Friday the 13th! and other things related to a Yarn Shop!

Happy Friday the 13th! I hope you’re not at your desks, and if you are the AC is cranked… otherwise the rest of your should be lounging on a hammock or at the beach reading this on your phone or tablet. Me, I’m obviously at the shop but trying to make some good plans for a cool afternoon with the boys. This morning we have a good showing for our first Bang-In Friday event. We made this very cute reversible bag by Novia Estiti (check it out and make one on your own) in our great fabrics. We’ll also be posting pictures of our finished bags on Facebook so take a look at what we did! If you want to try this and couldn’t make it this morning, I’ll be here later tonight from 6-8pm if you want to try one for yourself. The project and workshop is $20 and includes materials.
If you’re really desperate to get sewing (or even not that desperate) join us tomorrow for sewing from 10-2 with Elizabeth. This is a two week class that runs Saturday, July 14 and July 28 from 10am-2pm and is perfect for those who have never sewn, are new to sewing or need some extra help. The class is $75 for both Saturdays, but you can split it if you can only come one, and pay half price. Please call and reserve your space now! 617-265-8013.
If you need another excuse to visit don’t forget that all Classic Elite Yarns are on sale for 40% off the entire month of July. That is 40% off Firefly, Sanibel, Soft Linen, Fresco, Silky Alpaca Lace, Sprout, Seedling, Montera, Portland Tweed, Alpaca Sox, Giselle, Pirouette and Katydid. As I write this I am realizing what a great sale this really is! While you’re at it – take 25% off all Classic Elite books.
We’re also returning to last Summer’s successful Summer Sunday Workshops. This Sunday, July 15 you’l l have two to pick from! Jeanne is running a crochet flowers workshop from 1-3 … $5 fee and/or you can come sew with me and make a beach cover-up like this one. This workshop will be from 3-5pm, includes materials for $20. Please register for the afternoon session so I bring enough materials!
In two Sundays, on July 29 Claire will be running a workshop to make her very beautiful and highly acclaimed Gradient Cowl from Shibui Knits. This cowl requires some planning so come in and check out the colors, and get your balls wound! I attached a flier with more details. This workshop will be from 1-3pm and is free with purchase of materials.
In August we’re taking reservations for our full day kid camp. This week runs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 14, 15, 16 from 10-3pm. Send your kids to knit, sew and craft with us! 
That’s it for this week! I hope to see you soon…perhaps tonight for our usual Friday night knitting and crochet group!
