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.

Calendar


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!

One Block Wonders

One-block wonders are fabrics that are cut in layers so that they kaleidoscope as hexagons. The first night, we'll cut out the fabric and talk about how to sew the hexagons. The second night, we'll look at final layouts before you sew them down. Wednesdays, Oct. 13 and Dec. 8. $38. Supplies: Talk to Cynthia before the class. You?ll need a large-scale print; buy 6 repeats of it. You?ll need a Creative Grids 60-degree triangle ruler. You?ll need flat-head flower pins. And you?ll need basic sewing supplies. Some flannel or batting is highly recommended to "stick" your pieces down and create the layout.

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.
