Dear Laura,

All of a sudden, the holidays are just around the corner! How do they creep up on us every year? If you’re still looking for projects to knit or crochet for gift giving, check out our Countdown to the Holidays promotion below. If you’re a needlepointer, you can also get in on the fun during the countdown even if your gift stitching is all done.

When you shop at 3 Kittens this holiday season, you should also participate in Get Your Jingle On! We’re hoping to have lots of jingle bells decorating the store, but we’ll need your help to make it happen…

We’re also planning a Holiday Open House, Thursday-Saturday, November 20-23. We will have lots of gift ideas. Join us for a spot o’ tea and a treat while you browse.

And, finally, if you’re desperately trying to finish knitted gifts for the holidays, we’ve added more Knitting Studios through the end of the year on Thursdays and Sundays. Be sure to check them out!

~ Laura & Julie
