Happy October!

October 5 we will be opening at 2 pm. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Jingle bells, jingle bells! You hear it? Have you got your projects all lined up? Somehow it seems my list gets longer as the days get shorter.  I have to finish a Christmas stocking, three hats, a scarf, and two sweaters. How about you?
Come let us help you get in the spirit! We have new yarns and new classes! Come join us in some of our very own merry making!



Looking to expand your knitting horizons? Classes fill quickly and are packed with a lot of information in a structured amount of time.  You don’t want to miss anything! Please be on time and ready to begin.

To ensure that you have a seat at the table, we ask that you pay for your classes in advance. Don’t miss out! You can sign up online!
