We're Going To Camp Again! This Time In Our Neck Of The Woods
The reviews and comments keep coming in... our Design It class at Camp STITCHES is a big hit!
We keep hearing from students from all over the globe about the new skills they took away from Camp STITCHES and how much they loved learning about crochet and knit garment design in such an immersive setting.
Class was awesome! I attended to get some pointers on fit and designing garments for myself and left with dreams of "designer" in my head!
Click on the link below to get full details on our class, the venue, and cost (tip: book early and take advantage of Early Bird pricing and their great payment plan). Bring your significant other for a weekend getaway you both can share. They can enjoy amenities like the spa or world class golf course while you are in class with us during the day; you can explore and shop downtown Coeur d'Alene together during the evenings and the free afternoon on Saturday! (Just a thought).
We're looking forward to seeing you in Idaho this October. It's going to be EPIC!

National Craft Month Week 4 Giveaway Package Featuring: ZOOM LOOM! Weaving Done The Easy Way.
The Shibaguyz love to try new things... from sewing to cooking to biking and hiking, we are always excited to pick up some new technique to add to our repertoire. That being said, we don't spend a lot of time looking for the hard way to do something. We are firm believers in giving yourself an easy victory then moving on to the next step. So when the FAB folks at Schacht Spindle Company reached out to us to try their Zoom Loom we, of course, said "Sure, we'd love to give it a shot".
Shortly after our Zoom Loom arrived Jason picked it up and started playing with it. Even through he'd never used a pin loom before, within 30 minutes was making perfect squares for sewing/weaving together into larger pieces... Like we said, give yourself an easy victory, and this was easy.
Now he's now totally addicted! In just one evening of sitting in front of the television he can pop out 10-12 squares. He's already got a pile ready to piece together for a sampler afghan... all made of short scraps of yarn from left over projects that were just sitting in boxes waiting to be used. Jason says "It's like a quilter taking large pieces of fabric, cutting into small pieces to sew back together... only you get to create the pieces you want in whatever colors you like".
This is SO easy and SO much fun we asked the Schacht Spindle Company if they would be willing to give away a Zoom Loom for National Craft Month 2016. They said YES! WOOHOO! So our week 4 giveaway package for National Craft Month 2016 features the Zoom Loom.
Here is what Schacht has to say about their Zoom Loom:
We’ve taken a simple design and transformed it into an efficient and comfortable little loom. If you’ve ever woven on a pin loom, you’ll love our new and improved model. Small and compact, the Zoom Loom is easy to take with you. Weave anywhere, any time.
Now is your chance for some instant gratification of your own. You can enter to win our National Crafty Month prize package including your very own Zoom Loom, provided by the Schacht Spindle Company. Along with the Zoom Loom, this week's winner will also receive a signed copy of Shannon's new book, Crochet Geometry, (woohoo!) and an assortment of our favorite products from Eucalan Gentle Wash.
