Fall Craft Along…Stitch Yourself

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Our Fall “craft” Along is going to be a fun one.  We are stitching ourselves!  In celebration of our 2 year anniversary.  So cool.  We are asking all of our customers to stitch themselves and send it or bring it in to us for display during our Anniversary week (Oct 10 – 16th).
.
Our goal is to get 50 of you to stitch yourselves for a window display.  We are proud of the customers we have met over the last 2 years and we want to show you off!  How fun will it be to see 50 of us in our front window?
.
The very creative force behind Stitch London has created the patterns and she is excited that we are going to stitch ourselves too!
.
The pattern will be available at the shop, or you can download via Ravelry here.  Here are a few of the finished ones we love!

Aren’t they awesome?  They are 6″ tall and so fun!
.
The knit pattern is pretty easy…double pointed needles and some creativity will get you far!  You are a newbie knitter?  Don’t worry, as long as you can knit and purl, we’ll teach you the rest.  You are only limited by your imagination.
.
There is a crochet and a sewn pattern too, so don’t think you can’t participate if you don’t knit!
.
If you aren’t local, you can still participate.  Mail them to us and include an address to mail it back and we’ll send it back to you after it visits with us for a while.
.
Come on…join the fun.  You can do this on your own, or come to a night along night or a study hall time for extra help and some laughs with the rest of us.
.
Hummm…so…wonder if I have time to knit 12 tiny sweaters for my “mini me”?

Fiber Fun Parties…not just for kids!

Monday, October 11th, 2010

You might know that we throw a mean kids party here at Darn Knit Anyway.  Check out the details here.

Fiber Birthday Party

.
We want you to know that you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a fiber fun party.  We have parties for moms groups, baby showers and family/friends reunions. We think our shop would be the perfect place for you to have a work retreat afternoon.  Maybe for a holiday event?
.

We just had a group of moms and daughters in the shop for a crafty party.  Moms and daughters alike enjoyed the fun.  Check out the great review below!

Dear Carly,
.

WOW!!!  All I can say is that everyone was so IMPRESSED with everything about Darn. Knit. (Anyway)!  Carly, you are an awesome teacher.  Your patience was wonderful.  I LOVE how you rolled with the ideas that girls had, like turning their beads into clips.  You taught our girls how to sew.  How cool was that!  The shop is charming with lots of beautiful projects and gorgeous yarns.  I’m so happy I “won” this auction item, otherwise I fear I never would have stumbled into this AMAZING shop.  Thank you for giving us a SUPERB experience.  After shopping at the seasoning store and then having dinner at Leo’s, we all decided that we had had a perfect afternoon in Stillwater, and want to come back again.  You represent Stillwater well.
.

Many thanks!  I am sure I’ll be back!
.

Sincerely,
.

Deb and Amelia
Kim, Patricia and Kiana, Kris and Abby, Nina and Hana
