From one extreme to another



Go big or go home

In November, we are putting away the fingering yarn and the number one needles and trading them for chunky yarns in wool, alpaca and acrylic and picking up our bigger needles and crochet hooks. We have lots of classes to entice you with and a truck load of new chunky and heavy weight yarns for fall and winter. So bundle up and come on over to Mustard Seed Dreams and celebrate the cushy, comfortable, and cozy yarns that call themselves chunky. This great hat from Jo Storie will be one of your favorites. The class is November 22nd. The pattern is available at .

Yarn sale and back issues


Beginning this month we will be loading up a sale shelf with yarns that we are featuring at 25% off the original price. This month is Misti Alpaca, Alpaca with a twist and Mochi. We will also be selling back issues of yarn magazines that you might have missed for $3 an issue. These are originally priced from $5.99 to $12.99. If you missed one or have used yours to pieces stop by to see if we have the issue you need.

Going Green Raffle


We are continuing our monthly raffle. If you bring in your own bag or purchase one of our purple store bags to carry away your purchase you will be entered into our monthly drawing for a free instruction book. Our store bags are strong and suitable for carrying groceries and other shopping items as well. The best part of these spacious bags is that they fold up and tuck into themselves to become very small when not in use. They make great gifts as well and are perfect as holiday stocking stuffers.

Patterns, Yarn and Classes

We have a store full of patterns, yarns, needles and several classes to help you get started knitting with chunky yarn. Deb Reams will show you how to do slipper socks. Thursday evenings you can learn how to make a beautiful cabled cowl and on Saturdays we have a crochet cowl and the Cove hat. We will also have a guest knitter from Olympia Washington to show you hexi puff knitting with double points. These are made with chunky yarn and can be used individually or together as a pillow or blanket.




If you don't get the newsletter announcements each month you probably need to do one of two things. If you have already given us your email address, you might want to check your spam folder and see if it is being redirected there. Some sites are more aggressive than others when it comes to mail sent to more than one recipient. Put us in your contacts list and that should solve the problem. If you aren't on the list and want to be notified when a new newsletter is available send me an email to with the word subscribe. For other questions or conversations you can reach Meg and Deb at .
