Last Minute Gift Classes

To help you with your last minute gift making, we are offering 3 classes with quick gifts to make for your family and friends. Both felting classes are beginner level so no experience is needed and the cabled hat class is an introduction to cables so you just need to know how to knit, purl, and k2tog.

Needle Felted Scarf
First, from 12-2pm learn to make a beautiful needle felted scarf. You start with a silk scarf and needle felt some fun roving onto it. It takes about 4 hours to do the entire 14" x 72" scarf, so this class should have you well on your way. We are offering this class at a really great price, only $15. All your materials are included, but you do need to buy or bring some felting needles and a felting mat (brush style or sponge style) both of which can be purchased in the shop.

Needle Felted Wallet
Next, from 2-4 learn the basics of needle felting designs by making a needle felted wallet. Start with a blank 4" x 6" wallet and felt directly onto it. The designs can be as simple or complex as you desire. One wallet is included with the class and additional wallets can be purchased for $5 each. The class costs $15 and also includes as much roving as you need to finish the wallets you are working on during the class. Bring or buy your own felting needles.

Warm Winter Cabled Hat
Finally, from 4-6 learn to knit cables! We will be knitting a basic cabled hat with chunky yarn on size 15 needles. The hat is knit flat and the only skills you need are knitting, purling, decreasing and seaming. Robyn can knit one in 2 hours, it may take you a bit longer. This is a great new skill for beginners to add. Impress others with your knitting! The class costs $35 and comes with the yarn and needles you need to make the hat.

Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping
In addition to the classes, this Saturday from 2-5pm, Katherine Howe will be offering her lovely gift wrapping services in the shop. All of her papers and supplies are eco-friendly and recyclable and best of all her wrapping prices range from $2-5 with most packages costing around $4 with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Lexington Humane Society. As an added bonus, for every ReBelle bought gift that you have wrapped, we will donate an additional $1 to the Humane Society. This means that for a little more than the price of a gift bag you can support a good cause and avoid the hassle of wrapping your own gifts.

Star Illusion Blanket


Looking for a baby blanket pattern that is simple, interesting and practical? How about the Star Illusion Blanket. In illusion knitting when you look straight on, it just looks like stripes, but if you look at it from the side the pattern is revealed. It only uses knit and purl, and only one color at a time, so it is simple enough for a beginner. The Star Illusion Blanket is a free pattern on Ravelry and I made it using 6 skeins of Cascade Sierra. Sierra is a cotton/wool blend that is soft and washable, making it a great choice for baby things.
