With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture It On Canvas's product descriptions and a photon-carried look at its how-to template, customers can dive into the world of art, interior décor, and science simultaneously. Select a prize photo (digital or analog) from your archives and then use the online order form to begin your photomorphosis. Picture It On Canvas's 16"x20" canvases are made of archival-quality material, which is thicker, more durable, and less likely to get stuffed into a roommate's back pocket and creased than the original photo-paper medium. Its thick-bar gallery wrap caresses the 1.5" thick edges of your piece with an attractive canvas-y embrace that's suitable for hanging without a frame. Consult the FAQs for more information.
Five beginner knitting classes at The Yarn Shop will take fledgling yarn spinners over all the knitting basics—knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, ribbing, and more—as they complete their first scarf. The cost of all materials is covered, including a light or bright wool yarn and size-eight bamboo, circular needles. Additional supplies are available for purchase; the shop carries a full line of knitting and crocheting supplies and enough yarn to fill the scalps of a race of giant Raggedy Ann’s. Help is always available for projects, which many people bring to the shop to work on as they socialize and weave the names of disloyal latch hookers onto their tea cozies. Enjoy a dessert and specialty coffee or tea from The Yarn Shop's Pink Sheep Cafe. See the website for class schedules and pricing.
