Classes this Week
Click on any blue title for more information or to register.
A new series begins today!
This is a very detailed class that will walk you through all of the math involved in changing a pattern from wool, Aran weight to cotton/linen DK or Sport.  You will learn where you can easily make adjustments and the trickier bits.  You need to have a sense of adventure and a willingness to rip!

This class is designed for new knitters who know how to knit and purl but still are lost when people talk about weights of yarn, different needles, the new language of a pattern, or how to fix a simple mistake.  
There is homework for this class!
 
Summer Series: 
For those already working on the Summer Sweater Series, this class walks you through: picking up and knitting stitches, short rows, and how to calculate underarms (just like for the back).
Have you always wanted to learn to knit -- or have a friend who wants to?  Come join our beginning knitting class!  You will learn to cast on and the knit stitch in this class.
We are so excited to have Sharon back teaching!!  This is a fast and fun project -- and makes a perfect gift for you or others.  
This is a July Jubilee Class!
 
Events this Week
 
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.
 
LulaRoe Trunk Show!
Wednesday the 12th we will have a LulaRoe rep here with fun, wearable fashions.  Come check them out!!
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...
 
Be sure to bring your July Jubilee Contest form -- there will be extra drawings that night!!
 
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...
 
 
Birthday Club is Back!
We are excited to announce that we are bringing back the Birthday Celebrations - but with a twist!
