Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival and Classes

If you've been hankering for an in-person class, Kelli is teaching FIVE at the Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival in Franklin, IN.  Join her and fellow minion, Lauren, June 3 and 4 for yarn filled shenanigans.  Kelli's classes include Portu-nental knitting, Beginning Shuttle Tatting, Estonian Lace, Oops! Do I Have to Knit it Again?, and Beginning Bibilla.  There is still room in all of her classes, so grab a friend and learn something new.  All of her classes include materials and most include kits!

Take a Class at Fiber U

Kelli is teaching all over this summer, and she can't wait to teach Mediterranean Knotted Lace at Fiber U in Lebanon, MO July 9 & 10. If you've been interested in this fun lace art, it's a great time to check out Fiber U!  There are tons of amazing classes and Kelli still has room in her classes both days.  

IOLI Conference

Did you hear?  The International Organization of Lace, Inc. Conference is back in person for 2022!  Kelli is so excited to be teaching an online tatting class Sunday, plus a 4 day morning tatting class too.     There is still room in her classes and plenty of time to sign up.  We hope you'll join Kelli & Tina at the IOLI Conference in Mesa, AZ for a bit of "BlackSheep on the Road" and some fabulous classes!

We Support Ukraine

Tina and Kelli have been working on some patterns and kits for sunflowers for Ukraine.  Kits and patterns are available now with all profits going to World Central Kitchen or Global Giving

You can order your Tatted, Med. Knotted Lace, or Embroidery kit here or order just the PDF pattern here.  The PDF pattern will include all of the sunflower patterns we create in all of the needlearts. 

Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!

Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. We are making blankets, but with a twist.

This is a VERY relaxed Crochet/Knit/Stitch/Tat-a-long that you can join at any time.  We have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration.  Tina's Grandma's Flower Afghan pattern is free to participants and Kelli's BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern is too.  We also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes.

Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too.  Tina is stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. Kelli is also tatting a temperature table runner and has a free pattern on our Knit/Crochet-a-long page. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here

We Talk and Teach Every Week!

Did you know we have giveaways, solicit ideas for "online skill videos," teach, and chat all week? Join Kelli & Tina on the YouTube channel, TikTokInstagram, and Facebook.  Leave a comment or send us an email if you want us to teach something specific.
