6 Days Until Fall

 

fall_leaves_1_Fall is on the way and I am so happy.  Seems to me this summer has been especially hot.  Soon leaves will be changing colors and our weather will also change to cool and crisp days.

We all know that knitting, crocheting, quilting, wool applique, smocking or whatever your needle craft of choice; is especially relaxing and enjoyable when the weather turns cool.

So, come in the shop and let us help you choose a project.  Whether you need assistance selecting a pattern or finding just the right yarn, fabric or accessory for your upcoming fall project, we are here to offer you our help.

 

wool-mittensWe also have several new wool kits that are ready for your enjoyment.  From stockings to ornaments; we are sure to have something you will enjoy.   If you are new to wool applique, be sure to check the class schedule for the next wool applique workshop.  During this session Shirley and Susann will work with you to get your wool project started or finished.

 

 

 

Lastly, don’t forget to check our website again late next week for the October class schedule.  I’m sure you’ll find something that peaks your interest.  It’s always fun to learn something new or just have the time scheduled to practice.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please be sure to give us a call and let us know.

As always, we look forward to seeing you and we all wish you a wonderful fall season!
