Post Card Party Mail Call

??????????????????????

On Sunday 8 March 2015 from 4-5pm we will be having our Postcard Part Mail Call party!  Stop in the store to see the cards we received hanging up on the wall.  At the party we’ll admire all the postcards, then pull names and numbers to determine which one goes home with whom.  If you made a postcard and can’t make it to the mail call party, don’t worry!  We’ll just set your postcard aside for you to pick up at your convenience.


Winter Classes Have Arrived!

marbling actionDid you make a resolution to expand your creative horizons this year?  We have plenty of classes to teach you something new or help you grow your current skill set.  Adults and kids will find an abundance of opportunities to create with fabric, yarn, fiber, and more.  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!

Of particular interest this season are our returning favorite classes.  We have more rigid heddle weaving, including a brand-new class, “Weave a V”.  Seasoned and aspiring doll-makers will have the opportunity to create under Carole Gary Staples’ guidance, making either a mask or a natural spirit doll.  Finally, Technique Tuesdays are back, and the topics are no longer a surprise!  Find more information either in the class descriptions or on the dedicated Technique Tuesday page.


Women’s Day Magazine Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge

Chemo caps 1We were absolutely blown away by the response to the chemo cap drive!  40 hats were dropped off to Silk Road Textiles made by a multitude of generous knitters and crocheters.  Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent with cancer patients.  We are sure each hat will be cherished.  This was such a great success and we received so much positive feedback that we have decided to continue to accept hat donations independently of the Women’s Day TNNA challenge.  Guidelines are simply to use soft fibers that will be kind to sensitive heads, and to label your hats with fiber content so people with allergies can be safe.  Hats of all colors and sizes are welcome.


Event: Thursday Night Open Stitching!

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.
