ONGOING & UPCOMING EVENTS

 

FALL 2018 KNIT-A-LONG

Beginning in October is our FALL 2018 KNIT-A-LONG (KAL)!

This is a simple one. We’re focusing on quick and easy knitted and crocheted gifts.

The requirements are that you need to buy 2 balls or skeins of yarn or a single skein of over 400 yards. You must sign up with us with your yarn and project before November 10th.

The gifts can be for anyone, including yourself or your favorite puppy.  There are no specific requirements for patterns or project type, so scarves, shawls, blankets, sweaters, and everything else under the sun can be chosen.  The only requirement is that is must be a gift, but you can give it to anyone you wish.

The deadline for completion and our KAL party will be December 16th from 1 – 4 pm with the usual food, fun, and prizes.  You don’t want to miss this!

 

MOONLIGHT MADNESS

The store will close at 6 pm as usual, though attending students can still make purchases.

We’ll have a healthy dinner and a delicious dessert or two, followed by lots of knitting and stitching time and all the help and instruction you want.

It’s a class so our normal class rules apply and you’ll get credit for it. The fee is $25 and advance reservations are required by the Wednesday before.  Yarn must have been purchased from Knit One, Stitch Too.

There will be a surprise or two during the evening as well.

Future dates for this year will be announced as they are scheduled. Call the store for more information.

KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT

We’re partnering with the Carolina Breast Friends Center to make and distribute Knitted Knockers for women who need breast prosthesis after surgery. Did you guess that we will make and they will distribute? Actually they have knitting and crochet groups that will be making them along with several church groups that knit and crochet for good causes, and our knitters and crocheters. The prosthesis can be crocheted, knitted in the round, or knitted flat. We’ll be happy to do the seaming and stuffing if you bring them to us. We are also collecting the finished knockers for deliverey to the Carolina Breast Friends Center for distribution to women who need them. We have several yarns that will make wonderful knockers, and will be happy to help you with any questions or problems. You can come in any time for that whether you bought your yarn here or not.

We’ll be hosting KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT on the first Friday of every month from 3 pm to 9 pm. There’s no charge and all we’ll be doing is knitting or crocheting knockers, but – you know us – there may be a few surprises. If you don’t want to join us for the knitting, that’s fine. You can drop your knockers off any time the store is open. You can download the pattern at www.knittedknockers.org. If you aren’t able to do that, we can help you with one. We hope we can inspire lots of knitters and crocheters to make a pair or two for the women in our community who need them.
