Happy 2015!

Wow. 2015. We really can’t believe that the new year is here and how quickly it all went down in 2014. The year just flew by! Looking back, we can say that we supported lots and lots of handmade goodness this past year – for which we are very grateful. We graduated many new knitters into the world and many new sewers too: lots and lots of lovely pillows were made throughout the year in our Sewing Crash Course; many wonderful garments made from the huge array of emerging indie designers (including our own Taylor of blueprintsforsewing); along with socks, sweaters (that first sweater class keeps filling up!), mittens, and much more. Thanks to all of you who took the time to learn a new skill or hone an old one and went on to make many beautiful things for yourselves and your loved ones this year. We just love sending someone out into the world with the raw materials to make something beautiful! We are thankful for all those who come into the shop to thank us (!) for being there and we say…right back at you! Here’s to a wonderful and crafty New Year 2015! xoxox – jp knit & stitch

Happy (almost) New Year!

It’s nearly New Year’s Eve, so our thoughts are turning to all things sparkly, especially this simple cowl that combines mohair Ito Sensai with sparkly Kin Gin.

Are you working on New Year’s Eve projects? Or New Year’s resolutions? (If you’re looking to learn a new skill, we can help with that!)

JP Knit & Stitch will be open our regular hours (till 8pm on New Year’s Eve!) and will be closed just on Thursday, January 1st. See you this year, and next!

Gift Guide #4: Bags + Cards

Our last crafty gift guide!

*Please note our Holiday Hours: we will be closed on Thursday, December 25th; Friday, December 26th; and Thursday, January 1st.

It’s common knowledge: crafters have a thing for bags. And they’re useful even for the non-crafty recipients on your list. Here’s a sample of the useful and lovely bags we have in the shop.

1) We already showcased our JP Knit & Stitch knitting kit (available “fully loaded” with knitting notions, or empty–and full of potential); why not complete the JPKS set with hand silk-screened drawstring bags. Available in two sizes and three designs. (And, yes, the pink one has glitter!)

2) We recently picked up a stack of zippered pouches from Fine Frock, a handsewer from Somerville. These surprisingly roomy bags make them perfect for small projects like socks or embroidery, or for holding the essentials and leaving your purse at home.

3) No use for bags? Try Sarah Coyne’s fiber-themed cards, made just for JP Knit & Stitch. It’s the perfect way to send a gift card or seasonal good wishes. Love Sarah’s style? She’ll be teaching a silk-screening workshop this February.

4) We love Third Floor Studio’s project and tool bags! It makes sense; Christine picks out her favorite fabrics from our selection, and then sews up the bags we want and need. She’s even making needle cases, too! Each bag is one-of-a-kind, so come pick out your favorite (or favorites).

5) Allow me to introduce my holiday mantra: there’s still time! JP Knit & Stitch is open for two more days before Christmas and the last night of Hanukkah, so you still have time to pick up the fabric to sew up a quick drawstring bag, tote, or zippered pouch.

All of these bags and cards are awesome enough to give on their own, but if you’d like to tuck a little something inside, we’ve got ideas for that too, from adorably packaged kits to super quick knitting projects. And, of course, we’ve always got gift certificates!
