FREE Farmer's Market Bag Class

We've got our latest shipment of Kollage "Feed Your Creativity" Kits in. Given the nature of the project I ordered extra kits so we've got plenty for those who want to join us in this fun knitalong. With the purchase of the kit you get the 2 session class for free. The class dates are Friday, April 22 & 29th from 3-5pm.,

Terrific Tote by Barb Kervin is a lace market bag made out of Corntastic, our 100% corn yarn. This yarn is a very durable, machine washable/dryable fiber that is perfect for market bags. Why, you ask? Because the fiber will stretch to fit all the goodies from the farmer's market, but when you take all the items out...the bag will will bounce back to its original shape!

The stitch pattern for the bag was taken from our very popular Smoky Quartz Lace Shawl. Give us a call at 916.914.7719 to order your kit today.

Who says people don't knit in the summertime?? This is a great time of year, characterized by long days, sun-lit activities and wild color. We travel, we find time to relax, we spend time in air- conditioning. Knitting fits so well into summertime- it's easy to pack; it makes plane and car rides fly by. We love our summer knitting projects.

This is a great New magazine which has some great summer projects!! Lots of cute tanks and short sleeved tops for all of your vacation needs. Come on in and ask us all about this great new magazine! We can also send a copy through the mail for anyone who doesn't live locally. (916) 714-7719
