Life’s a Stitch!

Have you noticed them?  Those little changes - a cool breeze in the evening, a scatter of yellow leaves on the ground, the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and pumpkin spice lattes?  One of the very best parts of living here is the changing seasons, especially as we head into fall and winter and woolly, cozy knits! We’ve been busily preparing for our fall inventory and boxes and boxes of new and exciting yarns plus re-orders of all of your tried and true favorites are arriving now every day!

There’s so much to share and show you and we are especially excited about the new classes and workshops we have in store for you as the knitting season unfolds. This fall we are getting back down to basics with topics like beginner socks and mittens, and how to fix your stitches. And by popular demand, we are offering a workshop on the little stuffed bunny and friends you’ve all been asking about, just in time for holiday knitting. After the holidays, look for a basic sweater class as well as finishing and blocking classes. And of course, Scheduled Help Table sessions are still running to assist you with any project or technique you may be working on; Learn To Knit classes are available by appointment. Be sure to check out details in this newsletter and online, and check days and times carefully as they may be different now. We hope you can find the time to join us for something you are eager to try!

We've been running our Dizzy Clubs for a few years now and we are changing things up a bit. For this next season, club topics will be based on Michelle Hunter’s fantastic Building pattern book series in Blocks, Color and Lace.  Please note: current club members with time left in their memberships will be contacted to make sure we fit you into a club that meets your needs.  If you aren't a current club member but are interested in joining one, be sure to check out the details for all of our new clubs in this newsletter and online.

Sunday hours are back for the fall-winter season. Beginning Sunday, September 23rd the shop will be open from 12:00pm – 4:00pm.  We hope this makes it easier for you to fit time at the shop into your busy schedule to browse, imagine, plan, play, take a class or just visit with friends.

As we enter our 12th fall season, we want to thank you for making it all possible and tell you how much we appreciate your support.  Without you we would not be here. To all of you we have come to know over the years and to all the new friends we meet each day – you are amazing and you inspire us every time we connect. As always, we love to hear your ideas, wishes, and thoughts. We are always happy to see you, and excited to see the beautiful projects you create.

Bring on the Fall and Happy Knitting for All!!
