We try to offer a wide range of free events here for those interested in either learning more about a topic, trying out something new, or simply socializing with other fiber fanatics!
As we schedule such events, they will be added here on this page. Scroll down for details.
Mosaic Knit-a-Long-Wed Oct 5th 6:30 - 8:00
If you're interested in trying some mosaic knitting and want to have some guidance reading the patterns and working from a chart for them, you're welcome to join me on this Wednesday evening in October to get off on the right foot!
As for other "events" I offer, I appreciate it if you would register - even tho' it is free and there is no charge. Since if I've chosen dates or an event that people can't make or aren't interested in, then if nobody registers the week before, I know I have the evening free to make other plans! So if you plan on joining me, you need to email or call to let me know 8 days beforehand (since I cancel the morning of 7 days ahead of time if nobody has registered).
I'll have several patterns out for you to try that could be just a "swatch" or could become a scarf or cowl, placemat or trivet!

Swan Island Trunk Show - Sat Oct 1st
Stop by the store during this week to see an assortment of garments on display, each knit using one of the lovely yarns by Swan Island. On this Saturday, Oct 1st, I'll be offering several fun promotional items and a Trunk Show discount when you purchase the yarn to knit one of the garments in the Show!
Shibui Knits Yarn Tasting Mixer-
Sat Oct 15th 10 - 12
Join me on this Saturday morning for a "yarn tasting mixer" of the Shibui Knits yarns.Their new pattern book featuring some elegant patterns for these three yarns is coming out in early October so I've created this opportunity for you to come try the yarns out. Bring your needles and grab a friend. I'll have each yarn wound off into "sample" skeins and we'll put them thru their paces using them independently as well as combined in different ways (like many of the patterns in the book). So you'll have a chance to feel how luscious they are to work with and experience the kind of fabric/drape they create at different gauges and in different combinations and in different stitches!
As with all the other events, pre-registration is required and the event is cancelled a week ahead if nobody is registered.
First Friday Clearance Bins
NOTICE - the dates below are the dates for the First Friday.....unless something comes up, in which case you should check our Facebook page or the home page of the website on the Wednesday before the Friday just to double check (since something could come up).
Friday Sept 2nd - a slight variation on the usual First Friday! Since I won't be here to keep things easy for those manning the store while I'm away, instead of putting lots of odds and ends in the backroom, I've left Price Cards with Neysa to place on the bins of several yarns that I'm clearning out - so come on by and wander the store to find the steals and deals! These yarns will be priced at $3 - $5/skein to clear them out of here!
Friday Oct 7th
