We have SO many events planned!
Posted by Holly Marshall on
Happy birthday to us!! We’re celebrating two crazy years of Wild Knits. Opening four months before being shut down from Covid wasn’t ideal for starting a business, but between our amazing employees and you, we’ve not only endured but seen business grow. As always, THANK YOU for your continued support. It’s the only reason we exist!
Events and Happenings
Birthday Celebration - Fri, Nov 12 & Sat, Nov 13
You’re invited to join us as we celebrate our birthday. We’ve put together some fun and savings to say thank you to you!
~A limited number of Shibui Standing Tall Hat and Cowl Kits will be available. When priced separately, they retail at $106, but for these two days only, we’ll have them available for $77! These are beautiful, quick knits and perfect for you or someone knitworthy on your list.
~Our special Local and Seasonal Tea Sampler gift boxes and holiday yarns will be available. One of these yarns is an exclusive colorway from Blu Fiber called ‘Wild Holly’!! It was so hard not to put this out as soon as we got it. And the tea samplers have been in the works for a while. We're really proud of them and think you’ll like them.
~A discount of 15% off your entire purchase when it includes yarn and tea (excluding Standing Tall kits).
~Free pattern and coupon for a later date with a purchase
~To complete the party, of course we’ll have goodies!
Advent Kits - Fri, Nov 26 thru Fri, Dec 17
We will have four weeks of Winter Solstice Advent Kits to help you enjoy the season. They can be picked up each week beginning every Friday. (If you prefer to pick them up at one time, let us know. Just be sure to keep the secret!) Each week will contain a small knit project, along with some extras to brighten your holiday. These can be done in a relatively short period and are designed to add fun, not stress, as you celebrate the season. Cost is $52. Regardless of the holiday you celebrate, you’ll have fun!
*Presale will begin Fri, Nov 12. Please call or email if you’d like to take part.
Black Fri & Small Business Sat - Fri Nov 26 & Sat Nov 27
The Friday after Thanksgiving, the holiday season unofficially begins!
~If you’d like to support small business in your gift receiving as well as your giving, we’ll have a wish list you can fill out. Complete it next time you’re in, let your loved ones know, we’ll give them your list, and help them shop. Easy peasy!
~Our Turkish Bed Socks Paint Can Kits will be on sale both days. These kits include the pattern, a Wild Knits sticker, and enough yarn to knit two pair of bed socks. Not to mention they come in a cute, reusable mini paint can! Make and give or just give. These bed socks have always been a big hit.
~Fibre Co. In the Flow Kits (pictured above) will be available. This is a four color, easy knit cowl in Lore minis, Luma, or Acadia. Another very cute and quick knit for the season!
~Fibre Co. Dubwath Kits will be available. This cowl is knit in Cumbria with a beautiful cable pattern. Guaranteed to bring out your inner Brit!
~All Sport Weight yarn will be on sale. This includes beauties like MadelineTosh Pashmina, Tosh Sport, Malabrigo Silky Merino, Arroyo, Susurro, O-Wool, and many more…
Book Signing - Sat Dec 4, 1:00-2:30
We are excited to share Michele Lee Bernstein in the shop with sample items and her new book Brioche Knit Love: 21 Skill Building Projects from Simple to Sublime. She’ll be available to sign books and answer questions. Whether you’ve tried Brioche or would like to learn, you’ll appreciate this book. It's full of stunning projects! If you purchase the book and yarn to knit a project in it, you’ll receive 10% off those items. The cozy mitts and cowl pictured at the top of this newsletter are one sample of the many projects you'll find.
Please stop by and encourage Michele in this endeavor. Michele, PDXKnitterati, designs and teaches from her home base in Portland, Oregon. Michele also blogs about knitting, food, and music at pdxknitterati.com. Check her out!
~Simpson and Vail Holiday Teas are in! St Nick’s and Winter Wonderland are a couple of our favorites. Gingerbread and Nutcracker teas and mulling spices are also here to help get those cozy feels on!
~New to the shop, Crafty Kit Company Felting Kits will be in soon. Plus new Feather Felts Felting and Weaving Kits. Weaving is very popular right now. We’ve seen both arts take off with adults and kids alike (not for young children). These kits are a great way to encourage someone into the world of creativity!
~New Malabrigo Rasta and Verano should be in any day. You may have noticed, but Rasta has been in high demand and short supply. If it’s on your list, you might want to check it out sooner rather than later.
~Urth Yarns Uneek Sock Kits (available in holiday, Hanukkah, and rainbow, among others). These skeins are designed to take the guesswork out of matching your stripes. We also have the beautiful Eyes on U Kit and special holiday yarns from Urth.
~Alexandra Pendleton and Black Butte Shawl Cakes are back in. Alexandra’s beautiful colors and yarns are a delight to knit with. Yay for our local all-stars!
~Speaking of Pendleton, we have some beautiful leather and Pendleton blanket bags by Hawks & Doves. A great one for your wish list!
The above items are just a sample. There’s more to come!
Plus, be sure to check out our sale baskets. Schoppel Raggae and Reggae Ombre (great for felting), Cascade Eco Duo, and Schoppel Sock are all marked down. Keep checking, we'll be adding more.
We hope to see you at all the above. Stay healthy and know that you are appreciated!
