Whip Your Knitting into Shape at Nine Rubies

Nine Rubies is delighted to announce that The Domiknitrix AKA Jennifer Stafford, will be coming to Nine Rubies on Saturday, November 25th from 3-7 pm. Nine Rubies is honored to be her first book signing event.

Jennifer has a unique, fun and funky approach to knitting. The book teaches the basics of knitting, purling and finishing, but Jennifer’s real talent is apparent in the more than 20 great patterns. She is the most adventurous knitter - hates those seams and will do anything to avoid them altogether. Her designs are very San Francisco hip - parents and teenagers are going to argue over who’s wearing this look. And you’re going to love making them…

In order to get a sense of the quantities we need to order, we’re asking that you pre-order the book if you will be coming to the signing (or if you just want a copy). Please stop by the store or call us if you are interested. We’ll have extra copies of the book at the event if you don’t want to pre-order. Of course, you are more than welcome to come to the event even if you don’t order the book - Jennifer would be happy to help you boss your yarn around.

The store is located in downtown San Mateo at 28 E. 3rd Avenue, just east of El Camino. There is street parking as well as a parking structure located around the corner at 2nd Avenue and El Camino. The store phone number is 650-685-6205. Hope to see you there.

looking for new Bay Area Knitter Moderators

Hi All,

I am so happy this Bay Area Knitters ring has taken off! We have 146 members now.

Some of you who follow the ring may know that I recently moved up to Seattle, WA for graduate school. I've found I'm not having enough time to manage the ring. I'm looking for a couple people to help take over the moderation of the ring and community blog.

Shoot me an email at crafteratheart AT gmail DOTcom if you are interested.
