World Wide Knit In Public Day + Summer Knit Along

World Wide Knit In Public Day is a great opportunity to come out and knit in community with your neighbors and friends. Come join us at the Gazebo at the corner of Park Row and Main Street, Chatham, NY from 2-5 pm as we take part in this worldwide event celebrating knitting and crochet. Bring your project and a lawn chair. Refreshments will be served!

This is also the kickoff for our first knitalong of the summer. We'll be knitting the A Maze 'n' Miters sweater from Knitter's magazine. This fun project boasts several different techniques, including miters and stripes, and an unusual construction to keep you interested throughout. We'll be ordering copies of the magazine for anyone interested. You can also order your own copy from knittinguniverse.com in either print or digital format. Stop by the shop to let us know you're interested and to check out yarn choices.

Tell all your friends...maybe even bring someone you know that would like to learn to knit! We hope to see you there!

Stitched by Jessalu Pop-Up Shop

Join us on Saturday, July 23rd and Sunday July 24th as The Warm Ewe hosts a pop-up shop from Stitched by Jessalu.  Anne and Tempe first saw these wonderful project totes and notion bags at the MA Sheep and Wool Show in Cummington, MA and are happy to provide a testimonial.    

These bags are beautifully sewn by Jessica at home in nearby Egremont, MA, in interesting and fun fabrics - classic, funky, geometric, floral, geeky or literary (Dr. Who or Jane Austen anyone?).  Each bag has a different print lining the inside and is elegantly finished with a zipper and a zipper pull made of Swarovski crystals and a silver bee. 

Interested in learning more about Stitched by Jessalu? You can check out her website atstitchedbyjessalu.com. See you this weekend!
