We are so grateful to you JP Knit and Stitchers who have been knitting dolls for children in Zambia and mittens and socks for children and adults in Afghanistan! Thank you so much. The deadline for getting these crafty items to the store is SUNDAY, JUNE 30th. We will then pack up the socks and mitts and send them to the Afghans for Afghans people in SF so they can send them on to Afghanistan. Our own Jo Anne Steeves will take the dolls you’ve crafted to Zambia in early July. If you haven’t already been in the store to see these incredibly adorable, cuddly and creative dolls do stop in before the 30th.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who have been knitting for others. They and we are very grateful.

We are thrilled to introduce our first ever summer fiber camp for kids. We’ve had such fun with our afterschool knitting and sewing clubs that we wanted to expand our offerings into summer. We’ve had a blast creating a fun and inspiring slate of morning camps for most July and August weeks (we even have camp for that hard to schedule last two weeks of August!). Here are the details:
THE CAMP: JP Knit & Stitch’s fiber camp is a weekly, morning camp from 9am – 12pm, Monday – Friday, held here in our shop. There are 8 sessions starting the week of July 8th. You can sign up for one or as many sessions as you like. Each week has a different fiber and craft focus: campers can choose from knitting, sewing, embroidery, and felting weeks. Campers can learn to knit their own tank top, design their own clothes, make felted soaps, and lots more. Our summer camps are designed to be Fun + Creative + Crafty.
THE CAMPERS: Campers should be aged 8 and above. Campers can attend the camp without any previous crafting experience.
THE TEACHERS: We are so excited about our line up of teachers. Along with weeks that are run by our wonderful long-term teachers, Allison Nevitt and Diane Ivey, we are thrilled to introduce new teachers to our roster. A number are Mass Art students or grads (we are so lucky to have the only public art school in the country located right down the street from us!) and all have lots of experience working with kids.
THE COST: Weekly cost is $225 and includes all materials.

We will take this moment to celebrate our younger crafters. We have been hosting afterschool knitting, sewing, and embroidery clubs on Thursday and Friday afternoons for two years now. We love it. We have so very much enjoyed having them in our shop! They are crafty, they are fun, they have boundless energy and enthusiasm…and they make it all seem easy!
P.S. Be sure to check out our NEW Summer Fiber Camp for Kids…right here.
