Open Craft Night
Make time for your favorite pastime! Bring your current project, snacks and friends for a night of casual crafting and catch-up. Chances are you’ll leave having learned a new trick or gained inspiration for your next project! Remember, parking is free after 5.
Thurs., March 20 | 6–9 p.m.
Rebecca Danger’s adorable plush critters (like Iris the Gourmet Monster, shown here) are simple, clever, and cuddly! But they’re also a great excuse to use up odds and ends of yarn to create baby gifts or fun household decorations. We’ll start with Bunny Nuggets and work from there. Since this KAL is after-hours, please call the shop at 563-587-8044 to sign up!
Tues., March 11, 18 and 25 | 5:30–7:30 p.m.

One of the most popular shawl designs on Ravelry.com, Color Affection, by Veera Välimäki, is a simple garter stitch shawl that employs increases and color changes to create a lightweight, elegant, flowing wrap you can wear throughout the year. Doable for the advanced beginner and beyond!
