Happy Holiday! We hope that your day will be filled with delicious traditions to be shared among friends, family and neighbors.
Over the Holiday Weekend after Thanksgiving, the Spinnery will be open special hours as a participant in the 41st Putney Craft Tour. Over this special weekend local artists and craftspeople open their studios to the public, offering you a unique opportunity to see them at work, learn more about their creative process and find artfully made holiday gifts that support their endeavors. While you are exploring the area, we hope that you’ll be able to visit our Mill to share in the exciting wooly offerings that we’ll have on hand.
We’re releasing a new FREE pattern for the holiday knitting season. Our Gathering Hat is a very quick knit, making it a great option for last minute gift making.
This sturdy topper calls for bulky yarn and can be worked up in just a few hours with a single skein of Yarn Over or our Capricorn yarns. The hat is worked from the bottom up. featuring slipped stitch ribbing and clever decreases that form a five pointed star at the top. The pattern is charted for your ease.
We’ll also have a fresh stock of our very popular Ugly Christmas Hat Project Kits. This fun project kit includes all the yarn and the pattern to make an ugly holiday hat of your own for just $32.75. If you aren’t a knitter, but know someone on your gift list who is, you may want to pick one up as a gift that will certainly bring some laughter to your holiday gathering.
And last but certainly not least will be our annual Sample Sale! We’ve selected dozens of beautifully handknit items that are ready to find new homes. These items were made to test our patterns and provide several color or sizing options among our sample selection to help visitors plan their projects. We are bursting at the seams with gorgeous samples that can now be retired to make room for what’s next. You’ll be able to find sweaters, hats and more!
This offers you an amazing opportunity to purchase hand knit items made with Green Mountain Spinnery yarns at unbelievably reasonable prices. Plus, a percentage of the proceeds from these items will go to benefit the Putney Food Shelf: our local foodbank that needs our support especially during the holidays.
We hope that we’ve succeeded in enticing you to come and visit. The Spinnery will be open 10 am – 5 pm Friday November 29 – Sunday December 1st; and we can’t wait to see you!
