February 27, 2021 –
The Flying Needles has teamed up with author & pattern designer Tanis Gray for a “Star Wars: Knit the Galaxy” event Feb. 26-28.
This weekend of fun and fiber features Tanis with four classes and a fireside chat. We also will host a Whimsical Wood Yarn Trunk Show, which will arrive at the shop at 12 pm Friday, Feb. 26.
Tanis will be teaching four virtual classes via Zoom, three of which are projects from her upcoming book “Star Wars Knitting the Galaxy,” which releases Jan. 26. The fourth class is a never-before-seen colorwork cowl called “This Is the Way,” a tip-of-the-hat to very popular The Mandalorian Disney series.
Registration is open for all four classes and the Fireside Chat with Tanis. As this is the season of giving, if you want family and/or friends to gift you a VIP ALL ACCESS MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU PASS or a HYPERSPACE PASS to the weekend or any class package, they can shop the event ONLINE. See below for class descriptions, pricing and yarn kits for the classes.
There is homework for all four classes, which must be completed prior to attending all classes.
The book must be purchased for your patterns. The Flying Needles has books for sale in limited quantities. The pattern for the This Is the Way cowl is included in the price of the class.
Please note: ALL FOUR CLASSES ARE VIRTUAL AND WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Should you have concerns with this format, we are happy to host a test Zoom call to help you become familiar with the Zoom platform. Please let us know if this is something you need or want.
Seating is limited so register early! Call The Flying Needles with questions: (757) 345-3655. Registrations are being handled through our website HERE.
