Summer News & Holiday Hours

June 13, 2017

Our special 10th Anniversary Sweet Fiber Yarns’ colour way: Birthday Cake.

We’ve been enjoying so many fun-filled social events at 88 Stitches and we’re looking forward to even more over the summer months. If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe here to receive occasional email notifications from us about more good things to come.

Our 10th Anniversary Party in May!

Life is busy. Fortunately there are many way to stay connected on social media. You’ll find us on Instagram @88stitchesyarnshop. Facebook: 88stitches. Twitter: @88stitches, and for almost ten years we’ve enjoyed an active (and very fun!) group forum on Ravelry: 88 Stitches.

World Wide Knit in Public Day – June 10, 2017

If you’re local to the shop, there really is no better way to stay connected with other friendly knitters and crocheters than by stopping in for our socials. During the summer months we host Saturday get-togethers out on our patio. Two upcoming dates are Saturdays, July 22 and August 19. Bring your knitting or crochet and your folding chair, and come join us out on our shop patio any time between 10-4:00 for some socializing and project catch-up time. We meet inside the shop if it’s raining.


Summer is also the time to get out and about to enjoy our wonderful communities with family and friends. At 88 Stitches our summer hours stay the same as always. However, we do take some extra time off to spend with our families.

Please make note of the following summer shop closures dates:

Closed Saturday, July 1 for the Canada Day long weekend. Happy Canada 150!

Our annual inventory closure: Tuesday, July 25 through Monday, July 31. We re-open on Tuesday, August 1 with a special event, to be announced.

Closed Saturday, August 5 for the B.C. Day long weekend.

Closed Saturday, September 2 for the Labour Day long weekend.


Wishing you a happy summer of stitching from all of us at 88 Stitches
