Trunk Show: Just Knitting in Carleton Place

Come see us!

Two weeks from now, we’ll be travelling to Just Knitting in Carleton Place Ontario (near Ottawa) to do a trunk show.  What is a trunk show?  Well in our case, we stuff our little car as full as possible with yarn and more yarn and samples of things knit with our yarn, and then a little more yarn.  And then we unload it at someone else’s shop and wait for the hoards to arrive.   We’ll be bringing a little bit of everything for you to fondle and oogle and if you want, purchase.  Patterns too.  And certainly some buttons and magnets and other funky extras will come with us as well.

Date: February 4, 2012, 9 am – 5 pm
Where:  Just Knitting
6 Lake Ave. W.
Carleton Place ON

If you have any special requests, you can let Kelly at Just Knitting know (Phone: 613-492-5648 Email: JustKnitting@gmail.com) or email us yourself and we’ll do our best to bring it!

PS:  I’m glad we’re not travelling today.  I’d take a photo of what it looks like out our window at the moment, but really it just looks like this:

 

 

 

 

 

See that?  Yeah.  Me neither.  😉

Winter Retreat!!

We’re hosting a Winter Mini-Retreat from March 2 – 4, 2012.

After receiving many emails about this weekend I hosted for some friends from Toronto, I thought I’d host one for the rest of you!  This is a small, very informal, very cozy getaway.  There will be knitting.  There will be excellent food (and quite possibly some wine).  And did I mention we unload a carload of yarn into the living room for you to squoosh?

We rent a house together.  We share meal making (even if you hate to cook, we’ll find something for you to contribute.  Don’t worry!)  We knit.  A lot.

It’s the most fun and relaxing time I have all year.

Did I mention Ron is already preparing himself for hourly yarn deliveries?

Location:  We rent a house in Haliburton County, not far from the Indigodragonfly Studio.  You’re responsible for getting yourself here, but we can help you find people to carpool with.  There’s also a bus that comes to Haliburton and we’d be happy to pick you up.

Cost:  We need to cover the rental of the house, so we’ve developed a sliding scale.  If we fill the house, the cost is significantly lower for everyone.  We have some sign ups already, so here’s where the sliding scale stands:

  • 1 person – $150 per person (shared room/bed); $300 for a single room
  • 2 people – $130 per person (shared room/bed); $260 for a single room
  • 4 people – $100 per person (shared room/bed)

Questions?  Want to sign up to go?  Email us at ordersATindigodragonfly.ca (replace “AT” with “@” and make sure it’s “.ca”, not “.com”) and we’d be happy to answer!

 

 

 

Yarn Update: Jan. 10, 2012

Okay, so even though we’re still on holidays, we thought we’d put some new stuff on line we’d been holding back to hold ye’s over – the Sales Desk/Couch will re-open on Jan. 16, but if you’d like any of these, send an email to orders@indigodragonfly.ca and we’ll put ’em aside for ye!

********************************************************************************************************************

Email orders to: orders@indigodragonfly.ca to place all orders.  Let us know: 1)  what you would like to purchase, 2) where you live (state/province/country), and 3) whether you would like us to wind your yarn into cakes (charge of $1 per skein with proceeds going to our Otis Houndation).  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  Please allow approx. 1 – 2 weeks for delivery in Canada, 1 – 3 weeks for deliveries to the United States, and 2 – 8 weeks for international shipping (and possibly a bit longer depending on where you are). For further information, see the bottom of this post.

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.85 for surface mail and $7.46 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.
