Tomorrow is the big day! The very first Fiber Sho organized by The Hook Pusher and Fusion Fiber Arts is happening tomorrow at 628 Monmouth Road in Windsor.
$1 of the $3 Entrance Fee is being donated to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women & Families. I hope that you are planning to come check it out! I will be a Vendor so the shop will be closed tomorrow so pop by to shop and say Hi!
I have been so busy with a big project for my other job that I must apologize for being so late with today's blog / newsletter! I am frantically trying to get together an awesome selection to bring tomorrow.
This is the tiny bit that I put together last night...This will be fun and super exciting! I will finally be able to meet more of Windsor's extensive group of talented makers!
The Fall and Winter Classes are up on the website! Take the time and see if there is one that you just have to take. Register soon...Jen's Learning the Magic Loop with Cuff Down Sock Class is scheduled for Saturdays, Sep 14, 28, Oct 5 & Oct 12 - 10 am to 12 pm. Register for the class HERE.
These are a pair of what Jen loves to knit...socks, socks and more socks!
2 of the Sheep Carousel tea cosies that we’re made during our last Colourwork and Steeking Class! Steeking refers to the process of knitting extra stitches so that you can cut through them later. I promise, it is really not that scary! This time we will run the class Saturdays, Sept 21, 28 & Oct 12 – 1 am to 3 pm. You can register for the class HERE.
Strange Brew Colourwork Class with Paulette is starting Wednesdays, Sept 18, 25, Oct 9, 23 & Nov 6 – 1 to 3 pm for 5 sessions. Strange Brew is a great first time stranded yoke sweater project. This is a recipe style pattern with plug and play instructions so that you can create your own customized sweater. You can use the pattern to knit it top-down or bottom-up but for our class, we will knit it top-down and sport or worsted weight. Register for the class HERE.
Find the others on the website. If you are interested in specific class or to have us run a specific knit-along project, please ask.
