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.

Tips and Tricks

Yarn can be tricky! But Cindy Decker-Raynak has it all under control, and will show you tips and tricks so you can be in control, too. What happens when you discover a dropped stitch a few rows back? How do you make a jogless color change? How do you count with markers? How do you change colors of yarn without knots? And more! Soon you'll be throwing yarn in the air with abandon like the woman in this photo! Cost: $25. Supplies: Be prepared with scrap yarn and about a size 7 needle. Date: Tuesday, Nov. 29, 6:30-8:00ish? We will go a little later if needed (read: we're having so much fun...). In the shop in person, masks optional, plus kitty ears, elf ears, and Santa hats are all welcome.

Really Clear Year 2022

As you may know, Cynthia designs knitting patterns (along with quilting patterns!). This class provides you with an interesting adventure into learning new things while you find any part of the pattern that isn't "really clear." We've had such fun in these classes for the past few years, working through her new ideas. This is a chance to play with surprise patterns, and to make requests for patterns you've always wanted (no guarantees on that one!). What we do each year is a bit of a mystery (even to her!). You might want to go to reallyclear.com to see patterns she's designed in the past. Join us in the fun! Supplies: Cynthia will let you know the supplies before each class. (For the first class, she is still debating between a couple of ideas! Stay tuned!) Time: Thursdays, Jan. 27, Feb. 24, Apr. 21, May 26, June 23, July 28, Aug. 25, Oct. 27, Dec. 1. Your choice of 9-11 a.m. or 6-8 p.m. On Zoom. Cost: $60 plus supplies.
