Friday Night Cravings Returns
And other schedule changes...

Are you missing social time with your fiber friends? Not any more! Starting on Sept. 9, we'll be staying open until 7 pm on every 2nd Friday for our Friday Night Cravings Sit & Stitch! 

There will be a few changes: We won't be serving snacks, out of an abundance of caution. You are welcome to bring your own covered drinks. Bring any craft you like and sit and stitch. Masks are encouraged but not required.

As well as staying open late one Friday a month, we will also be remaining open until 7 pm EVERY Thursday, for classes and shopping!

May you love everything you make!

a slender white woman with short brown hair stands with her arms hanging at her sides and her head lowered in front of a white-painted brick wall. She is wearing a handknit tee with ridges every inch and a color gradient from navy at the top through mustard in the middle, ending with light blue-grey at the hip. She's also wearing a khaki skirt. It appears to be a sunny day and her face is in shadow.

Featured Yarn & Pattern
Here's a cute Tee pattern for gradient yarns like Scheepjes Whirl:
The Wilson Top by Allyson Dykhuizen (Ravelry Link) is knit in one piece from the top down, with yarnover increases in the yoke and concentric ridges of purl highlighting both the construction and the color changes of this cute top! All sizes (34¼"- 57¼" bust circumference) use only ONE cake of Whirl! The pattern is available for $6 in-store or on Ravelry!

The Tip Jar

Do you make stuffed animals? Do you get frustrated when their heads are too floppy?

Try making a "spine" of stuffing: Using regular fabric, sew a tube a little narrower than the neck opening, and long enough to reach from the center of the head to the center of the back. Stuff this tube VERY FIRMLY. Insert this "spine" so that it goes up halfway into the head and down halfway into the body, and the fill in the rest of the head and body with the regular amount of stuffing. Now the head won't wobble!
