When You Need a Little Help From a Friend

All Skills Knitting Clinic

A new series of All Skills Knitting/Crochet Clinic starts next week. This is one of the most popular classes in our class line-up. It's been so popular we've had to add another day of classes. We consistently have people sign up for months at a time. I believe when you are in the shop on a regular basis and you have 2 hours of devoted time by a fabulous teacher you become a much better knitter. You are willing to try new projects because you have the safety net of having someone help you and fix your mistakes.

In September we will be offering the All Skills Knitting/Crochet Clinic four days a week.

Wednesdays 12-2pm September 1,8,15,22&29 $75.00

Thursday 6-8pm September 2,16,23&30 $75.00

Fridays 12-2 pm September 3,10,17&24 $60.00

Sundays 1-3 pm September 5,12,19&26 $60.00

If you sign up for the entire month you get the discounted rate as shown. You are also welcome, if there is room in the session to sign up for individual classes which are $20.00/2 hour class.

This is a class that fills fast, especially with the Holiday gift-giving season right around the corner. Be sure to call us at Knitique 916.714.7719 to reserve your space.

New Books

Calling all book lovers!!

This week has been a busy one with new books to come into the shop. In the last two days we have received 4 new books. There is a fabulous new Debbie Bliss book called, The Knitter's Year. This one is sectioned off by season which is great when you want to make something a few seasons before to use or wear later. This is great for Christmas gifts as well.

If you enjoyed Last Minute Knitted gifts than you are really going to enjoy the second in this series. More Last Minute knitted gifts gives you a wide range of ideas to make for all your family and friends as well as yourself. This book has sections based on time so if you only have a few hours it will give you great ideas for projects.

For all of you Washcloth lovers there is a new book called, More than a dozen dishcloths. This has some really great dishcloths with a "scrubby" type side and a "softer" side. This is a great book to make up some great dishcloth and soap baskets as gifts

Christmas is around the corner and we have a new Christmas stocking book that is flying off the shelves. So come on down and check it out, Christmas is just around the corner and now is a great time to think about all those little ones in your family who are in need of a Christmas stocking for Santa to fill with all of his goodies. These make great presents and are more than just your typical stocking.
