It’s been another great week at NSAD and we’re working on a lot of new things behind the scenes. Things that will make the site even more useful as well as new patterns, new classes, and a few more surprises. You’ll hear more about those in the coming weeks but right now we’re gearing up for our next live class.

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 297 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!
