Spring/Summer Yarns for 2008

Here's a new sampling of one of the yarn lines we will be carrying for the Spring and Summer.
Let's get earth friendly! This booklet of easy and comfortable pieces reflect the eco-friendly properties of the Terra Collection yarns. You can do something good for the environment and yourself at the same time. The eco-collection consists of three new yarns Sky, Bali and Jeans. 


We have the cover sweater done in Jeans on display at the shop and are in the process of knitting the Bali V-neck short-sleeved pullover (see photo below) - so soft and easy to wear. 

Come by for a visit to see these completed models and to view all the fashions in this booklet. Or check it out online by copying the following link into your web browser to see the designs

Yarn Market News Conference March 24 thru March 26, 2008

We just got back from our YMN Conference in Chicago, Il. What a great 2 1/2 days! We met so many wonderful and inspiring shop owners and speakers. Talk about bursting with renewed enthusiasm and wonderful new ideas! Stay tuned while we roll out these new ideas to make The Continental Stitch bigger and better...

The last afternoon we toured Lorna's Laces Studio/Dyeworks. Here's Shirley enjoying the tour!

The owner of Lorna's, Beth Casey graciously showing us around and showing us her dyeing skills!

Now we know why it might take awhile to get her yarns in stock! Talk about a labor of love!
