We'll also be hosting a special Open Knit/Crochet/Spin night on Friday, July 28th starting at 6pm. Come shop the NGY trunk show and spend some time working on your latest projects. Bring your favorite beverage and $5 for pizza!
Wool! What Is It Good For?! -- 10-11:30a -- $25
So many breeds, so little time! Don't get stuck in a Merino rut, discover the unique properties of Polwarth, Shetland, Blue Faced Leicester and more! In this lecture we will discuss a selection of different wool breeds & blends, their characteristics, and projects they may be best suited for. We will cover characteristics of the wools and blends as they relate to spinners, knitters, and crocheters.
Hand Painted Skeins -- 1-4p -- $75 (includes supplies)
If you've ever wanted to dye your own yarn, here's your chance! Play with color as Christa guides you through how to paint skeins of yarn in this hands-on workshop. All supplies will be provided and you'll leave with one full skein and 5 mini-skeins of custom sock yarn! (Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting messy or bring an apron.)
Wine & Paint Night! -- 7-10p -- $75 (includes supplies)
Join us for a wine and paint party with a twist! Enjoy wine, beer, and treats while Christa shows you how to paint your own sock blank! You'll leave with a one-of-a-kind dyed sock blank that will make an amazing knit or crochet project.
