Yarn Haven Rewards

Come in and pick up a punch card.  Present card each time you check out.  Punches will be given in $5.00 increments for your total purchase (excluding classes).  Once all $ are punched, present card with next purchase for a $10 reward!

It's our way of saying "Thank you for shopping at The Yarn Haven."
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 $15 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 tailor 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)

We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, tatting & felting supplies.
We also have over 500 unique buttons.

January Project Knitalong…

On Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm we'll be having a "Project of the Month" knitalong.  Each month we will focus on a different project to make.  For January...pick a bag...any bag...as long as it's felted.  Come join us as we kn or crochet a bag using wool yarn that we will eventually felt.  We'll have some suggestions for bag patterns and yarns if you don't have a favorite bag you've been wanting to do.  This knitalong is for knitters AND crocheters.

We have Market Days
3 times a year.  Click on the logo above to print out your tags.

Market Days…

Our next Market Days will be January 12 - 24.  We've extended it to 2 weeks because there are always so many items that it takes 2 weeks to sell most of it.  Market Days are days when you get to bring in your unwanted items for knitting, crocheting, spinning and weaving and sell them in exchange for store credit.  Cost is only $5...no matter how many items you bring in.  Click the Market Day logo to the right to print out a sheet of market day tags to fill out.  Be sure to put your initials in the corner so we'll know who sold each item.  Then put each item in a ziploc bag along with the tag.  Bring in the items you wish to sell during January 5-10.  On Monday, January 26 you can come by and get any remaining items 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 some great treasures.

Weekly Classes...

Our cost for Weekly Classes will be going up in January.  Individual classes will now be $12.50/class.  If you pay for the entire month before the month begins, then classes will still be $10/class.  In order to hold a spot in a particular class, you must pay for the entire month BEFORE the month starts.

Our 8th Anniversary...

On February 2, it will have been 8 years since The Yarn Haven open its doors.  Come celebrate with us on Saturday, January 31.  We'll have refreshments and you'll get to spin the wheel to see what discount you get.  You will also get double punches on your rewards cards!  Thanks for 8 wonderful years!
