Welcome to Knit One, Stitch Too!
Your Charlotte area source for the best in knitting, crocheting, and needlepoint supplies, accessories, & instruction. We have a wide variety of yarns, needles, threads, books, patterns, bags, and gadgets.
Knit One, Stitch Too was opened in July 2001 by Betsy Weber to offer high quality supplies, accessories, and instruction to those interested in knitting, needlepointing, crocheting, and other needlearts. Over the years we have grown into a community of lively-minded needleartists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds who enjoy sharing our love of needle work. You’re always welcome to come in and see what’s new, get help with your project, or just sit and relax with your needles for a while. We love having visitors!
We are a full service store so we also offer finishing of knitted, crocheted, and needlepoint items, or we will work the entire item for you. Our Christmas deadline for finishing is October 1 every year. We repair hand made items, and are always happy to provide estimates on repairs or teach you how to make repairs yourself.
Happy Ground Hog Day, Valentines Day, and Mardi Gras! For such a short month, we have much to celebrate. We have lots going on in the store as well, including a celebration of our own: It’s our annual Mardi Gras Sale! The sale will be on February 13, 14, 16, and 17. Your discount at the sale will depend on how much you know about Mardi Gras and how wild and crazy you feel like being (please remember this is a PG-rated store when you’re choosing your attire!). If you wear purple, green, or gold, you’ll have 1% off for each. All three will get 5% off. A Mardi Gras song or slogan is worth 2% each. Real Mardi Gras beads are another 2%, and real Mardi Gras Doubloons are 3%. We gave you those in past years, so dig them out for a bigger discount. A picture of you at Mardi Gras is 5%, and a real Zulu coconut that you’re will to give me will get you an additional 10% off. Get in the spirit and dress up with us – innovative and fun attire will get even more percent off your purchases at the register. Join us to Let the Good Times Roll!
This month we start our Knit-A-Long with Cascade Yarn. They have hundreds of free patterns for you to download. Go to www.cascadeyarns.com and find a project you like. If you can’t download them, come in and we’ll do it for you. Using their pattern and at least 3 balls/skeins of their yarn, work any project you like. You can swap one Cascade yarn for another of the same gauge, but you must sign up and tell us what pattern and yarn you’re using by February 7. We’ll have our KAL party on Sunday, May 31st, where everyone who finished a project will get a gift from us and be entered into a drawing for great prizes from Cascade Yarn.
While you’re marking your calendar, the next Moonlight Madness is February 20, so you’ll need to make your reservations by February 18.
Starting March 3rd, we’re introducing a new class on the cardigans in Knit, Swirl! by Sandra Mciver. These are wonderful sweaters that fit and flatter everyone, and are fun to knit. They’re essentially a big circle with sleeves. Sound intriguing? Class will be Tuesday from 7 pm – 9 pm. We’ll be open for students only that evening. The cost is $15 per class ($5 for current students in other classes). Since it’s a class, you must buy your yarn in the store. Come in, see the book, and learn more about this project. If you don’t already have a copy of the book, we have a good supply.
We have new supplies of needles, yarns, and all sorts of other good things, so stop by and see us soon!
Keep your needles moving!
PS Of course we have new yarn and gadgets, don’t we always? But I’m out of space, and I promised you no more than 1 page. You’ll just have to stop by and see all our new goodies.
