Holiday Handmades Gift Bank

from paperyarnwire.com

open to everyone! (local and online)

Similar to a holiday savings account, paper and yarn is making it easier to get your holiday handmade gifts done in time for Christmas by spreading out the work through the year.

In our first installment we’ll make Fetching Mitts. The KAL(knit along) begins this February and the pattern is available as a free download from Knitty.com

This project is great for beginners and experience knitters.

Want to learn cables or how to use DPNs(double pointed needles)? Fetching Mitts are the perfect project for you!

A class will be available too, contact us for more details.

Join along and post a photo or two on our ravelry board … we’ll have several contest through out the year to help encourage a less stressful 2011 holiday season :)

..."The studio is an official go now, we've got a fresh coat of paint and primer in the main work area and more updates planned for spring.

Not having everything 100% over the last month has made me reconsider opening the space but; like everything else with this company it has a way of organically forming itself into what is needed, not necessarily what I have originally planned for it.

I'll be adding updates to the site this week, for some reason the calendar is giving me fits but if you click on an event, the proper date and time will show up in the description.

Mid-January will mark the beginning of open studio. So far the tentative plan is each week on Thursday from 4-8pm. This will be a time to pop in to see what new stuff we have brewing, get advise/assistance on a current project or ideas for a new project.

more details soon. "...
