Beginning 21 June 2015 Silk Road Textiles will be joining the Row by Row Experience. This national summer shop hop features free patterns at each participating shop, this year all with a water theme. We have been working hard with a local artist and a budding designer to bring you an amazing row. Brush up your paper piecing skills with a class, because you’ll need them for this knockout pattern! Also coming soon are our custom shop license plates for the Row by Row Experience. The “Fiber Prescription” plate pictured above pays homage to our building’s roots as a pharmacy.
The summer calendar is finally here, and it is packed with exciting learning opportunities. Of particular note are the wealth of kids classes for budding fiber artists ages eight and up. Learn to sew and make lots of projects this summer, or try your hand at knitting or crocheting.
Students who have never sewn at Silk Road Textiles before will need to take the two day Kids Intro to Sewing to make sure we’re all on the same page. Then you’re free to take any of the classes on the calendar including the brand new Kids Dress to Cook where we’ll be making a placemat, a hot pad, and a stylish apron.
Silk Road Textiles is open “late” every Thursday night. Our resident experts are in the house from 6-8PM. Bring an idea – bring a project – bring a question – bring yourself! One knitter said, ” It was so nice to sit, chat and knit. Very relaxing. I may have to come in every week!” – Please do, all hand-stitchers are welcome.
Looking for an inspirational treat? Look no further than our signature “6-Pack Sampler” club! Each month participating customers will receive a collection of 6 pieces of fabric and a spool of matching Presencia thread. Each pack will have its own theme sure to delight you. This program makes a terrific gift for the fiber enthusiast! Enroll at any time. Learn more here.
Silk Road Textiles is honored to have Like Simcock of Miami University returning to teach her amazing Landscape and Architectural Quilt class. Trained in painting, Like will help you take a favorite photo and turn it into simple shapes that can be hand quilted into a fiber masterpiece. All the sewing in this class is done by hand, so no experience is needed, just an open and adventurous mind!
Join Silk Road Textiles for our monthly Sip & Stitch! A great time to hang out with other folks who stitch in any number of ways. Bring your favorite beverage and any type of stitchery project you’d like to work on. Inspire others and be inspired in a friendly environment.
Upcoming Dates: 5/26, 6/30, 7/28, and 8/25
Participants who want to continue the camaraderie after the store closes can meet at Marty’s Hops and Vines, located next to Silk Road Textiles. Each Tuesday is Ladies’ Night at Marty’s.
