Homestead Hobbyist Trunk Show
Sunday April 14th 10am-5pm
Ken, the Homestead Hobbyist, is a local hand-dyer and spinner. The Homestead Hobbyist is a source for unique fiber and inspired color that you won't find elsewhere. Much of their spinning fiber is custom designed and blended to Ken's specifications - no other fiber artist carries these blends! Their mill spun yarns are created from unusual sheep breed and also from custom blends.
Not your children's egg hunt. This one is for yarn lovers! We'll hide eggs around the shop with fun surprises - look for short-term coupons as well as sweet treats.
Local Yarn Store Day - Saturday, April 27th
Local Yarn Store Day is a national brick and mortar shop appreciation day created by the TNNA Yarn Group. Launched in 2018, the second annual Local Yarn Store Day will take place on April 27 and is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners to drive awareness and celebrate the craft.
Come in and celebrate what you can get from the LYS experience that you can't get online. See and touch the yarn, interact with staff, teachers, and other like-minded makers. Show off your work, get help, get inspired!
We'll have free patterns from participating vendors, such as Plymouth and Blue Sky Fibers, and will be hosting a variety of fun events, including:
