Newsletter and Calendar for June to September

The newsletter and calendar for the months of June to September are now available for viewing at the links to the right. There are some fun events this summer! We'll be having a Hidden Gems sale three weekends in June that feature yarns that TY employees love, but seem to stay hidden on the shelves. We also will be having a store-wide sale in July (formerly Beat the Heat).

Our spinning instructor, Lisa Rose, is ready to teach you how to spin this summer! She can teach both drop spindle and wheel methods, and you can rent one of our spinning wheels to gain confidence before investing in a wheel of your own. Just call the shop to set up a time for your spinning lesson.

Lisa also is offering a Felting Class for Kids in June and for adults, the chance to weave a handtowel on a larger loom in August. See the newsletter for complete details!

Fiber artist Gika Rector is offering her popular Nuno Felting class several times over the summer. This is a fun class to do with a group of friends!

Classes on the calendar taught by the TY staff include a Short Sleeve Summer Cardigan and Entrelac Scarf, and a new set of technique classes for different levels of knitters. The classes are focused on overcoming different fears knitters may have. For beginners, there is a Fix It class focused on reading the knitted stitches and repairing common beginner mistakes. For intermediate knitters, there is an Afterthought Pocket class in which a pocket will be added to an already knitted piece by snipping the yarn, unraveling it and picking up the live stitches. For more advanced knitters, there is a Cable Repair class involving dropping the stitches that form a cable, reversing the cable and knitting the stitches back up.

Our regular classes remain on the calendar including Beginning and Advanced Knitting, Beginning Crochet, Socks 101, Knit in the Round Hat, Rigid Heddle Weaving, and First Lace Shawl.

Remember that private lessons are always available for all knitting and crochet projects and techniques! And our Sit and Knit area is always available to you any time we are open.
