The Flying Needles has teamed up with both Tanis Gray and Whimsical Wood Yarn for a “Star Wars: Knit the Galaxy” event Feb. 26-28.

This virtual event will feature four Zoom classes by Tanis all from her upcoming book “Star Wars Knitting the Galaxy,” which releases Jan. 26.

Samantha Hardman of Whimsical Wood Yarn will be shipping a trunk show that same weekend. Samantha’s yarn babies will arrive in the shop by 12 pm Friday, Feb. 26.

Registration is open for all four classes and the Fireside Chat with Tanis. As this is the season of giving, if you want family and/or friends to gift you a VIP ALL ACCESS MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU PASS or a HYPERSPACE PASS to the weekend or any class package, they can shop the event ONLINE. See below for pricing and class itineraries.

There is homework for all four classes, which must be completed prior to attending all classes.

The book must be purchased for your patterns. The Flying Needles has books for sale in limited quantities. The pattern for the This Is the Way cowl is included in the price of the class.


Seating is limited so register early! Call The Flying Needles to register: (757) 345-3655.
