The spirit of Christmas was in the shop last week as we celebrated the holiday early! We had our last social of the season with a yankee yarn swap and easy conversation. I’m always reminded at how kind crafters are and how we are interesting gentle souls. It was wonderful for me to take a break with you and sit and crochet and just be. Sometimes the holidays can be so busy that we forget to breathe.
Friday we hosted Mr & Mrs Claus for Christmas in the Village. Over 200 families came to the store to find Skippy and Kara our elves in the great elf scavenger hunt. We set up our classes table with a huge wooden train set that the children could play with and everyone left with a candy cane treat!! This was such a wonderful event to thank the community for their support of Scituate. Make sure you come next year!!
The Beginners Knitters are wrapping up their classes before the break! They’ve made wonderful scarves and hats. Michelle Kendell and Lisa Howell have done an outstanding job and all of the students had so much fun. Some have moved on to advanced beginners and some have decided to repeat the beginners class with new projects. So proud of all our new friends!!
We has our first felting class with Michelle Levesque of Sugarbeet Accessories. The ladies had a fabulous time making their own snowman ornament and learning the techniques of needle felting. We have another scheduled for Sunday, January 13th. Sign ups are on the website! We are also happy to welcome Cheryl To the Staci’s Stitches teaching team! Cheryl will be teaching Intro to Mittens and Color work lined mittens in a two part class so that intermediates or Advanced Beginners can jump into one or both. She will also be teaching a 4 week sock class which will be perfect to work on this chilly winter! Look for her classes later today and tomorrow!
This Holiday week we will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the Day after Christmas (24, 25, 26) so I can have some much needed quiet time with my family! I will be back in store Friday / Saturday while Kathy will be in the shop Thursday and Sunday. So our last open day this week will be Sunday December 23rd! We hope everyone has a wonderful week filled with laugh, love and the very best tidings.
