Thank you!!!!

We can’t thank everyone enough for the outpouring of birthday wishes on Saturday. Was it the champagne (from our lovely neighbors down the street at StreetCar Wines)? Was it the delicious cupcakes (from our crafty in-a-foodie-sort-of-way neighbors across the street, Quesqueya Bakery)? Was it the raffle (stay tuned for our winners!)? the Customer slideshow? Whatever brought you out, you came in droves and hung out and let us take pics of your crafty finery and for that we say…thank you! Thank you for inspiring us all year!  Check out all the photos from our party on our Facebook page right here.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for rest of our birthday month of fun:

More Winter Weather!

In spite of winter weather, we will be open our normal hours tonight (until 8pm)! Stop by if you need some snowy night crafting supplies.

Due to the surprising amount of snow, however, we have had to cancel all Knit & Stitch classes for today/tonight.

Stay warm and stay crafty!

March Classes and Small Changes

We can’t believe how quickly 2014 is already speeding by! We’re getting ready for our third anniversary this March with a bunch of events, workshops (like Sock and Cable knitting), new merchandise, and, of course, our annual sale. Keep an eye on our website and in the shop for more details soon, and keep your calendars open!

Speaking of calendars, have you seen our class calendar? You might notice that March looks a little bit different. We’re changing the way classes are listed on our website calendar. Now, only the first session of each class will appear on our calendar, instead of every session of each class.

How will this affect you? It will make it easier to see what classes are coming up! From the calendar, you can see the start dates for all of our upcoming classes. We’ll continue to label our One Day Workshops as…One Day Workshops (like our March 1 Day Workshop: Learn to Crochet! Crash Course). Anything that doesn’t have that phrase in its title will have more than one meeting. Click on a class title or hover over the class to see when it meets.

We’ve also added an “alumni” section to our popular Weekend Beginner Knitting class. So, if you’ve never taken a knitting class before, you can register for Weekend Beginner Knitting, and if you’ve already learned to knit in a JP Knit & Stitch Class, you can take Weekend Beginner Knitting for Alumni. Just like our Wednesday Beginning to Knit and Beginning to Knit for Alumni, students work together to improve their knitting skills. And remember, if a class has a month in its title, it’s a recurring class. (So if you miss this session, don’t worry! We’ll schedule another one soon.)

Winter Olympics! Valentine’s Day!

We have two great workshops lined up to celebrate February in all its glory (well, among lots of other great classes!). The Winter Olympics just started in Sochi and we are thrilled to combine our love for Winter in all its glory and the knitting technique known as Colorwork in all its glory along with our LGBT community. Whew, that’s a lotta love. Click here to check out this fun workshop (and see the sample below). Valentine’s Day is soon upon us, why not send your little (or big) one to this fun Embroidered Card Workshop with Kate? SO Sweet. Check out all our wonderful classes right here. Happy February, all! – JPK&S

And We’re Back!

We are open and the snow is looking quite picturesque from in here! Swing by and pick up a cozy project, or just hang out and craft with us for a while.

We will be starting this month’s session Beginning to Knit as usual. There’s still a couple spaces if you’d like to sign up.
