Lauren Loeffler is coming back again next week- for a class on needle felting. This class always sells out fast, so call and get signed up soon. You will want to have a felted bag or bowl to needle felt onto.
If you don't have a canvas already, you can purchase a small "blank" zippered bag to use. These are really cute.

This week: Eileen's classes.
Everyone just adores the Linen Stitch Scarf knit in Koigu. We have come up with a fast way for you to learn to work the Linen Stitch with ease- by making a bookmark! In any of Eileen's classes this week- knit up this project while gaining the expertise to do the scarf. Bring about 10g of a sock yarn- or use one of our 10g balls for only $1.00 ( while they last).
Dottie's Linen Stitch Scarf is so pretty, it has enticed so many people to try it! Now try a bookmark first to learn the method.

NEW Beginner crochet class with Amy
Next week Amy will be working on an afghan square called the Alternate Puff Stitch square. This can also be a great washcloth. Bring some Fantasy Naturale (or the worsted weight yarn of youre choice) and a size H hook.
This is one of the fastest growing classes we have. Amy is terrific and she is showing how much fun crochet can be!
ALSO- please note... Amy encourages all to work on a crochet project of their own choice. The featured project of week is just a suggestion- and its usually a fun one too.
Saturday April 7- 10:00 - 12:00 with JoAnne

Next week Linda will be starting to teach a new sideways scarf/cowl knit in Feather & Fan.

Monday April 9-- 10:00 - 12:00 pm
Class with Jackie
Jackie is going to start working on an Entrelac scarf next week- using weither our new Ayatori or Silk Garden Lite. Bring size 6 needles.
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 pm Continuing April 12
We have started a men's class! Joe- a local knitter, Pints & Purls attendee, and raveler has agreed to lead the class. So calling all men- whether you are a knitter or a crochetter- please give this new group a try. Please call to sign up. Bring any current project, and we will see where we go from there.
NOTE from Joe:
Joe would really like to do a group project. His idea is to try felted house slippers (big felted socks). These can easy for those who are beginners, or embellished with cables or Fair Isle to challenge those who are more advanced knitters.
