Signature Needle Arts—Trunk Show!

What do you get when you cross an avid knitter who doesn’t like her needles with a man whose family runs a precision machined parts business? Precision needles, yes indeed! State-of-the-art needles, honed to within the tolerance of one-quarter of a human hair!

Cathryn, president of the 63-year-old family-owned machine shop, is also president of Signature Needle Arts. Signature needles are aircraft-quality aluminum, sleek and smooth but not slippery, and are clearly laser-marked with US and mm sizes. They also have a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects. Their size-specific color coding is groovy as well as convenient, and all the points and caps are hand-polished, “for the look of fine jewelry.

The company started with traditional single-point needles five and a half years ago, then developed double-point needles for knitting socks and hats in the round. Their circular needles are by far the most popular, featuring a flexible, memory-resistant cable and smooth cable-to-needle transition.

An executive of Signature first ran into Tavy in Hartford, and was wowed by her and Assaf's vision for The Yarn Company and the quality of its products. Both knew The Yarn Company would be a great showcase for Signature’s “Ferrari of knitting needles” (as Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Yarn Harlot, calls them). How thrilling to be hooked up with this awesome company! We are truly wowed by the privilege of working with Signature and its multigenerational devotees to excellence.

Cathryn and her husband Kent Bothe are extending the torch to their children as well: daughter Laura is the VP/GM at Bothe Associates, and son Paul is Special Projects Manager—excellent family values, if you ask us.

The Yarn Company is very excited to be hosting a Signature Needle Arts trunk show—and yarn tasting!—at the store from January 16-25, 2015 Be there or be square! 

We will have the convertible circulars, double pointed needles and straights as well. We will have Groovy Exclusives like Midnight in Manhattan to 'Taste' with the needles!
