Mark Your Calendars
We are thrilled to be teaching our third year at Knit Fit right here in Seattle. We are teaching one new-to-Knit-Fit class and bringing back one of our most popular classes. Dates and class details in the post HERE.
Our Crochet-A-Long (CAL) officially ended a month ago but some folks are still working on finishing up their projects. There are some FAB project photos and a couple of variations on our pattern that we just love. Check out the discussion thread HERE to see all the pics and great questions.
Our own Ravelry Page
Shibaguyz Designz Fanz has some new faces and some new posts including interest in starting a CAL on our own page. Hhhmmmm… what project do YOU think we should work on? Weigh in HERE.
We posted our FOUR newest patterns last week in the Books and Patterns section of our online store HERE and now they have project pages on Ravelry. Check 'em out HERE and give 'em some love (that's the little heart icon that says "add to favorites"). Be sure to link the pattern page on Ravelry to your Shibaguyz Designz projects so we can see what y'all are stitching up and give you some heart icon love back!
Speaking of our online store…
We are always working on adding new patterns but did you know we also have a section where we sell our overstock of yarn? We've added some new yarn to that page HERE this week so go grab some before it's all gone! We've started cleaning out one of our storage closets so there should be some more listed soon. Stay tuned…
Y'all are probably familiar with our Sample Sale page HERE where we give you all the chance to own some of the samples we make for the magazines to photograph when they buy a pattern from us. But this week we added a whole new section for Bespoke Crochet & Knit Garments HERE. We have always had a FAB clientele for our custom handmade garments and now we are making them available for purchase online. Each one is made to order and we contact each person personally to confirm their information for sizing and fitting before we begin. Right now we have our top selling pieces listed for order and we expect to add a few more next week.
