In 2014 some of our best-loved classes return. We have lots of beginner-friendly knitting and sewing classes, as well as some new, more advanced offerings of sweater knit-alongs and challenging quilt blocks. Also back on the schedule are classes with nationally known instructors that sold out last time they were offered – Architecture and Landscape Quilts, Natural Spirit Doll, and Nuno Felting, to name a few. We have great, affordable classes for appropriate for kids and adults. Check out our calendar and review class descriptions to discover more about the exciting things you can learn to sew, quilt, knit, crochet, felt, dye – the list goes on!
Silk Road Textiles is open “late” every Thursday night. Our resident experts are in the house from 6-8PM. Bring an idea – bring a project – bring a question – bring yourself! One knitter said, ” It was so nice to sit, chat and knit. Very relaxing. I may have to come in every week!” – Please do, all hand-stitchers are welcome.
If you are interested in teaching a class or showing your art, please contact us today! We are putting together a gallery of talented and experienced artists, teachers, and enthusiasts to join us in sharing the joy of textile arts.
Coming in April, we will be hosting the Rowan Mystery Afghan KAL. Taking place over ten weeks, this knitalong will feature a new, exclusive design by Martin Storey, resulting in a snuggly, washable afghan! Purchasing the yarn for this project is your ticket to the class, so stop in soon to see the brand new superwash wool, available in a wide variety of appealing colors.
We are happy to introduce a great opportunity to stretch your creativity, try something new, and experiment with fabulous fabrics. Beginning in 2013, each month participating customers will receive a collection of 6 pieces of fabric and a spool of matching Presencia thread. Each pack will have its own theme sure to inspire you. This program makes a terrific gift for the fiber enthusiast! Enroll at any time. Learn more here.
It’s time to start thinking about the Spring Fling Art Show. A Saturday in May (date still TBD) will find the back parking lot full of local artists selling their goods and demonstrating their skills. If you think you might be interested in participating as a vendor, ask us for more details. If you like the kinds of gifts we carry in the store, you’ll be sure to want to stop by and shop!
Join Silk Road Textiles for our monthly Sip & Stitch! A great time to hang out with other folks who stitch in any number of ways. Bring your favorite beverage and any type of stitchery project you’d like to work on. Inspire others and be inspired in a friendly environment.

Participants who want to continue the camaraderie after the store closes can meet at Marty’s Hops and Vines, located next to Silk Road Textiles. Each Tuesday is Ladies’ Night at Marty’s.
