 Weaving Help
We’ve caught the weaving bug! If you’ve taken the beginning Rigid Heddle weaving class (or know how to weave already) and have questions, want help warping your loom, or just want to weave and chat with other friendly weavers, this time is for you. Weekly, Rebecca will be on hand to help you and  Deanna Baugh, our weaving expert, will be here the first Monday of each month.
When: Monday afternoons from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Wednesday Knitting Support Group
We are always willing and happy to help you with your projects any time you come into the shop, but every Wednesday afternoon is dedicated to providing you a little extra help and the support of other knitters.  This is not only a great time to get help on a pattern or ask questions, it can also work like a study group to accompany your class.  Even if you just want time to knit during the day in a friendly group atmosphere, you are welcome! Karyn will be available to help and offer instruction.
When:  Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Thursday Knit Night
Come join us every Thursday night (but not in AUGUST) for some social knitting time. All adult knitters of any knitting ability are welcome. No instruction is offered during this time so come with an easy, independent project, because you will definitely be distracted chatting with this fun collection of people.
When: Every non-August Thursday from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

How to Photograph Your Knits Using Just Your Smartphone
You've spent hours knitting something beautiful, so why not spend a few hours with me to learn
how to take better pictures of your knits? I will help guide you as you learn how to accentuate
the beauty of your knits by paying attention to how to find good light, how to pose your subject,
how to focus on the knit and not the person, and how find the best location and background to
avoid unnecessary distractions. This will be an interactive workshop, so bring lots of your knits
to practice with, wear simple clothing and comfortable shoes, and come with a good sense of
humor. You should have at least a rudimentary idea of how to use your phone to take pictures to
have the most fun and success in this class.

Mermaid Scarf in Free-Form Overshot
Weave the Mermaid scarf shown on the cover of Handwoven Magazine, November/December 2015. This wonderful scarf was woven on a Rigid Heddle loom with a pick-up stick to create the pattern.
