It is with both trepidation and excitement that we bring you some very big news: Knitcircus Yarns' retail store will be closing in order to expand our dyeing operations! It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve our local community with room after room of rainbow yarny goodness for the last 6 years. One of the things we have always looked forward to is seeing your smiling faces and helping you plan spectacular projects. However, at our core we are dyers, and our hearts are leading us to expand that portion of our business rather than splitting our time and resources between manufacturing and retail.
Our schedule for our last open week as a brick-and-mortar store is as follows:
Thursday, July 7th, 12pm - 4pm
Friday, July 8th, 12pm - 6pm
Saturday, July 9th, 10am - 6pm
During this time all in-store purchases will receive a 25% discount on their purchase. This does not apply to curbside pickup orders, previous purchases, or online orders. Our staff will apply your discount at checkout.
Fret not: you will still be able to shop for Knitcircus Yarns in person in a variety of ways even after our physical store closes for good. We are partnering with as many local yarn stores as possible to carry a rotating stock of our delectable gradients and spiffy speckled and semisolid yarns for your perusal. In this way, you'll get to support both Knitcircus and your LYS at the same time! Each Madison-area store will have something unique to their location. Stay tuned for a list of stockists.
Additionally, Knitcircus will be making the occasional appearance at local markets, fairs, and even hosting our own events! Upcoming Appearances include:
July 14th - 17th: La Fête de Marquette
202 S Ingersoll St, Madison, WI 53703
Swing by the Fête to see great live music performances, drink some delicious beer, and shop local makers and markets! Knitcircus is a Prize Wheel Sponsor this year, and by purchasing a ticket for the prize wheel you get a chance to win a Knitcircus gift card, plus a ton of other cool stuff. Bug's Mom, Bernadette, will be making a guest appearance from out of town to help in our booth, and she's excited to meet you all! Please convince her to learn to knit. :)
October 7th - 9th: Madtown Yarn Shop Hop
Knitcircus Yarns will be having a pop-up shop with a few other vendors at a location TBD. We'll update you very soon!
While this change is a little bittersweet, we look forward to all of the opportunities for Knitcircus it will bring. Thank you to everyone who has visited our shop over the years and shared in our love of hand-dyed yarn.
Bug and the Knitcircus Crew
