Greeting from space! Here’s what has been happening around the shop this week and upcoming classes and events.
Blue Highway Hand Dyes TexRanch from one of our former yarnistas Sarah!
Debbie Bliss Eco Baby Prints and two new colors of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino! Both yarns are sport weight and come in at 136 yards, meaning that you can easily swap one for the other. Since they’re both superwash and super soft, they’re just perfect for kids stitching! We’ve also received Baby Cashmerino 5, Baby Cashmerino 6 and Eco Baby Prints books packed with great project ideas.
Help up make our video! We have a film crew coming to film the shop and customers and would love to have a lively hoppin’ Stitch in Space! Please consider coming to hang out anytime during the day. Be sure to wear your favorite finished objects as well in case you’re featured in the video. We’ll also have snacks and wine as well!
