We’ve Fallen Hook, Loop and Shuttle!

Our fall class schedule is bigger and better than ever! From beaded mitts and shawls to Baby Surprise Jackets, from woven textures to glorious stranded colorwork and everything in between, fall is THE time to pick up your favorite tools and play with yarn!

We’re especially excited to welcome the charming and unbelievably talented Brandon Mably (from the Kaffe Fassett Design Studio) for a one-day color workshop on October 21. It will be a unforgettable experience exploring the subtleties of color with a master–register today! The shop will be closed to the public on Tuesday, October 21 to accommodate this workshop.

More chances to enjoy Rowan’s fantastic fall style: Get an up-close and personal look at their best fall sweaters with our Rowan Fall Preview and Yarn Tasting on October 4 and 5; join us to knit-along an exuberant Kaffe Fassett afghan or pillow starting October 7.

Open Knit Night is back every Tuesday evening starting September 9, from 6 – 8 p.m. Take a couple of hours for yourself each week and knit or crochet with our friendly group.

Please note: new shop hours started August 1. We’ll be closed on Mondays, giving us a day to catch up on administrative tasks and plan for exciting fall projects. And we’ve added a few extra hours through the rest of the week to make it more convenient for you to shop!

Be the first to learn about new yarns, sales and classes! Sign up for our email newsletter–we do not share our list with anyone. You can also find us on Facebook and Ravelry.
