We’ve received some fun new stuff recently, including these adorable dpn holders and the latest plaids from the Faribault Woolen Mill.
We’ve added another new class to our offerings this winter: Felted Soaps!
Felted soaps are fun to make and a great gift for any occasion. The project is also a rewarding introduction to the creative wet-felting process. During the class session, you’ll learn why wool felts, which fibers felt best, and how to encase a bar of soap in a decorative layer of felt using just a little bit of wool roving, warm water, and some elbow grease. By the end of the session, you’ll have at least one bar of felted soap to take home — and very clean hands!
The class meets on December 6th from 6-7:30pm. Contact the shop for more information or to register.
Saturday, October 15th, is I Love Yarn Day, and we are showing our love for yarn on Facebook and Instagram. On Facebook, if you participate in the effort to Yarnbomb Facebook, and add #northfieldyarn to your posts, we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a prize. (Posts must be public so we can find them.) If you want to join in the fun on Instagram, find our post from earlier this week for another chance to win a prize.
Also, it’s not too late to sign up for our Fall Finishing Frenzy, which starts on Saturday, October 15th. It’s completely free, and it works like this: commit to finishing a certain project, or projects, of your choosing — whatever WIPs have been dragging a bit and need a little nudge. Then you have six weeks to work diligently on your goal, and at the end we reward ourselves with a party (on Saturday, December 3rd at 5pm), collective appreciation of our creations, and small prizes for the proud Finishers. You can sign up online with this link, and contact that shop if you want more information.
Learn how to create your own forest of garlanded trees for the holiday table, mantel piece, or last minute gift-giving! These cute little trees are a great stash-buster that works up quickly, and once you learn the method of construction, you’ll be tempted to create endless variations from the materials you have on hand. Knowledge of basic crochet stitches is required, and you’ll learn how to put those stitches together to make the “crocodile stitch” that forms the overlapping branches of these little trees. Sundays, December 4 & 11. Call or stop by shop for more details.
