10,000 New Knitters Event

10,000 New Knitters Event

Saturday, November 10
11:00 am – 2:00 pm

At Northwest Wools, we’re passionate about all fiber arts — knitting, crocheting, weaving, felting, spinning – basically, anything involving yarn or fiber in any way. And we’re always looking for ways to share our passion with the world. That’s why, when we heard about 10,000 New Knitters Day, we knew we just had to be involved!

10,000 New Knitters Day is an event sponsored by Skacel Collection, the American distributor of Addi Needles. Skacel is providing yarn stores all over the United States with free kits for beginning knitters, in the hopes of teaching 10,000 people to knit. Kits include a set of knitting needles, a ball of Sueño Worsted yarn by HiKoo, and a simple pattern for a pair of fingerless mitts.

New knitters who come to our 10,000 New Knitters event will receive a free New Knitter’s Kit (while supplies last), plus a free knitting lesson from one of our experienced teachers. We’ll have plenty of staff on hand to share our knowledge and love of knitting.

To add to the fun, we’ll be raffling off five Maker’s Keeps courtesy of Coco Knits. These silicone slap bracelets have a magnetic metal plate on top. They’ll keep stitch markers, cable needles, pins or any other steel accessory handy while you’re busy “making”.

If your free lesson on November 10th gets you hooked and you’d like to learn more, you can sign up for one of our knitting classes. We offer classes Monday through Saturday, and we’re always happy to welcome new knitters to the fold! Plus, students at Northwest Wools receive 10 percent off items they purchase in the shop.

So spread the word! We’ll see you on November 10th with yarn and needles in hand!
