Small Update & a Little Move

We’ve added a few new colors to the QCC Yarn line and we have also decided to move it to its own website. This separation of Ewe Sew An Sew and QCC Yarn will help us to better focus each site on its own products.

At qccyarn.com we can offer better shipping options, especially to our international customers. We also have a rewards program called Happy Cats. You’ll be able to earn Happy Cats every time you shop and by creating an account you’ll get 200 Happy Cats! Those 200 Happy Cats can be redeemed for a $5 discount to be used on your next order.

The Golden Purls – Makers, You’ve Got Style! – 10% Soft Opening Discount

Introducing The Golden Purls! Please enjoy 10% off for our Soft Opening on Etsy!

The Golden Purls are a real-life mother & daughter team who take pride in creating hand-dyed yarn inspired by their favorite moments and colors from the classic TV show, The Golden Girls.

Liane is the mother: she’s quick-witted and just slightly off-kilter, but she usually knows best (much like Sophia).

Nicole is the daughter: she has no patience for the nonsense around her, but she’ll always love her Ma (a total Dorothy).

The Golden Purls combined their love of knitting and the dynamic between Sophia & Dorothy and started a hand-dyed yarn company in 2018. They are committed to producing rich colors with outrageous names (yes, they go there!) inspired by everything golden.
