This week we prepare for Thanksgiving and reminding ourselves that all of us are special and have the ability to do good. During the campaign I had the opportunity to meet with a group of women who live and receive services at Rosie’s Place in Boston. I discovered they have a weekly yarn giveaway for their clients! This is a great opportunity for us to help. Between now and December 1st please bring in your extra balls of yarn and we’ll get them to Rosie’s. Please consider acrylic and washable blends. For every ball. you’ll get a coupon for 10% off on a future sale. Thank you.

To celebrate the season ahead the success I’ve had this Fall, I welcome you to Small Business Saturday, November 28. All day we’ll have specials (our own Black Friday-like) and goodies, giveaways and munchies. This is my way of making up for a not-so-fun Anniversary Party this past September.

In the meantime we have a lot happening this weekend. Debbie Kalenty Quilting weekend and Sewing 1010 tomorrow. Call with questions, email with suggestions, come in to be with us!

As per usual, Friday Night Knitting around the table tonight!

I hope to see you –

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. $30 for one session.
