Knitting Fun!

May 31st, 2012

We had a full house for knitting class this past Wednesday evening.  It was so much fun to see everyone knitting, stitching, finishing, visiting and connecting with each other.
We laughed together, felt each others pain as some knitting was ripped out and were inspired by the beautiful work being done all around!

If you would like to join us for regular classes, give us a call at the shop: 508.867.9449
We would love to have you join!

Wall of Wool

April 12th, 2012

Get ready for a new adventure! Discover wool applique and get stitching!

Our wall of  hand dyed wool, threads and patterns has been steadily growing these past few weeks. Our patterns include table runners, pillows, candle mats and some stitchery.  Some are very primitive and others more formal.  It is hard to decide what to do first.

But it’s really all about the WOOL! Oh my, our gorgeous hand dyed wool is from Moondance Color Company. Rich colors, perfectly dyed to create exactly the look we wanted.  Moondance has been dyeing wool for rug hookers and fiber artists since 1981, so we were confident in our choice of their wools. We were not disappointed!

Complimenting the wool are the hand dyed Perle Cotton threads from Valdani.  The rich painted like shading of these threads will enhance your work.

To get it all started, we will be holding a “Stitch Workshop” this Saturday from 1-3:30pm. The response has been unbelievable and we look forward to hosting a monthly workshop devoted just to applique.  If you are unable to join us this time, stay tuned and we will announce future workshops on our blog and Facebook page.

Oh well, we almost got through winter unscathed! Tonight’s snow will force the cancellation of Wednesday evening knitting!
Hope everyone stays safe and warm, and we will start again next week with not only better weather, but a brand new month!
