While you're preparing for your holiday knits and gifts, please note on your calenders our special winter hours. We will be closed a few days around the holidays, but we are extending our hours leading up to Christmas so you can be sure to get all your holiday shopping done in time.
We hope you have a warm, cozy and wonderful time with family and friends this holiday season!
You have always wanted to knit...now's the time! Learn the basics of casting-on, knitting, purling & binding-off. This is designed as a very beginner course, however can be great as a refresher course or to aide in starting a new project as well. Class will run every Sunday (unless noted), so you can work at your own pace. Take the full series of 5 or just drop-in for one.
Just in time for Christmas, we are extending our hours December 22nd and 23rd so you can have more time to do that last minute shopping. We will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and then we are closed December 24th, 25th and 26th. We've still got great stocking stuffers including Mizuba Tea's Matcha, Twenty-Four Blackbirds' hot chocolate kits, cute and custom hat kits, LOTS of handmade bags from Raven's Rags, tons of hand-dyed, unique yarn and, of course, gift cards. Don't forget to stop in (or to tell your friends and family to stop in) before Christmas!
Happy holidays from the Loop & Leaf crew, and we can't wait to ring in the new year with you!
