Happy Thanksgiving! Black Friday and Small Business Saturday

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope you aren’t stuck in traffic, and if you are – you do know you shouldn’t be reading this! I wish you a wonderful day with your family and friends and if by chance you are working (I do know that the whole world doesn’t shut down on a holiday) please take some time to enjoy a good meal, a good laugh and perhaps a moment to reconnect with someone you miss. My family will be enjoying as quiet a dinner the kids will allow. We will certainly enjoy the time around the table and on the couch watching football. We’ll also have some sentimental time saying what we’re grateful for and how we miss so much. At your feast of Thanksgiving, make sure you do the same. Be thankful and joyful!
Friday we’ll have lots to share with you. First we’ll be busting at the doors with our very own, Stitch House Door Busters! We’re not opening early so you have the morning to get yourself to the mall and big-box stores… or just to sleep in. Starting at 10am we’re offering 25% off all fabrics on the bolt, 50% off all books, 25% off The Knit Kit and 25% off Soakbox Kits. We’ll also have some still-not-decided new to clearance yarns. For those, you’ll just have to come in and check it out!
Friday evening, we welcome all to our Annual Pot Luck Post-Thanksgiving Dinner. Bring in your leftovers and enjoy some good company. We have a great buffet set up and loads of fun around the dinner table, chatting, eating, knitting (and crochet) and enjoying a glass or two of wine. If you haven’t joined us for a Friday Night Knit, this is the one time you should come! Join us anytime after 6pm and stay until I kick you out!
Then we have Small Business Saturday! We’re open 10am-6pm and will repeat all the fabulous deals from Friday. I will repeat them here: we’re offering 25% off all fabrics on the bolt, 50% off all books, 25% off The Knit Kit and 25% off Soakbox Kits. We’ll also have some still-not-decided new to clearance yarns which you’ll discover on Friday if you come then!
Sunday you can check-in with Jeanne and her version of Claire’s workshop. Only difference, Jeanne has a crocheted mitten to do with you! She loves these Sweetheart Mittens and want to make them with you – on Sunday, November 25 from 3-5pm. This workshop is $20.
In the next few weeks, Claire is repeating her very well-attended Chunky Mitten Class. this workshop is for those of you who know how to knit and purl and want to move on to your first mitten (or pair of mittens!).  Using chunky yarn, this basic adult mitten will involve knitting and purling on double pointed needles, picking up stitches, decreases and binding off.  Suggested yarns include: Cascade 128, Rowan Cocoon, Queensland Kathmandu Chunky (sample mitten on display).  This workshop costs $20 and does not include materials. You will need approx. 120 yards chunky yarn, US size 10 or 10.5 double pointed needles, Locking stitch markers or scrap yarn for holding thumb stitches and a tapestry or yarn needle. Bring some from your stash or buy them at the Stitch House. Please email us or call 617.265.8013 to reserve your seat for this class. She’ll be playing hostess to you on Sunday, December 2, 3-5pm. If you were at the one last week, you are welcome to attend the second hour at no charge to get any help you need.
Have a wonderful holiday! And, last but not least – thanks to all the Men who came in for our First Men’s Knitting Night!
