As you may remember from years past, or may have seen in our most recent email newsletter, this October marks the 12 year anniversary of the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. The shop has grown and changed since Anne first opened in 2006, but always with the goal of bringing the best natural fiber yarns, tools, publications, and classes to stitchers in the Triangle. By that measure, in my opinion, Anne has succeeded tremendously, and I am so proud to be on her team, spending my days in this special shop.
We’re celebrating with two events this year. First, we’re staying open late for an Anniversary Party on Thursday, October 18th, the very date on which Anne opened the shop 12 years ago. Join us from 5:30 – 7:30 pm for festive snacks and drinks, and enter a raffle for a chance to win a gift certificate to the shop. You can get a raffle ticket by wearing something you made with yarn from HYS, or by making a purchase during the party. And yes, we’ll give you two raffle tickets if you do both!
Second, but no less exciting, we always celebrate our anniversary with a sale, and this year is no exception; on Saturday and Sunday, October 20th and 21st, everything in the shop will be 15% off, with the exception of classes and that which is already discounted. This is the time to treat yourself to one of our many exciting new yarns, splurge on a beautiful book, and save on some handy notions.
We hope to see you at the party Thursday evening, and at the sale Saturday and Sunday! We are so grateful to all of you for your support over the years, for shopping and learning and sharing with us. Come by the shop and let us thank you in person!
A reminder: all sales are final on discounted items; there will be no exchanges or returns. Thanks!
