Wednesdays at Wynona’s

The first Wednesdays at Wynona’s was a big success and we learned a lot, had some fun, drank a little wine and nibbled on some goodies. Anne did an amazing job to covering a huge topic in an orderly and thorough way. We learned about washing and blocking, including care instructions in your handknit gifts, and storing your items for the summer.

 

This week we are getting ready for our second one…this time it is Fun Knitting Facts/History-Trivia Night! Anne will tell us about all kinds of cool knitting facts, educate us a little on the history of hand knitting, and ask some questions to see if we know the answers! Even if you are not a knitter, but love history and trivia, this is a great one to come to. Anne has written articles on the history of knitting for Piecework magazine and knows what she is talking about, but is also a very entertaining speaker.

 

Please remember to RSVP, either by clicking on the classes tab above and registering for the class, giving us a call at 503-974-9193 (you can even leave a message after hours on the machine), sending an email, or stopping by. It is so helpful if we know how many chairs to set up and make sure we have enough wine and snacks for everyone. The cost is $12/per person and the evening starts at 6:30pm and ends around 8:30pm.

We hope to see you there!

Thank you!

The Rose City Yarn Crawl was an amazing experience for us and we wanted to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone that stopped by and to those of you too far away to come but were thinking of us!

Our patterns were well received and will be available next month for purchase here in the shop. It was some extra work to create to versions, a knit and a crochet, but the response was so overwhelming that it was completely worth it.

The feedback we received from the crawlers was wonderful and thanks to everyone that was so vocal about it. There were some of you out there telling everyone they had to come see us and our kept increasing every day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you and we hope to see you again real soon!

Last day of the Rose City Yarn Crawl!

The last day of the Rose City Yarn Crawl is here! We have had so much fun meeting lots of new knitters and crocheters and getting to introduce them to Wynona Studios and hope to see them again soon.

Today we open at 10am with a free skein of recycled cashmere to the first 10 people in the door. Then this afternoon we are hosting the lovey and talented Ruth from Owl and Acorn Soaps with her fabulous hand-crafted soaps and lotions for a trunk show.

Hope to see you!

Day Two of the Rose City Yarn Crawl!

Whew! What a fun day yesterday was! We loved meeting so many new people, getting a chance to get to know them and for them to get to know us! Saw some amazing sweaters (one lady picked out one of Gwen’s shawl pins that matched her sweater perfectly, and another chose a wool dread that matched her sweater exactly), a cool tote bag, some lovely fingerless mitts and lots and lots of cool hats.

Today we will be hosting a Spin-In. We will have different spinners in all day, and have invited anyone that has taken a spinning class with us in the past to join us as well! There is lots of new fiber, spindles, and even spindle bowls in stock, so lots of stuff to see also! We are looking forward to a fibery day.

As we are doing each day of the crawl, we are giving away a free skein of recycled cashmere to the first 10 people in the door each morning. There is already a line forming this morning….will you be in it?

See you soon!

Royal Wedding Viewing Party!

We will be at Wynona Studios at 1am in our jammies (tiara’s are optional, as always) to watch the royal wedding live. We will provide the coffee, tea and scones. You bring your current project to work on. JJ will be working on the dolls from Knit your own Royal Wedding to commemorate the occasion. Tammy will be here to assist with her HRH The Queen Cowl if you would like to work on that. If you are not enough of a diehard to get up at 1am to watch the wedding, or would prefer to do so from the comfort of your own bed, we will also be open our normal hours of 10am-6pm. You can stop by and give your impersonation of Joan Rivers on the red carpet as we watch one of the many, many rebroadcastings of the wedding ceremonies.

Thank you!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone that came by Wynona Studios this weekend on the second annual Portland Yarn Crawl! We loved seeing familiar faces and meeting lots of new people too. We had fun with the people that showed up for their free cashmere, and everyone that stopped in, either for a few minutes to get the cowl number for the scavenger hunt or to spend some time knitting, spinning or hanging out. There was lots of good feedback on our shop and concept with many people saying how comfortable they felt here and how much we stood out from the crowd with our very different yarns. In short, we had a blast and cannot wait until next year!


Friday morning’s cashmere line:




Saturdays cashmere line:




Sunday’s cashmere line:




And our lovely and very excited raffle basket winner, Gunn Pedersen:








We hope to see you all again soon!

Freeeee Cashmeeeeeeere!!!!!

Portland Yarn Crawl March 4th-6th

The second annual Portland Yarn Crawl is coming up this weekend on Friday March 4th, Saturday March 5th, and Sunday March 6th. We are one of 20 participating yarn stores and are so excited! This is a free event and requires no sign up, you just head to any or all of the participating yarn stores and see what they have going on! Each shop has a raffle basket full (overflowingly full) of goodness. You can enter the raffle at each shop, no purchase neccessary. There is also a scavenger hunt, with each shop having a cowl with a number on it. If you collect all the numbers to match the shops, you can send it in to the crawl organizers to win another prize!  Our cowl was designed by the lovely and talented Tammy Burke and will be available for sale during the weekend for $2, with all profits being donated to the Humane Society. You can find the other shops on the crawl and all of the promotions they are having at www.portlandyarncrawl.com.

 

Please make sure when you are planning your route that you are taking into account the closure of the Oregon City Arch Bridge. Google maps is still showing it as open. The I-205 bridge is still open and only a mile away, so its easy to work around, but if you have not been here before it could be a little confusing!


We will have extended hours that weekend, open 9am-7pm Friday and Saturday and 9am-6pm on Sunday. This is important to note…as we will be giving away a free skein of cashmere recycled yarn to the first 10 people in the door each day of the crawl! Free cashmere people! Woohoo! There is cream, olive, pumpkin, raspberry, pale pink, coral, lavender, and deep purple cashmere in my basket to choose from. The skeins are all at least 100 yards and some are 300+ yards.  I am expecting a big line, like for a new video game release or Barry Manilow tickets, and will be sorely disappointed if there is not. So bring your camp chair, grab some coffee from Caufield House and form and orderly line. We open at 9am! We will also be having a 25% off sale on all of our recycled yarn!


We will have some special guests in the studio this weekend as well, including Kim Baller and Judy Herndon who are both spinners, and Sharon the lovely dyer from Stitchjones on Sunday. The lovely Wrightberry’s Cupcakes and Custom Cakes has kindly offered a $.25 discount off their regular sized cupcakes to anyone that says they are on the Yarn Crawl, so make sure you stop by and get yours! They are across the street and one block down (past Busch’s Furniture). We are really excited for this weekend and getting the opportunity to show Wynona Studios to all kinds of new people. We hope if you have not been in already that you will take this opportunity to claim some cashmere, enter the raffle, and take a look around. 

Free Cashmere to the first 10 people in the door March 4th, 5th and 6th 2011. Doors open at 9am!
