We are so excited to have Cecelia Campochiaro, the author of Sequence Knitting,
joining us for a day long, hands-on workshop based on
her latest book, Making Marls. The Workshop is called
Exploring Marls and Color.
In this workshop you will learn how to design and make beautiful and complex marled fabrics
working with yarns and color to make pieces with sequences of marls. Several customers had the chance to
take this class in at Vogue Knitting in New York and raved. We can't wait.
The Class will be from 10 am to 5 pm, with an hour break for lunch.
All materials and Lunch are included.
The Cost of the class is $130.
All students will receive a 20% discount on all purchases for the day, including
both of Cecelia's books which will be available in the shop.
Space is limited, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible.
You can register on-line or by calling the shop.

KnitNorth Yarn Crawl, 19th - 22nd March
Save the dates for this year's Yarn Crawl. We have lots planned including
a number of trunk shows and special appearances. More details to come as we get closer.
It has been a while since we have done our series of Techniques Classes, so we have decided to bring them back.
These classes are designed to focus on one particular technique with various ways to do them.
We are going to start with a couple of basics:
Short-Rows - almost every pattern/design we see has short-row shaping.
While some of us are familiar with doing short-rows, which one is best to use for which project
and, more importantly, why? Join us on
Tuesday, 17th March from 1.30 - 3.30 pm to perfect your short-rows
The cost of the Class is $25.00 and all materials will be provided.
Seams - very few people like to put their projects together, but a great seam can either make or break a
project. There are some very simple tricks to the trade that can make seaming
much easier and less of a dreaded part of your knitting / crocheting. Join us on
Tuesday, 24th March from 1.30 - 3.30 pm and you will learn to like seams.
The cost of the Class is $25.00. Bring a project that needs putting together or bring
several 5" blocks of both Stockinette and Garter stitch on which to work.
More Class will be announced shortly.
