Summer is the hardest time to pick up your needles but we’ve got you covered. Sign up for an exclusive StevenBe class or drop by for some group knitting to find your motivation. We know you’ll wish you had finished that Ponchini come fall weather. Here’s what’s coming up this month:
July 12th, 11 to 7 : Halos of Hope Charity Knitting Event
Come to StevenBe’s and knit for a cause! Halos of Hope is a nonprofit organization committed to providing volunteer crafted hats to cancer centers. Stop by any time and do some knitting! Yarn will be available for a minimal fee.
We are also offering a chance to destash for the cause. Bring in your unwanted yarn, full or partial skeins will be accepted, in balls, cakes, or skeins. Sort it up and bag it up! You’ll receive $1 per pound on store credit and 15% off your yarn purchase July 12th.
July 13th, 5-7: Sock It To Me: Sock Knitters’ Group
If you’ve fallen head over heels for sock knitting, join us for our sock knitters night. Knit and bond over all things sock with other knitters. Make sure to register! Each knitter will have his/her name entered in a very special drawing to kick off our first meetup!
July 17th, 1 to 3: Beginning Knitting Meetup
Let us take you through the basics of creating your first knitting project. Learn yarn and needle basics, cast-on, the knit stitch, and a simple bind-off. In this 2-hour session you will be well on your way to your first cowl!
Beginner kits are available at the store, and if you purchase one, your class fee will be refunded. If you would prefer to purchase supplies elsewhere, you will need a size US 11 circular needle with a 24″ length, and a bulky yarn with at least 109 yards. Check in with the store for information about the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th project requirements.
We are so excited to help you begin your knitting adventure! Register here!
July 19th, 5:30 to 7:30: StevenBE Creative Series- Find your Color Calling and Embrace your Fiber Future
Students will examine their color choices to determine their favorites and the ones they avoid. In the class they will discover new color
combinations and learn to make color work for them by exploring different techniques. Combining color into their work by alternating rows of color or holding two different colors together in their work. They can take it a step further by combining different textures along with different colors to add interest to whatever project they are knitting.
