New classes you aren’t going to want to miss!

The team here at Knit’n from the Heart has been busy preparing for this fall’s class offerings! Looking for a place to hone your knitting skills? Want to try your hand at felting or fair isle? How about the socks that have been on your bucket list?  Knit’n from the Heart’s class list can’t be beat this fall — and we’ve got a spot at our table just for you!

Heidi’s got the class for you if you are interested in trying your hand at beadwork! The pictures don’t do this beautiful piece justice! Sign up for the Beaded Shawlette – Monet’s Garden HERE — you won’t be disappointed in the beautiful piece of art you leave with upon completion of this class!

Fair Isle can seem like an intimidating task to add to your knitter’s tool box — but Judy takes this tall task and downsizes your first attempt! Sign up for the Norwegian Doll/Bear/Girl Sweater class HERE. Judy will get you started on a pint sized sweater to fit an American Girl Doll or Teddy Bear and move you on to a child sized sweater.

Pam is offering a class this fall that is hard to resist! Who wouldn’t want some of these sweet little, fall knits gracing their table tops?! Felting is an old world art form and fun none the less — sign up today for the Felted Fall Workshop HERE and get started on some fun – fall – felted projects with Pam!

We have a long list of great class offerings here at the Heart! Stop by the website to check out our full class offerings and sign up today! We hate to say this out loud . . . but Christmas is just around the corner! We have lots of opportunities to help you along your gift giving journey — we’re all busily preparing our lists as well. Looking forward to seeing you all in the shop!

Happy Knitting!

October is fast approaching . . .

It’s hard to even say this out loud — but we are already over half way thorough the month of September! GASP! With the return to school, and the turning of the leaves, so have conversations of  fascinating and unique costume ideas from the minds of my middle school aged girls. Long gone are the days of fairies and princesses!  I just can’t help but giggle when my daughter tells me she would like to dress as a banana this year. I guess I will have to knit the things of fairy tales for myself while my girls take their hand at comedic dressings.

As a fiber lover, I can’t help but turn the pages of these amazing books we have here at Knit’n from the Heart for whimsical and wizardly inspiration. Does anyone else reach for your needles when considering your Halloween wares?
