Summer knitting means lightweight materials, like linen and cotton. We have lots of options for tees and tanks, baby clothes, blankets, home goods and summer-into-fall sweater knitting. Come in and we will help you put together a project, or pick up one of our kits.
Needlepoint is perfect for summer. We just received new kits, small and large, as well as hand-painted canvases. You'll also find drawers upon drawers of threads, including not only good ol' DMC floss and perle cottons, but also hand-dyed floss from Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Arts and others, plus Paternayan Persian and Appleton's tapestry and crewel wools. Lots of shiny threads, too! (Think Christmas...)
We are offering classes for all levels of knitting this summer, including some wonderful sweater and blanket projects. Needlepoint and embroidery are hot topics, too! As always, private lessons are available at extended times most convenient for you.
Children's classes are by appointment; please call to book. We teach hand and machine sewing, needlepoint, embroidery and knitting to kids age seven and up.
We are currently updating the website calendar, and will have it back up and running soon. In the meantime, please call the shop or stop by for more information. Add your name to our list and we will be happy to email you the whole schedule every semester.
If you're looking for a friendly group to stitch with, join us on Monday mornings 10am-noon, or Thursday evenings 6-8pm. Free! Our newest group meets at 6pm on the First Friday of every month. It'd dedicated to SOCK knitting. More on that in our next post!
