Countdown to Yarn Cupboard’s 4th Annual Fiber Arts Retreat and Market.

Will it ever stop snowing? My husband said that last year his first round of golf was March 5th. We had a blizzard March 12th this year and we have an enormous snow drift in front of the shop. But it seems almost tropical today at 33 degrees Fahrenheit.
No matter where you are on the East coast, Mid west, and even South, this winter has been one for the record books.
So needless to say, everyone has a hat, cowl, mitts or socks on one set of needles. But we are so looking forward to Spring. And a wonderful way to start the Spring is at our Retreat this year on the weekend of April 25th. Again, we were very lucky to have such fantastic teachers coming to Syracuse. Maggie Jackson, Jill Draper, Lori Versaci, Laura Nelkin, Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn, Sandi Wiseheart, and Lisa Merian. There are many classes to choose from as each teacher as well as some of our local experts are teaching 2 to three classes each. Colorwork, finishing, cabling, lace, bead work, double knitting, designing,dyeing, color theory, spinning…and more.
Take a look at what is on offer. This is an opportunity for you to learn something new, meet the instructors and make new friends. There is always something to learn.
And of course, the Marketplace will be open 9am to 6pm on Saturday and 9am to 3pm on Sunday. So much to choose from. If you have any questions on what is happening that weekend, just call us here at the shop. We certainly can help you with your decisions.
The Yarn Cupboard is full of new Spring/Summer yarns. The store is brimming with gorgeous color and texture.
As I look out the window at slowly melting snow drifts, I can visualize the Spring with Tahki’s new Tandem or Filatura’s new Minitempo I am working with. Spring has sprung at the Yarn Cupboard. See you at the retreat!
