Christmas Starts Today!
Christmas in July, we mean!

There are only 26 weeks until Christmas and 24 weeks until Hanukkah! Yeah, it seems like it's half a year away, but that's ONLY HALF A YEAR! You know how every year, you think to yourself, "Next year, I'll start sooner"? It's sooner right now!

To help you get a head start on your Holiday knitting and crochet, we have holiday-appropriate classes throughout the month of July, including holiday decor and gift ideas. We'll also feature Holiday patterns in the newsletter all month long.

Click here to look at our Christmas in July Classes!

Featured Notion
Looking for a lovely project bag? Maybe one that doubles as delicates/laundry bag or way to pack your garments easier? And you can use it as a couch pillow (it's not stash, it's decor)! Check out the GoKnit Pillow bags. Made of organza with a zipper close, we test washed one and it came through beautifully! The three sizes hold a significant amount of yarn (Sm/800g, Med/1,000-1,200g, Lg/1,600g). We've got them in platinum, champagne, and violet. Lovely AND functional, whoot!

The Tip Jar

Here's another storage idea for circular needles: Before putting them away, wind the cord around your hand, then "sew" one point through the loop of cord, sew it through again, and the needle will stay looped for easy storage.
