Month O' Love

There's plenty to be in love with around here these days.
Beautiful new fabrics and yarns having been coming in. 

Here are a few of my faves:

 Philip Jacobs and Kaffe Fasset
Yum, yum, OMG yummy!!

and from Michael Miller...
 Very sweet "Bunting Scallop" and "That's All Dot"


From Berroco...
new colors in Ultra Alpaca and Vintage.
Lots of new patterns too!

Also new from Berroco...
Perfect for kids sweaters...
or fun hats and scarves for adults.

From Riley Blake...
"Fly A Kite!" 
cute kids and their pups...
great coordinates!

A new shipment of Home Decorating remnants
has arrived.  Gorgeous, silks, upholstery
and Home Dec weight fabrics...
 only $6.98-$8.98 per yard!  

Great leather remnants too...

We've had lots of fabulous classes and workshops this winter...
Sewing for adults, teens, kids...Knitting, Rug Hooking, Needle Felting,
Wool Applique and more...

In honor of the Month O' Love, Nancy Keyes taught a
Wool Heart Applique workshop.
There were hearts of all colors around here.
And everyone went home even happier than when they arrived,
of course.

Gayle Johnson has started the long journey
with her latest knitting project:
"The Great American Aran Afghan"
This class meets once a month for the next several months, 
while they learn the intricate needlework it takes to complete
these Aran Afghan blocks.
It's quite an effort...good luck to everyone!

Well, that's just a glimpse of what's happening here these days.

Hope to see you all in the store soon!



  1. Saw your link on the Franklin Matters Blog. I just have to share that my fondest memories of growing up in Franklin were when I would go with my Mom to the Franklin Mill Store. Just walking in made me feel creative!!! I loved the smell of the mill store...I still remember is one of those memories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Although I left Franklin straight out of high school and have only been back to visit family now and again...on my visits I ALWAYS take a spin on Union St.!!! Just had to share!!!

    1. Hi Danielle,
      Thanks for sharing your memories of the store. Please say hello next time you are visiting!
