Knitting in the Bar Anniversary Party!
Like we really need an excuse to drink some beers while knitting in public, but this is actually a good one! To help celebrate The Sweatshop of Love’s 5 year anniversary we are going to knock back a few and get our knitting on!
I’ll also be piecing out soon to spend the summer in Minneapolis so we need to spend as much time together as possible before I don’t see y’all till the fall.
I hope you can join us Friday May 13th at 8pm at Green Eye Lounge on Milwaukee and Western. This is a change of location from our normal knitting bar, but Streetside let us down at Christmas so I thought we should shake things up.
Green Eye has no kitchen, but our beloved Tamale Guy swings around often and if you want to grab some food and bring it in
Bring your knitting and some cash for beers (Green Eye is cash only!) and let’s do this anniversary thing up right!
RSVP over at The Sweashop’s Anniversary Party event page on Facebook!
As always, email me at allyson [at] thesweatshopoflove [dot] com with any questions and to sign up for a class. I can’t wait to get started!

One on One Classes: Is there something you are interested in knitting that you don’t see listed here? Pick a project or a new skill and email me to set up a one on one class! I generally schedule classes weekday nights 7-9pm and weekend days in two hour blocks between 10am-4pm. Send me a few dates and times that work for you. I will match our schedules, pick a time that works for both of us, and give you a class outline. One on one classes are $20 per hour; most classes are two hours long.
Knitting Book Club: We’re reading Once Again to Zelda by Marlene Wagman-Geller for our Monday, May 2nd meet up. If you are interested in joining the book club, send me an email. Please don’t come with knitting questions as I won’t be teaching anything (so the book club can be free of course), just come to knit and chat about our book!
