The Joe Show coming to Fresh Purls

Joe Raffino of South West Trading Company (makers of SOYSILK yarns, including Tofutsies) is coming to Fresh Purls on Wednesday, April 8, 5:30-8:00 pm, for a fashion event. He'll be bringing dozens of sample garments that show the beauty and versatility of SWTC's yarns & patterns.

You'll be a spectator AND a participant, as attendees are recruited to act as on-the-spot models for the garments, doing a sashay down our makeshift runway. There'll be opportunity to order yarn, patterns and kits, and raffle prizes will be given away. All in all it should be serious fun. Attendees at Joe's events in other cities had these things to say:
"People are still talking about Joe's visit and those who missed it are asking when he is coming back."
"Lucky for me when Joe finished in Georgia he came to Florida! What beautiful yarns and garments!"

Attendance at the show costs $5, and tickets are on sale now. Tickets are limited, and we do expect the event to sell out. With your admission you'll be automatically entered into the raffle, for a chance at one of many prizes to be given away throughout the evening. SWTC yarn and kits will be sold during event (merchandise will be shipped separately to be picked up at the shop later) and if you buy anything at the show you will be credited $5 toward your purchase. We hope you can make it!

REMINDER: Market Bag Knitalong kickoff is 2:00 this afternoon (Saturday, March 28). We'd love to see you there! You can download and print your own pattern here (PDF), or we'll have some printed out at the shop.
