Did you come home after the First Thursday sale at Hill Country Weavers with the painful realization that you still need more yarn, preferably at a 20% discount? You might think you’re out of luck, but Gauge Knits has good news for you.
Located north of the river, just off of 2222, Gauge will be celebrating Labor Day Weekend with a sale from Saturday through Monday. Excluding consignment, everything in the store will be 20% off. That means Noro, Madelinetosh, Classic Elite, Berroco and other yarns can all be added to your stash for less. Don’t forget to check out their selection of local dyers, like White Bear Fibers, who will host another of their dyeing workshops later this month.
For those who like to spin their own skeins, the store is also hosting a Spin In on Saturday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Bring your wheels, spindles and roving and settle in for an afternoon of fiber fun. Mary Page of Texas Star Alpacas will be on hand with picking and carding demonstrations. As the chance of rain dwindles to a prayer, you can take in the sunshine on the store’s front patio, or stay cool inside and park yourself on the sofa in the front room or at the table in the back.
Whether you sit and spin for an afternoon, or just stop by to shop the weekend sale, take a trip this three-day weekend to this local yarn store.
