    It's been six long years since Arne & Carlos visited The Sow's Ear and we're excited to have them return. You've seen their books, now meet them in person.  They'll be discussing "The World of ARNE & CARLOS" followed by a book signing. During the lecture they talk about their work and life to get you inspired! Cost is $40 per person if purchased by September 15th, or $50 per person starting September 16th. You may register online or by calling or stopping by the store. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.

    Join skacel on November 10, 2018, as they challenge the knitting community to create 10,000 New Knitters in one day! skacel will be providing FREE kits to new knitters to make a pair of fingerless mitts in partnership with established knitters and the Local Yarn Shop (we have several in the area participating). Each store may run this event slightly differently, for example DMarie Knit and Fiber is hosting an event at the Sauk Prairie Middle School. 

    Here’s how it works:

    As a new or established knitter, you can pick up a free NEW KNIT KIT from a participating LYS.

    Established knitters can use this kit to teach someone how to knit on November 10th! By pairing a new knitter with a source of help, they will be more likely to finish the project and develop their skills further.  

    Be sure to share your experience via social media by tagging @10000NewKnitters and using #10000NewKnitters in your posts!

    Future knitters (newbies) can visit a participating LYS to pick up their free kit on November 10th and receive help from the staff, or members of the knitting community.

    Each kit comes with a ball of Special Edition Sueño Worsted in Natural, a pair of US8 (5mm) addi Linos straight needles and a pattern to create beginner-friendly fingerless mitts.
