Marin Fiber Arts' Spring Cleaning

Greetings Fiber Friends!

Spring is around the corner and that means big changes are coming to Marin Fiber Arts.

As I mentioned in a previous post/email, we had planned on moving into a better space in a few months. Unfortunately the deal fell through, so we will be staying at our current location for the time being.

Instead of moving, we will be totally revamping the store - clearing out existing inventory, restocking with brand-new items, rearranging, and redecorating. Think of it as Spring Cleaning at Marin Fiber Arts.

The first step will be a huge Spring Cleaning SALE. All yarn in the store will be on sale at deeply discounted prices. See the bottom of this e-mail for a sampling of what's in store.

The sale will start tomorrow, Wednesday February 27th run for a week or two (yet to be determined). Once you all have emptied many of our shelves, we'll be closing for a week or two to restock and redecorate - think of it as a yarn store makeover. When we reopen we'll have a big grand reopening celebration.

Stay tuned for more details!

Thank you to all attendees of Lucy Neatby's workshop last week. Much educational fun was had by all! Lucy is a sweetheart and won over the class with her charm and humor - not to mention her amazing color work examples! Let's all hope she returns next year!

In stock I have a selection of two of her hand-dyed sock yarns, Celestial Merino (100% merino) and Cat's Pajamas (Cashmere blend) - to dye for! I also have a large selection of Lucy's wonderful instructional DVDs - it's like taking a workshop in your own home at your own pace! Each DVD sells for $30. NOTE: these products are NOT included in the Spring Cleaning Sale mentioned above.

The Garnstudio closeouts I introduced a few weeks ago are selling very well, especially the Alpaca! I am expecting a HUGE shipment of drastically reduced Garnstudio yarns by the end of the week as part of the Spring Cleaning sale... make sure to check it out!

Here are some examples of the huge savings that start tomorrow, Weds, Feb. 26th:

50% off: all Aslan Trends, all Jo Sharp, all Cascade, Mission Falls 1824 wool, all Anny Blatt/Bouton d'Or, all Alchemy Yarns, GGH Bel Air, and much much more.
