If you are interested in beginning knitting, we schedule private lessons during the week as well as Saturday mornings before the shop opens. The cost is $30 for one hour of instruction; we encourage groups and offer hourly group rates as well. In one hour of beginning knitting, one can learn how to cast on, knit and purl!
If you would like to be on our mailing list, please click this following link, fill out your information and you will be added! http://eepurl.com/ib3ag We still offer group classes and tell all about them in the almost weekly email!
Give us a call to register for a class!
We are closed only during snow emergencies, Thanksgiving day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day.
Shibui Mix PartyMarch 8th from 5:00-7:00 pm.
or multi-strand knitting gives you the freedom to fashion your own fabrics by
combining two strands or more of any Shibui Knits yarn. Choose similar hues for
subtle tonality or contrasting colors for bolder tweedy statements. All
Shibui yarns are carefully chosen and dyed to work together, giving you infinite
possibilities for every season.
In the mix party you will get a cheat sheet that will illustrate the weights of yarn you get from various yarn combinations. We will have all of the different Shibui yarns on the back table for you to play with, all while enjoying a glass of wine!
Please bring with you lots of needles, or just a few. The possibilities are endless, and lately we love nontraditional gauges, like lace weight on size 6 needles! Want to join us? Call, or stop in and reserve your seat with a $20 deposit. You will get $10 back in store credit to spend that night! The party starts at 5:00 p.m. Natalie will talk to you about mixing, and show some samples and discuss the benefits of combining yarns for the first 30 minutes or so, and after that you are free to try on the latest trunk show and store samples, continue mixing, and browse our extensive inventory of Shibui yarns. We hope you can join us! This event is limited to 12.
Class time off Broadway
We are offering a new concept for several of our fall classes- knitting packages! It takes all the guess work out of what supplies you need for a class. Be sure to come in and pick up your supplies before the start of the class.
The fine print: We reserve the right to cancel a class if we do not have at least three students one week in advance. You must pay to reserve your spot in the class and we appreciate it if you purchase your supplies from us. We will only refund your class fee if we cancel the class.
Do you need extra help after a class is over? Do you need extra help from a project you have purchased from us? If you need more than a few minutes, we ask that you schedule a private lesson.
Knit-a-longs Off Broadway
KALS are free since it is not a formal class, but questions will still be answered!

The Rowan Felted Tweed has arrived!

Natalie is very excited to start this project! We will be holding a KAL for this project the 2nd Saturday of each month (November-August) from 12:00-2:00. Did you see last years blanket ? Click here to see Natalie's almost completed blanket.
Koigu Magique Cloak Knit-a-long!
Starting January 2017
We have this masterpiece in the store in the larger size for you to see, admire, and of course try on! It will be here until mid August. Why did we chose this stained glass cloak as a KAL? So many of us have wanted to knit this for years, but starting it seems daunting, and finishing seems like a figment of the imagination. However, when you break this project down over a years time, you need only knit 12 cubes a month which is totally doable! Many customers have had much success knitting the year long Fair Isle blanket designed by Marie Wallin, together we knitters can sure accomplish a lot!
Use this guide to help you select a class that would most improve your knitting skills:
*Adventurous Beginner (comfortable with CO, BO, knitting and purling)...
**Advanced Beginner (very comfortable with the above plus increases, decreases, and starting to read your knitting)...
knowledgeable of all the above and very comfortable with fixing knitting
Remember: No refunds on classes. Classes must be paid in full to reserve a spot. We reserve the right to cancel a class if less than three (3) people have enrolled. If you cannot attend a class and will require more than ten (10) minutes to make-up what you missed, please schedule a private lesson at our regular rate of $15.00 per half hour.
