We missed a couple of updates…

… but now we are back.


We are Alive and Well.

We have heard from a few concerned customers that they have heard we are closing. Let me assure everyone that we are open and excited.


Welcome Michelle.

Next up, we would like to welcome Michelle to our team here at The French Knot.  She is a very accomplished knitter, crocheter and cross-stitcher..  Welcome aboard, Michelle.


Classes Will be Resuming.

We are planning some classes for next month.

Crochet 101.  August 16 & 30.  $50 for two sessions — includes materials.

Learn the basics of how to crochet, starting at the very beginning. In this class you will learn how to:  make a slip knot, crochet a chain, make a slip stitch, single crochet, Half Double Crochet stitch, and Double Crochet Stitch.

You will choose from cotton to make a washcloth or wool to make a scarf.


Knitting 101.  August 23 & September 6.  $50 for two sessions — includes materials.

This will be a great class to invite a friend to.  It will be two sessions and we will cover the basics of knitting.  If you’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to learn to knit, this is it.


Speaking of classes, we have had an interest in Tuesday night classes.  What do you think?  Would you like to see some evening classes?  Leave your opinion in the comments.


New Canvases

Here are a few new canvases.  Also, Meg & Hunter will be going to Market in August, so now is the time to make your wishes known…

Tour of the Sale Room

We’ve been moving stuff around.  So far, we’ve put all the sale yarn in the back room.  I think you’ll like it.  Come check it out.

The back room is now clearance yarn.     Another view of the back room.

Speaking of sales…  Halloween canvases are 30% off through the end of July.  We have also put books, patterns, and a bunch of canvases on sale to make room for whatever Meg finds at Market.

Times, they are a-changin….

An announcement.

Two of our talented employees have elected to leave the French Knot. As you know, Leona Cola has been a mainstay at the shop for a number of years and she has decided that it is time to retire. And although she will continue to be an avid knitter and needlepointer, she looks forward to the extra time to enjoy things in her life other than the day to day routine of working the shop.

Georgie Breard has also notified us that she will be leaving as she anticipates the joy of spending quality time with a new grand baby soon to arrive.

While there will be some changes and new faces, our goal is to maintain a high level of service to our customers, to provide a fun atmosphere of camaraderie for sharing our passions, and to provide you with new lines and quality products. While we will continue as before, please feel free to make recommendations that you feel will improve your experience at The French Knot.

Thanks to Leona and Georgie for their dedication and time to the French Knot.


A Sale

Since the finishing deadline for Halloween is July 31, The French Knot is putting all Halloween items on sale.  You can choose a canvas and work it up in time to have it back for “Ghouling Day”.   Stop in the store to view the many Halloween themed items we have. If not Halloween, you’re sure to find something else to stitch.
