Stitch Adventure Sale at Dances with Wool

jennifer+Raymond+teachingI’ve talked a little bit about my new partnership with Dances With Wool, a yarn store just outside of Richmond, VA.  I’m super excited to be able to teach at this wonderful, vibrant new store.  It’s been a while since I’ve been able to teach weekly classes, and to develop many of the relationships that I loved when I taught at Woolwinders.

This week we’re running a sale on a particular type of class – our inaugural Stitch Adventure class.  What is Stitch Adventure?  It’s a class that gives you the benefits of a private lesson – flexibility and ability to cover a variety of topics, with the community aspect of a class.

Stitch Adventure classes can be a great way to tackle a new project that you need a little help on.  If you want to be held accountable to finishing a project up, we can do that.  And if you need help picking a project and finding the right yarn, the instructor is right there for you.  Each class you can bring in a new project – it doesn’t matter if it is knitting or crochet, since I can help you with both!

Right now the Stitch Adventure class is discounted 25% off – so sign up before we start on February 1st.  The class with run Wednesdays, Feb 1, 8, 15, 22  7-8 PM.

I’ll see you there!

Indie Designer Giftalong

I’ve been rather delinquent in posting about this, but I figure better late than never, eh?

This year I’m participating in the Indie Designer Giftalong.  What is a giftalong you ask?  Well, considering how the holidays are a stone’s throw away (I know, don’t remind me!), this means if you are planning on knitting or crocheting for the holidays, time is running out.

A bunch of designers (over 150!) have decided to help the holiday crafters out, creating a sale of 25% off that runs from November 1-15th.  This is partnered with a Knit-a-long (KAL) or Crochet-a-long (CAL) to help people stay motivated to finish holiday gifts.  All along the way, there are great prizes that participants can win.

So, information:

There’s a Ravelry Group for the Giftalong.
