The class schedule is growing.

I've been hard at work adding classes to the schedule. There are many opportunities to learn to knit or learn to knit something new in 2012. Here are just a few examples of our classes...

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!

I am updated the class schedule today and have added new classes today starting in January and February.  If you are new to knitting, consider our Knitting 101 class.  If you have taken a class with us before, try something new like Knit a Sweater or Mittens!

If you have a groupon that expires on Friday, please feel free to redeem it for a class.  Thanks and look forward to knitting with you all in 2012!

Knitters Unite and Support Event November 19

This summer, I had the pleasure to meet women from Bhutan who had just arrived in the United States. My first thought was how different we could be but then I learned that they were all knitters. We spoke different languages but we easily communicated about knitting, fibers and yarn. Working with the International Refugee Committee, I donated a bunch of my stash to these women.  They needed yarn to start a small business

Now, I'm pleased to announce that these women will be at Stitch DC to sell their finished garments.  100 % of the profits will go to support these women's new lives here in the States.

What: Bhutanese Women's Holiday Sales Event 
Host: IRC, Association of Bhutanese in America, and Stitch DC
When: Saturday, November 19th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Where: Stitch DC - 4000 Albemarle Street, NW, Suite 409, Washington, DC 20016 (Only steps from the Tenleytown metro)

In addition to this event, I am pleased to announce my latest book, The Very Easy Guide to Knitting Scarves: Step-by-Step Techniques, East to Follow Patterns and 22 Projects to Get You Started.  I will be signing books at a little event these weekend from 1-4 pm and guest will be registered to win a few project giveaways. 

You can also purchase the book here at Amazon.  I will sign all copies
