Hello my Brassy friends!
It has been quite a summer! It kicked off with a fire in Rockton, the temporary closure of that location as we moved to our new location in Roscoe and now we are ready to have a Grand Re-Opening of our Rockton shop! What a whirlwind!
Let's talk about the two locations in more detail....
Rockton - Brass Octopus Stitchery & Gifts
This location will house all of our hand stitchery: Cross-stitch, Embroidery, Sashiko, Macrame and Yarn - both our luxurious hand-dyed Siren Song Yarns plus economical yarns from Premier Yarns & other manufacturers. This shop will also have supplies/notions for all of the hand stitchery as well including the Japanese Cosmo floss and hand-dyed Valdani floss for your embroidery and cross-stitch projects! We will also feature all types of quirky gifts and handmade items when you need a pre-made thoughtful gift for a friend or family member!
Private lessons for Cross-stitch and Crochet are available at the Rockton location from 11 am - 12 pm on Thursday/Friday and at 4-5 pm Thursday/Friday/Saturdays. Sign up for your session online or in shop and we will contact you to schedule your day! Knitting Classes are available at the Roscoe location - see our class schedule for details.
Roscoe - Brass Octopus Textile, Fiber & Maker's Studio
Our newest location in the Highlander Mall is exactly 3.3 miles down the same road - just a new village! Look for us in the corner between the Title Underwriters and the Dental Office! We have signage planned and it will be hung as soon as we can. Thank you for your persistence in finding us - look for the Grand Opening banner in front of the shop!
The Roscoe location houses our fabrics, notions, bag-making supplies and our inspirational Maker's Studio. Most classes will occur at the Roscoe location unless otherwise indicated on the class schedule. All in-shop pickup orders that are placed online will be available at the Roscoe location.
We hope this clears up any confusion over the two locations and you stop in soon to see for yourself all of the wonderful happenings at the Brass!
