Here at Stitch Space, we are thrilled to be back in business after the fire in March. If you haven’t been in to see us at our new temporary location, we can’t wait to see you soon! The new address is 111 N. Madison, Suite #4 in Webb City, MO. Give us a call if you need more directions, 417-673-2240.
One thing that helped us in our recovery was attending The National NeedleArts Association market this summer. We were able to see all kind of great new products, and pick up a few new lines for our re-launch. What a great break from all of that mess!
We are so excited to announce that we are now offering CustomFit!
CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. Design fit and expertise are built-in, so you get to make all the fun choices (“I want a long-sleeved scoop-neck!”), without worrying about the hard ones (“How much ease do I need in my waist?”). CustomFit builds a pattern that fits beautifully from hem to neck, and everywhere in between.
Whaaaaaaaat???? Yes. You heard me right. Magical sweater pattern generating software from the lovely and brilliant Amy Herzog, author of “Knit To Flatter.” I was floored when I heard about the program, and couldn’t wait to find out how we could have it here at our very own Stitch Space!
So, how’s it work?
We have been trained to do CustomFit measurements here in the store, and we’re ready to kick things off in a big way!
Join us for our CustomFit Launch party, Friday August 15th from 5-8 PM to get measured and join us for the Fall Festival Sweater Knit-A-Long that runs through November 15th! Call ahead to get on the schedule for measurements at 417-673-2240, or just come and go as you please for more information!
We also have 6 class sessions scheduled throughout the Knit-A-Long to help you in every phase of the sweater knitting process. You can take all 6, or just the ones you want (Seaming anyone?). Check out that schedule here, and learn more about the Knit-A-Long here!
Then, save the date for our Sweater Party on November 15th from 4-6 PM! Complete your sweater during the KAL and wear it to the party to be entered in drawings for all sorts of prizes!
We can’t wait to help you knit a sweater you love!
