Peace at Hand Partners With The Yarn Spot

Posted on January 2, 2010 in: Events - Tags: events, seated massage

I'm excited to announce a partnership between Peace at Hand and The Yarn Spot, a new yarn shop in Wheaton, MD.  I'll be offering seated massage on-site at the shop, as well as teaching self-care and injury relief workshops for handcrafters.

If you live in the DC metro area and knit, crochet or spin, you owe it to yourself to stop by The Yarn Spot.  Its a bright, sunny, friendly place where I felt instantly at home, and they have a great, ecclectic selection of yarn and notions to boot.  Being able to spend time there while I do massage is going to be such a treat!

Any sort of handcrafting requires constant small, repetitive motions and if you knit or crochet, you probably know how it is to end up with a sore wrist, aching shoulder, or crick in your neck.  Or how about that tension that creeps in to your jaw and the base of your skull after a couple of really tedious rows of lace?  I'm convinced that you end the process with your shoudlers three inches closer to your ears.  I know how it feels, and I know where to look for knitter's knots.

The first seated massage event will be next Sunday, January 10th from 12:30 to 4:30.  Rates will be $20 for 15 minutes or $40 for a half hour.  To reserve a time, call The Yarn Spot at 301-933-9550.  Walk-in appointments will be taken as space is available.  The shop is located at the old Anchor Inn site, and is accessible by the Wheaton metro.

Come get a massage, check out a great shop, and sit and knit for awhile!  Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday?
