Hello Hillians,

Spring is in the air! Last week was so refreshing and we’re looking forward to the warm days ahead.  That being said, it was time to come up with fun new classes, groups and events for the season.  You will notice for example, Introclasses are now a one evening commitment AND we have added Saturday sessions. We hope you are as excited for all the fun exciting changes as we are! Also, all the light and bright vintage is out.  Come in and first dibs on the fresh threads!

Love,
Erica and Jessica

Holidaze Haze

Happy Holidaze Haze, Hillians!

A super huge thank you to everyone who has been shopping with us over the past few weeks. It’s been a wild retail ride! Speaking of the holidays, we wanted to point out some random hours and days that we will be closed so we can enjoy time with family and friends.

We also have some last minute gift ideas, a mystery knit along and our 2015 Winter class schedule is complete. All on our world wide website. We hope to see you at one or a few!

Remember to eat all treats and drink a (un)responsible amount of booze!  We will be in stretchy pants now through January 2nd.

Love you long time,
Erica and Jess
