This Week's Kits of the Week
Want to know more? Just click on the "KITS OF THE WEEK" tab above for info on this week's kits — and some of our popular past kits, too!
Our list of classes keeps growing!
After a long year (mostly) without, we're thrilled to be offering in-shop classes. Scroll down under CLASSES to the appropriate tab to find your craft of interest. Remember, we're just getting started — check back regularly as our class offerings grow! We also have a continuing Knitting U with Debi Padlicki on Zoom (Tuesday mornings).
Note: Due to our classroom size, all classes have a maximum of 5 students until we no longer have to physically distance. Masks and hand sanitizer also are required.

Help us support Images of Hope
Be sure to stop by the shop soon to take a look at the gorgeous quilt on display in our window.
Our quilt — "Mum's the Word," pieced and quilted by Kay Ford—is one of a dozen donated quilts on display in local shops up and down Main Street that will be auctioned off online later this month as a fundraiser for Images of Hope. This nonprofit organization promotes cancer awareness and provides healing activities to anyone in El Dorado County impacted by cancer and is a fund under the Marshall Foundation for Community Health. Lofty Lou's is proud to be a supporter.
We also proud to note that our own Knit/Crochet University instructor, Theresa Ainsworth, is one of the teachers providing activities through Images of Hope. Along with learning to knit, participants can take art therapy and Pilates classes, among others.
To see all the quilts and participate in the online auction, which takes place between May 21 and 31, click on the button below. We also are selling calendars to benefit Images of Hope, with each month featuring a different quilt. Price is $20 and purchases must be made by cash or checks (made out to Images of Hope) only.
Have you sat in on any of our FREE "Fiber Friends" social sessions on Zoom yet? What a fun way to socialize with other knit/crochet enthusiasts while keeping a safe distance (and no masks required)! Since all are hosted by one of our Lofty Ladies or instructors, there's always someone there to answer questions and provide help.
