First Thursday Sale Coming Right Up! Plus More Classes!

Yep, it's already time for another First Thursday-- February 4th. This month, you can get 10% off all books, needles, patterns and booklets. Plus, to make way for all the new Spring yarn that's on the way, we need to clear out some of the winter stock. All yarns that are at least 50% animal fiber are 20% off (Silk and already discounted yarn excluded). So come on down.

Meanwhile, still more classes are coming right up. Here's the skinny on the Wet Felted Valentines Class and the Spin 101 Class.

WET FELTED VALENTINES (pictured above)
February 12
10:00 - 2:00
50.00 (take 3 wet felt classes for 130.00)

Remember your valentines this year with handmade pomanders. Using the resist technique to from, and your creativity to decorate, we will wet felt wooly hearts. These pastel examples were made from a hand dyed palette of pencil roving, but you may prefer red or pink! I put some lavender flowers in the smaller ones for a calming sensual appeal. Gather up some fleece and unspun yarn and join us. It won't be as vigorous a workout this time, but we may still need some chocolate to get in the mood.

No experience necessary.

Bring a few towels, a scissors, needle and thread.

Hill Country Weavers has a nice selection of fleece and roving and felting needles for you to purchase.

I will have lavender, and chocolate∑my salutation,
