June 2018
Wow, it turns out that June is really busy! How does that always happen??
I will be attending The National Needle Arts trade show in Cleveland, mid-month, which is a lot of fun, but also a whole lot of decision-making, planning and networking. I'm alternately tired and excited, thinking about it. I usually try to go every other year, to hopefully keep on top of what is new and exciting, and to begin placing my fall orders.
On June 4, I will have been in business for 30 years !!!!!! I can hardly believe that one. How fortunate I am that I love what I do. (I started when I was 30 years old, so you know what that means... yikes.)

Then, on June 21-24 is the 8th annual I-91 Shop Hop! If you haven't "done" the shop hop before, maybe you should think about it this year. It really is a lot of fun. With featured patterns and kits, chances at some really nice prizes, and each shop all dolled up for the occasion, it's a great time to make the rounds. Try it, even if you don't get to all the shops! There is more information on my website here.

this lightweight summery scarf by Mindy Ross has beads all along the edges (whichever edges you choose!). Come get started on one! Once you learn how to place your beads and get going, it's a quick and simple knit. Ours is made in one skein of Berroco Medina, which is a lovely, gradient cotton blend.

Something special coming this Fall!
This fall, Marji's Yarncrafts, of Granby, and Sew Inspired, of Simsbury will be offering a class based on the new book; Uniform .
This book contains a pattern for a very customizable go-to cardigan sweater in two weights, and a lovely also-customizable sewn tunic that you can make again and again.
We will be offering a 6-week class which will alternate between sewing and knitting, so that you can make your own "uniform"!

The class will meet Tuesday evenings
September 11 & 25 and October 9
September 18 and October 2 & 16
The cost for the class will be $108 for both, or $60 for either knitting OR sewing,
plus materials.
Please let either of us know if you are interested, and we can tell you more about it!
Annual Summer Yarn Sale will be July 12-13-14!
I will remind you in next month's email.
Closed for vacation the week of July 22-28!!
