Upcoming Events at Woolbearers

It finally feels like autumn outside. Like it or not, Christmas is only 50 days away! To help you get there safely and enjoy the ride, Woolbearers has planned several things that will help you along the way. Check out our website at for all the latest store events.

Make it easy on yourself for holiday shopping; give and get Woolbearers gift certificates! No too large, acrylic sweaters to return! No smelly candles from the fifth grade fund raiser! No last minute rush to Walgreens for the stale Whitman’s Sampler! Printed on pretty paper, they look nice, too!

We have gifts for the knitter, and quick ideas for the knitter to make for non-knitting friends. Exciting new shawl pins, luxurious cashmere lace weight yarn, silk that drapes like water, fun kits, we have it all!

We will even help you with your baking! Join our cookie exchange! Just bake 4 dozen of your favorite cookie recipe and you will leave with four dozen different cookies. We will do the exchange on December 15th, also the date of our annual Finishing Frenzy! Come in Saturday night and get all of those gifts completed. We will provide the technical assistance, moral support, and pizza! We had a blast last year! Check our website for more info at .

There are also several classes coming up this month; A Little Bit of Lace, Beginning Knitting, Beginning Sock Knitting, Needle Felted Snow Family, Tapestry Weaving, and Finishing Techniques with Anne. Advance registration is necessary. Check out our class list on the website. You can also sign up for a class on our online store at .

In December, we are hosting a book signing with Mary Beth Temple, author of The Secret Language of Knitters. Come and meet Mary Beth and purchase this wonderful book for gift giving on Dec. 7th. Go to for more information.

The following day is the Battle of Iron Works Hill. Come to Woolbearers on Dec. 8th for a front row seat to see this great reenactment of an important event in American History! Go to for more information.

Our Mt. Holly Knitting Meetup Group is the first Friday of the month. In December it is on Dec. 7th, the same night as the book signing. Go to if you would like to join our knitting group. We have a great time every month!

Dec. 1st is the Spinners Christmas Pot Luck Brunch. Bring an easy to eat dish and your spinning wheel! Starts at 1pm. Go to for more information.
