If you were fortunate to be with us for the Debbie Bliss visit, she showed us her new Pure Cashmere
collection. The yarn and pattern books are here and that signals the arrival of other fall yarns. In order to
make space for them, and other goodies, we are having our first Summer Clearance Sale.

                        Join us on Friday, August 4th – Sunday August 6th
                        and save 40% on seasonal yarn. All sales are final.



         New Fall Yarns that are here (or on the way):

        Berroco: Keltic, Memoirs,Trilogy - dyed to complement each other
        Classic Elite: Wool Bam Boo - simply scrumptious!
        Debbie Bliss: Pure Cashmere – it’s here, all twelve colors, along with the book Pure Cashmere
                       Cashmerino DK and the corresponding Cashmerino DK book
        Ellen Cooper: Let’s Twist, Texas Bighorn
        Elsebeth Lavold: new yarn Silky Cashmere
        Himalaya: Baby Yeti – 100% silk from Tibet
        Knit One Crochet Two: Paintbox - subtle color changes create soft stripes - great for felting!
        Lorna’s Laces: Swirl Chunky – a fabulous three ply of merino & silk
        Mission Falls: 1824 Wool - new for us; books and buttons too!

        Windy Valley: Qiviut – this ultra soft fiber from the fine undercoat of the muskox is called
        qiviut (kiv-ee-ute). Qiviut is naturally a soft grayish-brown color, and is one of the warmest and most
        luxurious fibers in the world. However, when qiviut is dyed the colors are so complex it is hard to
        describe them. Come see for yourself.

High fives and thank you’s to all who contributed to our preemie cradle. We delivered 239 hats to the St. Francis
Neo-natal ICU (NICU) in addition to several booties, blankets and sweaters. They were delighted by your generosity.
The cradle is now accepting items to be donated to Manchester Memorial Hospital in Manchester, CT.

to Mary’s Place in Windsor. This nonprofit center provides a trusting atmosphere for children and teens who have
experienced the death of a parent, sibling or significant person.

Creative Fibers LLC is committed to the community; both the knitting/crochet/spinning community, and the community
we live in. We’re very excited about these opportunities to serve others.
