May 21, 2019  

   It's always fun to play with fabric and yarn. We had a great time mixing up the fat quarters from Zen Chic's new Day in Paris line for Moda Fabrics. It's so colorful and inspiring! We decided to use one of our recent favorite patterns, Persimmon Bars, and have a sample on the way. Of course there's no need to wait until the sample arrives to get your own bundle. We have a 20 fat quarter bundle ready for you, as well as a supplemental 8 fat quarter bundle you can use to make an even larger version of the quilt.



    Did you see the pics of Tula Pink's Quilt Market booth that we shared on social media over the weekend? Talk about eye candy! We've got her Monkey Wrench line (including wide backing fabrics) on order, as well as the Sunrise quilt kit -- and all of them are up on our website for preorder. Order yours today and we'll get it to you when it arrives in September.



     Have you ever wished you had a certain fabric for a project but just could not find something that matched your vision? Our Fabric Painting & Dyeing class is a great way to learn how to alter fabric (you can bring an ugly piece from your stash to work on) to create a different piece that works for you. If you were hoping to take our Fabric Painting & Dyeing class with Casey Green but couldn't make the Memorial Day weekend date, then you're in luck! We've rescheduled the class to July 13. Don't miss an opportunity to learn from Casey Green. She is so talented with this art form and spends hours prepping the class to provide you with all the supplies and space you need to play and experiment. Check out the cool print (right) which was made with cabbage, and then sign up to experience the creativity for yourself!

    We've got some other great classes coming up soon, whether you want to learn how to sew or design a quilt with EQ8. Register now for these classes (scroll down to the Classes section for more information):

KAFFETASTIC QUILTALONG
 

The Kaffetastic Rainbow Star Quilt Along will be kicking off early next month. We only have a few kits left. Click here to see the detailed list of the fabrics included in the Bold or Sunset kits that you can use in any way you choose. You can make the quilts shown here, or you can design your own quilt with the fabric. We also have a few ideas for some other kits we can put together for you like a mixture of Tula Pink fabric or maybe a Jen Kingwell version and even batiks would make a great quilt.

There will be weekly Sunday sewing days to help you make regular progress with the goal of finishing a quilt top (or two) this summer. We plan to try to have a day to cut out your fabric on June 2nd, too, so you can be ready to sew when the QAL kicks off the following week.

Participants who purchase a kit from us get some great swag (while supplies last) and a discount on all Kaffe Fassett (or whatever type of fabric you choose for your alternate kit) products for the duration of the QAL, as well as weekly finisher prizes. 
Pre-order your kit now! Come see us or call us to discuss alternate fabric options.

Knitting/Crocheting Classes

Two-at-a-Time Socks, Toe Up

Avoid "second sock syndrome" by knitting your next pair of socks two-at-a-time on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique! We'll start toe up, which makes it even easier to check the fit of your socks as you go. Please note, this is an intermediate knitting class. Students should be comfortable with casting on, knitting, purling, and working in the round. No prior sock knitting experience is required. Taught by Mary Abreu.

Tuesday evening Sit & Stitch (Yarn)
Every Tuesday, 5-8 pm
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! Crocheters are welcome, too!

Thursday Sit & Stitch (Yarn)
Thursdays, 10 am-1 pm 
Drop in any time during the posted hours for some yarn fun with friends! Crocheters are welcome, too! 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.

Knitting 101 by reservation
You can learn how to get started knitting during our weekly sit and knit or we can set up a time that works better for your schedule. Just reserve your spot for $40 prior to that day (either in store, online or by phone) and we will make sure there is someone there dedicated to teaching you how for the first hour of the morning sit & knit. Yarn and knitting needles included! We've found it is a great way for folks to learn. They can then sit with the teacher for awhile knitting and get help learning how to fix little mistakes as they arise. We've had great feedback on teaching knitting this way versus a separate class. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the session. If you would like to set up a private one-on-one, sign up online and then email us to let us know what dates work for you.
