Announcing the first-ever Stunning String Stitch Up! I’m so excited to invite you to come and spend the weekend of I Love Yarn Day with me in October – in DeKalb/Sycamore, Illinois!
It’s always exciting when a new Local Yarn Store opens up, and I’m very lucky to have had a new one open just a couple hours away from me – Stunning String Studio!
I had a lot of fun at their recent grand opening, and while I was there, we came up with a fantastic event I’m so excited to share with you today – the Stunning String Stitch Up! And it just so happens to be the same weekend as I l Love Yarn Day – how fun is that?!
The amazing Michele Costa, the organizer of the unique and fabulous Stitch Up events, is the brains behind this one as well – so you know it’s going to be amazing! Here are just some of the facts:
