Special events!!!

Saturday, November 4th, Shannon Okey, author of "Knit to Spin" is coming to the store. We have the whole day!!! She'll be signing books at noon. At 1 pm is a class in spinning alternative fiber such as bamboo, soy and more. At 4 pm we're going upstairs to Sharon's apartment for dishwasher dyeing. Who knew you could do more with that machine. I may have to get one now.

Sunday, December 10th, Bonne Marie Burns of ChicKnits, will show her sweaters and offer a Tips & Techniques clinic. If you've made a Chic Knits sweater, wear it and show off. If you have one still on the needles or in pieces, bring it in for some help because "The Doctor Is In." We will also start a knit along of Bonne Marie's latest pattern: Ariann.
