Seminars, news, updates: KNITTING & EMBROIDERY BLOG
- Hello everyone, we have a busy week but wanted to take a moment to
send a note.
Our newest Pattern Book for knitters "YOUR MID-GAUGE FAVORITES" is now
DONE and ready for shipment. However, we will not be processing any
orders until after this weekend due to our Seminar activities. Carole
and Fred are headed off to Indiana to teach at Charlene Shafer's
SPRING FLING and Jason is off to Kansas City, Missouri where he is
demonstrating at the Mid America Knitting Extravaganza sponsored by
KnitCraft (the company that brings you Silver Reed machines, Millor
yarns, and DesignaKnit and Fittingly Sew software). This means that
our walk-in store in St. Cloud, Minnesota is open by appointment only
this week on Thurs/Fri/Sat.

Here is a hint for people to ponder: if static electricity is a
problem in your knitting or sewing room, is anyone familiar with the
"magic" cloth that Copier Service People use to wipe off copy
machines? When static is causing paper jams, I only need to touch the
cloth to the machine and it dissipates. Anyone know of a reason why we
can't keep some of this near our fiber arts equipment? I wouldn't know
where to purchase it, the Copier Service person was nice enough to
leave one here.
Keep knitting or sewing (or both) and we will be back in touch soon.
