Hey, y’all.  It’s time for another blog post…ok, I’m long overdue.

Now that the kids are going back to school and we’ve had a few cool days here and there, it’s time to get into some heavy duty yarnin’!  I crochet all year round (love thread and cotton when it’s warmer), but as long as I have a/c or a fan, I can work with anything!

It’s almost time for the New York City Yarn Crawl again, in which Slip Stitch Needlecraft will be participating again, so be sure to stop by…especially if you haven’t been there yet.  It’s my local yarn shop in the heart of Bed-Stuy! From out of town?  Make it a day trip 🙂

For my DC37 peeps and former students, it’s time for crochet classes to gear up for Fall; contact the office at 125 Barclay for details!  Be sure to register in advance starting this weekend and share with friends, family and former classmates!!!

Vogue Knitting Live NYC 2017 – Day 3

I skipped Day 2 in the Marketplace; that’s why I missed a few of my yarnie peeps and I don’t have anything to report. 😉

Day 3:  Best. Day. EVAH!  I came…I worked…I WON!!!

A BIG thank you goes out to Tess Designer Yarns…if I wasn’t working with them today, I would not have caught up with some of my yarnie peeps, met and made some new yarnie friends, and won a 3-class package for next year’s VKL!!!


Thank you Vogue Knitting Live!  For those who know me, I don’t run.  However, when I heard my name called for a prize, I let out the biggest YES and took off like a shot to collect it!  I’m sure that was a sight to behold…and if you got pictures or video, please share with me or tag me in it, because #PicturesOrItDidntHappen 🙂

Thank you to the ladies who gave me their beads…and I didn’t even have to flash for them. 😉

Thanks to everyone who congratulated me.  I have a whole year to get my knit game up! 😮

BIG shout-out to #TeamTessYarns.  If you visited and/or shopped at Tess Designer Yarns, please be sure to follow and/or share pictures of your makes with them on Facebook and Instagram.  If you missed them this time around, look for them at other shows; visit for their show schedule.

Thank you to Europa Cafe for breakfast and dinner; that Penne Bolognese was two-thumbs-up!

Thanks again to everyone who crossed my path today, you have fed my soul and made it EPIC!

I post this with sadness and the owner’s permission.  Seeta is closing the store; the last business day is Friday, June 19.  Having spoken with her, I wanted to put some feelers out to see if anyone is interested in the business and / or the inventory.

She is:

  • willing to sell just the business name (including the domain name for the website and the email address).
  • willing to sell just the merchandise.
  • willing to sell both the business name (including domain name, email), and the merchandise.

Please contact her directly at the store: 1970 Flatbush Avenue (between Kings Highway and Flatlands Avenue); p/718-677-3305; f/718-677-3306; email:; check for business hours.
