Sunday Sit and Knit

Sunday Sit and Knit

When Amanda and I went into business together we had a dream to create a place where people could come together and share in their love of all things fiber and know that they belong.

10009307_10151972662257747_1685882102_nWe encourage our customers to stop by to see what’s new, bring in your projects or questions, join the table or sit on the couches and knit a while, or just pop in to say hi.

We aren’t just another local yarn shop, we want to be YOUR Local Yarn Shop! 1924444_714906791862941_547241187_n

YARN – Although yarn is the most prominent offering in the shop, spinning and weaving supplies are also available. Extended hours and a knowledgeable staff make it easier for customers to find the items they are looking for.

HELPING – Although private lessons can be scheduled when one-on-one help is necessary, many problems can be fixed in just a few minutes at no charge to the customer. Early week is the best time to catch us in a quiet moment but we will always try our best to get a knitter moving forward on a project.

CLASSES –  We want to share our knowledge with EVERYONE!! Our staff is excited to share their skills and encourage new knitters to expand their knitting repertoire. Each class is designed for a student to learn a new technique while working on a project suited to their level of experience.   Take a look at our calendar of classes/events and see what we have to offer.

LOCAL ARTISTS – We want to show you what our local small businesses have to offer! There are many independent dyers, knitters, spinners and wood workers in the local area and we are excited to be able to offer their specialty items in our shop. We currently offer:

TRUNK SHOWS – We’re planning several events with local dyers as well as some commercial yarn retailers. Check our Calendar to see who’s coming soon to Cloverhill Yarn Shop!

GATHERINGS – Although the shop has scheduled weekly and bi-weekly get-togethers,  customers are always encouraged to drop in and knit, crochet or spin their worries away. We want the shop to be a place our customers will enjoy as much as we do. If your group is looking for a place to sit and knit during the day, give us a call! We might just be the new home your group is looking for.

Thursday night “Sit and Knit” is from 6pm – close, every Thursday.  This group is happy and cheerful and loves to lure you into the fold!!  With a wide variety of ages and interests,  this group has something for everyone. Bring your wheel if you want, we’ve got plenty of spinners in this group!

Sunday “Sit and Knit” is officially from 2pm – 4pm every Sunday, but people usually start arriving around 1 pm and stay after 4pm. With lots of knowledgeable people together in one room there’s always someone who knows the answer to any knitting question. We also have several spinners who come with wheels or supported spindles and it’s always fun to watch!

Friday Night Spinning is on the second and last Friday of every Month. This night is for you my dear spinner. We move the tables and order pizza and we spin our hearts out. Not a spinner? Don’t worry if you come by someone will try and convert you. We have several wheels in the shop that are available to try. If you’d like to knit while the others spin that’s cool, come on over we’ve got room for you too!
