We want to see your projects and share them with our community so we can all inspire (enable) each other. You may email pictures of your completed project to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name of the pattern and the yarn used or bring your project to the shop and we will photograph it for you!
For the summer I am not scheduling beginner classes. I will put some more advanced or specialty classes on the schedule. Take advantage of them now, they won't be repeated.
Individual Lessons are available anytime we are open. Call for an appointment and come learn some things. If you have a group who wants a lesson, give us a call and we'll schedule it.
Beginning Embroidery, and with bling too! Saturday, May 14, 11-4. Learn basic hand embroidery stitches and incorporate beads and sequins too. You'll make a small embroidered piece of your own design that could be used as an insert in a quilted bag, or framed and put on the wall. Most materials provided, but you should bring any special beads or materials you want to use and your own needles - embroidery needles and beading needles..$70
The Knaughty Knitter was established a little over ten years ago. Our goal was not only to create a viable business for ourselves in our retirement years, but also and more importantly to form a vibrant fiber arts community in Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee. Our first location was in a little yellow house on North Walnut Street here in Murfreesboro. As the fiber community continued to grow and along with it the reputation of The Knaughty Knitter, it became a well known source for knitting, crochet, weaving and spinning supplies and equipment. At the same time the store became a center for groups, classes and workshops in the fiber arts. We are so grateful for our community of fiber people who have supported us over the years.
Out of this solid foundation came a desire to share this with the community. A new organization, Fiber in the Boro, was formed with the skilled organizational efforts of Meredith Kermicle, Jan Quarles, Darlene Dralus and Christina Consiglio. The first festival at the Lane Agricultural Center drew over 600 fans. Since then the attendance has steadily increased. It is again scheduled for another great yearly extravaganza.
Meanwhile, The Knaughty Knitter continued to grow and became too large for the little yellow house. We moved to a new location near Interstate 24 with more space and potential for growth. With now a billboard on the interstate and official State attraction signs, the store has become a great stopover for tourists.
Now, after over ten years in business, our personal health and stamina has diminished and we are looking for folks that would want to carry on the tradition of The Knaughty Knitter. We are offering the business for sale. Due to our financial position and our desire to maintain the integrity of the tradition in the community, we are willing to offer several different options to take over the business. Anyone who thinks they would be interested please contact us.
is Fractured Light. This is from Knitty, is free and also has mitts that go with it. I'd recommend a light color, but it seems folks have used everything - noro, hand dyed and solids. It takes sport weight yarn but some folks have gotten away with heavier fingering weight.
