Local Yarn Store Day

Saturday, April 27, 2019
10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Join us on Local Yarn Store Day and remind yourself why shopping at your local yarn store is so awesome!
Come in and see all the colors live and in person. Feel the difference between merino wool and alpaca. Listen to your fellow shoppers discuss their latest projects. Soak in all that fiber goodness, and the enthusiasm of your fellow crafters.
Your Local Yarn Store (LYS) is the place to commune with your tribe of fellow fiber artists. It’s the one place where people really get you. You don’t need to explain to us why making things with yarn is so fascinating, we completely understand!
And most of all, it’s the place where friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you fix your mistakes, read a pattern, pick out a new project, commiserate with you on your difficulties and celebrate your crafting wins. We are your biggest fiber art cheerleaders and we love being here to help you out!
In appreciation of you – our fabulous, loyal customers – we are staging a “Rigid Heddle-In.” We wanted to give you the chance to try out this hot new craft! Rigid Heddle Weaving is a great fiber art to add if you are already a knitter or crocheter – it lets you use your existing stash of yarns in a cool new way. Unlike standard looms, Rigid Heddle looms are easy to learn – and they’re small and portable! We’ll have several Rigid Heddle looms set up so you can try out this popular new craft for yourself. As Crafters, we all know that nothing beats a “hands on” opportunity! And experienced Weavers will be on hand to demonstrate and help you try it out.
Also as part of our Local Yarn Store Day celebration, we are offering a special “Ravelry Top to Bottom” class, led by guest instructor Debbi Stone. If you have always wanted to learn how to use Ravelry to its full potential, this is the class for you! The class is designed so that no matter which device you use to go to Ravelry (computer, tablet or phone) you’ll be able to navigate the inner working of the site and find everything you need! Click here for more info about this Specialty Class.
Please note: Advanced registration and payment are required for this class.
So join us for a day of celebrating our small, local and personal LYS, as well as the large community of fiber artists everywhere! We’ll have raffles throughout the day for fabulous gifts, free patterns, and lots of fiber fun!
See you on April 27th!
