An important discovery that is good for your health!  It is also good for your wallet.

Definition:  Vitamins are essential organic compounds that are required in very small amounts and are involved in fundamental functions in the body, such as growth, maintenance of heath, and metabolism.

The word “vitamin” comes from the Latin word vita, which means “life”.

At Yarn Asylum, we have discovered a new vitamin.  We call it Vitamin GT. (Group Therapy)

This is a rare vitamin and available exclusively at Yarn Asylum during our Group Therapy sessions.  All attendees will receive one Vitamin GT certificate that can be used as a special discount coupon.

Each week, there will be one item that is on sale during Group Therapy.  The item is a secret until Group Therapy meets.

Vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin with antioxidant properties. It is frequently supplemented to ward off the common cold.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps repair damaged cells.

Vitamin GT is a valuable source of savings.  Studies indicate that saving money is great for all fiber enthusiasts.  The health benefits are too numerous to list.

Dispensing Guidelines:

Each guest at Group Therapy (Wednesday am or Thursday pm) shall receive one Vitamin GP certificate.

The certificate is valid only on the issue date and for the item listed.

The certificate is valid on new sales of stock on hand.  Not valid for special orders or previous sales.

The certificate is not valid with any other offer, discount, or coupon.

Yarn Asylum Support Program loyalty cards will not be stamped on purchases of sale items.

If you call and ask what the Vitamin GT certificate sale item is – I will throw a temper tantrum and refuse to answer.  It is also certain to lead to vitamin deficiency.  It will not be pretty.

Thursday night Group Therapy returned on September 15th!

Daytime Group Therapy! Every Wednesday 10:30am – 12:30pm

Group Therapy! Every Thursday from 6pm – 8pm
