Saturday is the new Wednesday

Hello All :)

This autumn weather has been amazing hasn’t it?  I love the color and the cool nip in the air is making me feel all wooly.

As most of you know, we have taken a little break from Wednesday night Knit Nights as we reassess what works best for us.  We have come to a decision!! Our weekly FREE knitting/crocheting “Sit & Knit” will now be on Saturdays from 1pm-3pm! After lots of discussion and feedback, we feel this works well for many reasons.  Mostly, it gives each one of us the opportunity to enjoy your company and get inspiration from you all.  :)

This means that Wednesday night Knit Night will no longer be a regular gig, but will open up that opportunity for other events, classes, knit-a-longs, etc.

As I mentioned, this is always FREE, and you have no obligation…come when you can, call ahead or come on a whim, bring your crochet project, knitting, sit and ball yarn, look through patterns, organize your knitting bag…..whatever you want.  This is not necessarily an instructional opportunity, but of course beginners are welcome, assuming you know how to cast on, knit, purl, or crochet, have a basic understanding of patterns, yarn, and gauge.  There is always someone willing to answer a question if you get stuck.  If you are not comfortable with these things, no worries, a beginner class is always an option for you.  Please subscribe to the blog here, follow us on facebook, instagram, or sign our mailing list in the store to make sure you don’t miss out on those opportunities when they arise.  Also, talk to us about private lessons.  And….as always….all are welcome to pop in anytime during our regular business hours (T-F 10-6, Sat 9-3) and relax with your project.  Bring a friend.  :) Stay all day if you want! :)

We are really hoping you will stop in and join us when you can, or every week!  This begins this weekend, Saturday, October 15.  Hope to see you soon! Thanks for reading!!
