Some Things I Hope You’ll Find Interesting

(excludes full sized stockings, mini stockings with stuffers, New Orleans and select Halloween)

Saturday Snacks and Skills Classes

June 15 — Dealing with Borders (needlepoint).  You can bring in a canvas you are currently working on, or has been neglected because you just don’t know what to do with the edge, or you can take advantage of the sale and pick a new canvas.  The class is $20 and you will be treated to some munchies while you learn.  You can peruse our canvases here.


July 20– Santa Class.  Cost is $150 ($75 due at registration), which includes the canvas, threads, stitch guide, instruction and of course some snacks.  Here are the Santa canvases to choose from.





August 17 — Stranded Knitting.  That is not a class about what to knit when you are stranded.  It is a class on color-work.  Here is an example of stranded knitting.  Cost is $20 plus supplies.

Are there any spinners out there?

Stacey brought her drum carder on Tuesday and our Knotty Knitters had fun trying their hand at something new.  She led us through the process of carding wool.  Olivia just happened in at the right time and got in on the fun.  She was very enthusiastic.
