  • Beginning of September

    Have you been checking our Facebook page lately to see all the new yarns that we’ve received during the past two months? Just this week we received some more Malabrigo and Jade Sapphire! Sock and shawl knitters should be super-excited with all of our beautiful new sock yarns. Regia Pairfect will allow you to knit two identical socks from one ball. If you haven’t seen our new Freia Ombre yarn, you really must. Summer, Meredith, and Hayley were insistent on getting it in the store, and I really agree that it’s a terrific yarn! We’ve also asked Koigu Wool to put together a Personal Threads exclusive colorway (only a few stores qualify); we should see ours sometime soon. We can’t wait to see how gorgeous it is!

    Personal Threads has added a new employee--Emma! Great knitter, great personality.  Make sure to introduce yourself the next time you’re in the shop!

    This fall we’ll be re-offering Beginning Knitting with Meredith and Beginning Crochet with Amanda. Also, Mary K. is having a needlepoint workshop each Wednesday afternoon. Call the shop for more info on any of these lessons.

    The rest of our upcoming fall classes will be announced soon. The PTB ladies have put their heads together and come up with a wide range of interesting classes.  They are putting the finishing touches on them now. There will be something for everyone, from beginner to expert! Watch your e-mail for their announcement.

  • New and Special Yarns

    The new fall yarns have been continuing to arrive in droves since TNNA, and nothing received has disappointed us. We have ordered some great yarns!

    We continue to stock the very best from Madelinetosh. Along with ASAP, Dandelion, Home, Pashmina, Tosh DK, and Tosh Merino Light, we've recently added Tosh Sock, Tosh Vintage, and Twist Light (a nylon blend for socks!) to our lineup. They just seem to go out the door as fast as we get them in!

    We've also received a lot of new Koigu colors recently. If you've never had the chance to see our Koigu wall, we have over 400 Koigu selections to choose from. Everyone is ooh-ing and aah-ing over the new colors! Koigu is something special, indeed.

    Malabrigo has been restocked, and our plan to have plenty on hand for fall is taking a hit; knitters are buying it daily. We're going to have to reorder sooner than we planned!

    Our fall Rowan order is set to arrive soon--stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates. We're expecting color additions to some of our existing Rowan yarns, as well as some brand-new yarns to grace our shelves. We value our "AT" store status with Rowan; it's another reason we are Omaha's premier yarn shop.

    We will continue to post new arrivals and inspiring projects on our Facebook page. If you're not already following us, what are you waiting for?

    We could go on and on about all our wonderful yarn lines--Noro, Classic Elite, Sirdar, Dream in Color, Millamia, Plymouth, Juniper Moon Farm, Debbie Bliss, just to name a few--but you'll have to stop in and explore them for yourself. We carry these and other great brands so that we can truly deserve to be "Your Personal Yarn Store." As always, our staff will continue to make you their first priority.

  • New Yarns, New Classes!

    Every week we are receiving new yarns: Rowan, Koigu, Malabrigo, Mountain Colors, Noro, and many more (simply the best brands, of course!). The spring TNNA market is always anxiously anticipated, and this year was no exception.  Searching for new products and services is both exciting and stressful. We have to say, we're rather proud of the things we found this year.

    Our current set of classes includes Beginning Knitting, Fix-It 101, the Building Blocks afghan, and Crochet for Knitters. This year we're putting an emphasis on working with color combinations. We have Omaha's finest inventory, so we always have many yarn choices for our knitters' projects. Check out our Facebook page to stay abreast of the latest arrivals and be inspired by our customer show-and-tell posts.

    Last but not least, plans are in the works for this year's No Knots Knitters Retreat, at the scenic Lied Lodge in Nebraska City. The retreat will be held on October 10th & 11th. If you're interested in a knitting-packed weekend amidst beautiful foliage and fun knitters, please contact us for more information. Thanks always to our Personal Threads knitters for making us Omaha's Finest Yarn Shop.
