Winter Happenings at Chicks With Sticks

Chicks with Sticks logo

Wow.  Here we are at the end of January 2022. How did that happen?  Have you been spending these cold days playing with yarn?  After all that holiday gift crafting, this is the time to knit or crochet something for YOU!  We have a great selection of wool from Blue Sky Fibers, Berroco, Emma's Yarn, Juniper Moon Farms, Ella Rae, Noro, and more!

We still have beautiful Brediculous Yarn in the house!  We decided to turn that trunk show into a permanent thing.  Stop in and pick out something bright and squishy to perk you up while we await the March arrival of our fun summer yarns.

Is learning to do colorwork on your 2022 to-do list?  There is still time (and room) to sign up for the Rooftop Landing class.  The class will run February 8 and 15, 6-8pm.  The cost is $35 + materials (you'll get 20% off those materials!) A full description can be found here.

Beginning Knitting classes are offered monthly.  The next classes start Wednesday, February 9.  You can sign up for one or take the series of three classes (Beginning Knitting 1, 2, and 3).  Check our class list here or calendar here.

Another option for the newer knitter is our monthly "Building" classes.  This class meets one Saturday a month and helps you work through the Building Blocks, Building in Color, or Building in Lace books from Knit Purl Hunter / Skacel.  The class is a drop-in format and you can hop into the series at any time!  Info can be found on our website here.

   Does a project have you down?  Thursday night drop-in help sessions may be just what you need for those times you need a couple hours of assistance (or just moral support) on a project.  Sessions run from 6-8pm Thursday nights and cost $5.  Be sure to check our online calendar or give us a call as there may occasionally be a night when there is no class.  For example, there is no class this Thursday, February 3!

Thank you for making us your Local Yarn Shop!
