KNITTING TIPS AND SHORTCUTS CLASS

Crescent County owner Lisa Forcino has invited Eva Gorman, owner of Josefina Fine Knits in Greenville, to hold a special class at Lisa’s store in Crescent Mills on Saturday, July 29, from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Eva titled her class “Knitting, Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts,” explaining that all knitters will eventually need to learn to fix their own mistakes on the fly instead of ripping out and starting the project over with the best techniques to help you “read” your knitting. The $65 per person registration fee includes lunch. The class is limited to eight students; to register contact Eva at 415-497-7514.

NICE LANDSCAPING JOB

ENJOY THE ‘PIES OF PARADISE’

The treats just keep coming this summer at the Paradise Grill in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center in Quincy.

The restaurant features an extensive selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner meals and sides.
