Need knitting/crocheting help on 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.
We have Market Days
3 times a year. Click on the logo above to print out your tags.
Kelora's Trunk Show...
We have some wonderful in-house designers. This week (through March 5), come check out the designs of Kelora Goethe, one of our teachers. She has both knitted and crocheted designs that will be featured. All of her patterns are available on Ravelry, but we'll be glad to purchase them for you.
National Crochet Month...
March is National Crochet Month. The project we will be working on together in March is the Tangier Wildflowers Shawl using 3 skeins of Cascade Tangier yarn. Come join us on Wednesday afternoons as we work on this gorgeous shawl together. (If you are a knitter, you can join us as well. Just pick out a shawl that goes with the Tangier yarn...like the Quaker Yarn Stretcher.)
Spring Yarn Tasting...
On Saturday, March 28 we will be having a spring yarn tasting. Come sample our new spring yarns and get 10% off your purchase of any of our new yarns. We'll have sample models made out of our new yarns and ideas to inspire you for your spring/summer knitting and crocheting.
On Saturday, April 18 from 10 am—4 pm we’re celebrating alpacas! We’ll have some alpacas here in the parking lot for you to bring the kids out to see and pet. We’ll also have bags of alpaca poop for sale as well as all of our alpaca roving will be 10% off...both by the pound and by the fleece. Starting April 1 we’ll begin taking orders for the alpaca poop. Just call the shop and let them know how many bags you need. A 40# bag is only $6.00 and will give you a wonderful fertilizer for your vegetables or flowers this summer.
