Knitting with Beads Class

Alexandra’s Crafts

Knitting with beads!

 

No more counting those 1055 beads only to find at the end that you’ve miscounted and only have 1051. You’ll learn how to add beads to your knitting, as you go, using a crochet hook!

Friday Jan 16th or Saturday Jan 17th

 

                           Friday’s project will be, Alexandra’s Crafts Bling Thing Scarf

While for a different look Saturday’s project will be Alexandra’s Crafts Beaded Diamond Lace Scarf.

Class Fee $20 and includes pattern. All other materials sold separately. Yarn required is one skein of Alexandra’s 5 different fingering weight yarns and we have a huge selection to choose from!  We highly recommend registering and purchasing yarn by Jan 10th to allow plenty of time to find the perfect beads to go with your yarn.  Alexandra will have multiple styles of crochet hooks from your very basic, to ones with custom made handles with clay or Oregon specialty woods, also available for purchase.

Seahawk colors are in the house!

I cannot describe how amazing of a time we had at our trunk show/anniversary celebration last week!  Thank you to all that attended.  

Out of that, we got Alexandra to custom dye us some Seahawk colored yarn.  We just received it today and boy did she not disappoint!  We have 3 different weights, fingering, dk, and worsted.  Gather your patterns or browse our huge selection and get in here! The sky is the limit on what you could make with this selection of yarns….Hats, gloves, blankets, sweaters, socks, slippers, home d├ęcor.  For all you Seahawk fans, the sky’s the limit!

Save The Date

I can hardly even believe this, but we are celebrating 10 years in business this month, which just proves that time sure does fly when you are having fun!

In honor of our milestone, we will be having a trunk show on October 10th and 11th.  I am so excited this year to be featuring a Northwest Local hand-dyer, Alexandra’s Crafts from Silverton, OR.  Her yarns are bea-u-ti-ful!!!! She came to visit a few weeks ago with a small amount of her stash and I couldn’t resist getting a small amount of my favorite called Black Butte.  It is a fingering weight made of Silk/Yak/Superwash wool….it is amazing!  Here was a one skein project that I was able to bust out in a couple weeks

If that isn’t reason enough to come in, we will also be having Karen’s cupcakes!  Fabulous yarn,  delicious cupcakes, and a piping hot latte….It just doesn’t get much better Winking smile
