Welcome to the Blog!
Brigitte's daughter Sam and her new husband
Welcome to Klose Knit's new blog! We'll be using this space to let you know about upcoming events, classes, and special sales. Check in here to find out about our new yarns and samples and just generally keep in touch. We'd also like to use this space to show off some of our customers' projects so if you have photos or links to projects you've made with our yarn or learned to do in one of our classes, please let us know!
We've had a busy--and romantic!--summer here. Brigitte's daughter got married in August in Michigan and Ann got married on Labour Day weekend in Indiana. Now we're gearing ourselves up for a busy and exciting fall at the store. Here are a few upcoming events you might like to know about:
BAG CONTEST Submit any knit or crocheted bag. You can felt it (or not) and embellish it any way you want. It can be any size and serve any purpose. Bags will be judged by Klose Knit staff and prizes will be given to our favorite three. Plan on having your entry in the week after Labor Day!
ANNIVERSARY PARTY The time is flying! Coming up is Klose Knit's third anniversary. We're hosting an anniversary party and SALE on September 11 to celebrate the happy occasion. We will have free workshops, refreshments, and announce the winners of the bag contest!
Sarah is organizing our classes for the fall and has put together a schedule here. We're still adding classes so check back in and let us know if you're interested in a specific subject--we'll do our best to add it to the schedule.
