EWE News for Oct. 23, 2012

Good afternoon, Everyone!!

Your Roving Yarn Wench is posting a little earlier today, and is back on track with updates.  I have missed being online to update, but we all hit busy spots, and the past three weeks have been VERY BUSY!! So much to tell with so little time to tell it, but now we are back in the "swing of things", and can keep posts current again.  This way you don't have to miss out on any of the latest EWE News.

TUESDAY "SPECIAL EVENT!"--Tonight is usually "Knit Night" at the Taming of the Ewe, but we have change in venue for this evening.  Hicks Shoes on Broad Street in downtown Gadsden is hosting a FASHION SHOW from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m, October 23.  Fashion and Shoes!! That is just the perfect combination of events, don't you know!!  The Taming of the Ewe will be attending the show, and we would love to invite all of you to this special event.  It will be a fun and exciting evening for all.  See you there!!

BOLO--Saturday, October 27, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Taming of the Ewe will be participating in the DGI Halloween events for the fall.  More details will be posted tomorrow, but please feel free Saturday to come out and "Trick or Treat" with us!!  We promise TREATS!!

UPDATE--We will have calendars/class schedules available Oct. 24.  Please come by to pick up a copy if you have not picked one up from us.  These schedules are good until the end of 2012, and list several opportunities to work on some last minute holiday gifts, or settle in for the a fun winter's knit, or crochet!!  We will have the 2013 Class Schedules available in December, and we are looking forward to an even more exciting, and event filled year for 2013!! 

Well, this is a "quickie" update as I have several projects to get back to, but I wanted to wish all of you a lovely day, and hope you have a wonderful evening!

I remain your Roving Yarn Wend,
Becky : )

Busy Sheep at the Ewe!!

Hello, Everyone!!

Sorry I have been away from the Blog, but these are busy autumn days at the Ewe!!  We have picked up quite a few new knitters and crocheters, and have several classes that have been well attended.  We have also seen quite a few of our familiar friends who come by to share time and see what's new at the Ewe.  We hope to see you soon, and I will try to take a moment more often to let you know what's going on, and how much we enjoy seeing our friends!!

UPDATE--"Socktober" has gotten off on the right foot, or left, depending on which sock you are working on right now!!  Our sock classes on Saturday are in full swing, and we hope everyone is having a great time with this project.  We are also on our second "Building Block" for that course, and this class has been well received.  If you didn't get to start with "Building Blocks", we will have a new session starting in January.  So, stay tuned for more details.

CALENDARS--For those of you who like the "hard copy" calendar, we have a class schedule available at the Ewe.  This calenar lists majority of the classes, and runs through December 2012.  The NEW quarterly calendar will be available in December for January-March 2013.  We have some exciting things for the rest of the year, and even more for next year!!  Come see us, and pick up your copy today!!

COOL ITEM OF THE WEEK--"comin' Up Flowers!"  This item is really "Smokin' Hot!!"  This yarn is one of the most creative and fun yarns we have in the shop.  Every scarf or mobius turns into a beautiful bouquet of flowers that you can give someone, or make for yourself.  The flowers come in a variety of colors, from Wildflowers to Asters.  These "bouquets" are available for $14.95, and require no planting, watering, or weeding!!  They can make excellent Christmas gifts, or any a gift "just because."  You will fall in love with these flowers, and want more!! Come in and check them out today!!  A photo will be posted here and on Facebook soon of this product, and you will see why it is the "Cool Item of the Week!"

Well, I have a lot more to catch you up on, but I need to get my flock moving to accomplish the rest of today's business!  Take care, and be good to yourselves!!  Keep on knittin' and crochetin'!! 

I remain as always,
Your Roving Yarn Wench,
Becky : )
