For a shopping appointment, please click on the "shopping appointment" below.

Here's what you can do when you make an appointment:

1. Browse to get inspired, and buy nothing. I don't care. I know you'll be back.
2. Pick out one skein of embroidery floss.
3. Ask for advice on a quilting or knitting project--without buying anything to go with said projects.
You'll be back when your project is finished. I'm not worried.
4. Pick out fabric or yarn for a project without my help.
5. Pick out fabric or yarn for a project with my help.
6. Show me something you've finished.
7. If you're new in town, come in to see what's in the shop! I'd love to meet you and show you around.
8. A visitor passing through? Click for a time, and come on in!

I'll be delighted to see you!

Making an appointment is easy. Call or text me, or do it here. (Be sure you get a confirmation email to show that the appointment has gone through! Call if you don't!) If you need an earlier or later time, that's easy, too! Just call the shop at 814-238-4151. (I've kept the afternoons open on this calendar so that you can call in for any yarn and fabric emergency slots!) If you don't see times, click on the little black arrow below.


Brioche Cowl

You've heard of brioche, but you're not really sure what it is, and you have no idea how you'd do it. Well, look no further, because Eleanor is here to help you figure it out! This simple cowl will get you started, and then you might not stop! $32. Join her on Oct. 10 and 24, from 1-4 outdoors. She?ll contact you about the meeting place.

Quilting 101 Placemats

Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching at the corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous scant quarter-inch seam (whatever that is!). Cost: $42 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order. You'll also need the pattern and all the fixin's! Make an appointment to stop by at least a few days before the class begins so we can help you pick out your fabric and notions. We suggest our Creative Grids rulers, which are easy to use with a non-slip grip and visible markings; our Creative Grids mats, which are the best cutting mats in the whole wide world; and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy, safe, and easy to use. Good tools and fabrics really do matter--they increase happiness and keep frustration low! Oct. 11, 20, and Nov. 1, from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

College Avenue Sweater

This basic raglan cardigan can be made either plain if you're new to sweaters, or with the cables as shown. (Cynthia will show you how to make modifications.) Come in, and we'll help you choose a yarn. Wednesdays, Sept. 29, Nov. 3, Dec. 1, Jan. 5, and Feb. 2 on Zoom. Price: $55. Supplies: You may buy the College Avenue pattern either on paper from us or directly on Ravelry. Talk to Cynthia before class about your yarn. We love our Malabrigo Rios for this project, but other good basics, such as Cascade 220 or Ultra Alpaca, are terrific!
