Make and Take Dog Toys benefiting Fences for Fido

Once again, we're asking you to come make dog toys to donate to a great local charity: Fences for Fido! Throughout the month of June, drop by and make braided tug toys using our wooly worms -- one to keep and one to donate. Last June, we made 170 tugs... this year, we're hoping to make 200 tug toys for Fidos in need.

Wet Felting Mini-Class for Retirement Communities

Wet felting is a craft with numerous physical and mental benefits for participants. This gentle craft helps develop hand muscles and joint support, and is suitable for people with arthritis and other hand/wrist issues. The act of crafting can also help manage pain and relieve stress. If you are interested in scheduling a class for your community, please call the store at (503) 535-5786 for more information.

The Woolen Mill Store has wet felting and needle felting kits available for those who want to explore working with carded wool independently.

NEW! Yarn Wall Hanging Class

What better time for a yarn-centric new class than during Fiber Arts Month? Make a trendy, no-sew wall hanging using Pendleton 100% wool yarn and customize it to suit your personal decor. Visit our Classes and Events page for more information.
