Skein Lane is going out of business!

Skein Lane in El Cerrito is going out of business. The sale started yesterday, and is currently 20% off all yarn. Here is a short excerpt from the email announcement I received:

THE RETAIL OUTLET IS CLOSING AND YOU ARE THE FIRST TO KNOW. All of the merchandise, store fixtures, furniture, equipment, and draperies must be sold. So, this SPECIAL INVITATION is being extended to you, our loyal customers and our wonderful Skein Lane community to come to the store on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, July 27th through August 2nd, one week before this sale is publicly announced in the newspaper. Feel free to bring a friend or relative who
did not receive an invitation as your guest. You will have the FIRST OPPORTUNITY to shop and save on the entire inventory before many items are sold out.

I went today (the second day of the sale) and there was still a lot of yarn around, and 75% off of most embroidery and needlework items.

Leah Kramer at Diesel Bookstore

Hi Lori,

I was hoping you could post an announcement on Bay Area Knitters about Diesel's July 26 event with Leah Kramer.

Ms. Kramer will host a craft swap, and demonstration and answer any crafting questions to promote her book, Craftster's Guide to Nifty, Thrifty and Kitschy Crafts.

We will also host a raffle to win a hand sewn apron (by me) from the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book.

The event will start at 7:30.

Thanks so much.
