  • 5 Shawls for Fall
  • The Subscriber of the Week
  • Class Updates

If you just can’t wait for This Week in Stitches each week, and you want even more fun, interesting links than the few we highlight here, follow @newstitchaday on Twitter or join our Facebook page. It’s painless. Really.

We had a great week here at NSAD Headquarters. Our first LIVE class was a big success and the feedback has been really good. We can’t wait for the next one in two weeks. More about that later in the post.

Don’t forget to answer our question of the week at the bottom of this post!

Welcome to Our New Email Subscribers

We had amazing week with 307 people coming on board the New Stitch a Day email list! Great job to all of you who are telling your friends about the site on Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry, Knitting Paradise, Pinterest, and at your local yarn stores. Keep up the good work!

LIVE Class Registration Is Now Open!!!

I’m so happy that our first class, The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Cast Ons (Part 1), was received with such a great response. We had an almost full class and it was nice to finally talk to and even see some of our subscribers. I actually threw in a few tips on fixing common problems with casting on, and a bonus cast on. We did have time to fit them all, so I stuck around longer so we could get them all in. If you missed it you can still pre-order the recording here.

BIG NEWS!! We’re dropping the price of all our LIVE classes from $30 to $20. That’s more than 30% off! We got lots of feedback saying that was what you were willing to pay for a class and we’re giving you what you’ve asked for!

I can’t wait for the next class on Saturday, August 8th:

The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Bind Offs (Part 1)

    I have been on several of your pages and they say to answer the question of the week at the end of the post. I have gone through each page twice and can find no question of the week at the end or any other part of the post.
