Wanted to share the following announcement about our favorite LYS in Central MA, celebrating it's fifth anniversary at its current location!

"Thanks to the loyal support of avid knitters, locally-owned retail business The Sheep Shack marks its fifth anniversary at 787 Main Street with a month-long celebration in February. Woman owned and operated, this bustling yarn store has served thousands of New England needle arts enthusiasts from its base in downtown Holden MA. The public is invited to stop in and enjoy the celebration, seven days a week.

“We are so grateful that our community continues to support locally-owned small businesses like our Sheep Shack,” confirmed proprietor Christina Lentz Larsen of Holden MA. “Suddenly, our fifth anniversary is upon us, and we want to celebrate in a big way through a public thank you to our loyal fans, all month long. The activities we have planned with help beginners as well as the experienced knitter, and include projects that underscore our commitment to community service. We look forward to seeing old friends and new ones who need to chase away the chill with a visit to a friendly and fun yarn shop.”

One of the special events happening this month is the following:

"Special events all month long include the following:

Hat Drive for Our Troops: The Sheep Shack is collecting hand-knitted hats for our military service people. Participants can find a free pattern available at the store, with a discount of 10% on all Ella Rae Classic and Heathers yarns when purchased for this charity hat project (one skein will make 2 hats)."

Stop by and check it out! Christina and her staff are loads of fun, and so eager to help. The store is cozy and full of beautiful supplies. And, there's a yummy lunch/breakfast bagel place next door, as well as a natural food pet supply store. Get it all done at once, like I do!
