Lauren's class is very special- we don't get her very often and we are quite fortunate when we do. She will offer up any of her felted bag patterns for you to use- such as her messenger bags and her Mary bag. The New Dani Clutch is quite special as well.
After class you will have an opportunity to purchase additional Galway for another bag at a very specail discount price set for the class participants only.
In early April, Lauren will be back for a needle felting class. Get your felted bag done now so you will have a "canvas" for your needle felting!
Tuesday March 27 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Jan's class on the couch
|Road to China Light Scarf|
This week Jan will continue the Chose your Shawl class! Jan is conducting a bit of a knit along, and everyone can choose their own shawl to knit (or crochet). Check out our wall of shawls or bring your own pattern ideas. Bring suitable needles and yarn, or pick out a great new yarn at the shop.
I suggest you check out the new Spring Knitty (go to Knitty.com). They have several new free shawl patterns.
This week, if you have finished your shawl, try our little
bunny- just in time for Easter. Bring size 6 or 7 double points, we have the yarn and the patterns available- all nicely packaged in a little kit.
Here is the bunny that Jan knit- out of Baby Alpaca Brush from the pool
Wednesdays continuing March 28 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Spud & Chloe
Ok its time to make Chloe now!
Meet Chlo�. Her bright, shiny personality comes to life as you stitch her adorable blue jumper and red Mary Jane shoes, and create her gorgeous red ponytail.
