new mom knitting group!


Hello moms!  You’re invited to a midweek KNITCATION!

1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 11:30am -1:00pm

starting October 21, 2015!



Looking for a new hobby, new friends, or just some “me” time?

Knitcation is an informal knitting group at Nina for moms.  Of course, knitting nannies, dads and grandmas are included too.

Come for a little zen and grown-up conversation.  Feel free to bring infants in strollers and a cup of coffee!

Participation is free when knitting with yarn purchased at Nina.

Never knit before?  That’s perfectly okay!  We’ll help you get started on one of these great first projects.



We look forward to seeing you!

i love yarn day & book signing saturday, oct 17th


I Love Yarn Da is Saturday, October 17th

We’ll be celebrating at the shop all day with a book signing, a special sale, sweet treats, and a raffle!


Stitch It Forward… teach a friend to knit, crochet, or weave.

Bring a newbie to our shop on I Love Yarn Day and you’ll both get a free gift with purchase!



We’re excited to host a Book Signing and Trunk Show with author and knitter, Jen Geigley (designer of the immensely popular Gap-tastic Cowl).

She’ll be at our shop on Saturday, October 17th from 1-4 pm.

Come knit and chat with Jen, try on one of her designs, and pick up a copy of her new book, WEEKEND: Simple, Modern Knits.


hat knitalong (KAL) starts today, oct 3

It’s almost hat wearing weather!

Join us every Saturday in October from 3-5 pm for a Hat Knitalong!

No fee and no need to register.  Come to one or come to all!

KAL’s are a great way to learn new skills and make new friends.

Get guidance on your first hat – or if you’ve made one before, now’s your chance to incorporate a new technique (cables, stripes, pom poms, etc).

Please join us!

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.
