Because We Love You: Kamille's Class Giveaway

Where friends wind up. That's the cute slogan at Kamille's, and it's certainly true. Almost as soon as you walk into this specialty yarn and knitting shop, you find new friends to be made. Fellow customers, sitting comfortably in one of the shop's sitting areas, working those crochet hooks and knitting needles.

Today's Giveaway
Not quite sure how to work such equipment? No worries. Kamille's offers a variety of class options, from beginner courses to more advanced, and this is your chance to win! More on that at the end of this post.

Incredible Yarn Selection
Kamille's has been a popular spot in Gardner Village for eight years now, and it's easy to see why. Not only is this a friendly place to be, it also carries yarn from all over the world, including the biggest selection of alpaca yarn in the western United States!

Alpaca yarn is perfect for anyone allergic to wool or simply looking for a very soft and lovely option. Other yarn varieties include: Alpaca Blend, CoBaSi (cotton/bamboo/silk), sock yarn, New Zealand Merino, wool, remix (a mix of all non-wool, recycled), and lace (from very fine to extra chunky). Yes, this colorful specialty shop pretty much has it all when it comes to yarn.

You'll also find a complete line of in-house pattern options to choose from. Not sure by simply looking at an image on a pattern? Stop by Kamille's. There are incredible handmade displays throughout the store, showcasing the patterns and classes available.

Monthly Knit Alongs
New this year, Kamille and her staff are introducing monthly knitting blocks. By particpating in this popular program (feel free to join at any time), you'll end up with 12 blocks in total--just enough to complete your own afghan. Customers are loving this concept. In fact, I was just in the shop again yesterday, and I overheard a customer raving about how much fun she's having working on her afghan.  Each block you'll create will have a little scene. Here is what is out thus far:

A pretty winter pine scene.

Can't wait to see what's in store for March!

Take a Class
Want to learn more about the yarn arts? Or maybe you want to introduce your children or grandchildren to this glorious hobby? Either way, there's a class option for you. Kamille's offers parent/child classes for children 7+. Rather have a little "me" time without the kiddos? There are adult classes as well. Or perhaps you simply want help completing a project from a pattern you have? Bring the pattern in ahead of time (at least 2-3 days), and the staff at Kamille's will design a class completely customized to you and your pattern. Now that's service! Classes are very affordable at only $30 for a two-part class (two sessions that are each two hours long). For more on their classes, call Kamille's  at 801.282.0477 or stop by for info.

We Love You Giveaway
Speaking of classes, now's your chance to experience the class atmosphere completely free of charge! One lucky winner will receive a gift certificate, good for two two-hour sessions at Kamille's. To enter, simply comment on this post between now and Monday, March 2. We'll announce our winner on next Wednesday, March 4. Good luck!

And now, to announce last week's winner of the stunning floral throw from The Village Quilt Shop. Three cheers for Katee. You're the lucky lady who gets to wrap up in this pretty blanket.

"What a beautiful throw! I love all of the bright and happy colors!" --Katee
