What’s included?

Friday September, 24th

3pm-5pm: Reception

Get to know our family. Meet fellow stitchers from around the nation, and reconnect with far-away friends here at the shop. Mix and mingle over cheese and wine. Relax amidst the rich color and warmth of our canvas covered walls. Bask in the technicolor glow of our fiber room.

Saturday September, 25th

10am – 6pm: The BIG day!

In the morning, we’ll revitalize and warm up with some light stretching and chair yoga led by Stephanie, followed by open stitch. You will have access to all our experts and our astounding thread room.

In small groups, take a tour of our very own Silk Roads Studio. Learn a little color theory along with our hand dying process from the owner, Jill. Roll up your sleeves and dye your own straw silk in either a sky or water color-way (which can be used for the optional Ferry ornament class!!).

After lunch, accompany us downtown for a ride on the Kingston ferry. (The ride which inspired the much beloved canvas “The Ferry Ride” by CBK’s Janis Mattox).

After soaking up the Edmonds experience, we’ll return to the shop for little late afternoon shop-and-stitch to live music. In the evening, enjoy a delicious catered dinner from Buccatini’s – with options for everyone. Email Julie at with any dietary restrictions/allergies.

Sunday September 26th 

10am – 12pm: Last minute shopping & open stitch, OR Ferry Boat Ornament class.

If you choose, join us for a morning of stitching Kathy Shenkel’s Ferry Boat Ornament (canvas $50 + thread kit (TBD), stitch guide $9.95, & instruction $40). We’re also offering this as a complete kit to go, so you can stitch your memories when you get home.
