Big events at Nine Rubies Knitting, San Mateo

I wanted to let everyone know what is happening at Nine Rubies in the next 6 weeks or so.

We kick off our busy early Fall with a book signing this Saturday afternoon:

Alison Jeppson Hyde, author of Wrapped in Comfort: Knitted Lace Shawls
Date: Saturday, August 18th
Time: 3:00 – 4:30 pm

Come meet this charming author and learn more about how her wonderful stories evolved into beautiful shawls

Please note that Alison has some serious health issues. Please don’t come if you have a cold. We’ll be happy to arrange for her to sign your book, and you can pick it up after the event.
