Needlepoint Mini Classes!
Fall Leaves 1 - Taught by Nancy Moore

Celebrate fall and learn simple needlepoint stitches to make three decorative burlap leaves. No needlepoint experience is required—class will provide all the instructions, assistance, materials, and fun you’ll need to complete three leaves. No finishing required! When your leaves are stitched they’re ready to add to your fall decorations.

Fall Leaves 1 is the first in a series of classes where students will embellish burlap leaves while learning or adding to their needlepoint skills. In this class, students will learn diagonal scotch variation, oatmeal, and cashmere variation stitches. Stay tuned for information on Fall Leaves 2 & 3.

As COVID-19 conditions improve, we're starting to add small classes to our schedule. This class will only have 2 students per class, so sign up now!

Featured Yarn and Pattern 
Aalta Truth is a Merino Wool/Baby Alpaca blend yarn that is super yummy to work with! It was created in consultation with yarn shops and designers, so it's absolutely perfect for a nice fall cardi. We like the Intemporel Cardi by Rachel Henri (Ravelry link) - 7 Euros (about $8 in-store or on Rav, a crocheted tunic-length cardigan available up to a 50" bust.

Blazing Gavels!
KLRN's 54th annual Blazing Gavels event started today! Normally a live event in June, Blazing Gavels has gone off-trail and is entirely online this year. Yarnivore is a proud supporter of KLRN and we've donated 10 sets of yarn, tools, and lesson certificates. You can use them as gifts for budding crafters or for yourself. (The items are built for beginners but we allow exchanges.)
Support public television and feed your need for crafting at the same time. :)

The Tip Jar

Do you love stitch dictionaries? We do! There's one bit of math you might notice. Many patterns will say "multiple of X plus Y." What does that mean?

It's easy! It means that for the pattern to work out properly, you need to repeat X enough times to make the width, then add Y. So if it says, for example "multiple of 8 plus 2", you would first multiply 8 to get close to the number of stitches you need (so for 6 repeats, you'd do 6x8), then add the extra 2, which would make 50!
Or just stop by the shop and we'll help you with the math.

All classes are currently on hold, due to the San Antonio & Bexar County joint Stay Home/Work Safe order.
