weaving workshop may 10 & 17


Learn to weave from artist, Joslyn Winkler!



Spend an afternoon at our shop playing with yarns in various colors and textures, and get instruction as you create your own personalized woven wall hanging!



Beginner Weaving Workshop!

Sunday, May 10th (Mothers Day!) from 12-3 pm




Sunday, May 17th from 12-3 pm




Use your artistry and our yarns to make a unique wall hanging.  No experience necessary.

If you want to bring yarns of your own, feel free.  But we’ll have plenty here.

In the Workshop we’ll help you get your project started.  And you’ll leave with your own laser cut loom and enough weaving skills to keep creating.



We’ll have refreshments, including treats from Lovely Bake Shop.



$100 Registration Fee Includes:

weaving lesson

printed weaving guide

custom designed loom and tool set (which you’ll keep)

yarn selection for your project

dowel rod to complete your wall hanging



You’ll love learning from Joslyn, Chicago artist and art teacher!


Please join us for this fun afternoon of conversation, creativity and weaving!

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.

Contact us to learn more.
