SpinKnit Stitching Bee

First & Third Thursdays of Dec, Jan, Feb and Mar - 5:30 - 8:00

Whether you want to grab your wheel or your knitting needles, some hand stitching or crochet or whatever project it is that you are working on, you are welcome to come on over the first Thursday & Third Thursdays of Nov & Dec and join me and others for a social "stitching Bee". And better yet, grab a friend and bring him or her, too!

I'm going to use these evenings to channel my Viking ancestry (there must be some in there!) to complete an Icelandic project I'm working on. So some months I may be spinning and other times combing to separate tog and thel....the next maybe knitting or trying my hand at nalbinding again. I may even pull out the cards and do some tablet weaving. Anyway - you get the idea: bring whatever project you are working on at the time.

Anyway, I'll be in the workshop from 5:30 - 9 on the first Thursdays of each month.... so anyone who wants to come and join the comradery of others crafting, is welcome. I will have out refreshments. I am happy to offer a bit of advice if someone is stuck or confused on their project - but this is not a class.


Spring is in the Air Needle Felt Event

10 - noon Sat March 10th

Whether it is Easter, March Madness, the Solstice, gardening or St. Patty's day that you are celebrating this month, stop on by the morning of Mar 17th and needle felt yourself a momento of the season!

I'll have out fiber, a styrofoam egg per person to needle felt an Easter Egg a la Ukranian approach - and I'll have out stencils of 4 leaf clovers and lots of green fiber if you want to needle felt yourself a little pin to show your support for St. Patty's day! And if you want to use your imagination and needle felt a flower (as I did years ago to fill the store window boxes), then I'll have pipe cleaners out for you to use for stems.

The fibers will be odds and ends of colors left over from classes this winter - so there is no fee for this. Just an opportunity to shed the cabin fever and spend some creative time with other "fiber people"!

But remember - you do need to register in advance because space is limited!
