PJ Party
December 8th from 6 pm to Midnight
If you have never attended one of our PJ Parties you are missing out! Join us for a night of knitting/crochet, eating, laughing, fun and games!
Important Details:
Wear your jammies for 20% off your purchase!
Bring a dish for the potluck.
Bring a Magic Yarn Ball for the exchange (optional).
Bring your knitting/crochet project!
Bring an extra chair if you have one!
Magic Yarn Ball Details:
Grab a yummy skein of yarn - something you would want to knit with. Find 6 little treats to put insides - a fun stitch marker, hard candy (that won't melt), tea, charms, buttons, etc. The fun is to knit with it and find all the treasures!
Yarn should be a minimum of $10 per skein and the total value should be a minimum of $15.00.
When you come in, we will place your magic ball in a paper bag so do not wrap it! We have a new, improved way of handling the exchange!
Contest Details:
No holds barred Ornament Contest!
It just has to be hand made by you and made out of fiber. It does not have to be an original design. Bring it with you to the party or drop it off the day before if you cannot attend the party or will be late.
There is a prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
Join Sharon on November 14th to learn to make these lovely ornaments. Remember, this is our contest for the Holiday Party!
Sharon will provide you with the ball - you just need to bring yarn and needles.
Join Sharon to learn how to add color to any knitting with duplicate stitch!
You need to have the mitts knitted before you arrive to class (or at least one).

Rose Panel Necklace
with Carol
Nov 28th
We are so excited to have Carol Listenberger as a guest teacher! She is an amazing Fiber Artist! I have long loved her wet/needle felted creations and we have worked for a year or so to find a small, beautiful piece that can be taught in store. You can then take these skills and make anything you want! Carol will have lots of other examples with her... Please pay attention to the supplies list! Homework is required and we have Cabrito mohair in store for you.
Hand Dye Warp
With Peggy
Nov 29th
Ready to take your weaving to a whole new level? Peggy will teach you how to dye your warp for an amazingly beautiful, one of a kind weaving! You will need white or natural worsted weight cotton yarn for this class. We will provide the dye for the class.
There is no weaving in this class -- just space dying your yarn. Need help with warping from a warping board? Just join Peggy on one of her Drop in Tuesday classes.
