Local Yarn Shop Day gives us all the opportunity to share some love for the bricks & mortar stores that make it all possible! Local yarn shops celebrate the excitement of really great news with you (a finished project, new job, new baby, retirement) and hug you along tough journeys where you need that yarn to get you through. We’re your friends who commiserate ripping out that row ONE MORE TIME and rejoice with you when all the ends are finally woven in. We’re your real fiber friends unlike any other place you can purchase yarn or get a pattern. The National Needlearts Association created LYS Day as our chance to celebrate how the LYS is That Place in our local community and in our hearts. Here’s how The Artful Yarn plans to celebrate:
Friday evening, April 26
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Kick-off LYS Day the evening before with our Yarntini Night exclusive appearance by LeeAnn Halley, owner of the Village Herb Shop. LeeAnn premieres her newly created natural homecare line of cleaning products as a nod to Earth Day and support of our shop’s own mission of championing happy, healthy yarn made ethically. Reservations are required as we are limited to 15 guests. Refreshments and a goodie bag from the Village Herb Shop along with great beverages and little bites. $5 ticket/person refunded on any purchase that evening.
