Sunday 1-4, Monday closed, Tuesday 12-7, Wednesday, Thursday 11-8, Friday 11-6, Saturday 11-4 NOTE NEW THURSDAY NIGHT HOURS

How about a warm fuzzy in February? (we need it in Cleveland). We invite you to stop by and grab yourself a free cup of tea. During your visit, take in the colors, feel the yarns and enjoy the company.
We are adding kits to the shopping cart and will have them available in the store as well. The kits will be available in Erika's Handcrafted Gallery This coloful, soft cotton baby(and adult if you want one!) hat is available now. Click here to see the colors available.

If you are a sock lover, enjoy browsing Favorite Socks, 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave Press or The Ultimate Sock Book by Vogue Knitting. We currently are the exclusive retailer of KnitBrit Sock patterns.

The One Skein Wonders and 101 Designer One Skein Wonders books have great projects for everyone. The class offerings are fun, varied, and appealing to all levels. If you want to develop your skills or just enjoy the classroom take a look at our great classes.
We do offer private lessons (please call the store at 216 228-9276) if your schedule prevents you from joining our group classes. If you would like to register for any of the classes, you may register online, by telephone, by mail or in person. By popular demand, Shannon Okey will do a fit/design workshop for us just prior to her teaching cruise with Debbie Stoller of Stitch & Bitch fame! We have some new teachers (and of course our old ones as well).

We continue to add yarns, patterns and fun stuff like accessories. Did you know we carry the Amy Butler Sweet Life Knitting Bags and the Go Knit Pouches which people love? The Stitch Cleveland gals have been helping our customers out by finishing garments, lining bags and giving helpful suggestions to improve projects. We are happy to say that the 1387 Sloane Ave. location has become a full service stitching studio.

We carry Louet yarns in the store and am currently adding them to the website. We want to share this skirt pattern with you. Gillian (the skirt pattern) is time dated so make sure you print your copy right away.
Using this pattern we think the Louet Gems or the Claudia Handpainted yarns would make a stunning skirt for the spring!

In the store we are knitting the Modern Quilt Wrap as a THURSDAY NIGHT KNIT ALONG-6-8. If you can not make it to the store you can join the online knit along. Interweave Press has declared the Modern Quilt Wrap their most popular knit along so far. If you buy the yarn to make it here, we invite you to our knit along plus you will receive a 10% discount on the yarn. The pattern is free online at Knitting Daily or available in the book Folk Style. Rowan
Kidsilk Haze
is the recommended yarn. Because of all the colors used in this wrap, there is enough for two shawls so grab a partner and share the yarn.
