New Classes + April/May Events

Welcome to April! We are excited to usher in warmer temperatures and spring events. Please check out all our new and upcoming classes right HERE. We are excited about launching our latest Knitting For Others project. We will be supporting the nonprofit group afghans for Afghans by knitting socks and mittens for the young people of Afghanistan. Please join us this Sunday, April 7, for a open meeting and crafting session for this worthy cause. See all the details right HERE. We are hard at work thinking about how our local crafting community can be involved in the annual Wake Up the Earth festival (the first Saturday in May). Last year we yarn bombed a tree and made tons and tons and tons of fluffy yarn balls with kids at our table at the festival. This year we are thinking of a “Spring Showers Brings May Flowers” theme and are inviting all of you to come to our planning sessions to help think through this community crafting project. Dates + details are right HERE.

Stay tuned for updates on our new Spring yarn + fabrics!!!! We are very excited to debut new lines + new looks.

You stocked up on a sweater’s worth of yarn and a curtain’s worth of fabric. You were smart + crafty shoppers and we celebrate you! See below for scenes from the sale.

Thanks knit collage!

We had such fun hosting Amy from knit collage yesterday afternoon. She spun for us (and our little friends) and even gave her spun yarn away to a few lucky little crafters. We got to see (and try on) some lovely Spring samples, including some amazing summer-y tanks and cover ups in the wonderful Stargazer Silk yarns (coming soon to JP Knit & Stitch), as well as the hot off the press Maharani Silk (also coming soon to JP Knit & Stitch), and the happy Daisy Chain yarns (available now!). Thanks to all who sloshed through the snowy streets to come out yesterday and thanks especially to Amy and her knit collage yarns, warm + sunny + jewel-like…giving us a much needed taste of warmer times ahead.

Next up on the JP Knit & Stitch 2nd BIRTHDAY Calendar:

March 16, 1-4pm, Threadfollower Workshop

March 16, 6:30-9:30pm Seamstress Cassette Release Party
