Coastal Knits Trunk Show

We’ve carried Coastal Knits, a cross-country collaboration of knitting patterns by designers Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig, for a long time. We love the cozy sweaters, gorgeous accessories, and dreamy details in this book, and we are so excited to host a month long trunk show of Coastal Knits samples! This is your opportunity to try on the Rocky Coast Cardigan, see the details on the Little Oak sweater, and be inspired to make your own.

So, through the month of October, as the weather gets cool and rainy, start thinking about sweaters, and stop by the shop to see the Coastal Knits Trunk Show for yourself!

Hello October!

After the hustle and bustle of September (getting back into routines, figuring out schedules…) October is here and we couldn’t be more ready to embrace the season. We are happy to welcome the quilter Joyce Adams for a quilting show to close out the last month of JP Centre South First Thursdays.  On Friday we expand our repertoire with a workshop and talk with Dylan Usher as part of ArtWeek Boston.

Check out all our classes and workshop offerings right HERE.

Kids sewing and knitting clubs are starting this week. Friday Sewing Club is full, but the Thursday Knitting club has a few spots left. Check them all out right HERE.

Thank You Yarn Crawlers!

We’re still reeling from a fabulous four days celebrating the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl! It was wonderful to share the excitement of knitting season with knitters of every level and from all over Greater Boston. We got to share wine (from Streetcar) and cider (just right for the season), show off yarn from Lady Dye, Dirty Water DyeWorks, and Knit Collage, try on designs by Cheryl Kubat, and tell knitting stories with author Ann Hood.

The Greater Boston Yarn Crawl is always a kick-off event for us, so just because it’s over doesn’t mean that we’re taking it easy. We have a full slate of knitting and sewing classes (new sessions for beginning knitting classes start in just a week!) and a bunch of other fun events and workshops, too. And, yes, a few surprises. If you’d like to keep up to date on all the shop happenings, don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter. (Just scroll down a bit; it’ll be on the left under our list of classes.)

Thanks again to everyone who came out for the Yarn Crawl, and happy knitting!
