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.

2014: Year of the Crafter!

Well, we’ve made it through the holiday parties, gift giving, and late night finishing to a bright–if cold–January! And we’ve got a suite of classes to celebrate the new year!

Knitting classes and workshops: January’s offerings include our Brioche Workshop and our two week course on Linen Stitch. (You have to check out the samples for both in the shop. They’re so thick and cozy!) In February, tackle a whole sweater with our Danforth Pullover Workshop or work on more modest–but still fun and impressive–Garter Stitch Mitts.

New sewing courses: Our Zinnia Skirt Workshop, based on the Colette pattern, starts tomorrow! Or try out a new skill in one day workshops for Embroidery and Quilting!

Lots of stuff for kids: Thursday Kids Knitting Club starts up this week, and we’ve got sessions for knitting and sewing coming up in February, including the return of Friday Kids Sewing Club.

Our classic classes: These classes, including Knitting for all Levels and Beginning to Knit (that’s a link for February, since January is almost full!) run every month. They’re a great way to learn to knit, but you can also take the class multiple times to grow your skills!

New classes are going up all the time, so check back often or sign up for email updates at the bottom of the page.

Happy happy post-holiday crafting!

So, I did not get as much knitting done over the holidays as I thought I would. Here’s my work-in-progress: A Fledging Featherweight sweater for my 5 year old in Manos Silk Blend. It’s taking me awhile! Between all the present wrapping (and unwrapping) and cooking (and cleaning) not much knitting is going on. Today, though, we are open and I’m knitting away in the shop. Come on down and visit us! We will be open Saturday, 12/28, until 5pm and Sunday, 12/29, from 12-5pm. We are closed on Wednesday, 1/1, New Year’s Day, and then back to our regular hours on Thursday, 1/2.
