Yarn Haven Rewards

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.
