Top Down Basic Socks
A series of three classes: Sunday October 18, November 8 and 15. 2-4p m
Teacher: Alissa
Learn to knit socks in the traditional manner, starting with the cuff and working down to your toes. Perfect for first time sock knitters or anyone wanting a refresher.
Butterfly Girl: A Taste of Art Yarns
November 1, 1-3pm -
Wheels only – 2 hours
Class limit 5
Cost: $30
-          Intermediate – Must know how to use your wheel and must have some experience with spinning and plying
-          This class will give you a taste of how to spin art yarns based upon a “Thick and Thin” technique.  Remember your first yarn, how it was lumpy bumpy and had big fat parts and tiny thin parts with lots of character and texture?  In this class you will learn how to spin that type of yarn deliberately and then we will look at ways to ply a thick and thin yarn to achieve various textures and effects.
-          Would be best if student has jumbo flyer with a large orifice for one of the techniques (however, there are workarounds that we can do if necessary, so don’t let this keep you from taking the class)
-          Student should bring 6-8 ounces of fiber to class.  Students will need to bring a heavy thread/laceweight yarn to class (no fuzzy yarns or sewing thread)
-          Student will need to have enough empty bobbins to spin and ply or be able to quickly wind off or skein completed yarns.  Student will need to bring lazy kate  and niddy noddy if available(We will have some lazy kates available, but if you have one, please bring it as we may not have enough for the whole class).
Annual Holiday Hideaway
Hide from the Black Friday madness and come in for a quiet day at Knitting Fairy. No crazy sales, no crush of people at the door waiting to get in at 3am. Just the quiet, relaxing atmosphere you've come to expect at Knitting Fairy. Come sit and knit or crochet or whatever other project you need to work on and enjoy the conversation. There will, of course, be fresh cookies baking.

So come join us and relax away from the craziness on November 27th. (Knitting Fairy will, of course, be closed on Thanksgiving Day.)

Don't Despair, Repair!
Saturday October 17  1-4pm  $30 - HOMEWORK REQUIRED
Teacher: Alissa

What do you do when you find a dropped stitch, a whole or if the whole darned project just goes wrong? Alissa will help you sort through the options and maybe just save what you thought was totally hopeless. Learn how to back up, rip out and fix dropped stitches like a pro.

Hitofude Cardigan
A series of 4 classes, Saturday October 24, November 7, 14 and December 5, 1-3 pm
$60, plus pattern and materials

Teacher: Alissa

Knit along with us as we make this lovely fingering weight cardigan.  We have some fantastic yarns in stock from which to choose - take a look at Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere for real luxury or Cascade Heritage for a great sweater for work.  Japanese for "With a single brushstroke" this cardigan is knitting in one piece, the final bind-off is the only place you have to cut your yarn.  What really makes it shine is the blocking, which we will, of course, be covering in class.

Beginning Weaving Class 
Teacher: Mary Berry
Cost: $85 plus you will need 2 different colors of worsted weight (available in the shop).
Bring your lunch and a drink and join us for a full day of learning about looms, how to set them up, how to weave, and a host of "Best Practices" for weaving that will help you produce the best woven project ever! Leave with your own very first handwoven scarf! (Weaving tools and looms provided, or bring your own. A pair of scissors is a must have!) 
Saint Barnabas Bazzar
If you want to Christmas shop, but hate Black Friday, Knitting Fairy is the place to be!   All weekend, the Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church Crafty Hearts ladies will be at Knitting Fairy with selected items from their October Bazaar. We have”support” pillows for your IPad, IPhone or E-reader—great for reading and knitting and knitting or using your electronic devices to keep patterns.  Check out the tea cozies, spa baskets, and more.
All proceeds are designated for our Outreach projects. (Last year, St. Barnabas partnered with Knitting Fairy to provide resonance boards for children who are both deaf and blind. We also support health clinics, the local food pantry—a subsidiary of the Tarrant County Food Bank, and 2 low-income preschools.)
We will also be raffling at least two baskets—one will be Tea for Me and the other will be Leave Me Alone, It’s Chocolate. Tickets will be $1.00 each of 6 for $5.00. Drawing will be at 4:30 Sunday, and you don’t have to be present to win!
