Need knitting/crocheting help on your project...
Just call the shop and see when we'll have room in one of our Weekly classes.  It's just $15 and our teachers can help get you back on track with your project.

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 (1-4 pm)
  • Thursday evenings (6-8 pm)

We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, tatting & felting supplies.
We also have over 500 unique buttons.

April/May Project-a-Long...

For April & May we are going to begin knitting the Lizard Ridge afghan.  This is a fun project that is full of color and fairly easy to do.  Just pick out 10 skeins of Noro Silk Garden Lite (all the same colorway or all different) and size 8-47" circular needles.  We'll show you how to do the short-rows and you'll be amazed at how the different colors play off of one another.  There's even a crochet version, but you'll need about 13 skeins of yarn and size F hook.  Come join us on Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm as we work on our Lizard Ridges together!!
Market Days...

Our next Market Days will be May 4—May 16.  Market Days are days when you get to bring in your unwanted items for knitting, crocheting,  spinning and weaving and sell them in  exchange for store credit.  Cost is only $5...no matter how many items you bring in.  Click here to print out a sheet of market day tags to fill out.  Be sure to put your initials in the corner so we’ll know who sold each item.  Then put each item in a Ziploc bag along with the tag.  Bring in the items you wish to sell during April 27—May 2.  On Monday, May 18 you can come by and get any remaining items as well as your store credit certificate.  Items bought during our Market Days need to be paid with cash or a check.  There are   always some great buys during our Market Days, so be sure to come take a look and find some great treasures.
