We Heart Urchins

Check out our new window designed by Jenni and featuring the work of the fabulous Calley Dodero!

Calley has created a flock of urchins and hearts for us.

What's that?  You'd like to make your own?  Well, do I have some good news for you!

Calley is teaching a class on her Urchin Pillow at the end of February.  Many people have commented on the poufs at the shop, and quite a few seem to recall seeing them in design magazines.  Calley says she has yet to be featured in any magazines, but maybe this exposure will change that!
If you are a non-crocheter, we have a Learn to Crochet Workshop with Ann on Monday, February 6 to get you started.  Ann will teach you all of the basics you need for Calley's class on February 20th and 27th.

Calley's class will focus on the big Urchin Pillow, crocheted with Cascade Lana Grande, but I'm guessing the little urchins are closely related.  She'll be able to give you the run down in class.  At this point, the pattern is only available to the students in the class, but it's possible that she will release it for purchase at a later date.  I'll keep you posted.

We do have the pattern for her sweet little Bullion Hearts at the shop right now.  Also worked up in Cascade Lana Grande, they are soft, cute, and fast.  We have the pattern for these at the shop and nice range of Valentine's Day Colors of Lana Grande.

If you are a knitter ready to branch out, let Ann and Calley gently lead you into the wild world of crochet.  If you already know what you're doing, come create something fabulous.  Stop on by or give us a call at the shop to sign up, 503.288.4568.  See you soon!
