We had an incredible time last weekend with Stephanie Pearl McPhee, AKA the Yarn Harlot. We learned, we laughed… and maybe a few cried. I hope those who joined us, got much out of the sessions. Please share your reflections either in the comments or on Facebook!

Now we’re on to the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl. Starting today we’ll have specials, guests and a few items on deep discount!

Thursday night, guests from the “Third Piece” yarn company will be with us from 6-8pm.

On Friday, Amy from Knit Collage will be hanging out at Friday Night Knitting from 5-7pm. I’ll be there too! So let’s have some CAKE! If you’ve celebrated a birthday since March (It has been that long since we’ve done b-days) come in between 5-7pm and we’ll have a small gift for you. Please RSVP so we have enough cake! We’ll blow out the candles at 7pm.

On Saturday, Sara Wolf will be in to demonstrate making Thrums from 3-4pm.

Our class list is is updated for the Fall including 101, 102 and skills classes in Knitting, Crochet and Sewing. We’ve also added a kids knitting class for Sundays on October 11, 18, and 25 from 2:00-3:30 pm.

We are now open on Mondays! If you are registered for any of our knitting or sewing classes, you are welcome to join us for Monday Opening Knitting/Sewing with Carrie & Camille. Please pre-register because space is limited.
