It’s that time again and Urban Yarns is ready as usual! Last year Jan, Anina, and the team were wildly successful in raising money to fund cancer research and they are up for the challenge again this year. They will be hosting a fundraiser next Thursday, April 28th from 7-9 at 1537 Marpole Ave. You can give in 2 ways at this shindig. The first is by purchasing some beautiful jewelry from Silpada Sterling Silver Jewelry. There will be samples to check out and try on and 10% of all sales will be donated to the UY Ride Team. The second is by bringing $20 and a bottle of wine worth approximately the same. For every 10 bottles brought there will be a draw and some lucky winner will win all 10 bottles. The event is sure to be a fun evening for a good cause. Please RSVP to Jan at email@example.com ASAP.
We are also excited for some great upcoming workshops. First up is Margaret Radcliffe, knitter, designer, and the author of the Knitting Answer Book and The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting Techniques. Margaret is coming to UY in May and will be teaching both Two-Handed Two-Colour Knitting Techniques and Perfect your Circular Knitting. Give us a ring at the shop to sign up for either or both! There will also be a book signing Friday May 27th from 7-9 so we will see you there!
