Yarn, Yarn, Yarn!

gorgeous shawl on a beautiful model!

You all have got to come in and see all the gorgeous yarn we have been getting in! Doesn't Gloria look beautiful in her new shawl? It is made from jojoland's Melody, superwash wool! This self-striping yarn can be used for socks, shawls, anything you would need a fingering/sock yarn for. We have several colorways and it's still not too late to knit a sweet shawl or scarf for those cool spring evenings.

We have also just received more laceweight yarn and some beautiful artyarns beads and sequins silk yarn that is to die for! Take a look at our online photo gallery to get inspiration for your next project.  And remember, every Friday at Sew Bee It is Sit 'n' Knit from 10am-12noon.  Come by and sit a while and relax in our lovely knitting studio.  We would love to meet you!

January Sale & First Quarter Class Schedule

We just got our new class schedule updated and made available for you to download. We are offering some exciting new classes and Block of the Month Clubs for your enjoyment. One club we are extremely excited about is the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt.

In 1922, The Farmer's Wife magazine posed this question to their readers: "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in light of your own experience, have her marry a farmer?" The magazine at that time had 750,000 subscribers, and received over 7,000 letters. The best answers to this question are included in this book, along with the traditional quilt blocks they inspired.

The Farmer's Wife

The quilt in the book uses reproduction prints for the blocks and is absolutely stunning! Jayne Henson will be leading this group and we are really looking forward to it!

And to help you stock up your sewing room for the year to come, you will receive 15% off of all notions and patterns for the month of January. Come in and get everything you need to start on all those new projects!

Look for more exciting news to come as we are anticipating some big changes here at Sew Bee It in the coming year!
