Icelandic Glitter Diva, Ragga brings a surprise for Steven and a bunch of great classes to Fiber Fest in April!

Hello fiber followers, Jeremy here!

We are all recovering from the amazing Shop Hop weekend at both stores. Thanks for your support of the local yarn shops and your generous donations to the local emergency foodshelves. When knitters unite, magic happens!

Jessie let me sleep in today and I didn't have to be at the shop until Noon, so I was surprised by lots of new samples when I got to work. Ragga (one of our featured Fiber Fest teachers) had dropped by the shop before my arrival. WOW WOW WOW! She brought her samples to show all of you prospective students what she will be teaching at the end of the month.

Check out this traditional Icelandic Lopapeysa modeled by one of our newest knitters.

This class is coming to the Yarn Garage on Thursday, April 26th from 11am - 3pm. You will work on your own "mini" version of this great project and learn lots of new techniques for your "toolbox".

Here is my favorite! You know how I love a cowl and this one is done in chunky Tunisian Crochet! 
These cute ladies from our afternoon Beginner Knitting class helped me with some modeling.

I am taking this class here at StevenBe! Join Ragga for Tunisian Crochet Reinvinted on Monday, April 30th from 11am - 3pm in Minneapolis.

And now for the biggest surprise of the day! Ragga brought Steven a custom Lopi Hoodie! This is definately a funky twist on Icelandic knitting, complete with skull motif and yes.... PINK SEQUINS! Steven looks smashing in his new sweater and will be modeling it tonight at the Minnesota Knitters' Guild meeting.

You too can begin to create a signature Lopi Hoodie. Register for Ragga's Little Lopi Hoodie class at StevenBe on Wednesday, April 25th! You will work on your own "mini" lopi hoodie and learn the ins and outs of steeking and more! Click HERE to get more info on the class and Register NOW for feature pricing!
