ha..)
I have been making an effort to read more in my free time! I am currently enjoying the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. Follow me on Goodreads to see what else I've been reading! (Meredith Muncy)
I have a lot of Christmas gifts to knit! Wish I could say more, but I don't want to spoil any surprises. I will say that it involves a hat, a cowl, socks, and a scarf. Follow me on ravelry (knitzandpearls) to learn more!
I am also knitting along on the Stephen West 2021 MKAL Shawlography. I dyed all of my colors except for 1, so I am excited to carry it as a shop sample to shows! I am also currently finishing up a Love Note sweater by TinCanKnits as part of another KAL.
Before I sign off, I want to extend one more thank you to all of our customers and wholesale partners for 2021. You all have made my dream a reality, and you also helped my husband and I through some financial struggles. Every sale, every message, every comment, every like means more to me than you will ever know! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
