    We never cancel events because we live nearby. Please check the roads in your area to make sure they are safe. Even if we get 15" of snow, Fred and Carole will be here. But be safe.

We will have fresh orders of sock yarn, working hooks, plus cones of sock yarn in white available for making blanks for dyeing. Participants should bring a stand for their machine and all necessary supplies, as well as a sack lunch.

    Non-machine owners are invited to attend and hand-knit socks. Who knows? Perhaps there is a machine in your future?

  • Yellow Rose on the Coast

    January 31, 2020 - February 2, 2020  
    St Mark's Episcopal Church, 2727 Airline Rd, Corpus Christi, TX 78414, USA

    Yellow Rose is providing a free area for Sock Crankers to demo and crank. There will be chairs and tables for us too. Jaz, the producer of the show, saw my sock machine at a fiber guild meeting and was really interested. All the knitters and spinners knew of someone with a machine but hadn't seen a csm in person. After hearing about the history and seeing the machine at work, everyone thought it was super interesting. I asked Jaz about demoing or having a crank-in in conjunction with the show and was met with an enthusiastic "YES!"

    "Yellow Rose On the Coast" is a first time added event and location for them this year. And therefore will be a smaller venue. It is convenient for people living in south Texas to get to.

    We have been invited to also have space at the Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta in Seguin, TX at the beginning of May too. Please look for that larger event in a separate post!

    As of Dec 1, 2019 the classes being offered in Corpus Christi "On the Coast" include Knitting for Crocheters, beginner knitting and crochet lingo, Two at a time Toe up socks with an afterthought heel on magic loop, Tapestry Crochet, Brioche - In the round and flat , Needle Felting, Wet Felting a Vessel, Weaving Tiny Tapestries, Color Blending for Spinners, Beginner Amigurumi, Beautiful Holes: A Lace Knitting Workshop, and Lace Knitting Basics. While there are no CSM classes, we are getting access to vendors, a space to crank and people to show our machines too. Building interest in cranking and sharing these wonderful machines!

    Free Entry, Cost per Class, Door Prizes.
