The Yarn Discovery Tour (YDT) is just around the corner! Nineteen shops in Northeast Ohio come together to host a nearly 18-day shop-hop with new yarns, great project ideas and your opportunity to see the beauty of little towns and big cities in our corner of the state. The YDT is more than just a fun shopping experience; it's also about supporting the Shop Local movement, All of the shops on the YDT are owned by women. And what an amazing, talented and passionate group of women they are! They care about you! They share your love of fiber crafting in every possible way. Not only do they provide great yarn shopping, they help you when you need it from finding that exciting project to helping you fix mistakes. Local yarn shops also support their local communities by hiring local and supporting efforts like your high school football teams, community theater arts, Girl Scouts, first responders, women's shelters, charities of all sorts. The YDT also brings people to community restaurants and other small businesses which supports local economies. At this time of year and ALL year long, your support of local yarn shops and small retailers means so much! It's our 11th year! Please buy a passport and join the fun! Be a part of Shop Local. You might even win a prize basket! And you will definitely score beautiful yarn, great patterns, our fun souvenir tote bag and of course, pins! Looking forward to seeing you in the shop soon!

We don't mean to do it, but for some inexplicable reason, when we turn that calendar page to August, everything changes. It's not all about summer any more! Now some of us are gearing up for back-to-school. And for all of us, we start thinking that Fall is almost here. It's not really, but our minds go there after years of cunning training! And we start to ask questions like, Are you offering a Christmas stocking class soon? Or What are your sweater classes going to be? And a big influx of people who want to learn how to knit or crochet start emailing us about classes. What?! It's 90+ degrees outside! Secretly, we are thrilled - super THRILLED for Fall knitting!
You'll want to really keep an eye on our website for upcoming classes and events! They aren't all posted yet as we are still confirming instructors and dates and supplies, but you'll see a few of them already posted. And there's so much more to come! We have an exciting schedule of Trunk Shows from new vendors, yarn dyers, accessory designers and more that we'll add to the calendar soon. And new yarns will start coming into the shop over the next 3-4 weeks. And even more classes will be added. And yes! We have a Christmas Stocking class that starts in October (we've never been this organized to mention October classes in August!) and we'll be confirming our sweater classes soon. After all, it's still the summer and we need our final fling with August!
