Greetings from space! Here’s what has been happening around the shop this week as well as upcoming classes and events.
Ann Budd’s Handy Gauge Rulers
Our Tour de Fleece team is spinning away, but it’s not too late to join in! Pick up some fiber and a spindle or use your wheel at home. We have another spin-in scheduled for Sunday, July 16th from 12-1:30, but you’re also welcomed and encouraged to sit in our lounge and spin whenever you desire.
In this sticky summer weather, lace is the perfect answer! Check out the Brooklyn Tweed Vale trunk show now in space through July 23rd, featuring Brooklyn Tweed’s brand new all-American laceweight yarn. We have the entire color selection in store, so you can browse pattern and yarn ideas all at once.
Have you ordered a Cricket loom from us but need help getting started? Join us on Wednesday, July 19th from 6-7 pm for a free Build a Loom workshop to help you get set up. Be sure to bring the entire loom box and either a screwdriver or power drill.
Join us for a summer of learning. We are offering a variety of workshops throughout the summer to help us improve our skillset. July will be focusing on crochet, with workshops in Tunisian Crochet (Parts 1 and 2), Arches cowl crochet lace and broomstick lace. August features a weekend with designer Ann Weaver. She’ll be offering her No-Sew Zipper workshop, Yipes Stripes workshop (sold out, but give us a call to get on the waitlist) and Fair Isle for All workshop.
The First Hat – Ribbed Beanie class is a great second course after completing the Intro to Knitting Course and gives you a versatile hat that can be styled a variety of ways. Class begins on Sunday, July 16th. $65.
