>We’re hosting a Silpada party in the store, and you’re invited! If you’ve never heard of Silpada, it’s a fantastic jewelry line that only sells through home (or, in our case, store) parties. Their main draw is the sterling silver jewelry, such as this:
But they also have other beaded items and other styles of jewelry:
Anyway, the event is on Thursday evening from 6 – 8 pm, so come and see all of the fabulous pieces!
>Well, by now I hope everyone knows that Maggie Jackson is at 3 Kittens this week doing a couple of workshops for us today and tomorrow (there’s still room if you want to join us), plus a fashion show of the garments from her books this morning at 10 am.
Last night, Cis was doing a presentation at the Minnesota Knitters’ Guild meeting about new fall products, and Maggie asked if she could come along to do a mini fashion show. The Guild agreed. Maggie was great – very funny, gregarious and with loads of info regarding designing and knitting. Here are some photos:
Cis and Julie were the main models, although Maggie asked volunteers from the audience to help out as well. The last item pictured above is made completely out of squares that are then sewn together
>3 Kittens will be hosting a Silpada Sterling Silver Party on Thursday, August 30th, from 6p – 8p. Be sure to stop by and see all of the latest in fall fashion accessories. You can get a preview by visiting the Silpada web site http://www.silpada.com.
>As most of you probably know by now, I broke my leg while on a trip to Duluth and had to have surgery last Wednesday. Since I can’t be in the store, I’ve been stitching up a storm at home. Here’s a photo of my most recently completed sample for the store:
This is the Whirlwind Scarf by Christine Furber for iKnitiatives. It’s made out of Berocco Suede – obviously 3 colors. This was a fun, cool project to knit…
Keep checking back, and as I get more store samples done, I’ll post photos of them.
So, much going on with all of the Fall yarns arriving, events to plan, and most importantly a ton of work to get the Fall class schedule completed and published before the end of this week!
You might have noticed on an earlier blog that Knitchique Sheryl has the Moebius Bowl offered five different sessions…and I want to tell you about the change in fee structure I have made to our Thursday night W.I.P. sessions. Starting with this month, August, W.I.P. fees will be $20 for the calendar month, so even when there are 5 Thursdays, the fee will still be $20! At least once every month, a yarn representative will sit in with us and talk about what’s new & educate us about their different yarn companies! I will be the “regular” W.I.P. instructor with qualified substitutes to fill in on those rare occasions I might not be available.
Drop-ins are welcome, space available, for $10 a session. W.I.P. nights are a great way to get one-on-one assistance with those works in progress, meet new friends, meet industry insiders, keep up with all of the latest trends, and knit!
I’m off to LA next week for my 40th high school reunion, so lots of work to to before departure and lots of fun activities to return home to!
Thank you for supporting 3 Kittens Needle Arts!
