Monday was a banner day at Crazy for Ewe - I finally received my official Arts and Entertainment liquor license. Sip Sip Knit and Sip Sip Crochet are official! It's been a long time coming, and I am just thrilled. Some people don't really understand what the whole concept is about and wonder, "Why on earth, does a yarn store need a liquor license?" In case anyone asks you what's up, here are five things you should know about Sip Sip Knit and Sip Sip Crochet
This is not about getting smashed at the yarn shop. I'm totally vested in the success of your project, and neither you nor I want to spend valuable time ripping out drunk stitches! This is about offering a warm and welcoming environment where you can relax and have a glass of wine and chat with other people who love to do what you love to do.
Because we're all very unlikely to bring out our knitting or crochet at a bar. I'm totally okay knitting in public -- I do it all the time, but really, in a bar. Never. Gonna. Happen. That is not to say I wouldn't like to go sit at a table and have a glass of wine and knit in peace, but that brings us to the next point
You're safe at a Sip Sip Knit event. No one is going to hit on you or look at you in an unsavory way. I think that's really nice to know.
Sometimes you want to get together with friends and DO something. Sure it's nice to get food together, but everyone likes a change of pace. When you go to or Sip Sip Knit or Sip Sip Crochet, you're laughing, having fun, and sharing an experience. It's a wonderful creative way to spend an evening.
Sip Sip Knit and Sip Sip Crochet are part of a growing number of ways to engage with the arts in downtown Leonardtown. We are smack in the middle of Leonardtown's Arts and Entertainment District, which is becoming the happening place in St. Mary's County. You can come and see art at our wonderful galleries and engage in making art yourself in a fun, relaxed, and creative environment.
Try it out this week at our Reds, Whites, and Ewe First Friday, July 7th from 5 to 7 pm. Bring a what you're working on, or get started on Octave, our featured project in beautiful Shibui Reed. Pattern is free with purchase!
I look forward to seeing you in the shop and around the table - you are always welcome here!
