Dear Customer:

 
 

Can you believe it's already December? Time to get down to business with all those crafting holiday gifts! At Sew Steamboat, we've got what you need. Beautiful yarns, a variety of fabrics for all sorts of projects (Minky or fleece blankets, sweater knits, batiks and cottons!), books for inspiration and patterns, and notions to put these projects in high gear. There are 23 days left to shop and craft!

If you prefer, shop our in-house Stitched store for pre-made items that would make great gifts for family members and friends. Local artists have made beautiful crafts for sale - if you haven't seen the display lately, check it out!

Please note our holiday hours: we will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Sew Steamboat,

Blair, Cho, Cindy, Donna, Kathleen, LA, Lynn, Mariah, and Nancy



Staff Picks: Cho Tin Tun Kirkpatrick - Blue Sky Extra

I just cannot stop knitting with Extra yarn by Blue Sky Alpaca! The texture of this yarn is very soft and lush, made with 55% Baby Alpaca and 45% Fine Merino. Light, but warm and lofty, with a springy twist. It is a very versatile Aran weight yarn that will create many beautiful projects.

The Extra yarn is recommended for any projects, especially because of its generous yardage. At 218 yards, this yarn is great for one- and two- skein holiday gifts such as gloves, mitts, hats, cowls, scarfs, etc.

At the moment, I am knitting my 5th Tokyo Tower bandana cowl, designed especially for Extra by Blue Sky Alpaca. The design is very simple and because of this luscious yarn, you will never be able to put down your project!


What's On Our Needles: Lynn Wunder

Ultra Alpaca by Berroco

I have a lot of projects currently on needles. My first priority is to finish a cute hat from some old Rowan wool, which I acquired from my Mom. The hat will go with mittens I knitted to the United Way Holiday Exchange. We are still accepting hats, mittens and scarves! I'm also working on a wine bottle gift bag from our beautiful Berroco Ultra Alpaca...bright green with white snowflakes! This worsted weight yarn is made from 50% Alpaca and 50% Wool. See below for a special offer. Lastly, I am slowly finishing a pretty little cowl, "selfishly" for myself, out of luscious cashmere. Wine anyone?
