Upcoming December Events at KnitWit


January 2016 update! Visit the upcoming class schedule for Winter of 2016 here.

We are so excited to have designer and author Carrie Bostick Hoge at KnitWit for a booksigning event for her latest collection, Swoon Maine, along with her guest designers Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Mary Jane Mucklestone! Join us on Saturday, December 12th between 1:00-3:00pm for a Swoon Maine event. Meet Carrie, Cecily and Mary Jane, see the lovely book in person and have your copy signed by the designers! Mark your calendars and join us for this exciting event!



Help Us Feed the Hungry

Also on Saturday, December 12th, we’ll be collecting non-perishable food donations for the Preble Street Resource Center. Green Clean Maine, the local company that helps keep our shop squeaky clean, is asking businesses to help them collect food this holiday season that they will deliver to Preble Street Resource Center. We’ll have a donation box all set up on Saturday, December 12th, so simply stop by the shop on that day with some non-perishable food items and then Green Clean Maine will deliver the box to Preble Street!

!!! Holiday Knitting Ideas !!!

All month we’ll be posting gift-making inspiration on Facebook and Instagram. Make sure to follow us to stay in-the-loop on all the great ideas (for the people on your knitting list this holiday or maybe something special to knit for yourself during the season!) We’ll also have lots of great samples at the shop to see in person and new yarn arrivals to inspire you.
