FIBER SUNDAY & FIBER TRUNK SHOW!
Sunday, May 22, 2016, 12-3pm
 
This May, we're hosting our first annual Fiber Trunk Show! 
Rain or shine, we'll have local and independent vendors selling their fiber, notions & tools, and yarn in the parking lot. If you're interested in selling your wares at the trunk show, download our vendor application form (pdf) and return it to the shop by Monday, May 16.

 
 
May's Fiber Sunday open spinning has been moved from the third Sunday to May 22, 12-3pm to coincide with the Fiber Trunk Show. As always, this event is free to attend and open to all. We will not have our usual 1oz fiber samples because there will be plenty of fiber on offer in the parking lot.
 
 
 
UPCOMING CLASSES & GROUP MEETINGS

MONTHLY GRANNY SQUARE CAL (Crochet-Along) -- $5/session
Tuesday, May 3, 6-8pm
Instructor: Sherry Weeks.

Learn to crochet the “Granny Square” way: a timeless classic that can be used to create a whole array of items, from clothing and afghans to toys and household goods.  In this class, you will learn to make nine 12”x 12” granny squares that can then be incorporated into an afghan.
Techniques covered:  chains, single crochet, double crochet, weaving in ends.
Materials Needed:  one 200yd skein of worsted weight yarn (sample knitted in Encore); one crochet hook in size F, G, or H. All materials are available at In a Yarn Basket and discounted 10% for the class.
 
 
SOCKS-AND-SOCK-YARN CLUB -- free!
Wednesday, May 4, 5:30-7:30pm
 
Two hours of nothing but socks and/or anything knitted or crocheted with sock-weight yarn, and 15% off all regular-priced sock yarn!  Sock Club is not a beginning sock class, but questions are welcome!
 
 
RIGID HEDDLE SUPPORT GROUP -- free!
Tuesday, May 10, 5:30-7:30pm
 
Do you have a rigid heddle loom that you need to dust off and get warped? We hear you and are ready to help!  This "club" is a support group to help you warp that loom, encourage your creative side and get you weaving! As a courtesy to us and in the spirit of good manners, we ask that you work on projects with yarn you have purchased from our shop.
 

IN A YARN BASKET BOOK CLUB -- free!
Wednesday, May 11, 2016, 5:30-7:00pm

Book Club has no “official” membership and is FREE.  Please join us anytime the book selection piques your interest. Suggestions for future books are solicited and will be voted on by all. We will strive to choose books that are available in paperback, e-book, or Audible format to help keep costs down (and so you can save your money for yarn)!  Don’t forget to check the local library too.  Other advantages: You get to knit during the book club discussion! You’ll meet new friends, knit and chat away…oh, and snack! Feel free to bring goodies to share.

May's book selection is Clara Parkes' Knitlandia: A Knitter Sees the World, available in hardcover at the shop (for now...) and e-book.

 

Don't forget about our on-going events:  Lunch Bunch, Knit/Crochet Night, Fiber Sunday, Rigid Heddle Support Group, and more!
See our Classes & Special Events page for more information.
