Knitche is the Illinois flagship store for Quince & Co.! We have transformed one of the rooms in our shop to house the lovely, sustainable, mostly American collection of natural fibers from the Portland, Maine-based company that so many have come to love for their natural aesthetic and beautiful patterns. Read more about the Quince & Co. story here. We carry the company's full yarn line and entire pattern library.
Here are a few pictures from our Quince & Co launch party:
Charity Knit Nights
Second Thursday of the month from 7 - 9 pm
Knitche charity knitters meet once a month to support worthy causes near and far. We gather on the second Thursday of the month to knit teddy bears for the Mother Bear Project, an organization providing a bit of comfort, in the form of a handmade teddy bear, to children affected by AIDS/HIV in emerging African countries. A nominal donation for the pattern subsidizes the shipping of each bear for this truly selfless cause. We are also knitting/crocheting blankets for the Project Linus Foundation as well as making "jumpers" for oil-soaked penguins for the Penguin Foundation. For more information on these efforts, please visit www.motherbearproject.org, www.projectlinus.org, and www.penguinfoundation.org.
Thursdays (except second Thursday of the month which is devoted to Charity Knitting) from 7 - 9 pm Join our informal knitting circle for some stitching camaraderie. Please try to arrive as close to 7 pm as possible as this is when will be closing up our retail operation.
