July Jubilee
  
It is July!  The year is already half over and we are just five months from the biggest gift giving season.  We want to help you achieve your gift giving goals!
 
Our July Jubilee Celebration includes:
 
Classes for Small Gifts:
Cuddly Cactus (Sharon)
Hedgehog Stranded-Color Hat (Molly)
 
Free Patterns:
Linda has curated a collection of free patterns for simple, fast, fun gifts. You can find patterns on the table and we can print copies for you.
 
Prizes!!
Project yourself forward to November (or early December if you are like me!) and embrace the panic that comes with the need to get gifts knitted/crocheted quickly!
To help encourage you to get a bunch of gifts knitted up early we are going to have several chances for prizes.  You will receive a raffle ticket for each "challenge" you complete.  We will draw prizes at the Summer Party and at the end of the month.  We will also have a few spontaneous prizes...
Summer PJ Party
Always a favorite!  Our Anniversary Summer PJ Party is July 15th from 6 to midnight. This is a potluck so grab your jammies, your knitting, and grub, and join the party.  Throw an extra chair in your car just in case...
 
Trunk Show: July 12 - 15
Beautiful handcrafted items from India in them most gorgeous fabrics!  If you have some non-knitters in your life (imagine) this is a great way to pick up some early gifts -- we will have bags, throws, and diaries.
  
 
 
Birthday Club is Back!
We are excited to announce that we are bringing back the Birthday Celebrations - but with a twist!
 
For the entire month of your Birthday you will enjoy a 15% discount on all of your purchases.  
 
You may be thinking, dang, my birthday was in June, I just missed out.  But you know us better than that!  
 
All birthdays from January through June will celebrate their birthdays this year in July!
To qualify, you need to be in or added to our system with your birthday included on your profile. 
 ID is presented the first time we add you.
Normal restrictions apply -- discounts may not be combined, they are for new purchases only, and cannot be applied to consignment merchandise or classes.
 
Classes!
In addition to the fast, fun gift classes we have a few more new or repeat classes this month.
We are offering standing Intro Classes the second and third Thursday each month.  This class will teach you how to cast on the how to knit.  You will receive a complimentary pattern for gauntlets.
We are offering a standing Intro to Crochet class the first Thursday each month.  This class will teach you the basics of crochet.
 
If you have a couple of months of knitting under your belt and you know how to knit and purl, you should take this class.  It answers all of the questions you do not know to ask.
 
This popular series is starting up again on July 10th.  This is an advanced class -- you are taking an existing pattern and changing it according to a completely new gauge.  You will learn the easy things to change and the hard ones.  It will make you a better knitter and all of the skills will translate when you are making other garments.
 
Drop in Weaving
Peggy offers drop in weaving classes most Tuesdays at 2:00.  She only charges $15 for these classes so pop in and chat with her!
 
Felicia teaches spinning once a month.  If you cannot make these classes, you can also contact her to set up a one-on-one class.
 
Register for Classes on our Website!
We are also really excited to announce that you can sign up for classes on our website!!  Just go to the Calendar Page, select the class you want and check out.
