WoolWinders Virtual Social Safari
Knitting & Crochet Groups
At WoolWinders Yarn Shop, our monthly group classes are called 'Safari' classes. Our Safari class is our most popular class with many Safari students gaining lifelong friendships.
With the current COVID-19 pandemic we know many of our Safari friends are missing the social aspects of the classes. It's more than just the instruction (although we've been told the knitting project help is KEY!). But also the Safari classes are a way to connect with the WoolWinders community, our friends. So to help all of us out in this time of social distancing, we're offering FREE Virtual Social Safari sessions!
The Virtual Social Safari sessions are online video chat sessions hosted by a WoolWinders staff member. We are currently keeping these to a limited number of virtual seats. These web-video sessions are not meant to be instruction or project help but instead used as a way for us to all connect with each other during this difficult time. Come be social (virtually!) with us!
Find the session that works best for you, registration is free but we need your email so we can send you the session link.
As the days and weeks of our social distancing continue, we'll launch more Virtual Social Safari sessions, so check back often and register for the sessions that work for you! The WoolWinders family will get through this (albeit at a distance!).

WoolWinders has joined with other select yarn shops around the world as brand ambassadors for Rowan. We are honored to join forces with this well-known, iconic yarn brand. As a Flagship Store, we will have access to trunk shows, models, select yarns, and special events that will bring you the best in design and yarn options right here in Maryland!
Rowan is known for its classic pattern collections, created by prominent designers such as Kaffe Fassett, Kim Hargreaves and Martin Storey. Last fall, well-known knitting icons Arne & Carlos joined Rowan’s offering of designers. The latest issue of Rowan Magazine, No. 64, celebrates both these collaborations and their “Ruby” 40th Anniversary with a collection of patterns designed by these and other Rowan favorites, all in shades of red.

Woolwinders is happy to introduce 29 Bridges Studio to our local knitting community. The yarn for 29 Bridges Studio is hand dyed right here in Maryland by local indie-dyer, Mary Herron. Woolwinders worked directly with Mary to offer you some exclusive color pairings just for this trunk show!
Mary will be on hand at Woolwinders for portions of the Trunk Show. Drop by to meet her and learn more about her dying process, the specialty yarns she selects, and the inspirations for her colors.
During the two weeks of the trunk show schedule, Mary will be available in the shop on the following dates:
ANNAPOLIS - August 18 & 19 (Saturday and Sunday)
ROCKVILLE - August 25 & 26 (Saturday and Sunday)
Natural Fibers - Earthy, Calm, Cozy Colors!
The yarns of 29 Bridges Studio are inspired by life's landscapes and experiences - from gorgeous neutrals to vibrant bright colors. The Free Your Fade shawl is just one example of a project that knits up beautifully with Mary's yarns. We'll have this and many more samples for you to squeeze and be inspired by at both the Annapolis and Rockville Trunk Shows. We can help you pick out the perfect palette for your fall project!
