Holiday Hideaway

Thanksgiving Weekend at Knitting Fairy

For many people it seems the rush from Thanksgiving to the New Year is all about buying - but to ME, the time between the end of November and January 1st is more about telling the people in my life how much I love and appreciate them. I do this in two ways - I cook for them, a lot, and I knit. Hats, socks, afghans, this year - new Christmas stockings for my daughter's new family, and yes, I even knit a sweater or two.

I would like to invite you to come by the shop Thanksgiving weekend. We don't got crazy with decorations and music and there are no special hours. Just come knit or crochet with us - we'll be making fresh cookies all weekend AND we will have something extra special this year - the Monday craft group from St. Barnabas Episcopal Church of Denton will be here with their reprisal of their wildly successful "Holiday Craft Bazaar" on Friday, November 27th through Sunday, November 29th 10am to 5pm. All proceeds from their sales go directly to their community outreach fund, which last year helped us provide the materials to make three resonance boards for deaf/blind children!

Thank you for all your love and support - our friends and family make the holidays special.

Core Spinning Class
Sunday, December 13, 1-4pm
Corespinning – Wheel only – 3 hours – class limit 5

Intermediate – Must know how to use your wheel and have some experience with spinning and plying

Corespinning adds a new dimension to your spinning repertoire.  This is the process of using a commercial core yarn and spinning your fiber around it (There are many variations to this technique including using your own singles or spinning your core at the same time you are corespinning, but this class will focus on using a commercial yarn as your core.  Teacher may demo the other techniques as time allows).  During this class, we will learn how to spin a smooth core yarn, how to spin locks onto a core and tailspinning  locks.

Student will need to bring 3-4 ounces of fiber to corespin, 2 ounces of locks from any breed (kid mohair is fun) and 4 ounces of locks from a long wool breed (such as Lincoln, Wensleydale or Teaswater)

Cost $30 plus a $10 kit fee that covers the 
core yarns which will be provided
Coming February 11-14, 2016
