Anniversary party and sale!

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!

Sundays in Hillsborough: Book Sale!

The Hillsborough Chamber is sponsoring events in Hillsborough on Sundays, and we’re participating with a book sale on Sunday, September 23rd.

All in-stock books will be discounted by 25%, making this a great time to indulge in an exciting new publication, or pick up an older title that escaped notice the first time around – we have an awful lot of books to choose from!

Here is a full listing of events planned by the Chamber, so you can plan a trip to our happening little town. See you Sunday!

A reminder.

We’re quickly coming up on the end of the month, and with it, the end of our Annual Inventory Sale. With that in mind, let today’s blog post be a quick reminder to come into the shop before the sale ends!

Everything in the shop is 15% off for just a few more days–every skein of yarn, every pair of needles, every hook, every book, every magazine, pattern, giftkit; all of it is discounted. If you’ve been meaning to come by to take advantage of the sale but let the month get away from you, hurry in before the end of the day on Tuesday, July 31st. See you there!

Another reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, no returns, nor will we special order. Thanks! 

Annual Inventory Sale!

As many of you know, July is our annual inventory sale month.

From July 1st to the 31st, everything in the shop is discounted by 15%, with the exception of classes and yarns that have already been discounted. If you’ve had your eye on a special skein, or have been planning a big project or two, now is the time to take the leap!

Pick up a few skeins of the limited edition Brooklyn Tweed Ranch 01, treat yourself to a new book or the latest issue of Laine, stock up on your favorite needles and notions, grab a locally-made soy candle while you’re at it.

Whatever it is you’ve been wanting, come by the shop during the month of July to get 15% off your purchase! We’ll be closed on 4th for the holiday, but otherwise open at our regular business hours. See you there!

Just a reminder–all sales are final on discounted items; there can be no exchanges, returns, or special orders. Thanks!

Debbie Bliss yarns: now on sale!

Though it had been some years since our last big Debbie Bliss order, we were still surprised to learn that the distributor for her yarns and patterns has ceased distribution. This doesn’t necessarily spell the end of the Debbie Bliss brand, but it does end our relationship with it for now. The good news is that we’re putting all our Debbie Bliss yarns on sale at 20% off!

We have a wide variety of textures, fibers, and gauges available, from lace weight up to super bulky. Many are machine-washable and thus suitable for baby and children’s things, blankets, or accessories that see a lot of wear. To that end, check out the Cashmerino and Rialto lines, each of which come in a range of gauges.

Other Debbie Bliss yarns on our shelves include Prima, Stella, Pure Cashmere, Donegal Luxury Tweed, Pure Cotton, Eco Cotton, Fez, and Como. Some we have in good supply, others are already beginning to dwindle.

Though we’re sad to see good yarns go, we love sharing them with you at a discounted price. Come by to pick up some Debbie Bliss yarns at a great price before they disappear!

A reminder: all sales are final on discounted yarn. There can be no returns or exchanges, nor special orders–the discount applies only to what we currently have in stock. Thanks!

Mirasol Tupa: now on sale!

Tupa is a DK weight blend of merino and silk, a soft and shiny yarn in bright colors. Knitted fabric in Tupa has a nice mix of bounce and drape, making it ideal for scarves, cowls, shawls, mitts, and hats. We still have sweater quantities, too – look for pattern ideas on our “DK weight” Pinterest board!
