Greetings from space! Hopefully your stitching has been keeping you company through this steamy heat wave. Here’s what has been happening around the shop this week as well as upcoming classes and events.
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 our final spin-in scheduled for Sunday, July 23rd 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.
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.
Next week’s Stitching Survival Skills Wednesday will focus on the tubular cast on. Drop by on Wednesday, July 26th from 6-6:45 for a free lesson!
