Wednesdays at Wynona’s

The first Wednesdays at Wynona’s was a big success and we learned a lot, had some fun, drank a little wine and nibbled on some goodies. Anne did an amazing job to covering a huge topic in an orderly and thorough way. We learned about washing and blocking, including care instructions in your handknit gifts, and storing your items for the summer.

 

This week we are getting ready for our second one…this time it is Fun Knitting Facts/History-Trivia Night! Anne will tell us about all kinds of cool knitting facts, educate us a little on the history of hand knitting, and ask some questions to see if we know the answers! Even if you are not a knitter, but love history and trivia, this is a great one to come to. Anne has written articles on the history of knitting for Piecework magazine and knows what she is talking about, but is also a very entertaining speaker.

 

Please remember to RSVP, either by clicking on the classes tab above and registering for the class, giving us a call at 503-974-9193 (you can even leave a message after hours on the machine), sending an email, or stopping by. It is so helpful if we know how many chairs to set up and make sure we have enough wine and snacks for everyone. The cost is $12/per person and the evening starts at 6:30pm and ends around 8:30pm.

We hope to see you there!

Earth Day Celebration at Wynona Studios!

As you might have guessed from our total emphasis on local and recycled yarn and fiber, one of our favorite holidays is Earth Day, Sunday April 22nd!

This year to celebrate we have three classes (all with spots still available in them!). First there is Deconstructing a Sweater with me (JJ Foster), where you will learn to take an unloved sweater from your closet or the thrift store and turn it back into yarn to use for a new project. This class starts at 10:00am, is $35 and includes the sweater to take apart. Second there is Felted Dryer balls with Ruth Beck where you will learn to turn raw fiber (from her family’s sheep farm here in Oregon City) into a ball you can throw into the dryer to help get your clothes dry faster, so you can use less energy. This class starts at 10:30am, is $35 and also includes all supplies. And last but not least we have Mason Jar Cozies with the always entertaining Arminda Barnes, where you will learn to take recycled yarn and turn it into a cozy for a mason jar that will allow you to use it to transport hot beverages or simply to decorate those jars of homemade jam you give for the holidays. Arminda will show you how to use the magic loop technique to work in the round and when you are done with your cozy you will be able to dye it with Kool Aid to make it totally unique. This class starts at 1pm and is $35 with all supplies excpet the knitting needles included.

Additionally, we will have our recycled yarn on sale for 25% off! If you have not had a chance to try recycled yarn yet, this is a great chance to give it a whirl!
