WWKIP, Hand Felted Bag, Knitting 202

Hi Folks,

Just a few quick updates on upcoming excitement...

Hand Felted Bag Workshop - learn how to create felted fabric from roving (ie. unspun hand-dyed wool) and fashion it into a fun & funky tote bag! No knitting or crocheting! At the end of the class you will have a finished bag that only needs to be dried. Space is limited and filling up fast!
Sunday, June 10th, 10 am - 4 pm; $120 (includes all materials)

Knitting 202 - if you've ever wanted to learn how to knit, assemble, and finish a sweater professionally, take this four-session class with master knitter Sheila Thall. It takes place every other Saturday morning starting June 9th, giving you plenty of time to complete each section of the class project - a simple kids sweater.
Saturdays June 9, 23, July 7, 21: 10 am - Noon; $75

World Wide Knit In Public Day (WWKIP) is fast approaching: Saturday, June 9th. We are hosting a WWKIP event out in the plaza in front of the store starting at Noon. Bring your knitting (or crocheting) projects, sun screen, a wide-brimmed hat, or other sun projection, and a bottle of water! It will most likely be sunny and warm during the afternoon. There will also be lots of activity: the annual Italian Street Painting Festival takes place a mere block away at the intersection of 5th and A streets. Extremely talented artists from around the country converge on San Rafael to create amazing works of art in the middle of the street using sidewalk chalk! There will be food vendors and live music throughout the weekend. More importantly, downtown will be filled with creative-minded people admiring other people's creativity. Let us show our community what a great past time knitting and crocheting can be!
