Come enjoy the rich history of the Captain Chipman Barn.  Built in 1840 and owned up until just a few years ago by the original family.  We have tried to keep the original flavor where possible.  The grand old fireplace that once heated the entire barn remains a working focal point, though today that seems like a moot point!  The grounds are wonderful, with places to sit and knit in sun or shade…. The Old Forge is being transformed as well, and will become the studio for yarn dying classes.



Thursday, October 2nd

noon – 6pm 

Are you ready for some fall knitting?  Cooler temps bring out the wooliness in our yarns for sure!  Please join us as we welcome Berroco’s New England Sales Rep, Andra Asars to the shop.  Along with her enthusiasm, Andra brings with her, a huge collection of garments and accessories knit with the newest and most favorite Berroco and Lang yarns.  Your new BFF sweater may be here!  The sample sweaters are knit in an array of sizes and we encourage you to try on everything…dress with that in mind; you don’t want to be left out of the fun. 

So many needles; so little time?  Can you tell the difference between a Dreamz, Karbonz, Nova Platina, Marblz, Bamboo, Basix andTrendz?  Join us for a hands on “needle tasting” of the full Knitter’s Pride line.  Andra will help clear the fog over what feels best!
