Thanks to all you crafty folks who have signed up for one of our January classes. A number of our classes are full (Wednesday evening Beginning Knitting class, Saturday afternoon Beginning Quilting class, the Alterations Workshop) but there are openings in other classes (Beginning to Knit – Saturdays; Beginning to Kids and Adults on Thursdays; 2 intermediate knitting classes) and we are hard at work scheduling new classes for February and March. Please keep checking back. As we confirm classes, we will post them. Stay tuned for another Wet Felting class (such a big hit) a Magic Loop class…and more.

We will be posting lots of new projects over the next few days on our project page so keep checking in…

New Awnings + Holiday Hours + More

A round up of JP Knit & Stitch news:

Awnings: Reader, we have awnings. We have been working on this project for many months. Well, one cold Tuesday evening Excel Signs showed up and began installation. We were thrilled. Don’t worry, we’ll still keep putting out our friendly yarn bomb to indicate that we’re open in good weather. But now, when someone calls or wants directions to the shop, we’ll say: “look for the green awnings and you’ll find us.” Yay!

Handmade holidays: We continue to be amazed and inspired by all the handmade projects people are taking the time out of their busy schedule to create. And, it’s not too late for you to make someone something meaningful for the holidays. We have quick knit up scarves, simple hats, cowls. We also have lots of great gifts for the crafter in your life (or for your own wish list). Love a crafter this holiday season with a JP Knit & Stitch gift card, a beautiful knitting, sewing, or crochet book, project bags…we have lots to give!  Stay tuned to the project page of our website for more inspiration.

Classes: We have added January sewing, knitting, and crochet classes. More knitting classes to come, but sign up now and reserve your space.

Blog Comments: Our fabulous web designer, KJ, has made it possible for our readers to comment on posts. Just click on any post and you can comment away. We post photos of our customer projects to inspire you…now here’s your chance to respond.

Holiday Hours: Don’t forget that we are closing on Saturday, December 24th for the holidays.  Our last day of business is Friday, December 23rd. We will re-open Wednesday, January 4th. Mark your calendars…

Embroidery Thread!!!

One of the biggest requests we’ve had since we’ve been open has been for embroidery thread. Well, a big box of beautiful color just landed in our store. Six drawers exploding with color, 120 skeins from the full spectrum of the rainbow. It’s Anchor 6 strand 100% color fast cotton. Open a drawer for a quick blast of color therapy. Get started on elevating your next holiday project with a little touch of embroidery (so charming!).

Happy Thanksgiving from JPK&S

This past Saturday was one of those very special days that teach us so much…We were incredibly busy; with classes (crochet, knitting with wire, and beginning quilting) and lots of wonderful customers:  knitters, sewers, quilters, crocheters – beginners to advanced and all levels in between; grandmothers, daughters, retirees, just married, new parents, young professionals, men and women, all the richness that is community and what we love about having a shop in JP.  We were so busy that there wasn’t the time or space to be with each customer the way we would like.  But you, our fabulous customers/friends/crafters stepped in.  A woman came in wanting help reading an European pattern, and one of you, who’s very familiar with such patterns, helped her.  Another person came in wanting help getting started knitting with round needles, and you, sitting in the chair knitting with round needles, helped her.    I overheard one customer helping another find some yarn on the shelf.  And, at least seven people learned how to use the ball winder. Yes, it takes a Village to run a yarn and fabric store and we are so grateful for you…Happy  Thanksgiving!

The photo below was taken at StitchNight (a great example of community in action!), from right to left: Stefania, Gianfranco, Luisa, Liz, Steven, Tracy, Sarah, and Gina.

Scraps + Chaos

We usually like to feature projects from JPK&S yarn on the JPK&S website, but when this project walked in the shop, we knew it would be selfish to keep it to ourselves. Meet Tracy. Tracy is an avid and self-taught knitter. Like many knitters, Tracy sometimes has trouble finishing his projects. He came in the shop for help weaving in the ends on this incredible blanket he made using lots and lots of very brightly colored yarn from here, there, and everywhere. Seriously, the blanket glowed. I wish we had gotten a real closeup, but you get the picture..big + bright + fuzzy….gorgeous. Tracy also had a trunkful of unfinished projects in his car, one of which he carries around in a Louis Vuitton bag. Yes, Tracy brightened our day. Tracy came by a few days later for StitchNight where he got some more help with finishing from the collective group. Thanks, JPK&Stitchers!
