Winter is almost over, and we're headed for warmer weather. I love this time, since I get to transition from warm-weather fibers and delve into silk, bamboo, linen, cotton and other Spring/Summer friendly yarns. Great things are coming for the upcoming season!
Congratulations! Come in and pick up your prizes!

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. Come join us and learn how to create these little critters! During this three week course, we will learn the basics the first class and choose a pattern from the ones supplied or choose one you've had your eye one for a while! Week two will consist of working on the different parts and understanding how shaping works. Week three will be putting all the different pieces together. By the end of this course, you will be able to create many different critters and have one to show your friends.
Yarn Basics, Part 1 Wed, Mar. 30, 2 & 7pmHave you ever wondered how to use a different yarn than a pattern required? Are you unfamiliar with the weight classifications of yarn, and why they are important to your finished project? We'll answer these questions, and more, in this mini-class. Give your yarn knowledge a boost! Bring a pen and paper.
