New from French General!

Newly arrived in the shop -- "Rouenneries Deux" by French General!

Here's the designer's description of this line --
"After spending many summers in France looking for the perfect French red, I finally found a collection of old prints that represented what rural life looked like in the 18th and 19th centuries. Based on our first collection of 'Rouenneries,' this group of lovely prints is inspired by the red florals that were printed in Rouenneries, France, in the 18th Century. Old French red, faded cranberry and natural linen colors all make up a collection that is a perfect combination to create a French-inspired quilt."

Whether you use only these in a quilt, or mix them with some of your favorite reds and creams, the finished quilt will be stunning!

New Classes for the New Year!

We've added lots of new classes and clubs to the website for your enjoyment in the New Year! Machine and hand techniques both, knitting classes to be held in our NEW location right around the corner!

That's right, we've moved all the Yarn to 116 South First Street (the Poor Richard's Building) and will be expanding that inventory to feature the finest yarns we can find. All our knitting and crochet classes and clubs will meet there.

Take a look and see what suits your fancy! Click here to see them on the website.

We've been having lots of fun making "Jelly Roll" Quilts -- Toni will be teaching this easy quilt (perfect for beginners, as the strips are already cut, you just start sewing) tomorrow, Saturday, January 14 from 9:30 to 2:30. We have a wonderful assortment of jelly rolls to choose from -- you will love making this for you or a friend!

Then on Sunday Danielle will begin her first session of Beginning Knitting at RL2 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. This will be a great way to celebrate our new second location. We'll also have a Grand Opening for RL2 on Monday, January 16 with resumption of "Knit Nite" -- every Monday from 5:30 to 7:30 pm (free to those who purchase supplies from us).

We'll feature more clubs and classes in the future!

Happy New Year!
