Our Birthday

It’s The Flying Needles THREE YEAR BIRTHDAY in October. To celebrate this HUGE milestone in being a retail brick & mortar yarn shop, we are claiming the ENTIRE MONTH of October to celebrate! Old & new friends will be appearing to help us celebrate in style.

Mrs. Crosby yarns are coming to play! Oct. 4 & 5, Mrs. Crosby with a side of Lorna’s Laces yarns will be landing for a sinfully decadent Trunk Show. We hit the road for Rhinebeck & the N.Y. Sheep & Wool Festival Oct. 18 – 20. And Oct. 25 & 26, Samantha is driving all the way from Iowa to bring her super sassy yarns from Whimsical Wood Yarn. We’re capping the month’s celebrations with an after-hours event – “Knitschief Managed” from 6 to 8:30 pm Saturday Oct. 26.

It’s a month-long party y’all!

Please mark your calendars!

Oct. 4 & 5

Mrs. Crosby will be delivering her decadent yarn lines, which will be available for shopping Friday & Saturday:

  • Due Capre, her 85% Cashmere/15% Mohair
  • Train Case, 55% superwash merino/15% Nylon/30% Outlast, the NASA engineered fiber
  • Hat Box, 75% superwash merino/15% Silk/10% Cashmere
  • Carpet Bag, 80% superwash merino/20% silk

Oct. 15, 5 to 7 pm
We’ve added a special birthday bash: Cake, Ghouls & WIPs! Our actual birthday is Oct. 15! To celebrate, from 5 to 7 pm Tuesday, Oct. 15, we’re hosting a special Open Stitching with cake, a side of Works In Progress,  knitting or crocheting, and ghost stories! Our fellow knitter Kim Carter is going to rivet us with her tales of the paranormal.

Oct. 18-20

We’re headed to RHINEBECK’s New York Sheep & Wool Festival! Click HERE for more DETAILS!

Oct. 25-26

Samantha will be hauling her sweary yarns, including F*&! Cancer. But our after-hours party is the true showcase. This Harry Potter sweary event is for adults only. Tickets are $65, which nab you an exclusive party bag that includes an exclusive colorway that will never be dyed again, a Harry Potter themed project bag and other goodies that are more than the value of the ticket. And FOR THIS PARTY ONLY, OUT WILL COME HER HARRY POTTER THEMED YARNS! Please don’t arrive on Saturday expecting to see these yarns – they will be entirely exclusive to 25 lucky ticket holders, and Samantha BRINGS THE PARTY! She has followers that follow her wherever she goes. Tickets are sold out for this event.
