Our latest FibeR.S.V.P. was huge success! Everyone was treated to a preview of all of the fabulous new fibers for Spring and Summer 2013 from some of our most popular companies with a yarn tasting. A coordinating Pantone Spring/Summer 2013 laminated color card with all of the details and a little taste of the yarns previewed went home with every one who attended.
Fashion preview, free patterns, door prizes and great food rounded out the evening!

Not to mention Hazy conditions – Kidsilk Haze Trio, that is. Okay, so we are in no danger of any of these weather conditions, but it doesn’t mean we can’t dream. And Rowan is making our knitting dreams a lot sweeter with new yarns and patterns available at Jessica Knits and Crochets!
Frost is a beautiful, soft metallic yarn that is perfect for garments. It shows textured stitches well and has some exquisite, elegant colors to choose from.
Tumble is a chunky, but lofty yarn that is 90% Alpaca and 10% Cotton. You’ll fall in love with the patterns and you’ll be amazed at how quickly is knits up. It’s a big yarn, but it won’t weigh you down.
Kidsilk Haze Trio brings you the beauty of Rowan’s always popular Kidsilk Haze in a heavier (but still lightweight) yarn. For garments and accessories that have that great look of Kidsilk Haze without all of the effort, this is your go-to yarn. And wait until you see the pattern book. One word: Am-Haze-ing!
Come get it while supplies last (and before the real frost hits!).

JKnits and Crochets had a great time at Stitch N’ Pitch with Dbacks! It was a chance to meet new stitchers and see old friends. Cathrine, Viki and Kathy enjoyed chatting with everyone and handing out info on the store, class schedules and free samples from the great folks at Bar Maids, they helped sponsor our giveaways and drawing prizes.
We are looking forward to next year. Hopefully the word will get out about what a great time we all had at the Ball Park so that more of our fellow stitchers will join us next year!

Up and Out
We celebrated World Wide Knit in Public Day in style at JKnits & Crochets. The day began by “yarn bombing” the light post in front of the shop. The world should truly be covered in yarn – the post looks a lot happier! Then we met at Paradise Valley Mall for a Knit in Public gathering. By knitting and crocheting in public, we let everyone know that these great skills are back and better than ever. Do you know someone who knits or crochets? Tell them about our shop. And we all know people who don’t knit or crochet. Isn’t it time we spread the love? Tell them about JKnits & Crochets great beginner classes. We’ll get them on board!

Not bored. We have two new sources of information at Jessica Knits and Crochets. You’ll see one immediately upon entering the shop. Look directly in front of you and a beautiful glass and wood sign alerts you to what’s new in the shop, welcomes special groups and classes that day and, most importantly, tells you what the In-Store special is for the week. This is an unadvertised special and it’s always fantastic! It changes every week, so stop in often to check out the bargains.
We also have a new community board by our exclusive coffee bar. You’ll find recent customer projects, current events, upcoming festivities and more on this fun, informative bulletin board. Show us a recent project made out of our yarn and we’ll feature you on the board. Or just check it out while helping yourself to a goodie and coffee and get inspired.

- Evening with Ysolda Teague
It was a “Tuesday Treat” for the crowd that gathered to see popular knitwear designer Ysolda Teague at Jessica Knits. Amidst samples of her beautiful garments, Ysolda signed books and told stories with her sweet, barely-there Scottish accent.
Among the garments on display were three sizes of sweaters from Ysolda’s book Little Red in the City, a collection of flattering designs for all body types. Jessica Knits is proud to be offering a class in which you learn how to create Ysolda’s Cria sweater pattern, a flattering top-down garment fitted to your exact proportions. The class is being taught by Cathrine, and begins March 1st, so sign up now as space is limited.
Jessica Knits is happy to offer pre-orders on Ysolda’s latest book, Saturday Treat, featuring new designs using the new Lantern Moon Scrumptious yarn from Fyberspates (available locally only at Jessica Knits!). The silk/wool blends of these yarns are spectacular and the pattern support provides something for everyone.
See you soon!

It’s better, brighter, and bustling with excitement. Jessica Knits and Crochets is open for business. The store has been reorganized and renovated with you, the customer, in mind. And the response has been overwhelming. Aside from being your go-to shop for all of your knitting and crochet needs (and it is a need, isn’t it?), we want to be your community hangout. So we’ve extended our hours, added some atmosphere, and we’re hosting events to help everyone understand that we are your knitting home away from home. And with football season approaching, who couldn’t use one of those?
Plus, we have Artyarn, Araucania, Addi Click sets, Mango Moon, Tinseltown, and so much more great fiber to enhance your holiday knitting. Not to mention a shipment of Mountain Colors that’s on the way (and brand new to the store).
We’d love to see you. And once, more, thank you to all of our loyal and devoted customers who offered their support throughout the flood. Like a Phoenix, we’ve come out better than ever!

We are sorry to report a flooding incident at Jessica Knits and Crochets. We are working hard to get everything up and running as quickly as possible. Please rest assured that we are doing everything we can to put things back in order. Also know that classes are moving forward as scheduled. It will take more than some water to make us stop serving our loyal customers.
Thank you for your support and your kind and generous emails. We are looking forward to a better Jessica Knits and Crochets. And we are looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
