By the way, all magazines from 2014 and prior are also on sale at $2 each or 6 for $10. (Kindly remember: Sale yarns are not eligible for loyalty card credit.)
Coming Up in July
Knitter's Night Out at City Bakery!
Monday, July 13th, 7:00-8:30pm @ 3 West 18th St.
Special Guest: Michele Wang, Designer & Owner of Gauge + Tension
Please join us on Monday, July 13, as we welcome Michele Wang, owner of Gauge + Tension in Brooklyn (www.gaugeandtension.com). A long-time friend of Knitty City, Michele is a published designer, as well as a member of Brooklyn Tweed's design team. Don't miss the opportunity to meet her and share a great dinner at one of NYC's favorite eateries. Please feel free to bring any projects you'd like to share. Once again, we'll encourage you to “Strut Your Stuff," hosted by our colleague, Ubaldo. It's fun and, who knows? You may win a prize since all who participate get an extra raffle ticket! ...Or just come to meet other knitters and crocheters over an all-you-can-eat buffet at City Bakery in Chelsea.
MORE TO COME IN JULY
Our Free Knitting Lessons in Bryant Park continue, every Tuesday from 1:30-3PM. We are knitting "Found, But Not Lost" scarves, which will be donated at the end of the summer season. As usual, needles and yarn will be provided and returned at the end of every lesson. Even if you are an experienced knitter, we welcome you to join us. It's great fun, and you may be inspired to share your knowledge with someone new to the satisfying world of knitting -- and Knitty City.
Join Us for a Little Needle Felting
Artist Leslie Simon will be demonstrating needle felting on Friday, July 10 from 1 to 6 pm. Stop by and see how much fun you can have with this simple technique.
