Local Yarn Store Day sign

Local Yarn Store Day is a day to celebrate your LYS!

Local yarn stores bring together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers, and stitchers to drive awareness and celebrate the craft. Celebrate and support your LYS by visiting us on Saturday, April 27 (or any day, for that matter)!

All customers on Saturday can enter to win one of three door prizes! Earn extra entries with your purchase, too.

We will have a couple special offers to help us celebrate:

Get your choice of a free pattern for the Pixel or Byte cowl with any Berroco yarn purchase. Pixel is a straight-forward two-color knit written for Berroco Vintage, but you can use any worsted weight yarn.  Check out our model in Remix!  Byte is done using a mosaic crochet technique that is great fun to do!

Byte and Pixel cowls from Berroco 

Purchase $50 or more in yarn or other products from the Knitting Fever brands and you can be entered into a drawing to win Lykke knitting needle or crochet hook sets! KFI will draw one name from every 20 entries received. Just email a copy of your April 27th receipt to KFI (we will have flyers for people who purchase KFI tomorrow).

 New Arrivals: We have new bags from Emma Ball (adorable and useful!), a restock of Uneek and Harvest from Urth Yarns (check out the awesome Prismarine scarf), new colors of sock yarn, and so much more! Please come see us!

Upcoming Classes/Events:

Thursday Night Drop-In is a chance to get some help on a troublesome project or just hang out and knit or crochet with a fun group!  There is no charge to drop in.  Sessions are held on most Thursdays with the next sessions planned for May 9, May 16, and May 30 from 6-8pm. 

There will be NO Thursday night drop-in on May 2 and May 23.

Thank you for making us your Local Yarn Store!
