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.

New Knitter Adventure Year!

This class is for new knitters who know only how to knit and purl, and maybe just a WEE bit more. (Important: If you do not know how to do those two stitches, please take Knitting 101 instead of this class.) Are you tired of making only the knit-stitch scarf you're seeing here? Would you like to learn a little more now so that you can make all the coolest things? We have just the class for you! Join Cynthia for a "Knitting Adventure Year." We'll use her Really Clear patterns to learn how to do everything from cables to Fair Isle to intarsia. If you don't know what those are, that's okay! We'll get you going! Cost: $60 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need to buy the pattern each month, and the supplies for the project. Cynthia will send out a supply note about a week before each class. To buy the patterns, sign up for a Ravelry account at www.ravelry.com or get them at the shop when you buy the yarn. Thursdays, Jan. 28, Feb. 25, Mar. 25, no class in April, May 13, June 24, July 22, Aug. 12, Sept. 2, Oct. 14, Nov. 18, and Dec. 9. All from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

2021 Block of the Month: Catisse

Has Cynthia gone off the deep edge? With cats pushing her all the way? This quilt looks nothing like any other block of the month we've ever had. We'll use easy raw-edge applique to put a lot of cats onto a lot of blocks. The center is a giant leaping cat inspired by artist Henri Matisse's paper cutout, "Icarus." Click to read more!

Knitting 101

Want to learn how to knit? Or need a refresher after many years of neglecting your knitting? Take our beginning-knitting course. You'll learn how to cast on, knit, and purl, and you'll start a scarf. Cost: $38 plus supplies. Supplies: Make an appointment to stop into the shop before the class to pick up the Easy-Looped Scarf pattern, and the yarn and needles to go with it. Tuesdays, Feb. 2 & 16, 6-8 PM on Zoom, OR Tuesdays, Mar. 16 & 30, 6-8 PM on Zoom, OR Saturdays, May 29 & June 5, 1-3 PM outdoors.
