Tent Sale This Weekend at WEBS!

Have you had a chance to make it to our Tent Sale? If you haven’t, you do not want to miss out this year! It is taking place Saturday and Sunday, May 17th and 18th at our store in Northampton, MA. In addition to our great Anniversary Sale yarns, we’ll have amazing deals under the tent that you can only get at the store this weekend.

WEBS Tent Sale May 17-18, 2014

All weekend, all of our in-stock spinning wheels, tools, and fiber are 20% off. This is the perfect weekend to pick up that spinning wheel you’ve been dreaming about. It’s not often that we have sales on spinning wheels, so take advantage of it while you can.

Shop under the tent at WEBS Tent Sale

On Saturday, we have a real treat. Our Annual Fleece Market takes place in our parking lot. Each year, local vendors set up and you can shop all of their great products. In addition, this year, we will have food vendors. We’re pretty excited about this, and for you it means not giving up your coveted parking spot to snag some snacks, or lunch. (You can see the list of fleece and food vendors on our website.)

WEBS Fleece Market

Since our parking lot can get a little crazy on Saturday, you’ll want to look out for helpful employees in bright yellow vests. They can help direct you to where you need to go. It’s a pretty crowded day, and it’s also a fun day loaded with fellow fiber fans, so chat with your neighbors in line, and remember to be kind and courteous to each other. We’re here to celebrate, not just another Tent Sale, but our 40th Anniversary!

Fun at WEBS Tent Sale

Our Tent Sale and Fleece Market (Saturday only) takes place rain or shine, so we’re keeping our fingers (and everything else, including our stitches!) crossed. We hope to see you here!

 

It’s Finally Here – Our Anniversary Sale!

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

WEBS Anniversary Sale All April and MayIt’s April 1st, and many of you know what that means! No, don’t worry, we won’t be playing a practical joke on you! (Though you may want to keep your wits about you in case someone else decides to.) It is the start of our Anniversary Sale. This year, we’re celebrating our 40th Anniversary and you’ll find some amazing things in the sale.

If you haven’t shopped our Anniversary Sale before, it is a unique opportunity to save on our regular-priced yarns for the entire month of April. Then, once May 1st hits, we have a whole new collection of wonderful yarns at great sale prices.

As always, we have Cascade 220, Cascade 220 Superwash, and Plymouth Encore on sale for both the month of April and the month of May. This year, we’re super excited to have added a fourth yarn that will be on sale for both months – Classic Elite Color by Kristin. This blend of wool, alpaca, and mohair comes in a lovely range of colors chosen by our friend, Kristin Nicholas.

Are you looking to add some needles or crochet hooks to the stash you already have? We have great needles and sets from Knitter’s Pride, Kollage, and Colonial Needle Company in our sale. (I know someone who would appreciate the Knitter’s Pride Nova Special Interchangeable Circular Set.) You can view everything that is on sale here.

You don’t want to miss out on these savings. It’s a great time to stock up on yarns that you’ll need for future projects. I might be starting to think about gifts I may want to give in the near (and far) future and planning ahead.

What’s on your must-buy list this month?

What Do You Get When You Cross a Knitting Bag with an iPad?

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Bonnie totes her tech!

You get the Yarn Pop Commuter and Mini Commuter. When I first worked in the store at Webs, customers would bring in their patterns, sometimes tattered and illegible, when they searched for yarn. Nowadays, most of our clientele has moved their pattern library onto their iPad, Kindle, iPhone, or Android device. And why not? Technology has it all over in the world of fiber. Check out this blog post by my co-worker, J, on the many, many apps, tricks, and techniques that knitters and crocheters can use on their notebook computer. Wouldn’t it be great to carry your iPad or Mini around in a case that also holds your needles, scissors, and stitch markers? Yarn Pop, maker of great totes and project bags, has come to the rescue again with the Commuter and the Mini Commuter.

Multi-tasking Commuter from Yarn Pop

It comfortably holds an iPad or Mini securely in a clear plastic case that allows fingertip access, and has a dedicated space protected by a microfiber panel, for circular and double-pointed needles. The handy zipper pocket even holds a small skein of yarn or the beginning of a project so you can knit on the go. I think the best use for this ingenious gadget sherpa is to carry along with your project bag, so that your pattern, tools, and yarn is right at your fingertips. No more screen scratches from an errant needle, no more guessing at yardage because you don’t have your pattern with you at the LYS. There’s a Mini version for e-readers and the new iPad Mini, in great patterns as well.
