Last Thursday’s Nuno Felting class was a huge success!

The participants mixed and matched their roving colors to create some stunning designs on their silk scarves.

Though the techniques were the same, every participant created something completely unique for the person next to them.  In just three hours, their masterpieces were finished!

We have only one spot left in our September Nuno Felting class. Check out the class schedule and give us a call to reserve your spot!

Customer Creations

We have seen some cool customer creations this month and we can’t wait to show them off!  You know how we love to brag about our talented customers.

claudia-cima

Claudia (no stranger to our Customer Creations column) recently knit this bobble pullover using Shibui Cima.  She dug the pattern out of a vintage magazine from the 80′s.  We love the colors she picked.  It’s such a fun spin on a retro design!

loretta-minis

Loretta stopped by last week to show off her amazing collection of miniatures.  All of her minis are completely self-designed.  She uses luxury fingering weight yarns and various scraps to create them.  They are truly one-of-a-kind!

ann-ripple

Ann dropped by to show off her Gusset Tunic (featured in the latest knit.wear magazine).  She used Tahki Ripple, a unique tape yarn that knits up with an incredible texture.
