The Cottage Shoppe's Fall Gathering Craft Show

The Cottage Shoppe's Fall Gathering Craft Show will be held October 29th and 30th. If you have any items to be included in our Yarn Nook booth, please bring them to the shop by noon on Friday, October 28th. We will provide tags for your items the week prior to the craft fair (you decide on the price), and you will receive all money for the sale of your items. You are also invited to come out for a Knit in Public event at our booth, so mark your calendars! Don't forget your lawn chairs and your knitting, crochet, or spinning projects!

October Knit-a-longs

In October we are celebrating the arrival of Fall with two knit-a-longs!

We will be knitting the terrific Thorpe hat on Wednesdays October 5, 12, 19 and 26, 1pm - 3pm. Please stop by the shop to see our solid color and fair isle shop samples of this fun ear-flap hat!

We will work on the beautiful Kate Middleton Shawl on Fridays October 7, 14, 21 and 28, 1pm - 3pm. In May, The Duchess of Cambridge was photographed wearing this amazing shawl ~ you too can sport your own hand-knit version this fall!

The knit-a-long fee is $20 plus the cost of your supplies and includes all the help you need to complete your hat or shawl. You many attend as many or as few of the gatherings as you would like. If you are unable to attend the scheduled knit-a-long dates, we invite you to create your own project class ~ for a fee of $20 you will receive all the help you need to complete your project at your own pace! Come by soon to sign-up and to choose your yarn!
