Summertime and the Knitting is Easy! Camps for Kids & Parents, Too!

Hey Y'all,
School's out and you know what that means: It's time for CAMP HCW 2012! In addition to our great camps, we've connected with ParentWise, the local magazine with all sorts of great info for parents. Our CAMP HCW flier, which includes a 15% off yarn coupon, will be distributed in the goodie bags being handed out at Children's Day Art Park this summer.

What's Children's Day Art Park, you ask? It's a cool event for kids and parents that happens Wednesday mornings, 9:30 - 11:30 am, June 13 - July 25 (except for July 4). The event is at Symphony Square Amphitheatre at 1101 Red River in downtown Austin. Cost is 50c for kids and free for adults who accompany kids. There will be music, crafts, storytellers, dancers and lots and lots and LOTS of fun. We're excited to be included in the gift bags the kids will receive.

Now, about our camps. For all of the details:

Here's some basic info:

We've got weeklong camp sessions happening in June, July, and August! We've got Knitting Camp and also Weaving Camp. Weaving Camp happens during the first half of the day, and Knitting Camp happens in the afternoon, so kids who'd like to attend both can do that and there's a discount if you sign up for the combo.

Also, we're introducing a new camp: K1P2, a two-part class for parents and kids who want to learn knitting together! Actually, you don't have to bring your parent-- you can bring an aunt, uncle, grandparent, or other enthusiastic adult. There are sessions available in June, July and August.


Spaces are limited and camps do sell out, so please check the links listed above to get the skinny. Cost for materials is included in some classes, and for other classes it's extra-- that's listed on the web pages, too. You can call during store hours to register: 512-707-7396.

Don't miss out on the fun! We'll see you at CAMP HCW and Symphony Square for Children's Day Art Park!
