Please Note: The Beaded Row Counter bracelet workshop has been moved to Saturday September 8th, and the Sock Anatomy class will be held at 530 in the evening, instead of 930 in the morning.
Introduction to Knitting Knit101 Hat taught by Joan Cook begins this Saturday morning and we still have a few spaces. Please spread the word to your friends and family who've always wanted to learn to knit that Joan, who is the absolute best Intro Knitting instructor on the planet, has agreed to teach one more class for this year. The class will meet on 3 Saturday mornings in September - the 8th, 15th and 22nd, from 9 to 11am and the registration fee is $65.00. Click here for all the details.

Beaded Row Counter Bracelet: Another class for this Saturday - Saturday September 8th at 4pm. Row Counter BraceletRegistration Fee: $25.00; The Beaded Row Counter Bracelet created in this workshop uses the same counting method as an abacus. You will learn how to make the bracelet and also how to use it. Click here for the general details - this class was rescheduled from last weekend - the date change is not shown on the flyer.
Basic Sock Anatomy: RESCHEDULED TO A NEW TIME:Monday September 10th, Wednesday September 12th and Friday September 14th at 530pm. Registration Fee: $65.00; Diane Lyles will be offering her ever-popular Anatomy of a SockSockParts class for those of you wanting to knit socks for holiday gifts but afraid to begin those patterns that have kitchner and gusset and heel flaps and all sorts of other intimidating sockisms. Let Diane demystify it for you as you knit a sock (possibly a funny sized Sock1 one, but an entire sock nonetheless) in 3 class sessions. While this class was created for first-time sock knitters, it is also great for those who have knitted a few socks and not been happy with them and also for folks suffering from Single Sock Syndrome who haven't found knitting socks to be as much fun as they'd hoped. Diane can make it fun! Click here for the general details - the time change is not shown on this flyer.
Tri-Loom Weaving: Saturday, September 15th or Sunday September 16th, from 4 to 7 pm. Registration Fee: $35.00, plus $10. loom use fee to instructor if you do not own a tri-loom. 3ft Tri-looms may be purchased from the instructor. If you've always been fascinated by weaving but TriLoom overwhelmed by looms with heddles and peddles and shuttles and all that weaving stuff, this is for you. In 3 hours, you can complete a small shawlette - how's that for instant gratification? Click here for more details. These make great gifts just as they are, or you can combine them to make larger shawls or afghans. And you can always move up to a larger loom for larger projects.
Cascade Yarn Tasting: September 29th & 30th
We are going to have a fantastic Yarn Tasting featuring the entire line of Cascade yarns, including the newest ones.
We have two sessions scheduled, on September 29th and 30th. We've still got open spaces in both of them, so come in and sign up, or call the shop and send us a check.
Mike, our Cascade rep,will be here and set up a shop full of yarn tasting stations and is bringing doorprizes (lots of them) as well.
We'll have lots of trunk show models for you to check out and Mike will be here with all of his color cards, so that you can order anything you'd like from their line, even if we don't normally carry it. And we'll have the books that go with the trunk show models.
And yes, there is a registration fee that goes to Animal Rescue. Have I mentioned that we're becoming very popular with the local Animal Rescue groups?
And we are working on a gift bag for each of you with 2 Cascade yarns - a classic and a brand new one and a free pattern to put them together!

We can change our order for about 4 weeks, until the end of September, and add other MadTosh yarns and / or colors as needed.
