hey crafty cats and knitty kittens!

*CRAFT've asked, and we've brought them back! They start next week! And we FINALLY are offering a sewing class! Jump on it! ;)

(Fri Oct 8th 6:30-8:30p will be rescheduled soon!
with Cal Patch, author of "Design-It-Yourself Clothes"

Do you have a sewing machine in your closet, but have never used it? Or you want to sew, but the last time you stitched anything up was in Home Ec class in 8th grade? If you are looking for a low-commitment class to get acquainted with your machine (or reacquainted with the art of sewing), this is the one for you! In this 3-hour session, you will learn how to thread a machine and wind a bobbin, sew a simple seam, and hem edges. You will make either a pillowcase, tote bag, or drawstring pouch. From this start you'll have a foundation for moving on to all kinds of sewing projects, and your machine may just become your very BEST friend! Note: You can bring your own machine or use one of ours; please let us know when you register. $70)

Sun Oct 10th 6:30-8:30p
INTRO TO KNITTING with Lydia Austin
Knitting isn't just for squares! Learn to caste on cast off with fiber savant Lydia Austin as you knit your own beer coozie! In this beginner knitting class, Lydia Austin will teach everyone how to knit using chunky knitting needles. We will be making beer coozies that kind of look like beer can sweaters (but not with sleeves or anything too cheesy like that). They are the perfect thing for autumn barbecues and chilly bonfire parties to keep your beers cold and hands toasty. Totally great for the fall season and also perfect for gifts! Yarn, beers, and treats will all be provided. Makes a great holiday gift! Did we mention beers included ;). $40

Sun Oct 17th 6:30-8:30p

JUNK TO JEWELS with Treehouse owner and designer of Sirius Lux Siri Wilson
Ever wonder what to do with all those beads and baubles from Grandma's closet? Or do you need yet another reason to keep hoarding broken necklaces and single earrings? Well here's your answer! In just one two hour session you'll learn the basics of jump ring usage, as well as chain layering and clasping. All this will be done with cut apart treasures and loose bead findings. We'll provide the know how and lotsa junk, feel free to bring your own baubles as well. Treehouse's own Siri will show you how it's done! tasty treats and refreshing beverages provided too! $40
