So Much Going On!

Hey Y'all,
Well there's a lot going on down at the store. First things first, in case you haven't heard the splendid news, Kathy & Leif had their baby on November 21st. Welcome to the world Athena Rose! As soon as we have some pictures of the latest addition to HCW, we'll post them here.

Next big news-- tomorrow is First Thursday and this month, to celebrate the event (and also the upcoming holidays and also to celebrate the weather forecast for SNOW!!!) you SAVE 20% off yarns of color (not including black and white yarns and not including already marked down merch.) Also, take 15% off books & bags...great holiday gifts!!

Speaking of gifts, there are also several Knit Purl Express classes coming up. These two hour, twenty dollar classes are a great way to offer the gift of knitting to a friend. You know what they say-- "Give a man a pair of hand knit mittens and he keeps his hands warm until he loses one mitten. Teach a man to knit and he stays warm forever!" Let me, once again, go on and on (and on) about how much I love, love, love taking classes at HCW. Not only do I learn a lot, I also get to be part of the community. Here's the schedule for Knit Purl Express classes:

December 2 KNIT PURL EXPRESS 6:30p 8:30p
December 6 KNIT PURL EXPRESS 3:00p 5:00p
December 16 KNIT PURL EXPRESS 6:30p 8:30p
December 20 KNIT PURL EXPRESS 3:00p 5:00p

But wait-- THERE'S MORE!!

Have you been meaning to learn Continental knitting just to test if it's really faster? And, like me, do you keep putting off learning? Well on December 12, Deb is teaching a class from 10 - 1 ($40) so you can finally figure out how it's done. And if you've never had a class with Deb (or if you have) I promise you, you will manage to learn and laugh at the same time.

Can you believe I'm still not done yet?

Our ongoing Hip to Knit series-- which happens every first Sunday-- is coming right up this Sunday, December 6th. Aimed to teach kids and teens how to knit, the class runs from 2 - 5. Plus we're starting up Hip to Weave, from 1 - 3. Classes, taught by Lindsay, are $20. Parents are welcome to attend and Lindsay is happy to help y'all pick out just the right project to work on.

To save a spot in any of these classes, call the store: 707-7396. Or better yet, make a reservation while you're shopping on Fyber Thursday.

See ya soon,
