Need a Bag Lining?
We all love to knit or crochet bags. But many times the bags would be nicer with a lining. Kelora is an excellent tailor and would love to put a lining in your bags. Just bring by your bag for her and she will contact you with the cost of adding a lining to your creation.
Blocking and Felting...
Many times we have heard folks say that they can't felt their project because they have a front-loading washer. Or they know their garment should be blocked, but they are scared to do it. Blocking will smooth out any wrinkles, stretch the garment out to the correct size, relaz the stitches so they are all more uniform and make the garment look and fit better. We can provide these services for you. Just bring in your projects to us for felting or blocking. Cost is $10 per item.
We love to socialize...
It's always great to get together with other crafters while you work on a project. Come bring your spinning wheel, your knitting needles or your crochet hook and your current project to our shop during our social times for an afternoon or evening of pure fiber enjoyment.
- Monday afternoons (1-3 pm)
- Thursday evenings (6-8 pm)
We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, tatting & felting supplies.

A Pop-Up Event...
Many of you will recognize this beautiful face.
Nationally known designer, Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton came to do a workshop at our retreat year before last. She received rave reviews by those who attended.
Well, she's popping back into our shop on Saturday, October 31 to give us a treat and teach us some tricks.
Click here for Cornelia's bio.
From Noon - 1:30 pm there will be a Yarn Tasting and Trunk Show.
For a $10 fee you will get a sampling
of each of 3 Heaven's Hand yarns to try...
- Shaman (100% handpainted Raw Silk handspun from cocoon in a DK weight)
- Silke (100% hand-dipped Indian Mulberry Silk in a worsted weight)
- Sister Silk (100% Mulberry Silk in a DK weight).
Don't miss this rare opportunity to see and try these luxurious yarns and have a chance to purchase yarns and patterns that we don't normally carry.
And there will be lots of different models already knitted using these yarns.
Then from 1:30 - 4 pm, Cornelia will be doing a Geometric Openwork Workshop.
Incorporate vertical columns in your knitting without breaking the yarn!!
While the idea of knitting shaped holes with columns between them may sound exciting, the idea of weaving in ends does not!!!
During this workshop you will learn Cornelia's new Geometric Openwork method for working columns between open geometric shaped in knitted fabric without breaking the yarn!
You will have time to swatch different geometric shapes and the Square Hole Scarf pattern will be provided.
Cost of workshop is $60. But if you take the workshop, then you can get the yarn tasting for FREE!!
A basic understanding of knit and purl is all you need to have!
Bring a variety of needles for worsted weight yarn and everything else will be provided.
Join us as we make a Scoreboard Scarf this year to celebrate our Tennessee Vols.
For every point that UT scores, just knit or crochet a row of orange. For every point that their opponent scores, knit or crochet a row of white. Then knit or crochet a row of grey to separate out the quarters and two rows to show the end of the game.
At the end of the season you'll have a unique scarf that shows all the exciting games that the Vols played this season.
Everyone who makes a Scoreboard Scarf will be entered into a drawing for a prize!!
It's not too late to come purchase your orange, white and grey yarn and get started!
