The Tree Lighting will be at 6:30pm. Listen to Local Schools Perform! Join the Community Caroling! Say "Hi" to Santa!

The shop will be open until 8:00pm and we will have hot cider and snacks to keep you warm and put you in the holiday spirit!

The showroom, workshop and gallery has most recently been redesigned to make room for the addition of Beadz, a full service bead shop. Be sure to come by sometime soon to meet Beadz owner, Jan Sweitzer and her friendly staff members, Donna and Kelly. Beadz carries an extensive selection of beads and equipment.

Jan has beads suitable for stringing on yarn to make garments look elegant, whimsical or fun as well as a large array of beads for jewelry making. She will offer classes and workshops, too.

Social Knitting

Join us every Wednesday evening 5:30-7:30pm, and Sunday 2:00-4:00pm for social knitting, crochet & handcrafting.

Come relax, enjoy a cup of tea & the camaraderie of fellow fiber enthusiasts!
