Sample Sale! Every now and then, we go through our in-store samples to find projects that we no longer need for display. It might be a yarn that we're no longer stocking or a colour that we just can't get any longer. We've packaged up these items and put them out for you to purchase. These items are ready to go! They are a final sale item, so read the details carefully before putting one (or more) in your cart.
