Fiber Socials: A free gathering for knitters, crocheters, and other fiber enthusiasts. Bring a project to work on, or let us help you select one. Enjoy conversation, show off what you're making, and share your knowledge in this community of like-minded crafters. Come and go as you please, there are seats for all.
Classes: Attend a variety of project and/or skill based classes throughout the month. To see more information, including class description, cost, and prerequisite skills, click the "Classes" tab in the menu bar above. Register for classes by clicking the "Class Registration" tab in the menu bar. Please note that all classes require advance registration. Payment is required to save your seat. Many of our classes fill to capacity quickly, so it's best not to delay.
Knit-along (KAL): We offer quarterly sweater Knit Alongs. These begin with a cast on party, and follow up with fortnightly "Support Saturdays" where participants can ask questions and receive free help with the pattern. (We also happily answer KAL questions in the shop between these Saturdays). Each KAL is completed with a "Reveal Party" where participants show off their hard work and we take a group photo and enjoy treats together. We are a "no-shame" shop, and are eager for everyone to attend the reveal, no matter their progress on their sweater.
Shawl Society/Crochet Shawl Society::Shawl Society is part class, part social club, and part KAL or CAL. In both groups, a new shawl is selected every two or three months. The shawls are chosen for their technique, interesting shape or construction, or use of color. We offer one instructional session each month, and the class fee will often cover the pattern. In special circumstances, the customer may need to purchase or download a free pattern on their own. The class fee is adjusted accordingly. Customers get to know one another by attending Fiber Socials and working on their shawls there.
Hat of the Month: Hats offer a great opportunity to try new skills on a small scale. For 2020, we're introducing our Hat of the Month, along with a class to help with tricky parts of each pattern. To participate, pick up yarn, pattern and needles early in the month. Make the hat on your own, or if you're having trouble, attend our HOTM class on the third Saturday of every month. We'll take a group photo (with hat finished or not!) every first Saturday of the following month.
