                  Reminder: Intown Quilters Fabric & Yarn
                            is now closed on Wednesdays

     Did you know we have a couple of knitting classes coming up with a really fabulous teacher? Nell Ziroli used to live here in the Atlanta area and used to teach at Knitch before relocating to Norfolk, Va., -- and she's coming back to Atlanta just to teach for us!

     Nell is an accomplished knitter, designer and instructor, with a knack for creating color and texture -- and she's just a delight! We're excited to have Nell teach Simple Color Work Techniques as well as Hat Math on Saturday, 6/17. These are great classes for confident beginners who are comfortable with knitting/purling and ready to take that next step with their knitting. Scroll down to the Classes section of this email for more information about each class, as well as the link to sign up online.

     We've recently restocked some of our favorite colors in Wonderland/Frabjous Fibers yarns, both Mad Hatter and March Hare weights. Plus we've added some of the Wonderland mini skein packs (perfect for Nell's color work class). And our shipment of Hempathy yarns should arrive by the end of next week. This is a great summer yarn, perfect for so many wearable projects!

     Happy stitching,
     Sarah & the IQ crew

     P.S. Don't forget that Intown Quilters is now closed on Wednesdays. Of course, we're still open six days a week (including Sundays and until 8 p.m. on Tuesdays), and you can always shop our website, 24/7/365! Please share this news with all your friends since many of our customers do not get our newsletters and many who do, don't always read them.



CLASSES  

Classes are listed below and on the website. Don't put off signing up for a class you are interested in because some fill up quickly and you don't want to miss out because you forgot to sign up right away.

Ongoing IQ Class Policies
* You should receive a class supply list about 2 weeks prior to the class by email unless you have stopped by the shop to get one in person.
* Students may set up their spaces no more than 15 minutes prior to the start of the class.
*Class cancellation policy: You can cancel a class up to two weeks prior to class for a full refund. We will only cancel a class if we have to. If you miss a class we can try to get you in the next class with a fee (fee is determined by the length of the class) to cover the lost spot in that class.)

Knitting/Crocheting Classes

Sit & Knit
Thursdays, 10 am-2 pm
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! This is great for beginners especially, as knitting near more experienced knitters allows for you to get immediate help with questions and mistakes which then helps you learn to recognize mistakes yourself and gives you the practice time to get better with your knitting. 
When possible the first hour of this time is dedicated to teaching folks how to cast-on and knit stitch. You can then sit and knit in the group which is a great way to get started because there is help nearby as you practice your knitting.
(We recommend bringing a snack so you can pop downstairs for a quick bit to stay energized for a full day of stitching.)

Simple Color Work Techniques
Saturday, 6/17/2017, 10 am-noon $45
In this 2-hour class, Nell covers simple and basic stranding techniques using sock weight self-striping yarn and a contrasting solid. You'll begin a pair of wrist warmers with that signature NellKnits color work style!Nell Ziroli loves the feel of wool between her fingers. She is a perpetual knitter, published designer and enthusiastic teacher. She comes from a family of knitters and otherwise crafty people and has been creating things by hand for as long as she can remember. She also feels at home in just about any kitchen.

Hat Math
Saturday, 6/17/2017, 1-4 pm $65
In this 3-hour class, students will build on the skills learned in knit and purl classes. There will be instruction of simple math based on the student’s own measurements, to create a hat in a loose or fitted style. Simple written direction for ending this hat will be given. Students will leave with an understanding of how to create a hat pattern for any gauge yarn, to fit any head. Nell Ziroli loves the feel of wool between her fingers.
