I Love Yarn Day was started by the Craft Yarn Council , a non-profit made up of the leading yarn companies, accessory manufacturers, publishers and consultants in the yarn industry. Fiber fans around the world are encouraged to share their affection for yarn and “stitch it forward” by teaching at least one newbie to yarn-craft and experience its feel good benefits. Whether people prefer to knit it, crochet it, spin it, weave it or bomb it, the goal is for every yarn-crafter to share their know-how with someone new on October 17th. And then post it, tweet it, pin it and share it on social media with the hashtags #stitchitforward and #ilyd2015 to celebrate and motivate others to join in the fun!
In celebration of this fun event, the Pen and Hook is having a store-wide sale for 15 percent off. To add to the fun, I will enter customers who purchase anything between October 1 – 16 into a drawing for their choice of a free pattern book from my shop.
The drawing will take place on October 17 and I will notify the winner by way of an Etsy conversation.
So, come on over and check out The Pen & Hook. We have fast service and great prices on yarn, crocheted gifts, note cards and journals. I think you will like it!
