We have a special guest from London coming in September! Debbie Abrahams is a Rowan designer and has published several books of late..."Design Your Own Knits", "100 More Afghan Squares to Knit", and her recent book "25 Beaded Knits" is the book she is focusing on for the workshop. We will have fun, fun, fun knitting a sample that will include beaded cast-on, beaded tassels and multi-colored beaded patterns. The date is Tuesday the 9th of September from 6-9 pm. All the materials are included in the cost of the class. Just bring size 2 or 3 needles. Cost is $60.00.This class will fill fast!!!

We have the new Interweave KnitScene in the shop. It features Laura Irwin and focuses on her new book due out this fall, "Boutique Knits". Laura is teaching a class "Embellishing Felted Knitwear" on Sunday, August 24th. Many of Laura's projects use unique adornment: buckles and bolts borrowed from leatherwork. Her use of lace, beads, ribbon, and fabric-covered buttons is fun and modern.

We are looking forward to Leigh Radford's class, "Silver Wire Necklace" on Thursday August 12th, 6:30-9:00. You will create this elegant sterling silver necklace with silver beads featured in "AlterKnits". There are just a couple spaces left! We will be offering some sneak preview classes this fall from her new book "AlterKnits Felt". Stay tuned.

Kristin Spurkland, author of "The Knitting Manual" has a few spaces left in her fair isle hat class that starts Sunday, August 3rd. Also, Kristin's top down hat class is one session Sunday, July 27th.
