Lots of Great Crocheting and Knitting Classes Starting Right Now!

And running all the way into December. Do you  need ideas for your holiday gift giving. These classes and workshops will help you out.

There will not be another Intro Knitting class before the end of the year, so if you are interested in learning to knit, call the shop and set up some private lessons. Our staff will be happy to help you get started.

Lots of new classes.....
We've got crochet and knitting classes and a lot of one or two session workshops to get a head start on holiday gifts. Click on the class names to get all the details.

Crochet Along Afghan: this is an ongoing workshop that will meet several times a month, at the request of some of the current participants. Feel free to join in any time; there are Tuesday sessions and Saturday sessions. Unlike our regular classes,  you don't have to come every time. Sharon is the instructor and she can probably bring you up to speed as far as what you you need, so give her a call. She is in the shop most weekday afternoons, and closes most Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Weaving Sticks : the flyer has the wrong dates; this workshop is scheduled for Saturday Nov 8.

and last, but certainly not least, Artfelt Felted scarfThe dates on this flyer are also incorrect, call the shop to check. The next newsletter will have corrections, but some of these classes start this week, and we wanted to get the word out to everyone.

We may have a few more classes, or workshops scheduled, but we will not have another session of Intro Knitting before the end of the year. Private lessons are available for Knitting or Crochet.
2014 Wounded Warrior Shawl Project 
has been a huge success. We have over 2 dozen beautiful scarves, shawls and wraps, being blocked and packed up for delivery to the local Semper Fi group. Like last year, they will give our contributions to female wounded warriors and to spouses and caregivers of male wounded vets to wear to the Semper Fi formal event in November. 

If you are still working on shawls, feel free to drop them off at the shop, there will be a need for more next year. If you didn't make one yet, you can still make one (or more) and donate it. We still have some vendor donated yarns we can sign out to you.

To everyone who contributed this year, thank you thank you thank you.

Shop Sale
We have had some general inquiries, but no one has made a commitment yet, so if you are considering a career change, want to be your own boss, want to make your beloved hobby more than just a hobby, or just don't want to see Huntsville without a real local yarn shop, send me an email, or call me to talk about the possibilities. Shop staff can give you my direct office phone number.

The shop has been listed through a business broker, but I would rather sell it to someone who loves yarn and knitting / crocheting / spinning / weaving, in other words, a fiber enthusiast.

I have made some slight changes to the closing schedule. If the shop is not under contract with a buyer by the end of the year, we will remain open throughout January, cut back to 3 or 4 days a week in February, and then close down at the end of the month. There will NOT be a going out of business sale. Remaining inventory will be journalled into an online shop and sold that way.
