We are coming up on our 3rd anniversary- 3 years ago we re-opened the store after a few months' transition from our beloved Yarns Unlimited to our new Sewickley Yarns. We have had a wonderful three years and are looking forward to more to come- and we would like to invite our friends and customers to join us on March 30 from 10 to 5 for our usual mode of celebration: champagne and cake and this year a one-day-only sale on our already discounted sale yarns. We will be offering our entire stock of sale yarns for 50% off for our birthday day only. This includes the entire line of Debbie Bliss which we are discontinuing, as well as some wonderful cottons, linens and a few wools and blends. Help us clear out our sale room- we would love to make room for more yarn!! Come in and check out the choices.
We are continuing to offer our drop-in basic beginner's classes every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 1 pm to 2 pm. This beginner class will teach casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and casting off. These will repeat the same skills at each meeting so that you can start anytime or you can drop in when you want to refresh your recollection. This class begins at 1 pm, and costs $10 per one hour session.
Our progressive knitting class is going well and we have a great group of students who are following the techniques and agenda of the new Pom Pom book "Knit How". We are working our way through the book at a steady pace, learning new techniques and tackling new and different projects as we follow the book's general outline. If you are already a knitter with some basic skills and are looking for new challenges, you may join the class at the level that you see yourself and continue with us through the book. This class requires purchase of the Pom Pom "Knit How" book. Contact the shop for more details and to let us know if you are interested. This class will meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 1 pm to 2 pm, and costs $10 per one hour session. Call to check in to see where we are so that you can join when we get to your skill level.
For more information about these new classes see the Classes page on this website or call the shop.
