Here’s one to make you think outside the box. This is a knit-a-long, (read no fee class) of one skein projects. Every other week a new idea, make a gift long before you need it. We’ll tell you what size needles to bring, buy one skein of yarn here at the shop before you see the pattern. Surprise yourself putting together the unexpected. Call for needle size before you come. Free
July 11 and 25 Wednesday
Stop in anytime on mystery Wednesday
Bring your most annoying UFO (UnFinished Object) to work on, and join us for lunch. We will have a drawing for a tool bag at the end of August for everyone who has completed their project.

If you will be here for lunch either come before 11:30 or let me know by then, the shop will buy the pizza.

Snugs and Hugs A charity knitting/sewing group that will meet at the shop the 1st Thursday of the month at 10:00. New members are welcome. This group will make and donate items to groups in our area. We are accepting donations of yarn and fabric to support their work.
Children are welcome at our groups as long as they are working on a project and not disruptive.
While everyone likes to share, we need to limit yarn “give aways” to special times and events. For instance we might want to set up a yarn exchange day, and use it for a fund raiser. There cannot be random “give aways” at the shop, it can cause hurt feelings and might make people feel left out.
