Summer 2017 Classes & Events

April 20, 2017


In the next couple of days, we’ll be  delivering information to your email inbox about our new classes and events schedule. You may subscribe here to receive our email updates.

We’ve got more fun social events than ever scheduled for April through August, designer trunk shows, patio socials, and some of our most popular knitting and crochet classes. Plus we have a brand-new colour work sweater class in the works!

A peek at some upcoming events….

Coming up very quickly is the Woolith Fair Yarn Crawl from Friday, April 28 to Sunday, April 30. We’re delighted to be a crawl stop again, and we’ll be open regular hours for it on the Friday and Saturday, with special hours 11-3 on the Sunday of the event weekend.

Organized by the West Coast Knitters’ Guild, this three-day event is designed to get you out and about, visiting as many participating Local Yarn Stores and fibre-related businesses as possible. There’s special discounts and prizes to be won too! You may visit the official Woolith Fair website for more information and to download your yarn crawl passport, so that you may collect stamps from each fabulous place you visit along the way.


Local knitwear designer and accomplished photographer, Sylvia McFadden of Softsweater Knits, will be joining us for the day on Saturday, April 29. Sylvia is bringing along a collection of her designs to inspire you, including the beautiful shawls from her newest book A Stillness of Trees.

We’re looking forward to yet another fun-filled season at 88 Stitches!
