2018-12 December Newsletter


Hello my fabulous stitching friends!!
This is it, Ladies and Gentlemen! This is the moment we’ve been training for all year! The season of gift giving is upon us. Gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, hosts and hostesses, teachers and school support staff. Gifts for coworkers and neighbors and there should always be a little self-care gift in there for you as well!

All year long, we’ve learned new knitting and crochet skills, discovered new yarns and tools, and saved a TON of adorable patterns on Ravelry (amiright?!) *if you need help searching and saving on Ravelry, see below for a new Ravelry class!

Now it’s time to show off your gift as a Fiber Artist (umm, yes, my friends! If you can perform a simple single crochet or knit stitch, you are purveying and exploring the fiber arts, so you are a full-fledged Fiber Artiste!). But don’t hurt yourself with a punishing schedule of complicated projects! There are so many fun and impressive things to work up that will amaze and delight everyone on your gift list!  We have patterns, ideas and kits all ready for you to pop in and pick out!


From festive wine bottle covers (don’t you dare go out and buy a sad little paper bag when you can make a cover in the same amount of time!) to ornaments for the tree or alongside the gift tags on your presents, to heavenly mitts that knit up in a couple of hours (that’s enough time to watch a Peanuts special and a Hallmark movie!!), and mug-huggers for all the coffee-dependent teachers (don’t laugh, it’s true!!) and SO MUCH MORE, you can satisfy everyone in your life and feed your creative spirit at the same time..
Not sure what to make, can’t decide or just need a little more inspiration? Drop into the shop, find a comfy seat and make a little project from our $5 Drop In Basket! In the time it takes you to join us for a cup of coffee or tea, you’ll have a little project finished and a lot of sanity saved.
