Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I do love Christmas with the kids and all those festivities… but Thanksgiving is my favorite! I spend the morning preparing, cooking and chatting. My family comes over, we enjoy a great meal and then we share what we’re thankful for! After it all, we watch some football and scan the sales circulars for all the good sales the next day. It isn’t a fancy celebration, but it is a good chunk of time that we simply are together and relaxed. However you celebrate the day, I hope you have a nice one.
After all the Turkey is done, consider spending Friday evening with our annual Pot Luck at Friday Night Knitting. Bring in some leftovers to share. It has become a nice Stitch House tradition… and another tradition is Small Business Saturday. You can go shopping in the big box stores Friday and get a few good deals, but Saturday, it is back to supporting your local businesses. I hope you will make it in. We will have a few specials Friday and Saturday. Come on in!
We will be closing at 6pm Wednesday and closed for Thanksgiving Day. We are open Friday 10-8pm. We will close early on Christmas and New Year’s Eve at 3pm and be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

MORE Sewing Classes!
Get to Know Your SEWING MACHINE is a 2 hour workshop to familiarize yourself with either your personal sewing machine, or ours. We’ll introduce you to the machine, including turning it on, threading it, learning the basic stitches and functions, and caring for it. You will leave this session feeling good about your beginner skills, a handy packet of information to use at home and a starter project for your first sewing class with us. Even if you aren’t taking a sewing class with us, this is a great opportunity to learn a few basics. If you are bringing your own sewing machine, bring all the pieces and the manual (if you can find it!). If you don’t own a machine, come get to know our machines. This workshop also includes taking your measurements, picking appropriate patterns and how to select fabrics and notions. Wednesday, Dec 10, 6-8pm. OR Saturday, Dec 13th, 10am-12 noon. $30.
