Weekend Knit JacketWeekend Knit Jacket

“Distinctive, dashing and very easy. The main body of this coat is worked from side to side, which of course enables the yarn’s variegation to run vertically up your body and lengthen it (as well as your legs). The stitch pattern doesn’t get more complicated than combinations of garter stitch and knit/purl. And yet it has a rich tapestry effect that’s intensely pleasing.” - from the designer
Join us for this quick knit using James C. Brett Marble Chunky yarn. There will be two samples to try on in Size Large and X-Large.

Quinoa Knit A Long

Join us in October and November for a Knit A Long with a new yarn called Quiona. It is a cotton and nylon yarn that has a slightly pebbled texture. The yarn has contrasting shades that creates a unique fabric that creates lightweight knitted pullovers and accessories.

You can choose any of the six patterns in the Berroco Quinoa Booklet for the KAL. There are two shawls, two pullover tops, a cardigan and a capelet. The cardigan sweater, Freer, is the sample in the shop. The yarn is so nice to knit with and the garments have a wonderful appearance.

Stash Busters

We all have fabric we want to use up.    We love to go to the quilt shop, and every time we do, something jumps out at us and says "Buy me!!!"  and so we do.  When we get home, we remember how our shelves are overflowing without room for much more.  We love to buy the new fabrics, but are having an increasingly difficult time doing so because of our bursting shelves!  If this describes you (it describes us!), then we have just the solution!!! 

Beginning in January, Silver Thimble is offering you some help with this problem.  We are starting a "Stash Busters" group.  Here is how it will work.  Sign up for Stash Busters!  Cost is $40 per year.  Stop in during January and get your first pattern. 

Bring your finished (we don't need more UFOs!) quilt back to the shop by the end of March and get entered into a drawing, (we will also have a small gift for just finishing your quilt).  Pick up a new pattern in April, finish it by end of June, pick up a new pattern in July and finish in September, and pick up in October and finish in December.  There is no need to purchase new fabric.  We strongly urge you to pull from your stash.  There is no rule against purchasing new fabric, however.  Sometimes a packet of old fabrics are really refreshed by the addition of 1-2 new ones. 

In December 2018, we will have a "reveal" party where you can bring your quilts, show them off, and participate in prize drawings.  All patterns are included with your entrance fee.  During the year, we will complete 4 quilts. So, sign up and let's get started!

UFO Club

A Dozen Dishies!

We had so much fun in 2017 we decided to continue with the Dishies.  Join in the fun of learning more knit stitches and patterns by making a new dish cloth each month of the new year!

You will pick up your pattern and yarn on or after the first of each month to complete your monthly dish cloth.  We will not meet as a club, but you are welcome to attend the shop knit days to work on yours or get assistance if you are stuck.  Cost of the club will be $6.00 per month.

Crochet Club

If you enjoy hand work with other like-minded souls, Crochet Club is for you.  We will come together once a month to work on squares for an afghan or, just bring along whatever crochet project you have going, and we will include Show & Share, chat a bit, and learn from each other.
