Last Day for UFOs

All right knitters and crocheters!  Today is the last day to get those entries in for the UFO contest.  Remember, you can come in or email photos - knit@boersmas.com

Don't be shy!  If you could see the judges' collective pile, you'd feel like a champion finisher!

The Aliens Are Here Again!

It's always a sure sign that summer is on its way when aliens start popping up all along Third Street!
For all of you knit-and-crocheters, it's time to take a look at those UFOs!

Bring your UnFinished Objects, or pictures of them, by the shop between May 13 (today!) and May 20th to be entered in our contest!  There will be prizes for the most UFOs, the oldest UFO, and the UFO with the best story.

That's not all!  We are offering a free finishing clinic/help session on May 21st from 9:30 - 12:30!
If you do get some of those UFOs tackled, you could win more prizes!

Finish any of your contest entries by May 31st, show it off in the shop, and be entered in a prize drawing!

We will announce winners and hand out prizes at World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP Day) on June 11, 2011.

Don't have any UFOs (or not ready to fess up to them)?  Come downtown anyway, check out the windows at the Quilt Store, or catch one of the UFO Festival events happening this weekend.

Stop by the Knitting Basket to see our great new yarns, find our "Just Cuz" sales, and check out the Sock of the Month!
