Newsletter #41:  Come Switch Aug. 24

The Street Belongs to us People this Sunday

Switch Dartmouth returns this Sunday, August 24, noon-4:00.  Portland Street and all the way up to Sullivan's Pond is blocked to automobiles and turned over to walkers, bike riders, roller skaters, hula-hoopers, and dancers.  There are bands and food and lots of neighborhood-style fun.  This will be our first Switch in our Portland Street store, and we are really excited to see all our friends.  What will we be doing to celebrate Switch?
  • Knit-in-public on the street in front of the shop:  bring your work-in-progress or help us yarn bomb the store front
  • Drop-in needle-felting with WoolBuddy & Mobilaria bird kits (this requires a kit purchase)
  • 15% off all summer yarn (all yarn with any cotton fibre--they will be marked for easy ID)
  • Doing the yarn dance, of course

The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so put on your sneakers, come for a stroll, and have some fibre-fun in Dartmouth's Brightside!

New Stock

If you haven't seen the Rowan Fine Art fingering weight yarn in person, yet, you are going to love it. We've also recently restocked Rowan Pure Wool, Cascade 128, Drake, and lots of other yarns.  Nova Scotia Fisherman lotion and cuticle balm is back (you know you love it) and we've got the cutest little bags that have samples of their different products.

2nd Anniversary Weekend Celebration!!!

You are cordially invited to our 2nd Anniversary Weekend Celebration, September 6 & 7.  We are so excited to mark the completion of two years since our Grand Opening way back in 2012. In addition to special activities--a schedule will be made available soon--we will also be debuting some very interesting new products.  I'd love to tell you what they are, but I've been sworn to secrecy!

Sam & I, and the rest of the Dartmouth Yarns team--Sabrina, Joy, Maria, and Kathy--would love to see you all.  SAVE THE DATE!  DON'T BE LATE!
