There's a lot of good things happening at Shibaguyz Designz and we're looking for folks to partner with to build our community and share in the fun!
Attention bloggers, editors, podcasters, event promoters, fiber-related businesses, and anyone who might have a sky writing company! Okay… that last one might be a stretch… but, hey, you never know until you ask!
Shibaguyz Designz is looking for folks who like to talk about all things crochet and knit for some upcoming events and book tours. Whether you work in the virtual world of the internet (or the Matrix) or the physical world (preferably on this earthly dimension), we want to talk to you.
There's a LOT going on at Shibaguyz Designz and we are looking for good folks to partner up with for book tours, product reviews, events, promotions, and general FAB happenings. We love the community we have become a part of over the past five years and we can't think of better people to work with to get the word out.
If you have a fun blog, a podcast, own a yarn shop or promote an event, drop us a note via our Contact Us page and let us know who you are and what you do. If your community is a good fit with our community, we'll get back to you with more info and dates and such so we can start making plans!
Oh yeah… and there are a TON of opportunities for fun around National Crochet Month and National Craft Month coming up this spring. See… so much FAB happening!!
Have some ideas we haven't thought of before? We LOVE creative thinkers! Don't be shy about creative ideas for promotions and events.
So… wanna come along for the fun? We'd love to have you with us!

It's here! Well… it's almost here… but close enough to have a little pre-launch celebration for my NEW Craftsy Class: Introduction to Crochet Cables
So some of you probably had a little clue that we had a class in the works with the folks at Craftsy but now we can let the proverbial cat out of the bag. WOOHOO!!
As you can see, this class is a FAB fav topic of ours: Crochet Cables. We LOVE crochet cables and in this class I take you step-by-step through the process of how to make basic crossed stitches all the way through those glorious sweeping, turning, dramatic cables we all love. Along the way, I share all of my tips and tricks to make crochet cables fun and easy!
The exciting part is I teach you all of this using a FAB project! You get to apply what you are learning right away without wondering how you are going to use these stitches in real life.
Oh yeah… if you've been around here very much, you've probably noticed one of the small photos is of our WILDLY popular Woven Cables crochet pattern stitch. Yes, there's even a segment of this class where we walk you through the Woven Cables pattern stitch step-by-step!
We designed this class with so much FAB information… when you are finished, you'll be shocked by how nimble your crochet hook is around cables!
My class Introduction to Crochet Cables is coming out REALLY soon! WOOHOO!! To celebrate, the folks at Craftsy are letting us give away FREE access to my class to one of our fans. That's YOU!

Once again this year, Jason will be working his photography skillz at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. Last year, he went by himself while I stayed home and worked on a book deadline but NOT THIS YEAR! This year, we are heading to the opposite coast a few days early to conduct a day of workshops with the FAB folks at the New York City Crochet Guild.
We will be conducting two workshops on February 14th: The Joy of Ribbing & Crochet Cables: Put a little twist in your stitches!
At the time of this post, seat are almost sold out! So… if you are a member of the NYC Crochet Guild (or know someone in the guild) hurry and sign up today!

Class Details and Registration Information for Shibaguyz Designz Classes at Knit Fit 2014
NOTE: This post was updated on October 22, 2014 to reflect the new date for the Motif Madness class. All information in this post is correct as of October 22, 2014. - S&J
It's that time again… Back to School! Okay… not exactly THAT kind of school but it is time to head back into the classroom and build those stitching skills!
As a designer, I spend most of my time in the studio, sketching, writing, and… well… doing designy things (yes… I made up another word…). When Jason isn't in his studio, he is always running off to shoot photos of some event or someone marking a momentous occasion with a photo session.
As teachers, we get to interact with crocheters and knitters who look to us to help them build their skills. Whether they are hobby stitchers or looking to become designers, it is always a thrill for us to take a classroom full of students on a journey during a class session.
Fortunately, we have the opportunity to teach at some great events and Knit Fit right here in Seattle is one of our favorites. This year we are honored to be teaching for the third year at Knit Fit and we have two FAB classes to share with y'all.
This year, we are proud to be offering a student favorite: Fashion, Fit, Form, & Function; as well as a new-to-Knit-Fit class: Motif Madness. Here is a little about each class and the links to register.
Registration is open NOW and classrooms do fill up from time to time so be sure to get your registration in early to reserve your space. You can register for our classes by clicking on the photos above and then clicking on the "REGISTER NOW" link. Or, go to http://knitfit.info and register from there.
We do love teaching and we always have a lot of fun in class. We hope you can come be a part of the learning process with us!
See you at Knit Fit!
We hope you enjoy our articles and posts here on Shibaguyz Designz and hope you will share them with other stitchers. Take a minute to look around and check out our other posts as well as our patterns and books in our online shop. Here are a few suggestions for you we thought you might like.
