Saturdays Mad-Hatters group  Noon - 3 pm 
 (Call the shop or look for schedule on!)
(PS- Shirt pictured not affiliated with the group, but why not check out something fun?!)

Knitting newborn hats for Mercy Medical Center's nursery. Simple, easy baby hats work up fast. Mandi will even teach you how to knit them if you promise to donate a hat! Pattern booklet availiable, also if you would be so kind as to donate a hat - or as many as you can knit up! Crochet hats also accepted, but no pattern available YET! Nice and easy-going group, friendly and always helping one another, we have a good relaxing knit-time while we whip up our lovely little hats!
If you are not able to make it to a group session, you can bring your finished baby hats to the shop. PLEASE make sure your hats are machine washable, and measure 6 inches wide and 5 inches tall when laid flat! Otherwise, hats that are not the correct size, the hospital will not accept.  (Whenever hats are either too small or too large, Mandi has to take them out and re-knit them - So sizing them properly makes a huge difference for her as well. She puts so much work into organizing everything for this cause, and delivers every hat by hand, so lets make her work a little easier!)

UFO Saturdays   2nd and Last saturday of every month  Noon-4pm

A day of finishing up Un-Finished-Objects  (look for schedule on!)

           Anyone is welcome to come and work on a project that needs finishing (or starting!). Also, if you are in need of assistance or guidance for your project, please call before coming in, and we will have someone available to help you get moving again. There is no charge for help, but if we are really busy in the shop there could be a delay, so we like to have an extra hand and individualized attention for those who need help! Feel free to make every saturday your day for finishing up your knitting, even on unspecified days, you are always welcome to sit and knit!

Didn't find a group that suits you?! How about coming by and finding a day that your own group of friends can gather at the shop to knit?! We love having groups come and work at the shop, and all are welcome at anytime. Also, now that our beautiful Durango weather is warming up, we can use the courtyard in front of the shop as well! So please, join us in one of our groups or start your own!
