We are excited to have the Berroco Sample Trunk Show at the store. Over the last few days, I have been showing them off on social media but promised to do a summary here. They are still at the store this week, so stop by to see and try on any of the samples before closing on Saturday, September 11th. (Reminder: we're back to five days a week.)
If you'd like to see me playing Vanna White and talking about all the samples, you can watch our Virtual Knit Night from Thursday, September 2nd, where I featured them.
To order patterns and yarn for any of the samples, contact the store. I'd be happy to help you.
