so much fun with Susan B Anderson!

We had a great Book Signing Event with Susan last night!

Thanks to all of you who came to meet Susan and to see her adorable creations.  And thanks for bringing along your own animals for us to ooh and ahh at.  So many sweet critters!

In case you weren’t able to make it to the shop last night, she signed some extra books for us.  Stop by for your copy of any of her fantastic 4 books:  Spud and Chloe at the Farm, Itty-Bitty Nursery, Itty-Bitty Hats, and Itty-Bitty Toys.

For more inspiration, check out Susan’s blog and the Spud & Chloe blog .  Lots of clever ideas!

We enjoyed welcoming Susan to our shop for the second time.  Thanks Susan for such a fun evening!


Susan B. Anderson event Friday June 17th!

Exciting News!  We’re hosting Susan B. Anderson for a book signing featuring her wonderful new book, SPUD & CHLOË at the FARM.

Susan will be at the shop this Friday, June 17th from 5-7 pm.

Stop by to meet her, get your book signed, and admire her wonderfully clever creations.  There will be refreshments, discounts, and giveaways.

SPUD & CHLOË at the FARM is a unique knit-and-read book for children and adults.  It provides a genuine opportunity for the knitter and child to bond as they get to know the story’s characters, discuss their knitting progress, and choose which toy to knit next.

The characters in SPUD & CHLOË at the FARM include Chloë, the little girl, Spud, an introverted but lovable sheep, a mother hen and her chicks, three little piglets, and a little black lamb.  The book also offers patterns for making an assortment of farm props including a picket fence, bales of hay, dainty baskets, and a three-sided foldable barn.

Susan B. Anderson is also the author of three other popular knitting books:  Itty -Bitty Nursery, Itty-Bitty Hatsand Itty-Bitty Toys.  We love all of these books, and we’ll have them for sale at 20% off.

If you’ve already made things from her books, please bring them to show us!

We hope to see you on Friday, June 17th!

The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
