Not Your Grandma’s Valentine’s Day Collection

  • A bag with conversation hearts fabric holding purple yarn.

It’s that time again and something is in he air… is it love? Maybe… but it could also be that garbage truck that just drove by… This year we dedicate V-Day to the lesser obvious; Our Love of Reading, Our Right to say “Nah,” and of course, our love of blunt honesty. SWOON!

All three of these themes are evident in this lovely Valentine’s Collection that your Grandmother might not have expected.

Thank you again to artist Cynthia Frenette for being generally awesome and giving us all something to celebrate honestly on this special day.

Collection is live at 9am pst Friday the 14th!

It has pockets!

  • A blue bag with white alpaca wearing red scarves.

Have you ever wanted to take your knitting out while you run errands, but also wished your project bag looked slightly more “normal” (but not totally normal, because that’s no fun)? For a while now, I’ve wished that I had a bag that was like my box bags — tons of space, snap closure, and cute prints, but was also more stylish to take out to dinner or events. As much as I love my Large Kellie bags, they… look like a giant fabric block.

These Grace bags were my solution. They are 12″ tall, and 10″ wide when opened, making them just as spacious as the large kellie bag, but in a more classic style. PLUS! There are four pockets on the inside for extra needles, notions, wallets, lifesavers, etc.

The outside has a half pocket on one side with a clear outer layer. This pocket does close with a zipper, but it’s perfect for those things you don’t want to lose track of! I put my phone in there so I never have to dig for it anymore, plus my lip balm and pattern.

But wait — there’s more! The best part of this? It has a nylon adjustable shoulder strap, so you can customize it to fit your carrying needs. Cross body carry? Check. Shoulder carry? Check? Get rid of it because you don’t want a strap, you want to cradle it like a puppy? Check!

This first run of bags debuts with 10 different fabric options, and each option only had four produced, so these are limited prints until Summer of 2020.

Happy anniversary!

  • A pink and black bag with pink yarn and knitting needles.

2020 rings in the 11th year of business for mom-owned Slipped Stitch Studios!

We’ve come a long way from sewing project bags out of JOANN scraps at nap time on the kitchen table, to the lovely team and studio we have now. We are still quite small, but it works best that way.

We are so proud of all the indie designers and yarn dyers that we get to collaborate with. In 2019, we realized that over half of our inventory is shop-designed or indie-designed fabric! You can’t get this stuff anywhere else!

We have grown our product line from a single project bag size, pattern magnets and needle cases, to seven sizes of project bags ranging from Mini to our Extra Large Tote. We also have two types of needle and hook organization (large and small), a Needle Nook to keep your double-point, hook and circular projects in check while they are on the needles, and Yarn Socks to keep your yarn from getting tangled. Patty Lyons fans alone helped us bring back the Pattern Wallets out of retirement in 2018 and they are better than ever! Finally, we have expanded to sourcing and creating tons of unique stitch markers, Stitch Kits, and supplies! It’s been a busy 11 years, and we have so much more planned!

This weekend in Huntington Beach, California, we will be hosting a birthday party in the studio! Everyone is welcome to come on over and check out what we do and where we do it. We will have sales, door prizes, snacks and fun! The famous mobile yarn shop, the Yarnover Truck, will be at the shop to provide everyone with their daily does of fiber, and Parlez Vous Crochet will be in the shop with her beautiful and unique crocheted jewelry line!

If you can’t make it, no worries! You can celebrate our birthday from the comfort of your home! Use coupon code: HAPPY11BDAY to get $11 off your order of $60 or more! Offer good now until Sunday at midnight.

Keep up with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Ravelry!

The Magnolia Kit

  • A pink and white floral bag with pink and white yarn.

Alisa of KnitSpinQuilt and Debbie of Murky Depths Dyeworks have teamed up again to create another exclusive, limited edition kit — The Magnolia Kit.

We were both drawn to this Arts and Crafts Movement-style print, evocative of the textiles of William Morris. The claret colored magnolias with pop of magenta offset by the grey eucalyptus leaves are sure to bring a glimpse of springtime straight to your door.

THE BAG
You have your choice of either a medium (sock) or a large (shawl) drawstring bag.
The sock bag measures 10″ x 7″ x 3″. It will hold one or two skeins of yarn, great for a hat, sock or other small project.
The shawl bag measures 13″ x 8″ x 4″. It will hold two to four skeins of yarn, perfect for a shawl or small sweater.
We selected a claret satin ribbon with a picot edge as the perfect complement to the fabric.

THE YARN
You have your choice of one or two skeins of this gorgeous hand-dyed yarn.
Deep Sock is a soft, springy two-ply yarn with great stitch definition. Next-to-skin softness makes it perfect for garments and the added nylon makes it suitable for socks and other hard wearing items. These are 400 yds per 100 gram skeins of 80% SW Merino wool and 20% nylon.

SHIPPING DETAILS
This item is a PRE-ORDER. Orders will open on Friday, January 24 and close on Friday, February 7. Kits will ship on or before Friday, March 6. We know that’s a bit of time to wait, but we need to be certain we can deliver the highest-quality product possible, so we’re setting a conservative timeline to be sure!

We will be donating 5% of all sales to Direct Relief, an international charity doing work in Puerto Rico to assist with hurricane and earthquake recovery.
