In an effort to cater to as many of your busy schedules as we can, beginning in November, Anne will be hosting a Wednesday Evening Drop-In session from 6-9pm, every other week.

Tuesdays with Kaity 1-4pm

Wednesdays (Every Other Week) with Anne 6-9pm

Thursdays with Kaity 1-4pm

Fridays with Karin 10-1pm

Saturdays with Anne 12:30-3:30

Sundays with Karin 2-5pm

If you are ever unsure of when we are open for drop-in help, always check our Calendar on the home page of our website.

Come celebrate the arrival of our favorite season at our Harvest Party! From 2-5pm on Sunday, November 3rd (with an exclusive hour for members from 1-2pm) we will have an open house, with a potluck, free drop-in, and a chance to shop with some fun vendors. Look for more info coming in November, and save the date for November 3rd!

Strings & Things Studio Book Club

We here at the studio are avid readers, and thought we would share our love of reading with all of you! We are starting a Book Club, and the way it works will be that we choose a book, give you a period of time to read it, and Anne, Kaity, and Karin will discuss it in an upcoming special episode of our Podcast, Strings Unraveled.

For our first book, we chose "Hum If You Don't Know The Words" by Bianca Marais, recommended to us by one of our wonderful customers. If you want to join us, pick up a copy (also available as an Audiobook if you prefer to listen) and read it by November 18th, when the special episode of Strings Unraveled will be available to listen to where we discuss the novel.

Stitches SoCal Ride Share

Stitches SoCal was so fun last year, and we are looking forward to the event again this year! Stitches SoCal is November 14-17. We are arranging a Ride Sharing list, so if you are planning on driving and have extra room in your car, or if you are looking for a ride, add your name to the sign-up list in the studio (or shoot us an email and we'll add you to the list), and a week or so beforehand, we will send the names and emails of those interested in ridesharing to you if you signed up so you can arrange to share rides with each other.

Beginner Class Incentive Program

We love when we get to teach beginning knitting, crocheting, and sewing classes, because that means we are bringing more and more people into the crafts that we love. This class schedule, we have lots of Beginning Classes, and as an incentive for you to help us bring more into the fold, we have a new Beginner Class Incentive Program. When a new student registers for a beginning class and mentions your name as someone who recommended them to us, your name will be entered into a monthly prize drawing! At the end of the month, we'll pick a name, and one lucky person wins a prize. For October, the prize will be a handmade project bag, made by Kaity! Make sure to tell your friends, and make sure they mention your name!
