Community Stitches

Community Stitches
Riverside Yarns invites you to sit around the table and knit or crochet every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon from 1-3pm.  Please join us to chat, stitch, share stories, skills, and tips.  It’s free and it’s fun!



Joan's Knitting Clinic

Every Wednesday from 4-6pm, Joan Spence hosts a drop-in Knitting Clinic! Get specialized help with a project in a convenient and budget friendly way.  Here's how it works:
$15 + HST flat fee
Come whenever it works for you; No registration necessary
First come first serve; Stay for as long as you like (flat fee applies regardless)
Bring a coffee and a second project to work on while waiting your turn (if necessary)
Please call the store ahead of time just to be sure Joan isn't on holidays or away.



Our Make-Alongs (MAL)

Our April Make-Along was a big success. Our June MAL is already full but please call the store at 519-371-4311 if you would like to join the one after that.  There is no charge.  We just ask that you purchase new yarn for a new project for the MAL.  We meet when the store is closed on Sunday afternoons from 1-3pm and we offer tea and sweets.  We usually feature specific patterns but everyone is free to knit or crochet whatever they want. It's fun and a little more structured than a Community Stitch Meet, which we also offer. See below...


 Dyeing With Kool-Aid Workshops

Here are a few photos from Miguelle's Dyeing With Kool-Aid Workshops.  They are a lot of fun and we can do more if you are interested.  Just call the store at 519-371-4311 to let us know you would like to participate.  Bring some friends and we'll do one just for your group.  The cost is $20/person and we supply everything, including a 100g skein of sock weight yarn to dye and take home with you!! 



A Word About Classes

Our neighbour The Georgian Bay School of the Arts offers a wide array of textile and fibre based classes, including Knitting and Crochet classes.   If you sign up for a Knitting or Crochet class at GBArts, Riverside Yarns will offer a 15% discount on a set of needles/crochet hook and the yarn of your choice to help get you started on your class project.  Just let us know you are taking a Knitting or Crochet class at GBArts.
