We have classes scheduled!! If you love classes and are ready to learn new techniques, look at our calendar, and choose a class! There is a "duffer" class starting on January 17, that is fun! We just received a brand new shipment of wool from Brown Sheep! Beautiful colors and great texture. The felting technique is so much fun to learn! It's easy and fun to watch the wool change from yarn into a beautiful solid fabric!
Its a chameleon for sure! What a wonderful gift it is for us to use. Once you learn how easy it is to knit or crochet a pattern and then add a little hot water and wala!! You have a whole piece of fabric that can be manipulated into just about anything you can think of! Shoes,purses,bowls,jackets,hats,jewelry,covers.. just to name a few...And it can be decorated on top of that!!! Agh!! Overload!!! Did you hear the warning tone going off in my head?? That's what happens when I think of all the things I can do with felted items! That's what creativity is all about, its what YOU can imagine. Don't be put off by thinking you can only do whats been done, do what is in your mind! Classes are also a way to connect with people you haven't met. Sharing in learning something is one of the most rewarding things in this world. Class sizes are limited, usually 6 is the limit for this felting class. Call the shop and get your name on the list, you can pay when you come in, but be sure and pick your colors for your project fairly soon, as we don't have more than five of each color!. See you soon, and have a wonderful weekend, Linda and I will be heading to Phoenix this friday for our first TNNA convention. This is one of the years largest Needle arts conventions for retailers.We are excited to see and learn what is new and exciting for the knit and crochet community. Looking forward to sharing with you all the fun and beautiful new trends this has to offer! Duane and Josh will be at our shop, helping with all your needs, please come in and be at home. Love to you all, and see you next week!
I am just a simple knitter who is living the dream of running a yarn store, where beautiful yarn is turned into wonderful products and friendships are knit together just as wonderfully! I hope to just share my joy of fiber arts and the joy of sharing with you, as well. Enjoy!
