Jonathan Castro returns with our favorite holiday gifts. Beautiful scented candles and handcrafted mugs. We just can't get enough!
Pop-up shops at Knitty City are an opportunity for entrepreneurial individuals to have a space to show and sell their products.
We will feature a different small business in front of Knitty City on Saturdays. Please stop by, check out what they have to offer, and ask them about what they do.
20% of all pop-up sales are donated to non-profit organizations. This season, we will be giving 20% to the Hawaii Community Foundation's Maui Strong Fund.
Wednesdays, 6-7pm at Knitty City after hours
Bring one of your many Works in Progress and hangout and meet fellow crafters in the store after hours. There's no teaching after dark, but we'll keep the register open if you need to pick up any supplies.
Every Thursday EXCEPT the first Thursday of each month (Book Club Thursdays)
Meets in store, 6-8pm
We're bringing back in-store events, starting with a soft-opening of our weekly Men's Night on Thursdays. Bring your knitting, crochet, or spinning and join us for a casual after hours hangout at Knitty City. No reservations necessary.
Fridays, 5-6pm in front of Knitty City
Do you have a pile of clothes you've been meaning to fix? Why not sew on that button or patch that hole in the company of other makers and menders? Come to Mending Circle, where we will gather, share ideas about repair, extend the lives of our garments, and hopefully make a dent in that pile!
Mending Circle is intended as an informal time and space to connect over our projects. It is not an instructional class or a repair service. Please bring your own materials. There is no charge to participate, but any donations will go to Fashion Revolution, an nonprofit organization fighting for "a global fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment and values people over growth and profit."
Book Club meetings are held at Knitty City on the first Thursday of each month.
The Knitty City Book Club is unable to accept new members at this time.

Kentucky, 1850. An enslaved groom named Jarret and a bay foal forge a bond of understanding that will carry the horse to record-setting victories across the South. When the nation erupts in civil war, an itinerant young artist who has made his name on paintings of the racehorse takes up arms for the Union. On a perilous night, he reunites with the stallion and his groom, very far from the glamor of any racetrack.

‘As I Lay Dying‘ is a classic American novel that’s set in Mississippi, specifically Yoknapatawpha County, close to where the author grew up. It follows the Bundren family as they bring their mother’s corpse to Jefferson, the town she wished to be buried. Along the way, the 15 different narrators describe events, what led them there, and what personal issues they’re dealing with.
