Announcing the 2017 Holiday K/CAL

Join us for the perfect no stress way to get your holiday gifts done on time. The two key things are starting early (July, for example) and lots of encouragement (like a K/CAL group). Each month we’ll get together to show off our progress and enter the four prize drawings. Just before Thanksgiving, we’ll show off all our finished presents, draw for prizes, and have our annual cookie exchange. You’ll have your holiday presents DONE before Black Friday.

Starting July 1, call, email ( or visit Strings Attached Yarns (937.221.9585) to let us know you would like to join us. There is a limited number of spaces available in the K/CAL so don’t delay.

Schedule:All events are from 4:00 – 6:00pm on Saturdays. The store will be open for KAL folks only at that time.
Kick-off: 22 July;
Monthly meet-ups on 26 Aug, 23 Sept, 28 Oct.
Final Counts and Awards: 17 November

How it Works:
Declare your holiday knitting goals in items (min of 3) and yards of yarn to be used on July 22. We ask that the yarn used for declared projects come from Strings Attached, with the majority purchased during the KAL. Gifts made before you join cannot be included in your goals.
On 23 July you’ll receive 10% off you holiday project purchases (patterns, tools, yarn) up to $50, 15% up to $99; 20% for $100 and up. Sadly, we cannot discount special orders. Loyalty rewards cannot be redeemed on discounted purchases.
If you sign up after 22 July you’ll receive 10% off on the day you join. You can join at any time until 23 Sept.
Bring your finished projects to the monthly meet ups for counting, recording, and gushing over. Purchases for your next projects can be made at the 10% KAL discount. The discount will apply to items already in the store on the day of the meet-up only. Each meet up will feature a counting up, show and tell, holiday noshes, a door prize drawing, coaching through issues, and lots of encouragement and holiday spirit.
We will have four prize drawings. Each prize will be drawn from its own collection of tickets.
Goal Met – Meet your goal(s), you get a ticket for this special prize drawing.
Yarn Devoured – You get a ticket for each 100 yds of yarn you use. The more yarn you use, the better your chances.
Gifts Completed – You get a ticket for this prize for every gift you finish. The more projects you complete, the better your chances.
Best Attendance – You get a ticket for this prize for each time you’re at the KAL meet-up.
Our annual cookie exchange will be on November 17.
