Project Knitalong...
On Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm we have our “Project of the Month” knitalong.  Socks will be the focus for our September KAL.  Print off the “Fruit Stripe Gum Socks”  pattern by Leah Oakley from Ravelry, bring size 1 or 1.5 double-pointed needles or 32” cord if you like to magic loop, and then come pick out a color of Universal Saki Bamboo yarn.  This easy  pattern looks like entrelac, but is much simpler.  Join us as we have fun this month making socks.  If you’ve never made socks and want to learn, then join Kelora’s Sock Class on Monday afternoons from 1-3 pm in September.

Need knitting/crocheting help on your project...
Just call the shop and see when we'll have room in one of our Weekly classes.  It's just $10 and our teachers can help get you back on track with your project.

Need a Bag Lining?
We all love to knit or crochet bags.  But many times the bags would be nicer with a lining.  Kelora is an excellent seamstress and would love to put a lining in your bags.  Just bring by your bag for her and she will contact you with  the cost of adding a lining to your creation. 

Blocking and Felting...
Many times we have heard folks say that they can't felt their project because they have a front-loading washer.  Or they know their garment should be blocked, but they are scared to do it.  Blocking will smooth out any wrinkles, stretch the garment out to the correct size, relaz the stitches so they are all more uniform and make the garment look and fit better.  We can provide these services for you.  Just bring in your projects to us for felting or blocking.  Cost is $10 per item.

We love to socialize...
It's always great to get together with other crafters while you work on a project.  Come bring your spinning wheel, your knitting needles or your crochet hook and your current project to our shop during our social times for an afternoon or evening of pure fiber enjoyment.

  • Monday afternoons (1-4 pm)
  • Thursday evenings (6-8 pm)

Cascade Yarn Tasting…
Mark your calendar for Friday, October 24 from
3-6 pm as we welcome our  Cascade rep, Mike
DiPetro.  Mike will be  bringing lots of Cascade yarns for you to sample...and lots of door prizes to give out.  We’ll be showcasing a few new Cascade yarns that we will be bringing into the shop.  It looks to be a fun afternoon!
Get Ready for Another Contest...
October's KAL will help us get ready for Christmas...and it involves a contest!  For each Christmas gift you make out of our  worsted/aran weight yarns, you will get the chance to win a great prize!  So come purchase your yarn, make your gifts, bring them in as you finish and let us display them for the rest of the month, and you could possibly win a great gift for yourself!  Come check out the gifts on display in order to get new ideas of gifts you can give to your family and friends for Christmas.
School Coupon Books...
Once again, The Yarn Haven is supporting our Knox County Schools by having a coupon in  their School Coupon Book this year.  I will be getting books from my grandchildren to sell.  So please let me know if you'd like for us to save one for you.  Books cost only $10 and have lots of great values.  Stop by and support our local schools.  I should have them the 2nd week of September, but act quickly as the books are only available about 2 weeks!
We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, tatting & felting supplies.
We also have over 500 unique buttons.

We are now open
on Monday nights until 8 pm!!!

Market Days...
On September 2—6 we will once again have our Market Days.  Market Days give you the opportunity to sell yarns in your stash that you no longer want, as well as any items for knitting, crocheting, spinning or weaving.  You will receive shop credit for anything that sells.  Cost is only $5...no matter how many items you bring in.  Print out a sheet of market day tags to fill out here.  Be sure to put your initials and an item number on each tag.  Then put each item in a Ziploc bag along with the tag.  Bring in the items you wish to sell the week before the  Market (August 25—30).  On Monday, September 8 you can come by and pick up any remaining items that didn’t sell as well as your store credit certificate.  Items bought during our Market Days need to be paid with cash or a check.  There are always some great buys during our Market Days, so be sure to come take a look and find that special treasure.
