Amazing Threads: Events, Classes, & Inspiring Fall Knits


 



It's the middle of October and the Fall Colors are in full bloom.  What a beautiful site the leaves are this season.  Fall is closely followed by the holidays.  Its time to start your holiday knitting.  We have LOTS of inspiration at the shop and many new samples, including the Shibui Trunk Show through Friday and the MANY garments Jane is bringing with her for classes and the Fashion Show.



Please join us Friday, either 2-4 pm or 6-8 pm for our Shibui Yarn Tasting (15% OFF Shibui Yarns Friday) and knit on their yarns.  On Saturday, Jane will host a fashion show along with a meet and greet 4:30-6:30 pm.

This weekend is your opportunity to meet Sandy from Shibui and Jane from SigKnits.  Both Jane & Sandy will be available for color and project consultations. 

   

Wow - Sandy and Jane mixing with our customers and sharing their expertise..What Fun and a once in a lifetime experience.
