Crafting for Charity Night!

Cat-Toy Workshop to benefit Colony Cats
Sunday November 2nd

Please join us for the first in a series of workshops designed to help local charities through crafting! November’s workshop will focus on making catnip-filled cat toys that will be sold by Colony Cats volunteers to raise money for their great organization. Colony Cats is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides community assistance with spay/neuter and rescue/adoption, as well as specialized help for feral cats. This workshop is free and all materials are provided. No experience necessary! Come out to learn a new skill, work on a fun project, and help kitty cats!
P.S. Please note the kitty in the photo is in need of no help. He subsists quite nicely on a diet of cat food, kitty treats, and my socks. He also enjoys long walks through the living room and vigorous rubbing.

October Classes at Wholly Craft!

Beginning Knitting
Sundays, October 12 & 19, 5:30-7pm
Class Fee: $25 Materials Fee: $2

Just in time for cooler weather! It’s the perfect time of year to pick up knitting needles and learn a new skill. By the time the holidays roll around, you’ll have a stack of handmade gifts! This class is for absolute beginners---we’ll start with the basics and move on up to some serious scarf making. Seasoned knitter Adrienne of the Crafty Beavers will teach us casting-on, basic knit and purl stitches, changing colors, and casting-off. In this class we’ll make an ipod/cell phone cozie and a scarf. All materials for the cozie will be provided and the materials list for the scarf will be discussed on the first night.

Sewing Lab
Sunday October 27th, 1-2:30pm
Class Fee: $12

Spend more time staring at your sewing machine that sewing with it? Do you need a little help figuring out all the working parts or are you just stuck on a particular project? Emily of Umbrella Girl Productions has been sewing for over a decade and can certainly help you win the battle between human and machine. She specializes in older models but can also work a basic modern model (no computerized stuff, please). In order to ensure personalized instruction, the lab is limited to 3 people, so reserve your spot quickly!

Sew Basic
Sunday, October 27th, 3-5pm
Class Fee: $15 (or take both Sewing Lab and Sew Basic for only $22!)

Whether you’re looking to create a fashion vision or just fix up a piece that no longer fits, this is the class for you! Emily will be back to teach some basic hand sewing skills and demonstrate several sewing techniques to make and alter simple garments. Additionally we will talk about patterns, selecting fabrics, and sewing notions. Please bring a shirt or skirt you’d like to discuss altering.

**Space is very limited and Advance Registration is required for all classes. To register, please email, call 447-3445, or stop by the shop during business hours and make arrangements for pre-payment of class fees.

The W.C. gets political!
