One night only! Get your ticket to a private “after hours” event at River City Yarns. Your $15 ticket will give you admission to a private event with private shopping, discounts and a fun swag bag for you to take home. We’ll host a mini fashion show, provide you with a refreshment and be on hand to answer your questions and discuss your Rowan project needs.
Saturday, June 8 is World Wide Knit in Public Day. You can join in! No matter where you are or what you’re doing (getting groceries, taking the kids to soccer practice, working on the weekend), pull out your knitting in a public place and take a selfie. Help us spread the love of knitting! Prizes may be in your future… click on this event to find out more.
Want to take a weekend off and spend some time at a fibre festival in the lovely Okanagan? Of course you do! We congratulate Yarn Okanagan on having so much fun last year, they decided to do it again! Check out the venue and the classes offered in our next-door province: British Columbia.
You can choose to knit either a throw or a cushion and there are five cushion options and so you’ll be spoilt for choice! Each design uses combinations of four textured squares and there is also the opportunity to have the added extra of stunning bead detailing. Look out for the first pattern release on 13th May!
