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

I know, I know, appointments are weird for stores. But you'll find that they're terrific! 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 and check out the shop!

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. (If you don't see times, click on the little black arrow below.


Sweater of Your Choice

Block of the Month 2023: Almost Neutral! PICK-UP

NOTE: You may join in late. We'll make a kit for you. Please call the shop to sign up. Cynthia began this quilt with the idea of making it all gray, and she began designing. Well, you know her love of color: All-gray didn't last long. So a wee bit of grayish purple crept in. And then a bit more dark purple--all mixed in with the gray. And now it's perfect. Enjoy sewing this elegant quilt, bit by bit, throughout the year! Supplies: This quilt is for pick-up or mailing, rather than an in-store class. You should have basic quilting knowledge before making it, or take Quilting 101 before beginning it. We'll supply the fabric and pattern each month, and you?ll end up with a gorgeous quilt as you work with ease on it throughout the year! The quilt finishes at about 107". Any questions? Talk to Cynthia. Pick-up Dates: Saturdays, Jan. 21, Feb. 25, Mar. 25, April 22, May 20, June 17, July 22, Aug. 26, Sept. 23. Blocks will be outside the shop after 10 a.m. or can be mailed if you call to sign up. Postage for the year if you would like to have yours mailed is $60. Cost: $190 covers the entire top plus binding. Backing is separate.

Really Clear Year 2023

As you may know, Cynthia designs lots of knitting patterns. This class provides you with an 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. What we do each year is a bit of a mystery (even to her!). You might want to go to to see patterns she's designed in the past. Join us in the fun! Supplies: We're going to start the year with helix knitting a hat. You'll need 5 colors of worsted-weight yarn (50 yards of each), and a size 5 and 7 16" circular needle. Supply lists for other projects will be given as the year goes on. Dates and Times: Thursdays, Jan. 19, Feb. 16, Mar. 23, May 25, June 29, July 27, Aug. 24, Sept. 28, Oct. 26, Dec. 7. Your choice of 9-11 a.m. or 6-8 p.m. This is a Zoom class, since we've been gathering some wonderful out-of-state customers!. Cost: $50 plus supplies
