Rise Together: LYS Day 2020

This year’s limited-edition LYS Day colorway from Stitch Together Studio, Rise Together.

Rise TogetherIt’s the only way to survive 2020‑‑together. It is no exaggeration when we say we simply would not be here today if it were not for you. We have been lifted up and held in every way imaginable by our customers and friends, and we’re taking the opportunity this weekend to say thank you. Thank you for believing in us. Thank you for supporting us. Emotionally. Financially. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your creative life‑‑it is an honor, to be literally and figuratively knit into the fabric of your lives. Thank you doesn’t quite seem like enough.

While we’re still at extremely limited capacity in our bricks-and-mortar storefront (we are only allowing 3 customers in the shop at a time), this weekend is a virtual celebration that will include all of our fiber-loving friends, near and far.​​​​​​​

For one weekend only‑‑from 7 am Saturday morning until 11:59 p.m. Sunday evening‑‑we’re having an online sale.

We don’t usually have sales (ever!) but it’s our way of saying thank you for your loyal support.

Knitter’s Salve + Lip Tint from Lake and Woods Apothecary.

There will also be a gift with every purchase. Typically for this annual event, we tuck a physical gift into every box, but this year we wanted to give a gift that keeps giving‑‑to others who have also been shining their bright lights in Northern Michigan during these dark times. For every purchase throughout the weekend, you will each receive a $10 gift certificate to your choice of one of three local, women-owned businesses: Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate of Empire, Cottage Books in Glen Arbor or Lake and Woods Apothecary of Suttons Bay. Jody, Sue and Kelly have provided an endless stream of comfort to both of us in terms of chocolate, books and herbal remedies for the past six months, and we want you to have a bit of comfort in your lives, too. We hope you’ll use the gift certificate toward something‑‑a box of truffles, a poetry collection, a sleep-to-dream tincture‑‑you’ve had your eye on, but were too hesitant to treat yourself. Please do‑‑because you are worth it.

We’ll be giving away the $100 gift basket shown below to one lucky participant from our Saturday morning Zoom call‑‑all you have to do is come sit and virtually knit with us on Saturday morning from 10 am to 12 noon EDT, type your email address in the comment box during the call and you’re entered to win.
