Our Chix Pix for November is Cascade 220®. These will be 20% off during the entire month of November. 220® is one of Cascade's most popular yarns. It is a natural fiber that is comes in a wide array of colors, weights, and wash-ability. From accessories and kids items, to blankets and quick knits, these are some perfect yarns! Now is the perfect time to stock up while our selection is good!
Hazel will be taking a much needed vacation from October 19 thru Oct. 27. She will be visiting her family in Maryland for part of the week. Meghan and Pat will be manning the shop during this time. They each will be choosing their own special sales while Hazel is away. It's a While the Cats Away, the Mice Will Play Sale! They will post on Facebook what their sales will be, so make sure you have liked the Chix with Stix page so you'll be in the loop, or stop by each day to see what they've picked.
Helena, with Oink Pigments also had a great day when she was here for the trunk show. Their yarn is such a great quality with beautiful colors. Thank you for your support when we bring independent dyers in to share their wares. We hope to have more of these fun events in the future.
Our wonderful store owner Hazel had a birthday Sept. 8th. The great customers that come to our Knitting/Crochet groups got together and decided to surprise her with a party, cake, and a few gift certificates to some of her favorite places. We would not be the shop we are without her generosity, kindness, and welcoming spirit. Here's to many, many more birthdays Hazel!
Look for us behind the TCBY, in the center of the shopping mall. Go through the double glass doors, and we are the first door on the right.
The rumors are true!! We will be moving to a new location on Morganton Blvd. Watch for the next newsletter, website, and also our Facebook page for the exact address. Our last day open at the current location will be July 21, 2018. We will be closed the next two weeks, as we pack and move to the new location. We are planning to open at the new store by August 4. We are excited about this opportunity to expand our wonderful community, and with a bigger location we will be able to offer more room for more inventory, classes, and room at our table for friends. We think you are going to like the new shop, and all of the exciting surprises and things that we are planning; Pop up shops, trunk shows, new yarns, and much more. We are also happy to report that our new location will have excellent parking.
Don't forget that we have lots of yarns at 20 to 25% off, books and patterns are 35% off, and our sale room is an additional 15% off the marked sale price. Stop in while the selection is good. The more we sell, the less we have to move so we are marking down some very nice yarns. Be sure to take advantage of these sales.
This year for International Yarn Bombing Day the Yarn Ninjas asked for Critters and everyone certainly delivered! We got some beautiful and unique creations to leave around Lenoir. Make sure you are on the lookout, and if you see one of the Critters take a picture and share it on Facebook using #ChixWithStix! Thanks everyone for your help with this creative project! We will let you know soon the plans for next year.
We have re-posted this entry to make it easier for you to find the pattern recommendations. Thank you for your help and happy knitting!
From Now until Jun. 5, 2018
International Yarn Bombing Day is coming June 11, 2018. This year the Yarn Ninjas have decided to leave knitted, felted, and crocheted critters all over Lenoir. Feel free to make any kind of critter you would like. Any size, any color, any craft, any species, even imaginary. We will be grateful for what you can contribute.

We WILL be open Saturday, March 31 and to celebrate we will have an Eggscellent Easter Sale! When you come in, you will be allowed to pick ONE Easter Egg from our Basket. Each egg has a special discount inside, and you may use it on your purchases on Saturday. This will be Saturday only and the discount will only be good for regularly priced merchandise (unless your egg says otherwise). As with all of our sales, it will not apply to our rewards program as they will already be discounted.
In celebration of St. Patrick's Day we will have a Lucky 17 Sale. All green and gold solid color yarns will be 17% off, Saturday, Mar. 17, 2018 ONLY. Discount is only good on regularly priced yarns, and will not apply to loyalty card punches.
