Join us on Sunday, October 5 from 9-11 AM for a Shibui Mix party!  What’s a Shibui Mix party, you ask?

The purpose of this event is to learn how to combine different yarns, textures and even colors to create entirely new fabrics.  Marge Oakley (Shibui yarn rep) and designer Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits will be here to guide participants through the process of mixing.  Take a chance on some unlikely combinations and see where your creativity will take you!  Yarn and patterns will be provided.  Just bring a selection of needles!

Machine Knitting Demo

Curious about machine knitting, but don’t know where to start? Come by the shop on Saturday, August 23rd for a free machine knitting demo!

Instructor Jillian Carrozza began specializing in knitwear design at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City ten years ago.  She went on to study at the world-renowned Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London where she gained invaluable industry experience from internships at design studios in Europe, such as Knit-1 in Brighton, England and John Galliano in Paris, France.  Trained in both industrial and domestic machine knitting, the designer’s acclaimed graduate collection was entirely hand crocheted from original patterns for textile structures she engineered.  Having recently returned to the west coast from New York City, Jillian looks forward to sharing her knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with the knitting community of San Francisco.

She will be here at the shop at 11 AM on August 23rd to host a machine knitting demo.  Since we offer private lessons on machine knitting, joining us first for the demo will be a great way to figure out if the lesson will be right for you.  We’ll look forward to seeing you then!
