Spring Fling

Have you thanked your local yarn shop lately? No, really -- our local shops are here for us year in and year out. Have you special ordered something? Wound a skein into a ball without having to purchase your own winder and swift? Gotten help in picking which color looks best on you? Taken a class? Or just in general gotten help with a stalled project?

The last weekend in March our local shops will be having Spring Fling weekend. The weekend of 29 March through 2 April our local shops will be having special events and prizes. If you spend $25 in a participating shop, you will be registered to win a gift basket of prizes worth at least $100! More information is available on Ravelry groups "Atlanta area yarn shops spring fling" or just ask your local shop how they are celebrating. This is a great reason to buy that latest book you were thinking about, or maybe finish filling in the gaps in your needle collection. Or maybe you just need to knit another baby sweater or blanket so you will be ready ahead of time for the next shower? Be sure to show your local yarn shop how much you appreciate their presence!
