Needlepoint Joint Class List
Click here for a printable PDF version of our August Workshop Schedule!
| We’ve lined up a few August workshops to inspire you, help you learn new skills, and give you the perfect excuse to gather with
other friendly fiber folk. We hope something strikes your fancy! Also, please “like” us on Facebook (Needlepoint Joint), Ravelry
(NPJ Knitters), and Instagram (needlepointjoint) to be a part of our online community and to stay up to date on what’s going on
in the shop.
Toys are fun and quick projects-and great gifts for children! In this workshop, choose either the "Little Owl" or "Sweet Sheep"
by Susan B. Anderson and I'll guide you through the steps to finish these cute toys. We'll talk about ideal gauge for toys, stuffing
techniques, picking up stitches and face embroidery. If you have never knit a toy before, or have tried but haven't been happy
with the result, these are great patterns.
If you have knit a toy before or are an experienced knitter, you may choose to knit a toy from the "Wee Ones Seamless Knit
Toys" collection (Elephant, Bunny or Hippo) for the workshop. It is a more advanced pattern though, so please only choose this
pattern if you are an experienced knitter ready to learn more advanced techniques such as short rows.

Instructor: Melissa Trotter

making would make great gifts).

Free Community Events
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. Especially if you’re taking a class, this time can 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 for some social knitting time. All adult knitters of any knitting ability are welcome! You can always request a little help from other knitters, but no instruction is offered during this time. Come with an easy, independent project, because you will definitely be distracted chatting with this fun collection of people!

Let’s get together to stitch! This will be a social time for stitchers to gather together, learn new skills, and be inspired. Stitchers of all abilities are welcome.
