Do you love to read? Do you love to read books about witches? Do you like to get together with other fiber artists and talk about books? Do you love yarn? Well, this is the book club for you! Each month we will get together on the Thursday closest to the change of the zodiac to discuss a book that features witches! Plus, we will have a yarn available each month that corresponds to that book. What could be better? As a bonus you can even choose the base you want for your yarn! You can buy it monthly, or save 5% and subscribe with automatic renewals. Check back each month to find out what book we are going to read next as well as what yarn we are going to feature. Each book discussion will be held in a Zoom session (link to be announced later) beginning at 7:30pm and lasting for about an hour each time. Be sure to bring your tea and fiber work as we chat about our favorite characters.
Deadlines for the current month's yarn will be the 15th of each month. All orders placed after the 15th will be held until the following month. The March book will be It Takes a Witch by Heather Blake. If you wish to purchase a past month's yarn, please visit their own listings.
All 2022 book clubs will be the third Thursday of the month at 7:30pm EST
The Zoom meeting will be held at this URL through our October meeting: t.ly/JLTj

Our June book will be The Little Shop of Found Things by Paula Brackston.
Xanthe and her mother Flora leave London behind for a fresh start, taking over an antique shop in the historic town of Marlborough. Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds. When she touches them, she can sense something of the past they come from and the stories they hold. When she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine, she has to know more. It is while she’s examining the chatelaine that she’s transported back to the seventeenth century, where she discovers an injustice in its history. The spirit that inhabits her new home confronts her and charges her with saving her daughter’s life, threatening to take Flora’s if she fails. While Xanthe fights to save the girl in 1605, she meets architect Samuel Appleby. He may be the person who can help her succeed. He may also be the reason she can’t bring herself to leave. With its rich historical detail, strong mother-daughter relationship, and picturesque English village, The Little Shop of Found Things delivers a heartfelt page-turner.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
