What we do

Iron Horse developed from a dream of owning and raising animals that produce some of the finest wool/fiber products. It grew to incorporate a community of local artisans to showcase and bring their one of a kind hand crafted art to the community. Joining the Natick downtown area and highlighting our artisans as well as expanding the fiber products, yarns, fiber art equipment and continuing our full line of classes and workshops has made the circle complete. We are unique in what we offer and hope you will stop in for a visit.

When it comes to knitting, crocheting, felt making or hand spinning, no question is silly. Our wish is for everyone who wants to learn or to continue with their fiber art passion have a peaceful place to come. Our co-op members and staff are willing to help you select the special gift, accessory, fiber product or equipment.

No we are not talking about French pastry!   Brioche stitch is a fun way to add two-sided texture to a knitting project.  It's super warm and springy and its lots of fun to knit too.  Though two color brioche knitting sounds difficult, it is actually easy!  Only one color is used on a row.  It also makes it easier to see what is going on in your knitting.

Brioche stitch is perfect for scarves, hats, hot pads, or anything that you want to give a different look and a lot of warmth.  We will be making a two color cowl.  This cowl is totally reversible also! Pattern will be provided   Materials Needed:  US #7 circular needles 16",  1 skein worsted weight yarn in two contrasting colors,   Stitch marker.    FEE:  $60.00 plus materials.  The $4.00 pattern will be provided by Iron Horse.

 UFO PARTY!!!                                                                                     Though we try to inspire those that walk through our doors every day, there are many times that you, our customers, students and friends, inspire us to bring you something new! 

How many of you have that UFO (Unfinished Object) buried in the closet, under the bed or staring at you in a bag?  It is time to finish that project.  It's time to finish that project! Dust it off, find the pattern and bring it into our new UFO PARTY!  We will hold these parties every 4-6 weeks on a Monday evening and maybe even a Saturday afternoon.Make sure to look at your newsletter and facebook for a session each month.

Karin will be hosting these sessions. There will be encouragement, laughter and occasionally a little showing of tears when someone needs to rip back but you will be in good company! There will be minimal instruction during these sessions but the community of knitters can offer help.

The first UFO PARTY will be Monday evening November 26 from 6-8 PM.  Let us help to keep the holiday stress at a minimum.         Fee will be $10 per person to help donate to a local charity-Jeff's Place, a childrens bereavement center in Framingham, defray Karin's time and occasional help.
