Guess Who's Coming to Close Knit

So, Debbie Bliss is coming.  To our shop.  To chat with you about her fall pattern books, new yarn, and her design process.
Debbie is throwing out the opening pitch at the Stitch n' Pitch in Seattle on July 24, and she is making the rounds of the Pacific Northwest while she is in the neighborhood.  She has not been to the area in four years, and we are the only Portland shop that will be hosting a night with this iconic knitwear guru.
On July 21 from 6-8, we will have a chance to see her newest (not yet published) designs and try on samples from the fall books. There will be a book signing and a chance to pre-order all kinds of good stuff from her line.  Since we have such a cozy shop, the seating is limited.  We are asking that you pay a $5 class fee and sign up ahead of time by calling the shop or stopping by.
Sally is offering a 15% discount on all Debbie Bliss yarns and pattern books to all who attend the class.  Just keep your receipt from the class fee, and you can use that discount until August 21 on all Debbie Bliss goodies.  We will have a nice plump stock of our DB favorites like Baby Cashmerino, Paloma, and Cashmerino Aran.  Debbie will be bringing some of the new fall yarns with her, too.  We won't be seeing these in the shop until September or so, but we are really looking forward to checking them out in person.  Sally is particularly excited about the Fine Donegal, a tweedy sport weight with a touch of cashmere.
Debbie Bliss was instrumental in bringing knitting back, and her books, magazines, and yarns have impacted the wide world of fiber arts in countless ways.  Don't miss your chance to meet her!
