June Happenings

The Taming of the Ewe is an official sponsor of World Wide Knit in Public Day, June 14. Knitters we want to take part can meet up at the store from 10am-11am. From there knitters are encouraged to go out and knit. There will be some games for those who get out and encourage others to knit. We will meet back at the store at 5pm for a potluck dinner. There will also be a special sale that day. Details will be announced Friday (June 13) night on the blog.
