We’re Board!

  Not bored. We have two new sources of information at Jessica Knits and Crochets. You’ll see one immediately upon entering the shop. Look directly in front of you and a beautiful glass and wood sign alerts you to what’s new in the shop, welcomes special groups and classes that day and, most importantly, tells you what the  In-Store special is for the week. This is an unadvertised special and  it’s always fantastic! It changes every week, so stop in often to check out the bargains.

We also have a new community board by our exclusive coffee bar. You’ll find recent customer projects, current events, upcoming festivities and more on this fun, informative bulletin board. Show us a recent project made out of our yarn and we’ll feature you on the board. Or just check it out while helping yourself to a goodie and coffee and get inspired.
